Spring corresponds with the Wood Element, the meridians and organ function energies of Liver and Gallbladder. The energy is upward, the seeds planted before now breaking through the darkness of the soil into sunlight, reaching reaching for warmth. It begins with the Spring Equinox. This year on March 20 2018 at 2:58 PM (PST), just as our friends in the southern hemisphere is celebrating the Autumn Equinox, slowly slowing down to the quiet of the winter that we are now emerging from.

This vibrant time of fertility is of new beginnings, rebirths, and fresh starts. Isn’t it wonderful?

Move pillar of health and wellbeing What Therapy Power of Choice platform
The body is built to move. Physical movement has positive effects on and reflects movement on other levels, including mental flexibility and emotional harmony. Movement goes beyond exercising. Awareness of how we move helps us stay agile, responsive, and present. Conscious and embodied movement also illumines where we may have limited our state of being.

BREATHE

HEAL

heal at what therapy
In Chinese Medicine, there are three levels of dis-ease and well-being – the earthly level, the human level, and the celestial level. Each one requires a different focus though the elements are linked and interdependent. At the earthly level, we work with the environment, including the climate and the diet. At the human level, we look at our patterns of thought, emotions, and behaviour. Our fixation and attachment can lead to imbalance and even suffering. At the celestial level, we look at how we follow our heart as a way to fulfill our “destiny”. At What Therapy we believe that there are more than physical factors in play and look at the emotional, mental, and spiritual aspects of healing.

GLOW

While inner glow comes from what we ingest and how we feel, we believe we can add to our glow with clean non-toxic products. What we put onto our skin is so quickly absorbed, we can easily enhance our health by consciously choosing our skincare, makeup, and sunscreen. We are advocates of using beautiful products that are a delight to use and are better for us and the environment , whether they are commercially available or handmade in your own kitchen.

TRAVEL

Travel Pillar of Light What Therapy The Power of Choice
We live in a global village and most of us are travellers, whether it’s to the most remote reaches of Northern Norway or on a road trip to the next province or state. Travelling is a great way to engage with the greater world and see perspectives other than our own. It is an opportunity to experience local food, beauty rituals, healing traditions, and so much more. We believe travelling nurtures our curiosity and openness. It is a wonderful pause from our everyday routine to disengage from a set way of being. It is a positive disruption that asks us to live more presently.

Here we look at the what, why, and how of the principles and philosophies of everyday life.
