IMPROVE YOUR RELATIONSHIPS
With Eastern Medicine
Our lives can get busy, and relationship maintenance can fall to the wayside. When you turn to the internet to find tips and tricks on improving your relationship, the tips are all the same. Listening to each other and planning a date night is great, but what about other options?
Eastern medicine provides options for couples looking to improve their relationship with choices other than playing board games together. Let’s look at improving your relationship with Eastern medicine.
When considering date night ideas, being pricked with tiny needles isn’t usually the first thing on the list. Acupuncture is a form of traditional Chinese medicine that balances the flow of energy or life force known as Qi or Prana. It releases endorphins and supports the nervous system, so you leave feeling good!
Since acupuncture resets your energy and body systems, it can give you a new perspective on your relationship. If you and your partner have struggled to communicate, an acupuncture session could help provide clarity and help you to express stuck or repressed emotions. It can help you become more present with your partner, and be there for them in a way that you weren’t before. Plus, it’s a new activity you can try together!
If you’re having doubts about your relationship and want some clarity, consider Acupuncture. You’ll be able to clear your head and tackle any problems you’re having head-on. Let your acupuncturist know that you’re looking to improve your relationship so they can offer the best treatment strategy that will often also include herbal medicines.
A large part of traditional Chinese medicine is the use of herbs. There are herbal remedies for everything under the sun, including relationship issues. Sometimes relationship issues might be happening because of something else going on like increased stress or lack of sleep so herbs can help support the root cause
Stress can cause unnecessary fighting and other problems in the relationship and relationship issues can keep you up at night, resulting in even less sleep.

It’s known throughout Eastern and Western medicine that exercise can relieve stress. When your relationship is stressing you and your partner should try practicing tai chi together. Tai chi is the ultimate stress relief, and practicing together can greatly improve your relationship. It’s an ancient Chinese tradition that’s now practiced around the globe. What’s not to like about spending time together in the backyard or at the park getting your relaxation on?
Tai chi is typically described as meditation in motion. Sitting still and meditating isn’t for everyone, especially if you aren’t used to it. We spend our days constantly being entertained by screens and always being busy. Learning how to unplug and do tai chi with your partner will help you grow together.
Tai chi consists of gentle movements, and you can do it anywhere. You and your sweetie should pick a spot you’re both comfortable in to start your practice.
