I published a book known as Pain’s Healing Secret in 2001, after selling around 2000 copies to mostly my students, I am exploring and expanding upon the original topics to provide extra information through my Youtube Channel and blog.
The interesting name for Pain’s Healing Secret comes from a technique of rapid healing that uses a little pain to alleviate acute or chronic pain.
The secret, of course, is this particular technique of rapid healing that I will discuss later on in this article and in the video. There are no known works that go into detail about this technique in a way that is helpful to knowledge seekers that wish to know more about listening to what their body is trying to tell them via pain. I was also unable to find anything like this on the internet, of course, until today as I am bringing this to all of you.
Why is this technique still a secret? This technique utilizes a combination of acupressure and the moxa stick which is also known as the Magic Needle. While the Magic Needle was initially revealed 300 years ago, and the original sole use of the moxa stick was revealed with it. (The original use of the moxa was to create little blisters on the skin to help alleviate pain.) My rapid healing technique (Moxibustion) combines these two techniques together in this unique way and has only recently become available for widespread use. If my rapid healing technique intrigues you, please click here to hear more about the basic concept of MoxaPressure, which is the technique I’ve created and refined for non-invasive pain relief. You can even click here if you are interested in purchasing my book Moxibustion for Pain Relief, otherwise known as Fire Your Pain with Moxibustion.
As for the history of the Magic Needle, An acupuncturist and a Confucian scholar, one of the most esteemed scholars being a palace scholar who had passed the most challenging test available set by the Emperor, which Han Yei Fong was and did, becoming the highest rank of Confucian scholar that you could aspire to be at the time.
This scholar wrote a book in which he explained that a Daoist monk came to him and said that it is time to reveal a Daoist secret healing technique. The monk Purple Aurora said “now is the time to publish a Daoist secret healing technique, which is called the Magic Needle” and he offered to show Han Yei Fong how to do it. He also gave the scholar permission to work on it with his apprentices if Han Yei Fong promised to publish the book and spread the word as far as possible.
Han Yei Fong published this book in 1717 and it immediately became a bestseller. This book had two parts, the first being a list of issues that could be treated (both chronic and acute.) The first part is a list of symptoms and diseases, which then explains how to heal these using this new rapid healing technique.
The second part was how the method was kept secret by the Daoists and how it was revealed by this mysterious monk. The author (Han Yei Fong) also wrote about a kind of acupuncture that was not dependent on the standard acupoints and meridians, yet rather it was based on the bi syndrome which describes how to get to the root of the pain, healing it. This way, the body no longer becomes stiff and painful around the affected area, which even allows the person to return to active life.
This method is called meridian dredging today but it’s particularly clear that this method was long ignored by acupuncturists doing standard acupuncture. Han Yei Fong revealed this other entire aspect of the art that is acupuncture, utilizing this bi syndrome.
Now I’ve also discovered this on my own, while guided by the empirical concepts of the points, meridians, and the three types of bi blockages.
The damp bi which contains a huge quantity of healing qi that became stuck, the blood bi that causes the muscles to stiffen up and hide the damp bi, burying it, causing it to be hard to find, then finally there is the wind bi, which is where you feel pain in another part of your body that was unrelated to the original injury. For example, when my humerus was broken I felt pain in my forearm. The pain distant from the break is called wind bi because pressing and rubbing the distant pain didn’t help alleviate it. The useful aspect of wind bi is it can help lead you to the damp and blood bi, allowing you to utilize the rapid healing techniques to alleviate the root of the pain.
Additional information on bi blockages and my studies are coming soon; However, in the meantime feel free to reach out via Facebook, Instagram, Youtube, or Twitter–Let’s go on a journey of self-discovery together during these interesting times!
