To ensure a well-functioning immune system, the lymphatic system must be healthy. This book provides detailed information on the principles and practice of techniques from East Asian medicine which vitalize and move the lymphatic system to get the immune system working at its optimal level. These techniques include shiatsu, cupping therapy and gua sha.
Highlighting the significance of the omentum (a layer of peritoneum that surrounds abdominal organs), the book describes the dynamic physiological attributes of this mostly ignored component of human anatomy. Using the author's decades of experience working in East Asian and Integrative medicine, he expertly builds a bridge between Western theories of the immune system with Asian bodywork's emphasis on abdominal treatment. Innovative and insightful guidance for students and practitioners working in Asian Healing modalities and lymphatic techniques.
The pursuit and maintenance of health and the prevention of disease has been my lifelong mission, both personally and professionally. I am a firm believer in the precept expressed since ancient times in East Asian medicine that the human body is endowed with the ability to resist the invasion of pathogenic factors (the anti-pathogenic factors). The greatest importance in theory and practice of the East Asian traditional medical systems is focused on these anti-pathogenic factors. A crucial aspect of this is the strengthening of the immune system. In distinction, modern Western medicine is much more focused on pathogenic factors, those factors that can cause disease such as bacteria and viruses. Western medicine seeks to identify and destroy pathogenic factors, often regardless of the deleterious secondary effects of this approach.
Clearly, human beings are always facing multiple pathogenic factors with the capacity to create illness. Thankfully, most of the time most people are able to ward off and destroy the pathogens and remain healthy. This ability to remain healthy is the result of our anti-pathogenic factors, primarily our immune systems and, in terms of East Asian medicine, the balance of our innate bio-energies, Qi or Ch’i. We remain healthy not because medicine can overcome disease, but because our body’s innate wisdom has the capacity to ward off pathogens and restore balance, culminating in good health.
