Health by Eastern philosophy

Energy balance
within the body.

In Japan, "Hi, how are you ?" translates into "the energies of Heaven and Earth are they in harmony ?"

« When human beings lose touch with nature, with the heavens and the earth, they are no longer capable to nurture their environment, nor to administer their world; they destroy their ecology while they destroy themselves. In this view, the healing of our society must be effected together with the healing of our personal and elemental link with the phenomenal world. »
Chögyam Trungpa

According to Eastern philosophy, health is primarily the result of an energy balance within the body, as well as a harmonious relationship between the body and the environment. Health is a state that encompasses both the physical, psychological, emotional and social well-being. It is therefore a holistic approach that considers human beings as an integral part of the universe, born from the blending of the energies of Heaven (Yang) and Earth (Yin).

According to the Nei Jing Su Wen (the first of the medical classics) every human being at birth has a balance of the virtues of Heaven and Earth. To learn how to live is to take care of this potential to live happily and healthily as long as possible. In this context, Shiatsu is an invitation to come into contact with this innate potential and to feed it by harmonizing the flow of vital energy through the body (the "Ki").
