- Taoism of moderation, living in harmony with nature and striving for balance.
- Balance and harmony of the yin and yang, affecting the body, mind and emotions.
- Microcosm of the body in relation to daily and seasonal changes of nature expressed in the Five Elements. (For more information, visit my website: Chinese Natural Healing.)
- The flow of qi (internal energy) must be constant and continuous; any excess or blockage will result in disharmony, which affects different organs, which in turn affects different emotions, resulting in depression. The objective of acupuncture is to stimulate your acupuncture points to ensure the smooth flow of qi throughout your entire body, thereby initiating depression cure.
An acupoint can also be stimulated with acupressure, which uses a firm pressure of the hands to massage the acupoints instead of using hair-thin needles in acupuncture.
