Event Details

Abstract:

The belief that body energy must continuously flow to prevent stress and disease is a central tenet of Traditional Chinese Medicine. The meridian system (inner energy points and pathways) encourages the flow of “qi” (body energy) and blood throughout the body. Traditional Chinese philosophies understand qi () as an energy that not only animates our bodies, but the world around us. However you choose to interpret this way of thinking, the benefits of its application are clear to many.

By clearing energy pathways called “jing luo” (经络) and removing blockages that cause pain and disease, qi can be balanced. Chinese Tuina (推拿) massage practitioners identify pathways with limited flow and use hand pressure to restore harmony and energy circulation.

This seminar aims to introduce the therapeutic benefits of Tuina massage and explain how it helps balance our health holistically. A number of simple acupoints will also be introduced and demonstrated so as to teach you how to relieve neck and shoulder pain using Chinese Tuina massage.

Speaker:

Mr Chao Yan received his bachelor’s degree from Heilongjiang University of Chinese Medicine and became a qualified doctor in China in 2014. From 2014-2016, he worked as a Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) doctor and taught regular courses at London South Bank University Clinic, where Chinese Medicine is being taught as a degree programme, accredited by the British Acupuncture Accreditation Board.

Mr Chao Yan is a qualified licensed TCM practitioner with significant experience in treating back pain, insomnia and stroke sequel. He also engages in research on TCM herbs and the anti-tumor effects of Phenolic Alkaloids of Menispermum Dauricum (PAMD) on gastric cancer.
