I will be out of the country for most of May

Please note that I will be unavailable for classes, or treatments from May 10th-June 1st.
I will be doing some advanced training at a Daoist Temple in China and will have no access to phone or internet for most of this time.

All classes will be cancelled during this time, and I will not be able to respond to phone calls.
All student memberships will be extended into June to accommodate my absence.

We will resume classes on June 4th for the morning class and June 8th for the evening class.

Thank you so much for your patience during this time.

Liver, Spring, and the Element of Wood

In the Five Element system, Water generates Wood. Spring unfurls from the cold stillness of winter and bursts into vibrant, expansive growth.
The Yin and Yang Organs associated with the springtime, and with the element of Wood, are the Liver and Gallbladder. In Chinese Medicine, the Liver is responsible for the smooth flow of Qi and Blood throughout our bodies. When our Qi is not flowing smoothly in all directions, we become stagnant. We become less flexible. And wood is strongest when it can flex and bend with the winds of change.
