The Yin and Yang of Wellness

I’ve written about how the Taoist concept of the dynamic interface between yin and yang is the foundation of all things. Modern science has proven that everything in existence vibrates. That you must have a dynamic interface between a negative and positive (yin & yang) to create a vibration which is energy. Last week I wrote about the human energy field and how modern science and ancient wisdom agree that vital energy can dictate the degree of our well-being.

In Taoist energy wellness treatments, human organs are divided into yin organs and yang organs. The lungs, spleen/pancreas, heart, and liver are yin organs. The large intestine, stomach, small intestine, bladder/urinary tract and gallbladder are yang organs. When there is a balance in the flow of energy in our body we are well. When there is an imbalance of the flow of energy in our body we become ill.

Negative emotional stress is a major cause of illness, and the imbalance of yin and yang organs. Sorrow and grief can cause an imbalance in the large intestine and lung. Worry can cause an imbalance in the stomach and spleen/pancreas. Over excitement can cause an imbalance in the heart and small intestine. Fear/apprehension can cause an imbalance in the bladder and kidney. And anger/frustration can cause an imbalance in the gallbladder and liver. We all suffer from negative emotional stress because we are very seldom in the present. All too often our thoughts are on the frustrations and grief of the past, or the fear and anxiety of the future.

When the vital flow of energy is blocked by negative emotion, or stress, it is important to turn that stressed voice in our head off, and experience the harmony and balance of the present. The ancient Korean art of Chunsoo is an excellent way to bring balance to the flow of vital energy in the body. Ki energy masters use sound vibration and touch to open energy blockages; allowing the body’s electromagnetic energy to flow through interlocking energy channels, creating the feeling of relaxation and harmony.

Allegra Taylor writes in her book, Healing Hands, that “The energy that activates another human being’s failing recuperative powers of life-force has been called unconditional love. It is non-judgemental and compassionate. By creating a channel through which this loving energy flows…a healer can speed up, sometimes to an astonishing degree, the revitalizing process”.

The foundation of Chunsoo treatments is unconditional love. The treatments will relax you and allow your body to rejuvenate. Relaxation can be very healing, but most people just don’t know how to relax. A major reason why so many suffer from stress related illness.
