Ever heard that the Liver is affected by anger, or PMS is "a Liver thing"?

If this kind of Chinese Medicine wisdom, and the idea of understanding your own energetics in this way calls to you, contact me and let's connect about the next group journey I'm hosting around emotions and the Five Elements 💚
