HELP YOURSELF THIS SUMMER: Last updated 28 January 2021
SELF-HELP IS AT HAND
We all need a bit of help sometimes but it’s also good to help yourself. Summer, season of the Fire Element is well and truly here. Resolutions have been made. It’s time to get busy making the most of the rising energy of the season. Start by being sure that you are clear on your intentions and have the self-awareness and empowerment to make good on them. It’s imperative that you look after your energy – particularly energy of your Heart: “Queen of the System” and “Home of the Spirit”.

RESOLUTIONS, CONNECTION & SUMMER SPIRIT
I would love to see you for a seasonal Shiatsu
Perhaps a session on my mat is exactly what you need to kick-start, sustain or round off your Heart-nurturing Summer. Take note, however, there are already resources at your fingertips.
Get in touch with your Fire Element and Heart energy
I suggest you try Masunaga’s Makko Ho, simple Zen energy exercises to release and tonify the all four Summer meridians: Heart, Small Intestine, Heart Protector & Triple Heater.
Perhaps you would like to focus specifically on your Heart energy?
- Using Prayer pose to lift your Heart energy awareness, or
- Work a little harder and extend your Heart meridian.
Or maybe the Triple Heater meridian is where you could do with some help
Also known as the Triple Energizer &/or the Triple Burner, this is the most obscure of the Fire meridians – but nonetheless incredibly important. It manages our body heat, our ability to generate energy and the way in which we adapt to our environment – be it the cold of winter or the mood in the room.
- Discover how much Skin you have in the Triple Heater Game. Get some tips on how to lift its function generally and,
- More specifically, how to Build Your Upper Heater Energy
- Learn how to give yourself a mini-Shiatsu with this Triple Heater DO-IN Foundation Sequence
And there’s even a VIDEO!
