  1. Secret of healing –removing blockage from capillaries and lymph circulation

TCM philosophy is work at acupuncture points and meridians from skin level, to improving blood and chi flow.

I find an easy language to help patients to understand TCM and to be positively cooperating with treatments:

From western medicine point of view: All chronic diseases are internal vital organs dysfunction relating to microcirculatory and lymphatic circulation insufficiency.

The human body circulatory system that includes:

The cardiovascular system (blood circulation) and the lymphatic system (lymphatic circulation). The lymphatic circulation is an auxiliary part of the blood circulation.

 The lymphatic system is a one-way traffic that assists body fluids return into the circulatory system. It absorbs the tissue fluid to form lymph fluid. Finally assembles into left and right lymphatic vessel openings in the vein.

For all health issues, the most common symptoms: body inflammation and the water retention.  The language of TCM is cold and damp. It can oppress organs and forms a vicious circle.

Most important key for healing is to improving circulation, reduce water retention and restore good health.

The fire dragon therapy heats the body surface to promote the microcirculation. influence  the whole body blood flow and lymphatic circulation , when the water retention removed , body can effectively eliminating cold, reducing inflammation, swelling, burning fat, relieve pain and fatigue,

During process allow the nutrition and oxygen to deliver to the body cells and can repair the vital organs, and has immediate benefit.

  1. Fire Dragon therapy history and Morden time recognition

Fire Dragon therapy was originated in Tibet.

In the 8th century AD, the famous Tibetan medicine practitioners co-edited the “Dept of 4 Medical Codes,” which wrote the chapter “The Essentials of Fire Moxibustion” and record fire therapy in detail.

Fire therapy was popular in the palace of the Buddhist Institute and serves the nobles and upper lamas. It has become an important part of Tibetan medicine.

At Tang Dynasty, (AD 618-907 ) about 1,100 years ago.The emperor Tang wish to make peace with Tibet, send Princess Wen Cheng to married a Tibetan leader “Songzan”

“Tibetan Imperial Fire Therapy” method was introduced Central china and once flourished at the Tang Dynasty

Sometimes late a war starts between Tibet and china. China government has banned many Tibetan cultures in Tang were and include “Tibetan Imperial Fire Therapy” than can only find a few words from the vast literature. Due to historical reasons, they were not popularized again.

About 50 years ago, China into a new revolution and economy has fast growth; many of traditional culture have been recognized. Last 20 years Tibetan culture has entered the hall of modern civilization, and “Tibetan Imperial Fire Therapy” has entered the central china and moved toward the world.

But till now Fire Dragon therapy was most practiced in health care service use as relaxation technique. In Chinerchi therapy we are use as treat serious health issues and have very effective results. Also was well received by patients and recognised by the public.
