About the philosophies: the Ancient Chinese way of life:
The philosophy of Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture not only see a person as a whole but also a whole as in conjunction with nature and reaching toward heaven (in the sense of spirituality and oneness attainment). People are urged to observe and maintain alignment with seasonal changes through the adjustment of activities and diets. Mirroring the nature as way to correlate with “the way of heaven”: Spring is about growth beginning and sprouting, Summer blooms, Fall and Winter conserves are examples how we plan our seasonal activities and mindset adjustments.
The same concept can be applied onto the days, months, and seasons! Setting an intention for the day when you wake up in the morning, set new goals during the phase of new moon, renewing or plow the soil for gardening in the Spring or starting a new year with a resolutions are all examples on practical applications of the concept of what Spring represent. It is crucial to take preventative measures as well (hold off outdoor activities in the late nights or winter days, since it’s the time (Winter) recommended to conserve and restore our Qi / energy) and act in accordance to each seasonal theme to ensure a smooth energetic transition.
These demonstrate the way of life style to maintain a harmonious connection with nature and heaven. Someone who goes against the “laws of nature” will hinder their energy flow and physical health. Our body is designed to rectify and constantly regulating and heal itself; any short term issues will be easily resolved by the body itself. Long term injury or a habitual condition will require a commitment to change and heal. Besides seeking for assistance to shift the stuck energy, actively change of lifestyle and mindset are essential to rapid recovery and achieve joyous healthy living.
Diet and exercises play a supporting role in health. Our awareness and mental state contribute to our state of “health”. Our body merely translates what's going on from within to signal and reflect what's bugging us. For example, you could experience some type of inflammation or flare after something or someone did something or said something that triggered an reaction-anger. Without the awareness, you might not link the cause and effect from emotional turbulence and blamed it on age, activities, or old injury.
Food have different energetic properties that helps to balance out the energetic imbalance just like herbal supplements but with milder effect. Exercise is essential as a means to detox, move and release stagnant energy to an extent. Many Classical Chinese exercises involve breathing techniques not only because it’s a major factor that’s keeping us alive but also help to maintain one’s focus and achieve awareness (similar to meditation and inner reflection).
Acupuncture and energy healing are most beneficial when you resonant with the principles and allow the process to promote or provoke self-healing responses. Healing process can be smooth for some and a bit rock for others. The focus will be on the end result where you wish to be.
There was so much ancient wisdom passed down to us but all boils down to being in tune with ourselves and with nature to be relatively healthy, joyous and enlightened. The word relative brings us to the core of Chinese philosophy which is the concept of Yin and Yang. We are relatively Yin or relatively Yang. Our body is constantly balancing and healing us at any given time. Any issue from the body is a signal of a condition we need to look into and sort out, we will be working closely together with our body. Each time we solve and understood an issue, we became wiser and happier, our life then relatively becomes better, body healthier, mind more peaceful, and manifest our very dreams.
