Correct the Structure, Correct the Channels

In East Asian medicine there is a basic principle: Zheng Tai, Zheng Jing. In English this translates into: Correct the Structure, Correct the Channels.

 

When imbalances in the physical structure of the body occur, known as misalignments, the relationship between hard and soft tissues is disrupted and there is a loss of the free flow of qi and blood, or in modern terminology we might say there is a disruption to neurological activity (qi) and the proper exchange of fluids (blood), which leads to pain and the loss of the healthy functioning of muscles and joints.

 

So when we bring the body back into proper structural alignment and thereby correct the structure, we also correct the channels, the pathways by which qi (neurological activity) and blood travel, thereby allowing for the free flow of qi and blood, and ensuring healthy neurological activity and the proper exchange of fluids in the body. The result: the elimination of pain and the restoration of the healthy functioning of muscles and joints.

One highly effective method of achieving this is Kyojung, a traditional Korean system of bodywork using very clear diagnostic methods that accurately assess structural imbalances combined with highly effective therapeutic techniques that correct those imbalances. These therapeutic techniques include partner-assisted stretches, propping techniques, and bodywork techniques.

Combined with other modalities like acupuncture, cupping, gua sha, and herbal medicine, Kyojung is a powerful tool we use to help you heal!
