Self Massage for Irritation
Spring can be a disturbing season with wild fluctuations of energy surging through nature. There is a strong momentum created by spring Qi. Spring bulbs thrust up through barely thawed ground. In humans the qi rises as well, moving up into the chest where it stimulates the liver with fresh vitality. Rising qi carries with it the potential for problems.This rising liver qi influences irritation, resentment and bitterness
If the liver contains any stagnant blood and metabolic waste, which is normal after winter’s inactivity it will obstruct the flow of qi. Any obstruction to the smooth and easy flow of qi will cause disruption to qi and blood circulation. Mentally and Emotionally this causes frustration and irritability. These exercises will release stagnation or obstruction of qi and blood in the liver. These knots can be undone with yin yoga, qigong, or self massage like we are doing today.
