Description of Tongue body

  • This is a square wide tongue. The tongue is big, hard and thin. This indicates an excessive matter stagnation inside the cells.
  • Skewed tongue deviated to the right from the Facial Midline (FM). It is an indication for potential problem for heart and brain.
  • The tip of the tongue (a) is raised and red. According to the Body Space Medicine, the tip of the tongue corresponds to the heart area. The bump here indicates a chronic accumulation of matter inside of the heart cells, resulting in matter stagnation.
  • A dent is seen at the Shan Zhong area (b), it indicates insufficient energy.
  • The tongue is raised at the Middle Jiao and Lower Jiao (c), indicating excessive matter stagnated inside the cells.
  • There are some teeth marks along the right edge of the tongue (d), it indicates there is disproportionately more fluid than other matter within the cells.
  • The tongue is wet, which means too much fluid inside the cells.
  • The color of the tongue is red, indicating the overall blood circulation of the body is poor with stagnation.

Descriptions of Tongue coating

  • No coating at the tip of the tongue (a) indicates deficient energy in the space surrounding the heart.
  • Middle Jiao has thin and white coating, meaning an adequate amount of energy is flowing freely.
  • Greasy and white coating presents in the Lower Jiao, it indicates excessive energy stagnate in this area.

BSM Analysis and Discussion

  • According to the tongue reading,we see there is matter stagnation inside of cells, causing abnormal transformation from matter to energy and vice versa, resulting in dysfunction of metabolism. The overall situation of San Jiao reveals presence of too much heat in the Upper Jiao, dense moisture in the Middle Jiao and very cold and dampness in the Lower Jiao. This indicates energy distribution is imbalance and it’s movement is not smooth.
  • One of the BSM principles in clinical practice is to focus on the elevated and not the dented areas of tongue, and to focus on the front and not the back of the tongue. According to the BSM, we need to pay a special attention to the raised tip of the tongue during tongue reading and clinical treatment. Why the tip of the tongue is so important? There are two reasons. First, BSM looks at the tongue as a river: the root of the tongue is the cradle of river, the tip of the tongue is the entrance of river, and beneath the tongue it is like ocean. The raised tip of tongue indicates the entrance to the ocean being blocked and river can not flow to the ocean. If this situation continues for long time, the river will become polluted. Therefore we must clean up the entrance by dissipating matter stagnation in heart cells via promoting the transformation between matter and energy. When the river can flow to the ocean, energy can flow freely in San Jiao and then Gong Zhuan can rotate smoothly. Second, Body Space Medicine looks at the tongue as a headstand person. The surface of the tongue represents Ren meridian, the back of the tongue represents Du meridian. The tip of the tongue is the upper connection point for the Ren and Du meridian. The raised tip of the tongue indicates energy not being able to flow freely from Ren to Du meridian. Therefore we should make sure there is no energy blockage in upper connection point. Energy in the Upper Jiao can flow down to the Wai Jiao across the shoulder blade, and move downward to Ming Men area to promote Ming Men and Hui Yin, and this will make Gong Zhuan to flow freely.

BSM Formula

Gong Ying 2g  Du Huo 5g  Gui Zhi 1g  Shi Chang Pu 7g  Jie Geng 1g

Explanation of formula

  • Gong Ying: To promote the energy movement in the front part (ventral aspect) of body space. A dosage of 2 grams can promote energy in San Jiao, especially makes energy to collide Upper Jiao and to dissipate stagnated energy at heart area.
  • Du Huo:To lead energy flow from head to toes. Du Huo 5 grams can lead energy flow from head to coccyx to promote coccyx driving force. Therefore energy can flow freely from Du to Ren meridian creating a smooth Gong Zhuan flow.
  • Shi Chang Pu: To reduce energy density and pressure in the space around right atria and ventricle so that it promotes renewed energy flow to the head. Shi Chang Pu 7 grams can dissipate energy blockage from Shan Zhong by transferring the energy to Wai Jiao via Gong Zhuan path. Then the downward energy flow n Gong Zhuan collides at kidney area to stimulate original Qi and thereby nourishing the brain.
  • Gui Zhi: To open the cell membrane, making sure of balanced transformation from matter inside cells and energy outside cell and vice versa.
  • Jie Geng: To drive liver energy to flow along the diaphragm to reach lung area, and flow to the Wai Jiao through Gong Zhuan.

Other Treatments

Note: IHT: Inner Harmony Therapy

  • Shaking foot: To quickly stimulate the original body driving force, and promote the energy from toe to head, result in smooth Gong Zhuan.
  • Fire-touch shoulder blade: To create an exit for the accumulated energy, promote the energy in Upper Jiao move from shoulder blade to the Wai Jiao, then downward energy can collide kidney area to stimulate the Ming Men driving force.
  • Fire-touch coccyx: To promote and accelerate the energy movement from Du meridian to Ren meridian through Hui Yin, during the process, energy in the spinal column becomes reinforced and strengthens “spinal cord ” through which energy can flow to and nourish brain.
  • Inner harmony therapy: To stimulate and promote cellular function and purify polluted body space, resulting in strengthening the body, purifying the soul and advancing the mind.
