The mornings are lighter, the days are becoming longer and the vitality of Spring is all around us. The seasonal change is not just reflected in daylight hours, it brings with it many things; from changes to the physical world we see, to new seasonal foods to a feeling that we’re coming out of hibernation. But how else does it affect our health?
Each season has its own Qi (energy)
Each season has its own Qi which is related to the element of the season. There are 5 elements and 4 seasons. The element for spring time is wood which represents growth, movement and change. and these different seasonal energies ies are related to different internal organs. The wood element, and so the spring season, relates to the liver. For Spring, the internal organ related to this season is the liver.
If the energy in our liver is unbalanced – energy rises up and down - the Ssymptoms which indicate an imbalance of energy in our liver can feel strongerintensify as springtime arrives. The liver is very important in maintaining a smooth flow of energy and blood which in turn maintains our emotions, in particular anger, frustration and stress. An unbalanced liver can bring about heightened stress and anger levels which can be exaggerated in spring.
5 common symptoms related to energy imbalances in the liver:
If energy in your liver rises too strongly, you can experience headaches at the top of your head
Similarly, if energy is rises ing stronger in the liver than it is falling, it can cause elevated blood pressure
Unbalanced liver energy can result in mood swings or irritable, angry moods. A balanced liver helps us more effectively manage our emotions.
An unbalanced liver can lead to issues with our eyes as they are the connected windows to our liver. Issues with eyesight A change in vision such as blurry vision, floateand rs, dry or itchy eyes may be the result.
Digestive issues like indigestion, bloating and burping can occur, especially in springtime. The Liver has a very close relationship with the Stomach: it provides unconditional support for the Stomach and its partner organ, the Spleen. So if the Liver’s energy is too strong, it can impact the Stomach and the process of digestion.

Natural remedies for de-toxing and rebalancing the liver
At Jung Shim, we practice Chunsoo Treatments that help balance energy channels. The treatments are particularly effective in detoxifying the body. In removing toxins from the liver and balancing the flow of energy between the liver and its partner organs, Chunsoo treatments help to release the negative emotions and physical ailments associated with liver problems.
Chunsoo Treatments open the energy system by releasing blockages through pressing acupressure points all over the body to stimulate energy and blood flow. (It is a similar principle to acupuncture but without needles.)
However, it is unique in that a breathing technique is used at the same time to intensify the treatment. This specific sound and vibration is used to open the energy channels and transmit Qi (energy) deeper into the body.
