Five elements consist of wood, fire, earth, metal and water. However, each element does not indicate the material itself. It rather represents energy and movment related to each element. Among them, wood represents the energy springing up from the frozen ground.
Energy springing up from the frozen ground
The season of renewal and rebirth is upon us, and with it, the energy stored deep within the earth begins to stir, slowly emerging into the light of day. It slowly creeps forth, hidden beneath the frozen ground, waiting for the right moment to burst forth and bring life and color back to the world around it. It is at this time of year that the energy of nature takes on a more…physical form, as if to remind us that beneath the snow and ice, energy is still alive and well. It is at this time that the plants and trees begin to bloom, their fresh colors providing a much-needed burst of energy to the world around them.
Wood indicates the energy or movement springing up from the frozen ground. Imagine that the high pressure builds up underground in the winter. And then, the energy becomes released, with plants surfacing on the ground in the spring.
In my treatments, I regulate pulses to bring the body and mind into harmony. When each pulse becomes harmonious, our body is ready to return to its normal condition.
