It’s a month away, but we will reap the benefits of feeling great come autumn, by what we do today. Our health next season, is determined in great part by how we take care of ourselves now. Drink plenty of water, eat plenty of fruits and vegetables and, keep the intestinal flow moving! Moving our bowels daily and fully is key to a strong immune system. You can give yourself a belly massage in bed before you fall asleep, and/or when you wake, before getting out of bed.
How to do it: Imagine your belly button is the center of a clock. Three finger widths away from your navel, press and gently massage this acupuncture points around the clock, 1, 2, 3 o’clock (clockwise). Then take both hands and smooth everything down from the bottom of your ribs down your abdomen.
Acupuncture works very well to stimulate the bowels, helps the body eliminate toxins and supports your body’s ability to self regulate.
