Asian Bodywork

Asian Bodywork

Monitoring and increasing the flow of the vital life energy (qi/chi/ki) is at the heart of Asian bodywork and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).

TCM is a complete and complex system of medicine and philosophical concepts which were developed in China and are based on a tradition of more than 2,000 years.

The theories of TCM come from such books as the “Yellow Emperor’s Inner Canon”, as well as in cosmological and Taoist notions like Yin-Yang and the five elements (wood, fire, earth, metal, water). TCM’s view of the body places little emphasis on anatomical structures, but is mainly concerned with the identification of functional entities (which regulate digestion, breathing, aging etc.).

While health is perceived as harmonious interaction of these entities and the outside world, disease is interpreted as a disharmony in interaction. TCM diagnosis includes tracing symptoms to patterns of an underlying disharmony.
