It’s one of the oldest medicines in the world, so obviously it works. In that time, it has branched and deepened. it’s a lot more powerful and profound than what our society seems to realise, and can help resolve effectively any health issue anyone may have.
A bold claim! Happily, we are able to validate this ourselves by our own pragmatic exploration and experimentation.
The arms of this medicine octopus was intiated by Qigong; by the observation of the rhymthic, cyclical nature of… of nature, and then explored by replication within ones own system.
The other arms, respectively, are Acupuncture, Tuina Massage, and Herbal (which I don’t practice). They all interweave together, and have their own specialities of focus and application. Cupping and Moxibustion are in there somewhere, too, and perhaps can’t be categorized within any other… categories.
