A Ku Massage session starts with an Oriental Diagnosis based on TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) theory, identifying eventual imbalances and their corresponding affected emotions and causes; revealing the present condition of your internal organs and genetic patterns of behavior and/or ancestral tendencies that are affecting your health.
Oriental Diagnosis reads through the face forms, lines and shapes, colors, shines and appearance identifying our condition as well as the condition of our parents, grandparents and so forth. This method is particularly interesting to reveal ancestral behavior and emotional patterns and tendencies that can be restricting our optimal health. See Diagnosis
The treatment then continues with a massage session focused on the most affected organs and their corresponding meridians (body energy channels used by TCM treatments such as acupuncture). The used techniques are from Deep tissue, Sports Massage, Osteopathy, Physiotherapy, Tui-Na (Chinese Physiotherapy) and Manual Therapy (by adjusting and correcting the spinal structure as well as the bones, muscles, joints and tissues).
The session ends with Diet advices based on Macrobiotics (by eliminating certain foods and adding others that are more beneficial, the whole body and psychological condition become balanced). And Exercise advices from Physiotherapy or Chinese Medicine (such as medical Qigong exercises).
“Independence is not accomplished by emotion alone! It is possible only when your wisdom, emotion, and consciousness become one.”
“You must have a correct insight into life and the Nature of the Universe. With self-knowledge such as this, the correct action will always appear.”
Zen Master Seung Sahn
