Have you ever felt stuck in your body? Maybe you have experienced pain, cramping or muscle fatigued? Or perhaps you have felt overwhelmed with emotions and just cannot shift the feeling?
Stagnation is a term used in Traditional Chinese Medicine to explain a disturbance, imbalance or blockage of energy, blood or fluid. Stagnation frequently arises due to chronic stress, physical or emotional trauma, infection or disease processes, exposure to external toxins, poor diet or a sedentary lifestyle. Some people may have an inherent predisposition to stagnation.
The manifestation of stagnation can present in different ways for individuals and can include but is not limited to these symptoms:
- Hormonal Imbalances leading to menstrual problems, hormone headaches, pre-menstrual tension
- Body aches and pains affecting muscles and joints
- Mental overload leading to the monkey mind phenomena, over-thinking, negative self-perception, difficult focusing and general dis-ease restlessness
- Autonomic Nervous System imbalance which may contribute to some respiratory system disorders, digestive upsets, heart palpitations
