Mind-Body Holistic Healing Described In Huang Di Nei Jing
If you have a health problem, is it important to consider the body, mind, spirit and emotions? This holistic healing nature has been clearly established over 2,000 years ago in the oldest medical text called Huang Di Nei Jing.

Instead, they collect in the body as "blocked qi”. Accumulation of ‘blocked qi’ will affect the qi flow in the body. If not rectified, it will eventually prevent the body and its organs from functioning efficiently. Symptoms will eventually arise. These symptoms can be
