Acupuncture in the Treatment of Fertility and Menstrual Disorders

Acupuncture in the Treatment of Fertility and Menstrual Disorders

Fertility can be a delicate issue for many. There are many internal and external factors that can affect the fertility of a couple. This week we will be focusing on the trajectory of the Chong Mai and its relationship to female fertility stages.

The Chong Mai is also known as the Sea of Blood and it the traditionally thought of as the ‘blueprint’ of an organism. It is one of the first meridians to develop after a child is born. It directs the evolution of the person from birth to death along specific life cycles.  For women, these cycles occur in 7 year increments.

Acupuncture, diet and lifestyle can support couples who are eager to have children as well as a healthy sexual life through these cycles of change. It can be used alone or in conjunction with conventional fertility procedures.

For support outside of fertility, the treatment of the Chong Mai, can also be supportive for conditions such as menopausal symptoms, premenstrual tension syndrome, polycystic ovarian syndrome, menorrhagia, amenorrhea or endometriosis.

Embracing the Divine and Wrathful Feminine

Embracing the Divine and Wrathful Feminine

We are smack in the middle of the season of Metal, the season of letting go, decay, destruction  where base materials begin their process of transformation to precious ones.

The season of the dark feminine, where the leaves fall to the ground and decay into darkness. We are in the entropic movement into the most yin of yin, the space of the Dark Goddess.

This is a time to examine our collapse, to be in the violent inward collapse in purpose of transformation. To process the grief and mourning of ourselves and ancestors and begin the descent upwards.

It is through this collapse we break the binary hold our view has on the world. The limited view that creates violence and fear blocking us from the spiritual heights that leads humans toward their unlimited potential for love and creativity.

By embracing the divinity hidden in each of us, we unlock this power.

Realize your ability to create fundamental shifts in yourself and the world surrounding you.
Make an offering today.
Begin a practice today.
Purge material items today.
Create the positive and good intentions that are born from the darkness.
Know what is authentically important to you and support that direction no matter what.
Stay the course. Weathering any storms.

Honor the dark place, the place of decay and destruction.
The decay that nourishes the future of yourself and the surrounding world.
Embrace the feminine, the Divine and Wrathful feminine.
