The notion of balance and harmony in Chinese medicine is symbolized by the image of Yin and Yang in constant transformation. Here is an acupuncturist’s analogy of Yin and Yang: Body and Substance are Yin, while Mind and Spirit are Yang. Now take a candle – if we were candles, the wax and wick would be our bodies – our Yin energy, and the warmth and the light – our Yang energy. Life is about transformation and commitment to light up purpose with our actions and relationships. Acupuncture is Yin & Yang medicine- take care and let it shine!
