You have a dynamic natural energy within you that seeks to grow, be inspired and expand your aliveness. Your journey to wellness involves keeping your spirt alive by living in harmony with the five elements. The healing power of Wood plays a big role in achieving this vital balance.

For your personal growth, cultivate your will to become the best you can be. Your motivation and growth is governed by the wood element. If it’s blocked, you are likely to feel sluggish, stiff, stuck or depressed. Daily stretching and eating green vegetables is good for your growth. Stiffness indicates that your wood element, which is nurtured by the Liver and Gall Bladder points and meridians, needs attention.


When you get stressed, use your will to breathe slowly and deeply to avoid the tendency of becoming defensive or irritable. Acupressure techniques can help you release stagnant energy during challenging times by releasing frustration, tension, and body stiffness.

Stretching a few times a day for flexibility benefits your Wood element.

Stretching also cultivates mental flexibility and an open mind. When your body is more flexible, it prevents sluggishness, headaches and rigid judgements in your mind. The Acupressure point formulas for opening the Liver and Gall Bladder can actually treat excessive judgements, anger, frustrations and irritability. By using Acupressure points to open your Wood element, you can release these negative attitudes and transform anger to enhance your personal growth.

If your Wood element gets blocked, you may find that you tend to be judgmental, either towards yourself or others. Remember that your healing journey involves cultivating self-compassion and embracing acceptance. Acupressure can support you in releasing and balancing judgments to find inner peace.

You can naturally make wise choices, plans, decisions
and set your boundaries when your wood element is healthy.

However, wood oriented people commonly struggle with setting their limits and boundaries. Acupressure can support you in this aspect by working with specific points on the Liver and Gall Bladder meridians that open and balance the energy of your wood element. By releasing these blockages and allowing your energy pathways to flow freely, you can communicate in a rooted, empowering way, standing your ground and asserting yourself appropriately.

Your inspiration and vibrant spirit can fulfill your life’s potential.

As a Wood type, your natural inspiration and self-motivation comes from spiritual roots. Your spirit and aliveness is governed by your Liver which also nurtures your soul. When your Liver is healthy your eyes reflect clearly as the windows of your soul. Your Liver’s health naturally allows you to LIVE with more spirit.

Embrace the dynamic and resilient nature of Wood. Let Acupressure be your guide on this journey of growth and self-discovery. By working with your Liver and Gall Bladder meridians, you can unlock the full potential of your Wood element and experience the mental clarity needed to make wise decisions in your life.

Wishing you abundant growth, vibrant health, and a radiant spirit on your healing journey.

With many blessings,
