1) Yin / Yang and Major Meridians in the I Ching.
The difference between the two "actors" (Yin / Yang) is explained with the help of the I Ching, which gives a valuable understanding of what we have to deal with.
The architecture of the body with its lines of power (Meridians) is revealed and explained by various hexagrams.
2) Representation of the Typology by 5 elements.
The ability to connect the patient with one of the five elements (Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal, Water) is a definite advantage in identifying his mode of functioning and various types of reactions with respect to Heaven / Earth. This allows you to orient yourself to one or the other main meridian.
3) Presentation of the Typology of Major Meridians.
The meridians will be examined in terms of the behavior, physical characteristics and pathologies of each. Also, the possible path of the patient from childhood to adult will be shown in accordance with his typology.
Being able to recognize which type of patient we are dealing with is extremely important for effectively continuing the therapeutic relationship and determining the direction of treatment.
Instruments such as discerning observation, and in particular the observation of some elements that are usually left out, such as the hands, allow the allocation of patients to a certain number of different types and greatly facilitate the therapeutic approach.
This approach allows you to leave the symptom in its place as a simple signal of attention and no longer give it an importance that it really does not have.
This allows you to see the whole patient.
This makes it possible to take action at the root level of the damage to be corrected.
