INTEGRATING TCM ZANG-FU THERAPY WITH JAPANESE MERIDIAN BALANCING
Traditional Chinese Medicine and Zang-Fu Energetics
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) refers to the history and expression of energetic medicine as practiced in China from its earliest dates up unto the present time. Although it has breathed life into many diverse expressions, including esoteric acupuncture schools, the power of the healing mind and hand, and so on, it has steadily coalesced and unified into its present manifestation. This manifestation is in essence an herbal art, based on the theoretical framework of zang-fu syndromes. Diseases are seen as dysfunction of basic zang-fu energetic processes, which are clearly mapped out and described. Diagnosis is a combination of information from the pulse, tongue and symptom presentation. It is important to note here that pulses are concerned with energetic organs, not channels. Multiple presenting syndromes are prioritized, and herbal prescriptions, with modifications, are administered to normalize organ function. This is done for both acute and chronic disorders, and acupuncture prescriptions are asked to follow this system of organization. (Older systems of channel diagnosis and pathology have died out in mainland China, with the exception of musculoskeletal complaints, but continue in Japan, Korea, and Vietnam, and to a lesser extent in Taiwan and Hong Kong.)
