Master Jeffrey Yuen is teaching about the use of essential oils in the treatment of Bi-obstruction syndromes.
Essential Oils have long been used in Chinese Medicine
For thousand of years, the therapeutic use of essential oils of aromatic plants has been utilised for the maintenance and restoration of health. Essential oils, believed to possess the most concentrated aspect of a plant, were anointed for their scent and applied to create healing on the multi-layered body-mind-spirit continuum. Today, aromatherapy is rapidly becoming one of the most popular modalities of healing available.
“Bi-Obstruction Syndrome and Essential Oils
Pain management is one of the most common issues confronting all systems of medicine. Historically, tong-pain was commonly encountered within the Chinese military and its subsequent management has evolved into one of the leading specialties of Chinese medicine – wai ke, or external medicine. Many of its guiding principles have been retained in the study of die dat, sports medicine or “bonesetting”, which provides practitioners with manual techniques on how to manipulate the sinews and bones. Crucial to this understanding is the angle of manipulation, local and distal focus on the site of the bi-obstruction, bilateral and/or contralateral inclusion, and activation or desensitization of certain points or areas, often facilitated by the application of herbal liniments or oils. Based on such strategies, this one-day workshop will explore the principles and techniques associated with this specialty and its relevance in pain management and bi-obstruction through the application of essential oils.”

As written in different chapters of the SuWen a Bi-obstruction syndrome can be the result of a disruption of Wei Qi and Ying Qi. When they don’t flow smoothly it leads to pain.
Pain is also part of psycho-somatic diseases. Bi-obstruction syndrome can lead to an obstruction of the Shen and therefore the pain gets more, because of the inability to deal with what we feel. A legitimate question can be: what are you resistent to in your life?
The SuWen also speaks about the nature of Bi-obstruction syndrome – Wind-Cold-Damp. Furthermore it describes the different pain sensations, related to the external pathogen factors. In the text a lot of emphasis is put on Cold entering the channels to obstruct the flow of Qi and Blood that results into pain.
In this one day lecture we will look into the different aspects of Bi-obstruction syndromes and how we can treat these with the use of essential oils.
