After the Winter, the joints need to get moving with more vigorous activity. If your Spring-time, or Wood, energy is not moving smoothly (as indicated by symptoms in the early Spring of headaches, pre-menstrual syndrome, sluggishness, aggravated joint or eye problems), the body may be craving more movement. When movement is limited or painful, use the support of a professional massage therapist to increase the flow of blood through your fascia, joints, and muscles. Increasing physical activity will not only improve joint function but will assist the body in cleansing stagnant residue from the heavier foods consumed in Winter.
