This energetic anatomical correlation is a reflection of the Ba Gua, where each correlation gives balance to the other. For instance, if we treat the knee, it balances the elbow. There is an energetic correlation between all parts of the body like internal pathways connecting organs to channels. In the Balancing Methodology, one needle is often used to balance the energy of the opposing area, which produces immediate relief of the stagnation or pain. Dr. Chen has over 30-years experience with his methodology and has found it to be a most powerful and effective practice of acupuncture.
I Ching reflects the multi-dimensional aspect of life. Oriental medicine with its foundation in I Ching theory also contains many models of viewing life. For example, Wu Ji, Yin-Yang, Tai Ji, Five Elements, Six Channels, Ba Gua, Ten Heavenly Stems, Twelve Earthly Branches, and Jia Zi cycle of sixty are all different ways to view a given situation. In the same way, urine, blood, X-ray, MRI, and Catscan tests are different ways to examine the human condition.
