Keep yourself, your friends, and family well with simple Chinese Medicine techniques.
Chinese Medicine is a system of health therapies that was given a theoretical basis by Taoist science about 2000 years ago. As much as being a system of medical practice it is a philosophy of maintaining one's own vitality. Tai chi, qigong, and diet are as much a part of Chinese medicine as acupuncture and Chinese herbs. So while some of therapies should be left to professionals others are suitable for everyday people to use.
Learn the techniques of cupping and scraping to relieve aches, pains, and muscle tightness, and to help recovery from colds and flu's. And just a little bit of the theory to give these techniques some background.
ABOUT GILES (THE MOXA PUNK)
I'm Giles and I practice Chinese Medicine in Fitzroy. After years bumming around Uni learning cool stuff, and wearing myself out with contact sports, physical training, and years working in the mirror ball glitter of bars and clubs I swung around to learning how to heal people instead of how to hurt them. And since I hurt myself the most this was kinda useful.
