Fall is a beautiful time of year, and just as the trees seek to find balance by releasing their leaves, we can also find balance this season with Eden Energy Medicine (EEM). Thousands of years ago, the Chinese mapped out the Five Elements or Rhythms. This system offers us an understanding of the processes within nature, as well as within our bodies.
Metal is the element in this Five Rhythm model that represents Autumn. Just as the organs associated with this element, Lung and Large Intestine, are all about releasing things in the body that are no longer needed, the element itself is all about letting go.
Working with the Lung and Large Intestine Meridians (energy pathways in the body) can help us to feel more balanced during this time of year. Deeply massaging points associated with these two Meridians called Neurolymphatic points (NL) can help. Large Intestine NL points are located on the outside of the thigh and Lung NL points are in the middle of the chest. Rub the whole area that is associated with these points deeply (see diagram). If any point is sore, then you definitely need to work with them.
