“Those who are wise and practice Yang Sheng [Nourishing Life] follow the four seasons and act appropriately in winter and summer. They harmonize happiness and anger and have peace in their dwelling places. They regulate yin and yang and adjust firm and soft. In this way illnesses are avoided and they can live long and healthy lives.”
~ From the Neijing Ling Shu Chapter 8 “Origins of Spirit”

Health and Healing/The “5 Elements” of Health
Health is something grown from within. We start where there is already health and we cultivate it. They say “use it or lose it.” But in fact, if you use it carefully, not only will you prevent loss, you will also gradually gain. You may only be able to move it a little now, but if you use it without exhausting it, in time you will be able to move it much more. Applying this principal of cultivation to all aspects of our lives is the foundation of Yang Sheng practice and of developing health through Chinese medicine. Five important areas in which this principal can be applied (the “5 Elements” of Health) are nutrition, movement, meditation, herbal medicine and acupuncture/bodywork.
