The Touchstone Triskele

The spiral and the triple spiral are among the oldest spiritual symbols created by humans.  The triskele is a triple spiral with equally spaced arms or legs. They are widely regarded as one of the oldest Irish symbols, appearing on Newgrange kerbstones dating to 3200 BC.

Triskeles feature prominently in ancient and modern Celtic art, evoking the interpretation of the three realms of material existence: earth, water, and sky and the corresponding interconnections. The symbol is also thought to represent the three worlds: spiritual, physical, and celestial, as well as the connection between Heaven, Earth and Man.

The triskele represents the eternal cycles of Life, and reminds us that, to every season, there is a purpose.  Blending the Celtic view of Life cycles with Traditional Chinese Medicine and the wisdom of the Tao allows us to support the health and wellness of the body, mind and spirit for every patient we encounter.
