Emotion in QI-Motion, what’s that?
There’s a connection between emotion and the body’s physical energy. Tapping into this knowledge can help you get the most out of life.
TCM, the MIND-BODY CONNECTION, and TREATMENT
One of the fascinating aspects of Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is its ability to address mental health issues. I’ve always been fascinated with the aspect of TCM because of the physical-mental-emotional-spiritual links established in TCM theory that provide ways for a practitioner to assess and treat disorders.
For example, a patient who has issues with Anger exacerbates this problem by stressing the system associated with ones Liver. The Liver in TCM is not only the discreet organ we know in Western physiology but also the extension of it through its Meridians that course in specific paths around the body.
The Liver is an organ system responsible the smooth flow of QI through the body, so damage related to Anger tends to result in rough QI movement, to use some crude analogies again, sort of like someone took random frames out of your movie film or some kind of imbalances in your tires as you drive down the road. Therefore, one of the treatment methods would be to select Acupuncture points associate with the Liver meridian as well as points known to regulate QI movement.
Some of these could be correlated with the Western physiology understanding of chemical interrelationships but the TCM model is a holistic interpretation that goes back over thousands of years.
As important as studying the microscopic biochemistry and physiology is, it is only a small picture of the whole. Use this Chinese painting as an example:
In classic Chinese style, the person is small part (though not insignificant) amongst the landscape and world, if you will. The effects on the human body and its various forms of QI come from more than just what we perceive, not only in the physical realm of our body but from the seen and unseen influences of our environment and the heavenly parts. This is what is implied in the ancient philosophy and all wisdom. To cut to where the rubber meets the road, best health care means incorporation of the holistic approach.
