Welcome to Ecology in Motion!
I'm Clive Witham, the director of the Institute and author of 4 Gua sha books published in 5 languages. I've been using Gua sha for over 20 years and I have spent a long time synthesizing everything I have learnt in that time into a ground-breaking form of treatment based on ancient Chinese texts which transforms how we use Gua sha on the face and body - it's called 'Ecology in Motion' or EIM.
The Ecology of Gua sha
Chinese medicine has a fundamentally ecological view of looking at the body and what we think of as discrete organ systems connected by blood vessels, they saw rivers and streams and trees and mountains. They compared how nature behaves with what they saw in the body and using the natural scientific principles of the world around us applied simplicity to complex mechanisms. Once you learn this, it will transform how you see Gua sha!
If you’ve always wanted to…
learn the Gua sha technical skills to make real changes on the face.
master using gentle Gua sha techniques on your face, head, neck, arms and legs safely and securely
learn how your body and face are interconnected and how to use this ancient knowledge
start treating people and get great results …
THEN THIS VIDEO COURSE IS FOR YOU!
NOTE 1: NOTE: If you are looking for a facial Gua sha course which is rubbing some cream on your face, and doing lifting motions while repeating banal explanations of toxins, chakras and massage mantras, then this is NOT the course for you! Really, it just isn't. There are too many dubious claims and all round hot air floating around the internet and you can just make any wild thing up, do a video, hype it up and take people's hard-earned money.
My approach to Gua sha is to always stand on solid ground. Firstly because I base everything I do on Traditional Chinese medicine and in particular I try to base as much as possible on the oldest known text of Chinese medicine. And secondly because I use the evidence-base of modern Gua sha research to refine and expand on how we can best use Gua sha esthetically.
In this way you get the security and confidence that everything that you do with Gua sha is based on an advanced understanding of natural science and good practice.
So, let's get back to it! This introduction is for people who REALLY WANT TO KNOW what they are doing and why in terms of Chinese medicine with facial Gua sha and to make lasting changes to the face.
