SPRING, SEASON OF CREATIVE ENERGY
According to Chinese medicine, the spring season is associated with the liver organ and the wood element. The wood element, or rather the wood “movement” according to the theory of the five elements, is a powerful, rising, even explosive energy. It corresponds to the energy needed for buds to blossom after winter.
Spring is the season of awakening, and it’s a season when man, too, rediscovers the urge to act, to move.
When liver energy is balanced, it manifests itself in a desire to create, a burst of ideas, a need for movement and change. As the muscular system is linked to this season, it’s best to focus on muscle stretching to promote suppleness and elasticity in muscles and tendons.
