Finding “Balance”

Balance within ourselves and our environment is key to living a happy and healthy life. This belief is deeply rooted in Chinese Medicine theory. It is this concept of balance that led me to name the practice “Fine Balance.”

“Fine” represents not only the fineness of the needle but also how much care is needed to find that ideal “Balance.” The symbol of yin and yang represents two complementary concepts which include the relationships of: dark and light; dynamic and static; creative and destructive; obvious and subtle. Yin and Yang represent two forces which are bound together and interdependent; one can not exist without the other. If you look closely at the symbol, you will see yin within yang and yang with yin. However, these forces are not constant- nothing remains the same in life. Disease, symptoms, emotions, and treatments are constantly changing, as are the events of our daily life.

Your healthy state is created by the right balance of yin and yang. The concept of balance applies to ALL aspects of our life. The right balance of play vs. work, healthy food vs. decadent ones, rest vs. activity, and togetherness vs. solitude. Therefore, it is imperative to make choices that contribute to finding that “Fine Balance” within our lives.
