Chinese New Year: What is “Chinese” at Balance Health?

February 8 will be the first day of the Year of the Monkey! The Monkey is a smart and clever animal, associated with the elements of Metal and Wind. Metal corresponds to Gold and Wind represents Change. According to Chinese Astrology and based on these two components, the Year of the Monkey is expected to be a year of important financial events that will change very quickly. This can mean a lot: sudden success, prosperity, recovery from the economic crisis, but also stress and anxiety for many of us, directly affecting our health.

For this reason, a special focus on health and stress management will be fundamental this year to keep our inner balance and don’t lose our energies because of our worries and anxieties. Managing change has never been easy but with the right help and with specific techniques, it is possible to stay balanced and happy throughout the year.

At Balance Health, we have a lot of therapies to support you in keeping your balance and staying healthy. Among these, we offer some treatments that are just right for the occasion. Join us for a fully oriental experience, on a journey to understand the core meaning of what Chinese is at Balance Health.
