#Mental Health Awareness Week -Shen
By tackling stress, we can go a long way to tackle mental health problems such as anxiety and depression, and, in some instances, self-harm and suicide. We will look at how we can tackle stress and help improve our mental health.
When treating with my patients with traditional five element acupuncture one aspect we work with is the Shen which can be translated as “Spirit” or “Mind”, and implies our consciousness, mental functions, mental health, vitality, and our “presence”. When our Shen is healthy we are stringer in our heart, therefore more able to cope with the stresses in this world.
Jing, Qi and Shen are the “three treasures” in traditional five element acupuncture . They represent three different states of condensation of Qi, ranging from Jing (more fluid, more material) to Qi, more rarefied, and Shen, more rarefied and immaterial.
Traditional five element acupuncture treats each person on the level that is needed not by any protocol but by each person’s need.
Come and give your shen some love for treatment contact;-
