Dear Wellness Seeker,
In Ancient Chinese philosophy, Yin and Yang is a concept of dualism; all things have two facets: a Yin aspect and a Yang aspect; nothing is purely good or purely bad. The two qualities oppose each other while at the same time complement each other. Yin and Yang must necessarily contain the possibility of opposition and change; the separation and the interaction and merging. Yin and Yang create each other, control each other, and transform into each other; what creates the physical world.
To the ancient Chinese the life-force energy “Qi” is the underlying energy that gives life to all physical things. The physical world is one of qi vibration, alternating between yin and yang energies, producing all physical things. Yin/Yang: Two halves that mutually form the wholeness of Qi. The mixing of the two energies makes life possible. When life-force energy is appropriately balanced between Yin and Yang, it flows smoothly maintaining and promoting a good state of physical and emotional health. Unfortunately, today’s life’s stress tends to affect negatively the flow of Qi, and therefore damages our state of health and wellbeing.
In Western Medicine terms, the Yin/Yang balance can be comprehended as the balance of the autonomic nervous system (A.N.S). The A.N.S is a part of the entire nervous system, acting mainly unconsciously and automatically, and influencing many organ functions such as heart rate, digestion, respiratory rate and sexual arousal. It is composed of the sympathetic (Yang) and parasympathetic (Yin) nervous system, which are always operational. These two parts of our nervous system need to be in balance to achieve A.N.S. equilibrium. Sometimes the Yin part is more active, others the Yang, and in this way, our body stays in a balanced and homeostatic healthy quality state.
Our sympathetic N.S. (the Yang part) is activated by danger or stress and puts the organism in a “flight or fight” response. The parasympathetic N.S. (the Yin part) regulates our “rest and digest” or “feed and breed” functions. Overstimulation of the Yang energy during long stressful periods puts the body in a hyper-sympathetic state with somatic, emotional, and behavioural consequences. We all know that stress is bad for us – but what it actually means is that being sympathetically dominant for too long we are not spending enough time in the parasympathetic state, and we are missing out on the time we need to heal, regenerate and nourish our bodies. When this happens, the parasympathetic N.S. is unfortunately overrun. If this continues for a long time, symptoms of “Yin deficiency” begin to appear like difficulties in sleep, muscle tightness, feelings of frustration, constant anxiety. In conclusion, the more balanced our A.N.S. is, the stronger and healthier we will be.
The Chenot Method R combines these principles of Chinese medicine with the latest scientific advances in western medicine and state of the art diagnostic technology. We obtain information through resonance technology screening about the energetic state of the internal organs and body functions concerning defined parameters of health. Following this, energetic treatments are performed using laser acupuncture combined with other evidence-based deep relaxation treatments to bring the body and mind back to energetic balance and regain vitality.
