I’ve always been fascinated by the Asian perspective on medicine.
Having been born and lived in Hong Kong for nearly four decades, I developed an early fascination with Traditional Chinese Medicine outlets. Those places, adorned with herbal powders, pastes, lotions, and potions, never failed to captivate my curiosity.
Even in my teenage years, I found myself lingering at their entrances, captivated by the contents of the countless wooden containers and baskets.
It was inevitable that a kind elderly gentleman would see me and offer a cup of herbal tea – usually a robust concoction that managed to be strangely palatable.
The mystery of what exactly I was drinking never bothered me; I embraced it as a well-intentioned contribution to my well-being.
In the mid-1970s, I enrolled in evening classes to study Acupressure at the Hong Kong City Hall. Coincidentally, Phylipa had also studied under the same teacher, albeit a year or so ahead of me.
On occasions we’d all go out to a park, sit on a bench and listen as the teacher spoke to us about the distinguishing traits of passers by – walking with heels hitting the ground first signified confidence, dark rings around the eyes suggested allergies.
Armed with enthusiasm and my copious notes, I initiated my acupressure journey by practicing on my mother. The inevitable first patient!
I pressed key acupressure points on her arm until she let out a loud “Ow!” According to my notes, she had just experienced a mild stroke. Her response to my amateur diagnosis was a smiling acknowledgment tinged with a hint of doubt.
A few months later, during her annual medical check-up, an ECG test confirmed that a “mild coronary” had indeed occurred around the time of my impromptu diagnosis. Kudos to me!
Next in line was my father. During a game of golf, I noticed he took a whopping 9 strokes to reach the green on a Par 3. Something was evidently amiss.
When I inquired, he initially dismissed it with the usual “Oh, nothing.” However, it turned out that every morning, the top of the middle finger on his right hand only experienced “pins and needles,” which gradually spread up his fingers, hand, and arm up to his elbow.
Consulting my notes again, I went to work, locating his “Ow” point. Unsurprisingly, we decided that he was grappling with a blood circulation issue.
After three days of daily, 3-4 minute massages between his wrist and elbow, the pins and needles vanished completely.
In a quest to deepen my understanding of the human body in 2012, I studied Jin Shin Jyutsu – a therapeutic practice with ancient roots in Japan. Similar to Acupressure, Jin Shin Jyutsu employs delicate finger pressure on specific body points to restore the flow of energy that may have become obstructed due to illness, pain or other reasons.
Discovering the solutions to all our problems is like finding a treasure chest within ourselves – it’s just a matter of giving a little ‘look and listen.’
In 2020, I stumbled upon something that truly surprised me. I’ll admit that I was on the verge of terminating the introductory video, but my interest perked up as I was listening to something that would help reverse illness, dissolve pain, address the root cause of health problems
….and all in just 3 minutes a day.
Someone had merged the wisdom of Traditional Chinese Medicine with the invisible magic of sound frequencies. In my opinion – absolute genius!
Nikola Tesla himself once said ‘If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.”
And this revelation couldn’t have come at a better time, considering many of us feel like deer caught in the headlights, with doctors and hospitals metaphorically running us over with their supposedly ‘irrefutable’ science.
(If you didn’t already know, science is NEVER irrefutable; it’s like that friend who insists they know the best route but keeps recalculating the GPS.)
In a study carried out any the Mayo Clinic it was found that 88% of initial diagnoses by doctors in the USA were incorrect, second opinions rarely agreeing with the first diagnosis. Now, if that doesn’t make you look for an alternative option, I don’t know what will.
Dealing with our aches, pains, and preemptively thwarting health issues isn’t as complicated as it seems.
Take a moment to watch the same introductory video that had me hooked – what Emily Parker has to say about Dr. Lin Xiaoxi’s groundbreaking work.
This holds the potential to revolutionise your well-being and might just liberate you from the constant pressure to adopt a pill-popping routine.
The best part? It’s completely non-invasive.
Emily’s sincerity shines through, covering a range of conditions, from chronic pain to low immunity (extra valuable in today’s world), fatigue, high blood pressure (way better than swallowing pills like they’re candy), depression (the long term side effects of depression medicine is….depression), anxiety (more common these days than you’d think), insomnia, allergies…..and the list goes on.
