Most of us have a hammer, nails, and other tools for making basic repairs in our homes, as well as the ability to use them. If we make small repairs as they occur, our house remains well maintained and will last a long time. However, if we leave them unfixed, ultimately, the damage to the structure becomes so overwhelming that big renovations are necessary. The same principle applies to the human body.[digg=http://digg.com/general_sciences/Small_Repairs]
Acupuncture, acupressure, and moxibustion are like the hammer and nails we use to repair and maintain our houses. Anyone who has the ability to use a hammer and nails can practice acupuncture, acupressure, and moxibustion. You do not need the maintenance of your house. In much the same way, you do not need to know about all the structures and functions of the human body to use acupuncture, acupressure, and moxibustion. Moreover, we possess an amazing functional control panel called the brain. If we take the simplest measures to activate its functions, the brain will automatically take care of the rest. It is a sign of maturity to have the ability to manage our bodies and maintain our health as well as our family’s well-being. Perhaps this should be a requirement before creating fmailies!
