The Bay Area saw a glorious transition to spring last week -- we're now shedding our heavy coats, hiding our umbrellas, and stepping out after work to greet the sun while it's still up. Spring is a wonderful time to focus anew on projects, goals, and relationships; eat lighter food; start moving more; and increase self-massage to bring our slumbering bodies back to life.
The seasonal transition can also bring imbalances, and children can be especially sensitive. The change in weather can tip our bodies into anger, frustration, and irritability. We may get allergies, headaches, eye disorders, premenstrual symptoms, and increased stress. If any of these seasonal complaints are bothering you or your children, give me a ring and we can get everything back to balance.
To support you during the spring season, I've created a new herbal tea blend that I'm super-excited about! These herbs focus on calming the nervous system, enabling clear focus, and providing the vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants to support your springtime activities. The blend has a base of the most divine tulsi leaves I've found, along with mint, sage, nettle, lemon rind, and buddha's hand. Mint is calming and soothing, sage supports digestion, nettle is full of vitamins and minerals, and citrus helps to support the nervous system and liver function. I'll be serving this smooth and balanced tea in the clinic throughout the season. Large tins are available for sale for $12.
If I haven't seen you in a while, drop me a note to let me know how spring is treating you. Enjoy the sun and the fresh energy!
