Counselling and Tai Yi Sessions


By Hossca Harrison

Life Energy Flow is the western name used for the ancient form of healing called Tai Yi. Tai Yi can have many different meanings depending on the use of the words. In reference to Life Energy Flow Tai Yi the meaning is Supreme Movement. Supreme Movement also means Supreme Health.

Tai Yi predates acupuncture by several thousand years in the history of China. Although Tai Yi or Supreme Movement comes from much earlier times beyond the civilization of China, it is the Chinese history I shall discuss.

Tai Yi is a healing principle using all meridians from all bodies. Acupuncture is a result of the ancient Tai Yi practice. Documents discovered some years ago in the Mawangdui tomb in China, which was sealed in 198 BCE, contain no reference to acupuncture as such, but does refer to a system of meridians very different from the current use of meridians used in acupuncture. This is typical of Tai Yi.

Over time Tai Yi became localized and was used in the mountainous area of northwest China, west of the Min River, near the border of Tibet, in Szechuan by an ancient people called the Chiang Tribe.

This ancient tribe is one of the "lost" tribes of Israel. During the last two thousand years their traditions have adopted some of the Chinese traditions, but for the most part continue with the ancient traditions of the tribes of Israel. According to their traditions the Chiang Tribe is a direct descendant of Abraham.

It was from this connection the Chiang Tribe carried Tai Yi to the Middle East two thousand years ago.

Tai Yi is taught by Hossca Harrison at the Tai Yi School of Ηealing.
