精華油保持陰陽平衡 Essential Oils restore Yin Yang balance


精華油保持陰陽平衡

Kat是香薰治療顧問及臨床催眠師。她亦有修讀中醫課程。

Kat:陰陽平衡概念在中醫佔有很重要地位,解釋了組織學結構、身理功能、以及人體的病理變化,是診症時的其中一個指引。

陰代表冷、濕、暗淡、被動、緩慢、沉重、及後退或內向;而陽代表熱、乾燥、明亮、活躍、迅速、輕巧、及向上或向外移動。對自然界及人體,兩者平衡非常重要,任何一方都不可以缺少另一方。這兩個原理的活躍互動反映於季節的替換、人體周期及其他自然現象上。

中醫的一個目標是令個人保持陰陽諧和。若陰陽不能保持相對的平衡及互動性,他們會跟對方分離,並且終結了依附著它們的生命。陰陽原理是,疾病因陰陽的不平衡而來,引致陰陽的過度活躍或沒有精力。

病理學因素分為陽性及陰性的病理因素。陽性病理因素可能令陽性體質過度活躍,引致陰性受損;出現熱氣症狀結果。若疾病因陰性病理因素,它可能沒有精力及損害熱性;受寒症狀會出現。疾病的病理學改變差異很大,但是可以大致以陰陽不平衡來解釋:過多陰性會造成受寒症狀,陽性過多則有熱氣症狀,陽性不足會有受寒症狀,陰性不足會有熱氣症狀。

Essential Oils restore Yin Yang balance

Kat is the aromatherapy consultant and Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist.  She had taught Traditional Chinese Medicine in HK.

Kat: The theory of yin and yang is used extensively in traditional Chinese medicine to explain the histological structure, physiological function, and pathological changes of the human body, and to serve as guide for diagnosis of treatment.

Yin represents everything that is cold, moist, dim, passive, slow, heavy, and moving downward or inward; while yang represents heat, dryness, brightness, activity, rapidity, lightness, and upward or outward motion. Both forces are equally necessary in nature and in human well-being, and neither force can exist without the other. The dynamic interaction of these two principles is reflected in the cycles of the seasons, the human life cycle, and other natural phenomena.

One objective of traditional Chinese medicine is to keep yin and yang in harmonious balance within a person.  If yin and yang cannot maintain relative balance and interaction, they will separate from each other ending the life that depends upon them.  The Yin-Yang theory holds that disease is a result of an imbalance between yin and yang which leads to the hyperactivity or hypoactivity of yin and yang.

Pathogenic factors are divided into yang-natured pathogenic factors and yin-natured pathogenic factors. Yang pathogenic factors may bring about hyperactivity of bodily yang which leads to injury of yin; a heat syndrome results. If the disease is caused by yin pathogenic factors, it may give rise to hypoactivity of yin followed by the injury of yang; a cold syndrome will result. Pathological changes of disease are varied, but can be generally explained in terms of yin-yang imbalance: yin excess causes cold syndromes, yang preponderance leads to heat syndromes, yang deficiency causes cold syndromes, and yin deficiency leads to heat syndromes.

DK: How does aromatherapy contribute the effectiveness in keeping yin and yang in harmonious balance within a person?

Kat: Every essential oil has its own yin/yang properties.   We based on diagnostic categories of organ disharmony; choose specific essential oils for the various disharmonies.

During the ear candling treatment, don’t forget to choose the right essential oils for a facial massage.

Yang essential oils: Cedarwood, Bergamot, Grapefruit, Cypress, Tea Tree, Geranium, Patchouli

Yin essential oils: Roman Chamomile, Ylang Ylang, Neroli, Palmarosa, Juniper, Geranium, Lavender, Rose
