The Five Elements of Chinese Medicine Saturday 8pm
Chinese Medicine uses the five elements of Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal, and Water to describe the interaction between a body’s organs. In addition to being associated with certain organs, each element also relates to other qualities, including a specific color, season, emotion, taste, and healing sound. In this program, guests will receive an overview of the five elements of Chinese medicine and will learn qigong exercises and healing sounds that relate to each element and its associated organs. These exercises focus on improving circulation and digestion and strengthening the respiratory and nervous systems.
