Happy Year of the Rooster to you all! January 28th marked the start of the two week celebrations for Chinese New Year.
We are pleased to announce that after much trial and many modifications we have made range of Quiescence Therapeutics skin balms, healing oils and facial clays. They have been designed to both enhance your treatment and to add a little herbal magic to your day.
Spring is an amazing time in the garden, as Yang emerges from the extremes of Yin we see blossoms and growth everywhere. Liver energy is highest during Spring giving us the momentum to move forward into Summer and the opening of the heart energy.
Do you struggle to fit breakfast in in the mornings? It seems to be a common theme with our busy lifestyles. In clinic we frequently brainstorm ways to help people get this all important meal in.
Hot cross buns are simply the best, I don’t know anyone who doesn’t like them. Lucky for me my husband loves baking bread. This is his hot cross bun recipe.
Here at Quiescence we believe you should practice what you preach! We shared this Into Mind post focussing on the fresh start effect to kick start the new year with the “30-Day Minimalism Challenge”. This February, Annalise decided to take on the challenge herself.
From the sudden growth of Spring, Summer is born. Wood turns into Fire, the utmost of Yang. The rapid growth of Spring slows slightly to a more sustainable rate, the gardens are full of produce and life is ideally a little easier.
So much of Chinese philosophy is grounded in balancing yin and yang, and this goes for exercise too. Often times if we are a yang personality, or we’ve had a particularly stressful day, we are drawn to more energetic forms of exercise.
We all know it is true what they say about laughter being good for the soul. Well, now it seems to be a good medicine, especially for those struggling with fertility.
Spring – Time for Renewal According to the philosophy of Chinese medicine we are all part of the makeup of the natural universe, intricately connected to the flux of the season. Whilst winter was a time to conserve energy and rest, spring is a time of sudden growth and regeneration.
