Ying Yoga and Traditional Chinese Acupuncture draw upon the same Classical Chinese Philosophy of Ying and Yang. When Ying and Yang are in perfect balance, one achieves perfect wellness. In Acupuncture, the body is in a state of perfect wellness, when the energy is flowing in a free and balanced way through the Meridians or 'rivers of energy.' The body is in a state of perfect homeostasis.
Ying and Yang are mutually supportive. They are a part of our everyday lives. Ying is cold, heavy, still, the energy is storing. Yang is hot, movement, fire, the energy is expending. A tall, leaner body is normally Ying. A shorter, heavier set body is normally Yang. The trick to perfect wellness is to balance both Ying and Yang. For example, high blood pressure in Chinese Medicine is considered a Yang condition. Fire and heat are rising in the body. There is movement from the Liver. Acupuncture seeks to reduce the heat and balance Yang and Ying by gently inserting fine sterile needles into the appropriate Meridians to re-establish a harmonized flow of energy. Ying and Yang are balanced and perfect wellness is achieved.
Acupuncture, Ying or Yang (active, muscular) Yoga, exercise, Homeopathy, Reiki, food and lifestyle can all help to balance Ying and Yang and help to achieve one's perfect wellness. Traditional Chinese Acupuncture combined with Yoga can lead to a life long pursuit of perfect wellness.
Traditional Chinese Acupuncture combined with healthy lifestyle choices such as Yin Yoga and proper nutrition can help put one on a clear path to achieving perfect wellness. Stress, anxiety, high blood pressure, and fatigue are all reduced. Ying and Yang are balanced.
