The ancient Chinese, like a lot of ancient civilizations, spent most of their time working in the fields or hunting for food. At the end of the day, their hard labors have inflicted their bodies with various pains and aches. Technology then wasn’t like what we know today and people were mostly poor. So they had to find the least expensive way to treat themselves of their illnesses. Out of necessity, they came up with cupping therapy, a remedy that uses a flame and a few cups to cure ailments and health conditions. Soon, a huge number of people were using this ancient, cheap but extremely effective modality.

Cupping therapy traditionally involves the use of cups. Practitioners use three kinds of cups – plastic cups, cylindrical narrow bamboo cups, and round glass cups. The cups are then applied to the body of a patient through the use of suction force. Plastic cups are connected to a vacuum device that sucks out air within the cup; bamboo cups are heated in warm water, resulting in the expansion of air within the cup, and then contract and cool upon contact with the body; in glass cups, fire is used air to remove some of the air within the cups.

The simple principle behind cupping is that the force of the suction can suck out illness-causing elements inside the body. Cupping however, is actually more than this. Chi or life energy, in Chinese medicine, causes us to function healthily; blood, is an essential element responsible for transporting nutrients throughout the body. Blood and chi are interrelated – chi makes the blood move and blood transports chi. Unlike acupuncture, which directly influences the chi but indirectly impacts the blood, cupping can directly influence both blood and chi although its effect on chi is less than acupuncture. The sucking energy generated by cupping draws blood and chi easily to the region where the cup is placed. This increase of blood and chi can lead to quicker healing since the region receiving treatment is more adequately supplied with vital nutrients that can result in optimal treatment. This enhanced healing effect is more obvious for recent and new ailments, whereas a longer period of healing would be required for older conditions.

Cupping is an extremely comfortable therapy that has provided much relief to a lot of people, whether they’re suffering from chronic joint pains or a sudden bout of flu. These verified outcomes have garnered it wide popularity in people as a less invasive and more comfortable Chinese medicine technique compared to acupuncture. Seek out a practitioner of Chinese medicine in Walla Walla near your area and ask for his or her advice on whether cupping is a suitable treatment for your condition.

In Chinese medicine, cupping is just one mode of therapy. Acupuncture treatment and Chinese herbal medicine are two of the most popular forms of Chinese medicine that are able to treat a wider range of ailments and conditions.

26. December 2019 · Comments Off on Applying Modern Feng Shui To Modern House Building Problems · Categories: Acupuncture · Tags:

A person may consider modern Feng Shui for problems that did not exist when the system first came into being.

The issue of electrical cables is one aspect involving modern Feng Shui energy discussion. When constructing your residence, it is wise to keep the electrical cables away from your head in your bedroom or where you most often sleep. When you build your home, you need to tell your contractor to raise the cables at least 2 meters or 6 feet nearly off the floor of your home.

This prevents dangerous EMF (electromagnetic field) radiation from directly affecting your head. Digital clocks generate powerful EMF energy and so, you need to keep these gadgets on the other side of the room.

When plugged in orange juicers, hair dryers, electric shavers, and electric clocks are the worst household appliances to be on your bed side. The level of damage they do to your health will depend on the length of time you’ve been exposed to these appliances. But what about the hairdressers and carpenters and the other millions of assembly or factory workers, or even the office workers who are exposed to strong EMF energy every day? No wonder cancer cases have risen to epidemic proportions.

In your home, a huge problem area is usually the office area. Under your desk, you may have several transformers powering a number of office equipments. There is a measure of safety for EMF in Sweden with 2 considered a safe rating. In the office area of some people’s home, an EMF field greater than 900 is oftentimes measured. This is a very dangerous EMF level to be exposed to especially if you’re in that area every day.

In the 1990’s, an Australian medical journal reported that it wasn’t clear how large EMF’s were but it was the same way to the knowledge about cigarettes in the 1950’s. While we know the risk for harm is significant for EMFs, only long term studies will reveal just how harmful it is.
Do not build a home near high voltage power lines, sub stations and electrical transformers. Near the vicinity of these places, the EMF energy is very strong and it could affect the value of your home as more and more people are realizing the problems associated with EMF including high incidence of cancer especially among children.

We also recommend using Feng Shui for fun. Appropriate placement of rock features, water, mirrors, and ornaments can increase the beauty of your home and bring prosperity and good luck to all who live with you.

Negative chi energy is toxic to your health. This toxicity can be precisely measured. So where are the toxic sections in your home?

First, we need to look at the wet areas. Your laundry and bathroom are susceptible to small undiscovered water leaks and molds, which can become a breeding ground for a variety of harmful microorganisms that can make your house and you ill. This certainly is bad or negative Feng Shui. To see if your wall spaces and walls have leaks, you can have these areas moisture tested. If leaks are found, you can make an insurance claim and have the issue fixed.

Health issues such as chronic fatigue, asthma and allergies can be traced back to such mold and water problems. When these issues are dealt with, spectacular results often occur.

Rooms that that are not well-ventilated are often plagued with toxic agents. These agents include deodorants, detergents, cleaners, and shampoos conditioners. Spraying aerosols in enclosed areas can be bad for your health as well as the concentrated chlorine from your shower that you might inhale from the hot water vapor in your shower.

The last is easy to repair. Simply add a shower filter which eliminates the chlorine. A shower lasting 10 ten minutes is like drinking four gallons of chlorinated water due to the chlorine concentration in the vapor.

Next on the toxic list is your kitchen. You may not be aware but if a child drinks a laundry detergent, washing up liquid or dishwasher liquid, he will die! We inhale toxins when we open the dishwasher and even have these chemicals on our clothes. Replace those toxic products with products that use non toxic chemicals for your laundry, bathroom and kitchen needs that cost no less and work just as well.

The laundry, bathroom and kitchen areas are usually a magnet for negative energy. You can purchase safe non-toxic products in your nearest health food supermarket or on the internet. This is not Feng Shui in the strictest sense, it’s just common sense.

In this day and age, one cannot reasonably talk about energy inside the home without addressing certain health issues. A syndrome called “Sick building” is a well recorded field of study. One government building my friend used to work in was eventually closed after reports of very high cases absenteeism due to sickness and frequent complaints from the staff.

In Australia, after being identified as a cancer cluster, one of the broadcasting studios of the ABC government television was closed down. A lot of women working in that studio developed breast cancer, which was unusually higher than the averages of any workplace.
