Shiatsu & Flower Remedies | Fire Element
Time & Location
What to expect
Summer is on the horizon, how do you feel in the Summer? Do you thrive or feel like it is more of a challenging time where things can be overwhelming?
In oriental medicine the Fire element is closely linked with Heart, Heart Protector, Triple heater and Small Intestine meridians. The imagery of flowers blossoming, giving off their sweet aroma and vibrant colour, seducing pollinators, illuminates the the power and potency of the fire energy around us at this time of year. These opening and outward shifts of energy are happening all around us and can also occur within us, which are embodied by the 4 meridians listed above. If this outward fire energy becomes so open it tends to feel scattered, which can lead to anxiety, poor sleep, manic behaviour or feelings of overwhelm. If there is harmony in your fire energy, you will be able to blossom within yourself and with your surroundings, thriving from this time of peak energy and activity, whilst still being able to find moments of calm.
In the two and half hours you will experience:
- Flower remedies - with Eleanor Darley & Heloise Tunstall-Behrens
- Shiatsu treatment working on Fire energy - with Joy Rose
- Acutonics with Joy Rose
- Gaining a basic understanding of the Fire element in oriental medicine.
