Spring is back , and even though it's (still) raining here in the great Northwest, it's time to at least start acting like summer is on it's way! Spring cleaning season is a great time to clean out your closets, prepare for the potential summer abundance from our gardens by caring for the soil and planning gardens, and everything else that's been put off due to winter weather. Get outside and enjoy the vitamin D when the sun shines for a few minutes!
Here are some posts from acupuncture blogs around the US with tips on a healthy spring, and just a little inspiration to get you motivated.

The body needs to find a balance first, and these are all signs that the body is working towards balance of the mind and body.
