The Three Treasures represent the creative and procreative polarity of Qi, the magnetism of Jing, and the spiritual container that is Shen. These 3 sacred and integral gifts form the basis for life, the promise of health, wellbeing, and endurance. Taoists believe that by using our breath, deep meditation, and disciplined exercise, we are able to support, balance, and preserve the 3 Treasures to achieve immortality. When Jing, Qi, and Shen are in harmony, we are able to live life at peak capacity with our body, mind, and spirit fully engaged. These powerful truths are represented in the Music of the Spheres, and in the words of the Chinese sage, Chuang Tzu who said, Heaven Earth and I are one and all things and I form an inseparable unity. These sacred Taoist concepts are integrated into the Acutonics® curriculum. If you would like to read more about the Acutonics® approach to working with the Three Treasures you might enjoy this article by Donna Carey, LAc and Ellen Franklin, PhD that appeared in Oriental Medicine Journal, Deepening our Connection to Nature, Earth & Self: Alleviate Stress with Acutonics® and the Three Treasures.
"When I went to get my facial I was feeling a little achy and tired, wondering how I would get through the rest of my workday . . . After my treatment I taught some (yoga) classes, went shopping and cleaned the kitchen! My face definitely feels more lifted after just three appointments . . . and the treatments leave me feeling energetic, happy, and younger! "
