DIEN CHAN ZONE®
WHAT IS DIEN CHAN?
Alice is trained in a form of reflexology called Dien Chan Zone, and similar to reflexology on the feet it allows us to work on creating balance within the body through an external passageway balancing the Qi (chi) the energy within and surrounding the body.
This technique is beautiful, powerful and allows us to work on all aspects of the body from the digestive system, productive system to the nervous system. The latter is something coming up for a lot of clients in this time. The beauty of facial reflexology is that it is easily practised on yourself, unlike foot reflexology so allows you to continue your treatment at home.
The recommended time of self treatment is 21 days post consultation and in depth treatment with a practitioner. With this online training we guide you through tapping into your para sympathetic nervous system followed by helping the areas you need at this time. Before the session its important to create a calm space that allows you to disengage from distractions and really spend some time before the session listening to your body and focusing on how you feel, disregarding any labels.
‘Dien Chan’ is a form of reflexology. Reflexology implies the principle that by stimulating one part of the body, another part of the body is rebalanced. More precisely, when the skin (a major sense organ) is stimulated according to established maps which reflect all the organs of the body, the nervous system (central, then peripheral) responds to reach the targeted organ or area.
There is a database in the brain within which all the organs of the body are coded to their correct function. This database is triggered by the stimulation of certain points and areas to signal a reminder that something has been modified to affect this function. And thus the correct functioning can, when possible, be restored.
Dien Chan or ‘Vietnamese Facial Reflexology’ was established by Professor Bui Quoch Chau in Vietnam.
This reflexology remains unique within its genre for a number of reasons:
- It is performed in the presence of all 5 sense organs simultaneously.
- It allows anyone to work on themselves independently, at any time and to combat any symptom in their body, every day, as often as they choose.
FROM EAST TO WEST
FROM WEST TO EAST
The technique was invented in Vietnam through the use of needles on the face but was always intended primarily to reach everyone – accessible health care and disease prevention. The Vietnamese were already working with the face to resolve health problems for hundreds and thousands of years. Indeed, facial massage remains and popular aspect of their culture today.
Building upon this local behaviour, Professor Chau studied a grid of infinite points and maps (a departure from ancient knowledge) to decipher how the internal organs are placed upon, and connected to, the face. His brilliant and modern intuition led to the depiction of maps for the face and also the body. There in, Dien Chan in its full application is a ‘multi-reflexology’.
As it was designed, this technique is perfect for the population it was born to. However, valid techniques and valid medicines cross the confines dictated by men, by time and by space; they remain useful beyond their origin.
It should be recognised that in the Orient such therapies are performed in a manner much more invasive than is normal in the West. If we want therefore to save them and to render them viable here, we must translate them to meet the needs of th
