  • Five Elements Corner: The Wood Element - Springtime is the Season of Renewal and Growth | Acubalance Wellness Centre

In Chinese Medicine, Springtime is associated with the Wood Element. When I am thinking about the Wood element, I am brought to one of my happy places: laying on the banks of a creek and gazing up at a ring of redwoods in northern California. From here, it is easy to marvel at the strength of Wood, but stay a bit longer and you see that the trees are not only strong, their strength is balanced with their suppleness and ability to bend flexibly with the winds. A healthy tree has its roots grounded firmly in the earth, and draws water from deep within to nourish its branches and leaves.
