Martial Art Therapy

The Overview

The Approach that Combines. The idea for a Micro and Macro Environment

Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) is the most well-preserved and influential traditional medical system in the world, with the largest number of practitioners.

Western medicine adopts a reductionistic approach, whereas Chinese medicine adopts a holistic approach.

TCM seems to have numerous advantages in the treatment of diseases that Western medicine appears to lack.

For example, in the treatment of cancer, Western medicine frequently prioritizes tumor mass reduction over normal cell survival, whereas TCM aims to alleviate symptoms, strengthen body resistance, improve quality of life, as well as extend cancer patients’ survival time for therapeutic reasons, in addition to tumor inhibition.

With the advancement of society and changes in the human disease spectrum, the medical paradigm has experienced significant modifications; people now are focusing on disease prevention, treatment, and health protection rather than just disease treatment.

Train For Self Care

Maintaining one’s health requires a 360-degree approach.
Life’s ultimate impetus is survival.

“To heal another, one must first heal themselves.”

The essential fundamental building blocks that are beneficial for the therapeutic Chinese martial arts practices of Tai Chi Quan, Qigong, and its supplementary, TCM therapy include Chinese martial arts aka Kung Fu, Daoist healing, and its philosophies.

TCM’s nucleus would include Tui Na, Bonesetting, Chinese herbs, and Acupuncture. They are unable to be separated.

Tuina martial art therapy2

In the past, the master not only taught the student to fight but to heal as well. It would be beneficial for the student to complement their training of the art with TCM knowledge; to connect to the body functioning and flow of energy; as used for defense against an opponent. For example, the very same technique used in the manipulation of joints and accomplishing the “death touch” is easily transformed to assist healing. Tui Na is often called De Da Sun Sang (fall, hit, damage, injury) is one such method; specifically dealt with in the Chinese martial arts/Kung Fu style of *Chin Na/Qinna.  All martial arts contain *Chin Na techniques to some degree.

*ChinNa/Qinna (Chinese: 擒拿; pinyin: qínná; Wade–Giles: ch’in na) is the set of joint lock techniques used in the Chinese martial arts to control or lock an opponent’s joints or muscles/tendons so they cannot move, thus neutralizing the opponent’s fighting ability. QinnaShu (Chinese: 術; pinyin: shù meaning “technique”) literally translates as lock catch technique. Some schools simply use the word na (“hold”) to describe the techniques. Qinna features both standing and ground-based grappling techniques.

I have heard of Dim Mak aka Death Touch?

The very same techniques used in accomplishing the “death touch” and other defense moves are easily transformed to assist healing; by stretching, resetting, and re-aligning. Tui Na Chinese massage therapy is often referred to as Bone-setting, De Da Sun Sang(fall, hit, damage, injury) medicine. Its role in Traditional  Chinese Medicine and has been used for more than 3,000 years. Mostly practices by skilled martial arts practitioners to heal students when injured, emotional or energy trauma caused during training.

Same techniques used in “death touch” and defense moves; easily transforms toward healing.

Chinese martial arts, Daoist healing, and its philosophies form the fundamental building blocks which are beneficial toward the healing The Chinese martial arts/Kung Fu practices of Tai Chi Quan, Qigong, and its complementary, Traditional Chinese Medicine therapies; differ from other exercises, as all movements are performed in a “relaxed way”; by stretching, resetting, and re-aligning.

The TuiNa, Tai Chi & Qigong Link

Heal Both The Healer & Patient

Tai Chi Quan or Taiji Quan; helps us to separate the yin and yang of the body while in motion, within this stillness helps to harmonise yin and yang, allows activation of the meridians and collaterals, enhance the regulation and flow of Qi and blood circulation, balance and stabilise the central equilibrium,  works on the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system, relaxes the physical body, defines and distinguishes between the principle of full and empty allowing our whole gravity to drop down completely, allows the sinking of Qi into the lower dantian also called the cauldron of life

Qi Gong and Taiji were invented to find the balance within this paradox stated in prior information.

During our practice, we train our body to explore the dynamic balance between tension and relaxation.

It matters less which style we practice, the goal is to adjust our breathing patterns so that our body tells our brain that we are safe.

On the other hand, the tension in the brain exhausts a ton of energy — our brain is an extreme fuel-burning machine that if it is busy, our body won’t have much 精 Jing (ancestral/sexual essence) left to be stored in our organs. 

Qi Gong and Taiji help our brain relax, and it is proven that practicing Qi Gong and Taiji helps the body absorb more oxygen and allow more space between joints.

These spaces are where Qì flows and where our consciousness is carried to ensure a calm relaxation state; ensuring good health.

Qigong and Tai Chi or internal Martial Arts; cultivate an inner awareness of what is happening in our physical bodies.

Training beyond the reliance on weight, force, and speed. It is the practice of the Dao/Tao, or`Way of Life’; understood as the pivotal principle of balance in action.

The principle is *Wu-Wei-“effortless action”. Yin and Yang are at play; by the transformation of the energies of the universe.

The principles improve and amplify; body regener­ation and rejuvenation, biomechanics, bone health, and internal organ health.

*Wuwei, (Chinese: “nonaction”; literally, “no action”)  in Chinese philosophy, and particularly among the 4th- and 3rd-century-BCE philosophers of early Daoism (daojia), the practice of taking no action that is not in accord with the natural course of the universe.

Jīng (ChineseWade–Giles) is the Chinese word for “essence”, specifically kidney essence. Along with  and shén, it is considered one of the Three Treasures San jiao 三寶 of traditional Chinese medicine or TCM.

*(Tai Chi (also spelt Taiji, or fully as Taijiquan 太極拳)
