The art of self-healing

Self-healing, like any other art, requires knowledge and effort. It is not something that happens by chance or to a few “lucky” ones. To practice an art well we need discipline, concentration (focus), patience and commitment. Of these, discipline is the most important and the most difficult to practice.

Original Qi: Natures mysterious healing power

Many centuries ago Plato said that: “The part can never be well unless the whole is well…This is the great error of our day in the treatment of the human body, that the physicians separate the soul from the body.” Several centuries later William Blake gave us this insight: “Man has no body distinct from his soul; for that called body is a portion of soul discerned by the five senses, the chief inlets of soul in this age.”

The real purpose of meditation

Emptying your mind of thought is not the purpose of meditation. We have to think, just not in a random and uncontrolled manner. We have to think when reflecting on ourselves because self-reflection leads to self-discovery and self-discovery leads to self-realisation. This is the real purpose of the meditation in the Jung Shim qi energy classes.

What is Energy Healing?

Energy Healing is an ancient technique that opens the energy channels in our body to regain balance and support our body’s healing abilities. In simple terms, it releases blockages to improve the energy flow in our system to better our health. Energy healing has been around for thousands of years. It comes in many forms, some of which may be more familiar than others; Reiki, Reflexology, Kinesiology and Acupuncture. At Jung Shim, Chunsoo Treatments are based on eastern principles which understand that good health is achieved with a steady flow and healthy store of Qi (or chi) energy in our system, which maintains the balance of mind, body and spirit.

Detoxing your mind and body. It’s not just for January

In January, we often feel sluggish - both in body and mind - due to short days and cold, dark winter nights. It can feel like we have very limited physical and emotional resources available to us, and it’s no surprise when a good proportion of the animal kingdom hibernate at this time. Sadly hibernation is not an option for the majority of us, although taking some tips from nature can definitely support us during this time.

As is ‘detoxing’ which goes one step further - cleansing and nourishing the body from the inside which allows us to re-energise and ward of the many diseases lurking at this time of year.

What is forgiveness? Forgiveness is generally defined as a conscious decision to stop feeling resentful or revengeful towards a person(s) who has wounded you in any way. To forgive means to forgo your retribution or to let go of your hurt and hatred. There is a simple reason for this. Hatred is a very negative emotion that drains our energy. When you have negative thoughts about others, your body creates negative chemistry that will ultimately damage your body.
