Body Type Constitutional Medicine
Your body heals naturally and safely by optimizing the way your body innately works. Your body type is your unique way of establishing homeostasis, smooth functioning, and healing. For this reason, many diseases improve or go away without directly treating them. We empower your body to self-heal with acupuncture, dietary adjustment, and/or Asian herbs.
What Acupuncture Techniques Do You Use?
Our acupuncture techniques are called Bisoma (means two-body) and Tetrasoma (means four-body). These techniques use special points on the hands and feet for treatment of a variety of problems. Even low back and migraine are greatly improved with only these acupuncture points. Because the relief is superb, there is no requirement to do acupuncture on the site of the pain.
What Diet and Asian Herbal Techniques Do You Use?
We use Sasang (means four constitutions) herbal and dietary medicine. Sasang was created by a Korean physician 150 years ago as an improvement of Oriental medicine.
It is a four-body type medicine, where everyone is one of the four. The beauty of Sasang medicine is that its diagnostic criteria is same as Indian Ayurveda, Greco-Roman Unani, and American Myers-Briggs 16 personality types. Sasang medicine integrates ancient view of human body. Furthermore, Sasang shows which food and herbal ingredients fit the body type. A constitution manifests in personality, physiology, and physical shape.
Below is an example of physical manifestation of each body type of their torso. The green is a diamond shape, yellow is double-triangle, blue is down-triangle, and red is up-triangle.
Rather than focusing on the symptoms, signs, or the diseases, the focus is on your body’s ability to re-establish homeostasis. The result is a reduction of your disease and an increase in self-awareness.
