Yin Yang Mode

Never Isolate either mode

Our body is evolved in such a way that it naturally switches between sympathetic and parasympathetic mode to maximize our chances of survival. Sympathetic mode can be seen as a Yang state  in which we actively engage with the surroundings and others, by being alert so that we can appropriately adjust our boundaries and expand our potentials. Yang Qi protects the integrity of our existence. Parasympathetic mode can be seen as a Yin state in which our pre-natal spirits retreat inwardly and focus on transporting and transforming what is incorporated into our existential realms. All forms of contact (what we see, smell, hear, taste, digest, feel, etc.) lead to a process of integration and exclusion. Yin, being congenital, prenatal, and the Yang, being postnatal or acquired. Prenatal Jing is acquired at birth from the parents; the Fathers Sperm and the mother’s Ovum this is a similar concept to DNA and Postnatal Jing is acquired after birth through food, water, oxygen, environmental and social conditions very much like the concept epigenetics.

The Overview

The Combined Approach

Micro & Macro Environment Idea. Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) is currently the best-preserved and most influential traditional medical system with the largest number of users worldwide. Chinese medicine is based on a holistic approach, while Western medicine is based on a reductionistic approach. There are many strengths of TCM in the treatment of diseases that are not found in Western medicine. For example, in the treatment of cancer, Western medicine often takes the tumor mass reduction as the ultimate goal, regardless of normal cells; while the TCM in addition to tumor inhibition, but also intend to alleviate the symptoms, strengthen the body resistance, improve the quality of life, prolong the survival time of cancer patients for the therapeutic purpose. With the progress of society and changes in the human disease spectrum, the medical model has undergone tremendous changes; people are not simply seeking disease treatment but are focusing on the comprehensive management of disease prevention, treatment, and health protection

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.


We Train Teachers Too!

Qigong & *Tai Chi

Whole Body Connect

Tai Chi Quan or Taji Quan; helps us to separate the yin and yang of the body while in motion, within this stillness it 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/cauldron of life

Not all exercises or sports have a powerful effect on the health of your internal body.

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 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)

Qi Gong and *Tai Chi 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 it 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 ensuring a calm relaxation state; ensuring good health.
