What is Bojin therapy and what is it used for?

What is Bojin therapy

You might have heard rave reviews of Bojin massages – revitalised skin, a more relaxed state of mind, and a better sculpted face. But do you know just how Bojin therapy works, and what it exactly can do for you? We’ll take a closer look at Bojin therapy, and share a little bit more about its applications.

Understanding Bojin therapy techniques

Understanding Bojin therapy techniques
Bojin therapy is often used to alleviate pains, maintain the elasticity of the muscles and maintain the free movement of joints. The therapy aims to unblock the energy or Qi channels in the body, a concept common in traditional Chinese medicine.

The main technique in Bojin therapy involves the use of the buffalo horn tool to unlock knots in deep tissues, apply pressure and massage the body. The horn tool is unique due to its shape, hardness, and its potential resonance with the human body’s frequencies, which can enhance the therapy’s effectiveness.

How does a Bojin facial work?

When used on the face, Bojin massage treatment generally follows a specific process.

  1. It starts with skin analysis and cleansing, followed by extraction of pimples and blackheads.
  2. The actual Bojin detox for face and eye acupuncture points comes next, where the therapist uses an acupuncture point massager to stimulate meridian points on the face to boost circulation.
  3. A facial and shoulder lymphatic detox massage is then performed, stretching facial muscles, increasing blood flow to the skin, and reducing stress.
  4. The process ends with the application of a nourishing facial mask and essential skincare products like toner, day cream, and sunscreen.

Benefits of Bojin therapy

Musculoskeletal health

Bojin Therapy is primarily used to address musculoskeletal issues. By targeting the muscle and bone structure, Bojin Therapy can help unblock energy or Qi channels in the body, alleviating issues like muscle stiffness, fibromyalgia, and chronic pain. It’s also used to maintain the elasticity of muscles and ensure the free movement of joints.

Skin health

Bojin Therapy is used to enhance the beauty of the skin by relieving internal stress. It is also applied in Bojin facial treatments to work on muscles and tissue around the face, releasing tension and potentially relieving stress and headaches. The treatment can help make the jaw look thinner and smooth out fine lines.

Emotional well-being

Bojin Therapy is said to soothe tensions and pains, promoting overall relaxation and mental well-being. It aims to improve the body’s natural energy flow by balancing and aligning the meridians on the front side of the body, which can have a positive effect on one’s emotional state.

Pain management

Bojin massages can relieve tension by working on multiple pressure points on your body. This combination of Traditional Chinese Medicine and self-healing techniques can be beneficial for pain management.

Non-invasive and safe

When done by qualified and skilled professionals, Bojin Therapy is non-invasive and has no side effects, making it a safer alternative to more invasive forms of treatment.

How is Bojin linked to TCM?

How is Bojin linked to TCM?

Bojin Therapy draws from some traditional Chinese medicine concepts, and is deeply rooted in its principles even as it looks to modern medicine for its understanding of our muscles and joints.

Bojin Therapy uses the classic TCM concept of Meridians and Qi, or “life energy”. The belief is that your Qi flows through pathways in the body known as meridians, and that any blockages in the meridians or imbalances in Qi flow can lead to illness, changes in health condition, or pain.

Bojin Therapy aims to unblock these meridian channels in the body so that Qi can flow properly through the meridian pathways, thereby restoring balance and promoting health.

Bojin therapy also taps the principles of acupressure and acupuncture, two key concepts in TCM. These principles involve the application of pressure or inserting thin needles at specific acupoints along the body’s meridians to stimulate the flow of Qi, thereby alleviating various ailments.

In Bojin therapy, the specially crafted buffalo horn massage tool is used to apply pressure on these acupoints, helping to unlock knots in deep tissues and increasing blood circulation.

A huge part of TCM’s philosophy is to have a holistic approach to wellness. Like TCM, Bojin therapy views the body as an interconnected system, and focuses on overall health instead of simply focusing on the treatment of specific symptoms. Bojin therapy addresses physical pain while also soothing emotions, thus promoting mental as well as physical health.

Is there any science behind Bojin therapy then?

At its core, Bojin therapy lies in its integration of western medicine.

  • Consideration of muscle and bone structure

Bojin marries the principles of TCM treatments like acupressure and acupuncture with modern knowledge about the musculoskeletal system, taking our anatomical structures and their role in musculoskeletal health into account. This approach allows for a more targeted approach in addressing issues related to muscle tension, pain, and joint mobility.

  • Circulation

While the TCM concept of meridians may not align precisely with the anatomical structures researched in Western medicine, Bojin therapy recognises the role of circulation in promoting health. The concept of unblocking energy channels to promote circulation and promote healing is resonant with a biomedical understanding of the body.

  • Is not contraindicated with other forms of Western medicine

Bojin therapy can be integrated with other modalities of Western medicine. For example, there is a possibility of combining Bojin facial massage with modern dermatological skincare products and practices to enhance their effectiveness.
