Winter Through the Eyes of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)

According to TCM, the element of Winter is Water and corresponds to the Kidney and Bladder meridians. The Kidney and Bladder meridians run through the leg. Maladies associated with Kidney and Bladder disharmonies include lower back problems, insomnia, impotence and infertility, poor memory, and problems with urination among others.


In TCM Kidney “Qi” (energy) is considered the root of all the other meridians so it is very important to keep it tonified.  Kidney Essence declines with old age and is associated with the signs of aging such as hearing problems, low back and knee pain/achiness and memory problems.

Points on the Kidney meridian can help with most of the symptoms mentioned above as well as a variety of other issues. Remember, it’s important to keep your Kidney Qi in good shape so come in for regular Shiatsu!
