Watch as the arms of the pine tree move up and down at the same time while the tree twists and sways, remaining in balance. Imagine yourself as this pine tree, slowly twisting, swaying, moving your arms up and down. I call it tree gong!
We really reduce our understanding of all that is when the acknowledgment of energy and spirit are left out of the equation. Our existence becomes meaningless because we can’t explain things energetically or spiritually. Somehow because science needs a machine to measure things and that the human body and mind, which is the most sophisticated detecting system as we know, supposed can’t be relied upon. There is no point then of talking morality either because everything is just matter and has no spirit. The beauty of creation came to be by some obscure chemical reaction? The attractive energy between men and women does not exist either, but how can they explain when we can’t take our eyes off one another?
Here is another subject: the depiction of the earth circling the sun is about as stone age as it gets. The sun is constantly in motion. The path of the earth around the sun is actually a spiral. Our earth will never pass the same spot over again. In fact, the whole galaxy is moving. Imagine a big slinky, you know that spiral toy. That is the path of the earth and all the other planets as well. The moons path around the earth is a spiral too. check out this video
The ancient daoist term for the art of healing is called tui na. This means the pushing and pulling away of dysfunction which is accomplished by the stimulation of energetic points and meridians, the balancing of yin and yang, and the promotion of the flow of chi and blood.
According to the Yellow Emperor of China over 5,000 years ago, tui na is the oldest of all healing techniques. There is evidence that tui na was practiced over 13,000 years ago. The ancient daoists observed that when people are in pain, they instinctively grasp themselves where they hurt. This became the basis for tui na, in turn developing into many healing manipulations. I personally witness this same instinctive phenomenon. When people describe their pain or are asked what is bothering them, quite often they touch the area of pain unconsciously.
This practice is not to be confused with Swedish or western types of massage, which are interpretations originating from tui na. The purpose of tui na is to move energy-chi. Those I work on feel more energized and lighter because their chi is flowing properly throughout their bodies, their minds are calmer and clearer, and they are more connected to their spirits.
Over time, stone implements and needles were used to stimulate the energetic points and meridians. This would become a specialized technique called acupuncture. I am able to use my fingers instead, as in the original practice of tui na.
This practice is a holistic, whole family treatment. Tui na can treat infants, children, adults, men and women, pregnant women, the elderly.
What makes my practice unique is the way I combine the energetic healing of chi gong with a hands-on approach to chinese medicine theories. Using all my senses, including extra-sensory perception, I can detect the different energies of the body, quite often associated with emotions in diagnosing dysfunction. Through the use of my hands, I am more personally involved and connected to those I treat and thus able to effect deeper healing.

Everything in the universe is energy(chi). All energy is either yin or yang. All energy is guided by the divine will and intention of God.
By observing that our universe is more than just the physical world we see, that everything is vibrational energy on many levels, designed by a higher power than ours, realization of a universal connection is possible.
