“ I absolutely loved the Advanced Thai Yoga Massage course. I now feel more confident than before and the delivery of my technique has improved so much because of it. My clients have noticed a huge difference since attending Lucy’s training and their feedback has been very positive, which now means I have more clients from recommendations. Lucy is an excellent tutor and makes learning easy ” Scott Robertson, February 2017
The force that through the green fuse drives the flower Drives my green age; that blasts the roots of trees Is my destroyer. And I am dumb to tell the crooked rose My youth is bent by the same wintry fever.
On first glance this poem speaks of youth, hope and strength, a force for growth, like the arrival of spring, energising nature to re-emerge after winter. The poem expresses how this insistence toward growth may sometimes be matched with a resistance, or a sense of being stuck. When this arises, gently orienting towards yielding and flexibility allows the path toward growth to unfold and be revealed in it’s own time.
Springtime energy needs to flow, to get moving after the winter of stillness, and this may cause us to feel stiffness or tension in our bodies more keenly. Or, we may be inspired to take positive, renewing action in our life, but feel blocked, uncertain how to follow through. We can then experience frustration or fatigue in the face of these difficulties that seem to hold back progress.
This is the energy of the liver and gall bladder meridians in Shiatsu. Spring is the time to promote the smooth flowing of these powerfully creative and decisive energies. Gentle stretching, flexibility of mind, and opening of the heart can help. Eastern bodywork such as Shiatsu and Thai Massage include stretches and acupressure, which help to promote ease and flow, and bring us back to our natural inclination to growth and renewal in this season.
