Water Element



Welcome to your water element practices!

Water element practices focus on toning the central nervous system, vagus nerve, kidneys, adrenals, psoas, and the entire backline of the body. They are related to the bladder and kidney meridians of five-element theory that is foundational in Acupuncture.


This intention and focus in attention in the water element practices specify and increase the benefits you receive from them, helping you to:


Release fear, anxiety, nervousness, stress, and tension in your physical, mental, and emotional bodies — deepening your trust, confidence, and sense of safety within yourself, your relationships, and the actions you take in the world.

Let’s begin.

Water Element EFT-Tapping

If you’re new to the EFT-tapping practice or unfamiliar with the EFT-tapping points, watch this short video to learn the tapping points, their individual benefits, and how you can utilize them at anytime you’re in need.

Take a seat in a comfortable position, and let yourself settle in for your water element EFT practice.

Water Element Meditation

Optional Yin Posture for Meditation: Legs Against the Wall

Viparita Karani, legs up the wall pose, is optional to rest into during your guided water element meditation. Watch the brief video below for an easy transition into and out of this posture if you’re unfamiliar with this posture.

Modifications for this pose:

If your hamstrings are tight, you can lie with more distance between the wall and your legs. If your back is tight, doing this without a cushion beneath the lower back may feel better. You can also use a cushion under your head or neck if you feel any tension in your neck while lying down.

Whatever your set-up, it should feel really, really good!

Ten minutes of meditation in this posture equals one hour of deep sleep! It also:

  • Detoxifies the blood while reducing varicose veins and swelling in the lower body
  • Reduces stress, fatigue, exhaustion, anxiety, depression, and insomnia
  • Alleviates mild backache, menstrual cramps, and menopause symptoms
  • Provides migraine and headache relief and improves ear and eye ailments

Now choose to lie with your legs against the wall or however is most comfortable for your meditation.
