Does your mind go everywhere? Do you overthink and create scenarios in your head?
When you know what you need to do but something is blocking you and it is just not happening. You feel stuck! It’s like a wall in front of you.
Somewhere you are stuck in indecision. It feels like monkey mind
According to TCM this describes the symptoms of Yin Defeciency so even tho’ you know your own mind you are too exhausted to carry out the Yang action.
This is one of the reasons I like to integrate my practices. TCM gives us he tools to balance our Yin and Yang and when these re in balance everything else falls into place we can then put those great tools of mindcoaching, CBT and goal planning into action.
I can help you get to the root cause of your in action
Mindcoaching is about being cognitive of what you say when you talk to yourself and rewriting the script in your head.
Mindcoaching is about taming that monkey mind and weeding out the gremlins. Its about getting to know what you say when you talk to yourself and finally letting go of those self sabotaging thoughts. Never underestimate the power of your mind.
Mindcoaching sessions are available online
time of year.
SELF HELP TIPS to keep your Qi moving in Spring:
I’m a great believer in doing what you can to help yourself and if for some reason you cannot book in for some acupuncture sessions here are a few things you can do.
First off remember you have just come through the Christmas and new year period so you may have consumed a lot of sugary and rich foods. Your body now wants to eliminate all of that so help it along. A dry January is a good habit especially if you are prone to a build up of mucous and especially to detox your liver.
Here you are:
- Limit (or eliminate) your intake of processed foods, dairy and alcohol .
- Eat more fresh vegetables and fruit.
- Start your mornings off with a light stretching exercise like yoga or tai qi.
- The warm weather offers you the perfect opportunity to get outdoors and exercise.
- Consume sour food and drinks. According to TCM, sour flavours stimulates Liver Qi.
- Use acupressure on Liver 3 point
- Book your acupuncture treatments.
There are over 2,000 acupuncture points spread across 20 meridians, but none hold as much weight for the spring season as Liver 3 (LV3). Located between the first (big toe) and second toes, the LV3 (also known as the ‘springtime acupressure point’) is an acupuncture point that’s particularly beneficial for this time of year. You can try it for yourself using acupressure by pressing your heel into this point.
Liver 3 lives up to its namesake by channeling energy between your liver; therefore, conventional wisdom should tell you to focus on this point during in spring.

Encourage the release of toxins from your body by taking a glass of water with lemon nd cider vinegar first thing in the morning and by increasing your water intake during the day.
