Summer Season Health Care with Chinese Medicine
What is it about?
How should we take care of ourselves on hot summer days? In traditional Chinese medicine, we adapt to the season, prevention and protection of your body and mind. Everyone knows the saying ‘a calm heart keeps you cool’ – and this is why summer season pays special attention to clearing and cooling the mind: We use the energetic power of Qi to achieve happiness and harmony.
Through this course of lectures, the Chinese medicine practitioner will share with you practical and valuable summer-related lifestyle advice, cooling herbal tea recipes as well as knowledge on massage, acupressure points and energy channels. This will help you to stay relaxed while naturally ensuring your body’s health and keeping yourself beautiful from inside to outside!
Why is it important?
In 2016, summer has started on May 5th according to the lunar calendar. The first summer month is connecting spring and summer: All living things are growing, warmth is spreading, thunderstorms are becoming more common and crops on the fields are beginning to sprout. It won’t be long until Summer Solstice will be celebrated on June 21th!
The temperatures will continue to rise, and the real heat will arrive 20 to 30 days after summer solstice, from mid-July until mid-August. During this time, many people suffer from “summer diseases”, such as demotivation, exhaustion and a blurred mind due to the excessive heat. More the reason to stay active and prepare yourself early on for the hot days coming up!
