Focused on regulating the Qi flow in the organs of the body cavity, Daoist Zangfu Acupressure is a powerful bodywork treatment method to return fundamental health to very sick patients. Originally passed on by a wandering Daoist, it was nearly lost in the Cultural Revolution. Today, there are only a handful of people focused on using this incredible bodywork system in the clinic. It was the first clinical treatment method learned by Andrew Nugent-Head, taught to him by the late Professor Wang Jin-Huai.
