Zihou Healing Arts
I'm a man with a few talents and wish to share them to the people who wish to learn. I'm a healer, martial artist and an artist. What I have discovered in my exploration into my talents is that everything is connected; nature, the human body and the mind. Studying to be a healer (remedial massage, traditional chinese medicine & acupuncture) I have learnt that there is a connection between our emotions and our health. Our body strive to heal and maintain balance in order for our body to be long enduring. Through martial arts (chen style taijiquan), I have learnt the principle of movement in nature and how our body alignment can balance itself from standing. Martial arts provided me to become a little bit more righteous, discipline, well mannered and tolerance. To be a good artist, one needs to be a good observer in life. To be a good observer, the heart must be still. When the heart is still and the observation skills becomes good, you can learn to see beyond objects and forms. All my studies so far may seem random, but in essence are all connected. Things which I have learnt from my studies: how to tranquil the mind. Sincere thought, sincere action. Stillness nurtures grounding; relaxation nurtures focus. Acceptance. Tolerance, discipline, perseverance, persistence, humbleness from listening. Contemplation. Accepting my inadequacies. Becoming simple... These are just somethings I"ve acquired over my experience.
Like what I've said I'm a healer. I can try my best to heal people physically, but I sometimes wonder, why stop there? Can I not help others to heal themselves? Wouldn't it be great to nurture other talented people to heal others? I may not be a great teacher or healer, but I'm always willing to learn from others better than me. In ancient China, it is believed that when a person is educated their morality and virtue is extravagant as well. Their character reflects their mind and their healthy mind is reflected through their health.
We are living in a stressful society where emphasis is placed on building wealth, but our spirituality deteriorates. Virtuous or noble people are virtually becoming extinct. We do not understand nature anymore. We even do not understand ourselves too. This does not mean I am virtuous or noble, but I'm aware these human qualities are lacking now in our society. With acupuncture and remedial massage; how much can I heal? By sharing knowledge and wisdom, another can heal themselves and help others.
Hence, this website I wish to express not only do I offer my services through my skills, but also knowledge to help nurture the mind and hopefully our spiritual qualities.
