Preface

S

ince 2001, we have been working in close collaboration with the Việt  Y  Ðạo Center in Saigon, the Dien  Chan clinic of Professor Bùi Quốc Châu in Vietnam. In this time, we have set up the CLUBQC called now: Escuela Internacional de Multirreflexología - Dien Chan (EiMDC, International School of Multireflexology - Dien  Chan). We have created the training programs for each level, adapting all of Professor Châu’s notes and teaching to a Western educational system. Only four levels are necessary to understand, learn and practice the original method of Dien  Chan. Beware with dilutions. In addition to publishing the complete book of Dien  Chan in English, Spanish, French, Portuguese and Italian, with the help of this new 21st-century support, we

now offer the definitive multireflexology application called Faceasit. Since it was created, the technique has continued to evolve, and we want to share these advances with our students and followers. For the occasion, we have redrawn all the Dien Chan projection diagrams according to the historic tradition of the technique and accumulated experience. All those new diagrams of projection are included in this iBook as well as the corrections of the map of fix points.

The club of Dien Chan Organized into a group of accredited trainers, we propose certified courses in Multireflexology - Dien Chan in various countries in Europe, Latin America, the Caribbean, Polynesia and Africa.


All our students receive the same full program, with no simplification of its fundaments or the original multireflexology method. Our integrated courses are also hosted by leading international institutions and schools in the field of natural therapies. We will soon teach in Canada, Australia and USA to answer the demand of serious courses of the original facial reflexology method. From level 1 of a Dien  Chan course, students are members of the EiMDC club, created to support and accompany them as they learn. The club offers a private online space with teaching materials and guidance to complement your professional treatments (+info on the EiMDC website: www.multireflexology.com).

Editorial The revisions and editing for this new version of the Multireflexology - Dien  Chan book were performed in accordance with: The Oxford English Dictionary. The New Oxford Guide to Writing. A Resource for Technical Writers at All Levels. The Economist Style Guide.

For a document of this importance, length and complexity, our goal is to improve the quality and increase the readability of your content for a global English-speaking audience. In completing this version, our initial step was to revise sentences, word selection, spelling, grammar and voice. Our next step was to edit each page for consistency, clarity and accuracy. Revised text for: Multireflexology | Dien Chan Original text by Patryck Aguilar and Anna Roca, submitted by Elspeth Barker and Catherine Hart. This included changes to provide: • Adherence to British grammar and spelling conventions. • Logical, parallel sentence construction. • Consistency in the use of abbreviations, acronyms, punctuation, hyphens, capitalisation, professional titles, numeric standards, and specialised terms (e.g., “BQC·points”). • Increased “readability” (e.g., by reducing complexity and splitting long sentences into shorter ones.

ien  Chan is a method of facial reflexology established by Professor Bùi Quốc Châu, a Vietnamese practitioner and teacher of acupuncture, in 1980. It deals with the various pressure points on the face and which are different from those already known to acupuncture. By combining the theories of I-Ching, Tao and popular Vietnamese culture - and relying on detailed observation of similarities and differences in facial shape, plus clinical trials on thousands of patients – Professor Châu created a map to show the fixed points of his new system, Dien Chan. In 1984, after several years of research into ways to help patients manage their health, he proved that pressure point stimulation has rapid and profound effects. As a result, he no longer needed to use acupuncture needles in his treatments. Later, after studying Dr. Fitzgerald’s energy theory and Dr. Nogier’s reflexology system, Professor Châu verified that certain parts of the body are “reflected” in fixed points on the face. As a result, he created more than 25 diagrams to show various ways to achieve rapid relief from pain, whether caused by structural problems or chronic disorders. multireflexology.com

Knowing that every patient is different and that no single method works in the same way for everybody, Professor Châu continued his research with a view to improving his results and adapting Dien Chan to suit the majority of patients. Based on the philosophical principle of yin and yang, his methods quickly produce a profound balance in the body and its surrounding energies. Dien  Chan is multireflexological because it exerts yin or yang effects on the various fixed points seen on the map, thus complementing the treatment and consolidating the rebalancing effect.

The authors Patryck Aguilar Cassarà met Professor Châu in Barcelona in 2001. He immediately became enthralled with Châu’s work and decided to help him spread the word about Dien Chan in Europe. His first task, an enormous one, was to gather together all the teaching materials available and provide a structure for them. These materials were published in his book Dien Chan Facial Therapy. He then organised, for

the first time in Barcelona - Spain, a course with Professor Châu who, along with one of his sons (a therapist from the Việt Y Ðạo centre), has been invited back every year since then. The CLUBQC was established in 2002 for all of Professor Châu’s students worldwide. Patryck Aguilar also formed the first team of qualified teachers of Dien Chan in Europe at that time. Residing in Barcelona and serving as president of the International Dien Chan School of Multireflexology, Patryck continues to work in the development and dissemination of the method. He brings together experienced trainers and therapists in a community built around this method, one that is very much alive and constantly evolving. He then established the club of Dien  Chan (club EiMDC) for former students of the Escuela Internacional de Multirreflexología - Dien  Chan (EiMDC) and organised courses throughout the world, supported by a team of qualified teachers and applying the original methods without simplification.

Anna Roca Carrasco, foot reflexologist, acupuncturist and Bach flower therapist, discovered Dien  Chan in 2005. Impressed by the method, she became actively involved in spreading news of Dien  Chan and helped to organise courses given by Professor Châu and Patryck Aguilar. In 2006, after returning from her first trip to Vietnam, she and Patryck wrote a number of essays on Dien  Chan and updated the manual used on the course. This manual was first published in French in 2009 (ABC du Dien Chan, Edt Grancher, Paris). Patryck and Anna offered all their royalties to Professor Châu to thank him for sharing his teachings. Anna Roca is now the director of the Dien Chan International School of Multireflexology EiMDC. These days, she is in charge of coordinating a team of teachers while actively continuing her own research. She is also creating new opportunities and organising courses in Central and South America.


Purpose

t sell Their is no magic and no secret , we do no it! information, but the talent of spreading

The purpose of this book is to give people the chance to study Dien Chan. The book includes a number of diagrams and a complete map of pressure points plus detailed advice on how to use the method tools. It also includes an explanation of Dien Chan theory. The book provides illustrations of the various treatments to help you treat yourself, your family and friends. As therapists, we strongly recommend that you follow the course with a certified teacher and learn the movements and stimulation techniques (which are not always easy to describe in written form). A good therapist or teacher is not always easy to find. However by reading a great deal and making inquiries in your local community, you should be able to locate one. A good therapist or teacher must be able to explain, in detail, the reason for using each of the BQC·points, the meaning of the diagrams and how to design treatments. An easy reference source of treatments with illustrations will help you to start treating yourself, your family and friends.

WHAT IS DIEN CHAN The study of the human face is not recent in society with a medicine of long tradition because the face is given certain importance in comparison to the rest of the body. Feeling, psychological and physiological behavior as well as the body conditions can be indeed perceived in the face. It could be seen as the reverse of the brain, which is the most powerful organ in our body.

he face, with its vast network of blood vessels, nerves and acupuncture meridians, is a highly sensitive part of the body. Oriental medicine considers the face to be the focus of yang energy. Older methods of treatment position several acupuncture points on the face and use these to treat certain diseases. Later Chinese documents show the development of facial acupuncture to the stage at which there were twenty-four points used to treat disease. However, in practice you are not limited to these twenty-four points. Dien  Chan therapy is different from acupuncture. Instead of using meridians, it relies on a multireflexology system comprising 100 reflex points, 20 of which are found on the face. Ancient and modern medical methods (including acupuncture and clinical experience) have detected close links between parts of the face and corresponding areas of the body. Certain conditions can thus be diagnosed and a system drawn up to show these links.

Note on terminology

It is essential, when it comes to a new invention or discovery, to be able to explain and communicate new concepts. To help the reader understand the terms used in this book, some definitions follow. Initially, Professor Bùi Quốc Châu called his discovery:

Diện Chẩn – Điều Khiển Liệu Pháp which literally means “Facial Diagnosis and Cybernetic Therapy”. The literal translation of the Vietnamese concept into English is “face diagnosiscybernetic therapy”. Shorter versions of this are used in the west; names such as “Facythérapie”; “Facialthérapie”; “Facioterapia”; “Vinamassage” or even “Dien  Chan”. Another name “Dien Cham” (acupuncture of the face) is a misrepresentation, because it is not based on the correct methods. “Cybertherapy” has recently been used to define this discipline and includes both treatments: that of the face and of the rest of the body.

NOTE Nº3


(Note

on terminology)

When first writing about his discovery, Professor Bùi Quốc Châu used the concept “reflexology multisystem”, but the term “multireflexology” is better for expressing both meanings of the concept. First, it involves a multifaceted (mathematical) correspondence with the organ reflex in a body; and second, a multiple reflex (as in geometrical optics) that involves a correspondence with two or more reflex points of an organ. The concept of the “living point” (“sinh huyêt” in Vietnamese) is used instead of “reflex point” (“dinh huyêt” - fixed point - in Vietnamese) each time the reflex point becomes hypersensitive due to a reflex organ condition. The coordinates of this living point are slightly different from those of the coordinates of the fixed point, i.e. the BQC·point. Sometimes, the living point is incorrectly referred to the as “painful point” although, in fact, it causes pain only in certain situations. First book published by Pr. Bùi Quôc Châu 
 in 1984 in Saigon Vietnam.

BQC·points These are the fixed points on the face that Professor Bùi Quốc Châu discovered and which form the basis of Dien  Chan. The map shows both vertical and horizontal axes, which allows for precise coordinates.
 These BQC·points are used in numerous treatment formulæ and have been numbered in chronological order, according to the date they were discovered. At the start of his search, Professor Bùi Quốc Châu gave each point a Vietnamese name relating to its effects. However, the large number of points soon made this system unmanageable. Professor Châu then decided to number the points, thus achieving a more international system. A few numbers have been omitted, because the points to which they referred were less important than others. In this book, you will find a complete map of all the BQC·points along with a list of effects, indications and contraindications of many of them.

The Dien Chan map Each line on the Dien  Chan map depends on the anatomy common to all faces. It is important that you learn to read the map correctly if you are to carry out a treatment. Before proceeding with treatment, find the right lines on the face and the appropriate BQC·point by reading the coordinates Activating pain points is also part of Dien  Chan and consists in stimulating the reflex zones pertaining to a particular diagram. If you want to use the BQC·points formula, with its inherent strengths, you must able to read and use the official map. Imagine a head submerged in water. Lines on the surface of the water show the shape of the face in relief. All the lines are horizontal except ‘0’ which follows the root of the scalp. On the map, Roman numerals (I, II, III, IV…) refer to horizontal lines, and Arabic numerals (1, 2, 3, 4…) are used down the side to facilitate the use of the coordinates page. For example, the vertical line ‘G’ transects the centre of the pupil of the eye, while the vertical line ‘B’ transects the centre of the nostril, irrespective of the size of the nose. Lines ‘H’ and ‘E’ are the external and internal vertical tangents of the iris.

T

he principles on which Professor Bùi Quốc Châu based his discoveries of reflex points and diagrams originated in the philosophy, literature and linguistics of the east in antiquity. The theory he used to establish the positions of points on the face (and the concept of the nonpainful point) was influenced by the saying: “There is no yang without yin and no yin without yang”. The meaning of this – found in I-Ching and Nôi-Ching books – is that yin and yang always exist together and cannot exist in isolation, because each contains the essence of the other. This led Professor Châu to conclude that each painful point carries a non-painful point within it. This was merely a theory at the time but was later proven in clinical trials. He arrived at one of his first conclusions when treating a patient who was complaining of pain at a specific point in the backbone. The principle of corresponding shapes gave him the idea of building the Dien Chan reflex schemes. (For example, the bridge of the nose corresponds to the spinal column.) Professor Châu did not yet know where the points corresponding to the neck and sacrum might be located but was convinced

www.dienchan.co.uk

he would be able to find a pain reflex point in his patient’s spinal column. After doing some research on the bridge of the nose, and thanks to acupuncture, he found this point. Professor Bùi Quốc Châu then decided to apply the I-Ching principle – “there is no yang without yin and no yin without yang” –, which led him to the abovementioned idea of a non-painful point being within a painful point. He applied an acupuncture needle to a patient’s painful point. The patient felt immediately relieved and stated that he did not feel as much pain as before. He noticed that the pain in that area gradually disappeared. To confirm the objectivity and impartiality of his theories, Professor Châu tested them on several patients with similar conditions. He could always find patients with these same symptoms among the large number of drug addicts at the centre where he worked. He also asked his students to carry out a number of tests and obtained the same results. During this period, Professor Bùi Quốc Châu did not number his points but instead gave them Vietnamese names. Later, when he started teaching, he decided to number them, sorting them by chronological order of discovery. This is how he came up with point nº1, located on the


3: History of Dien Chan • P.19

bridge of the nose. From this hypothesis (which he later proved), he developed the yang diagram of a red man facing down. The nose corresponds to the spinal column; the eyebrows to the arms; the lip area to the legs; and the chin to the feet. He discovered similar phenomena in the Vietnamese language in which organs or other things can be associated and lead to new concepts or new words. The only proviso is that there be some form of correspondence between the two.

used in treatment. To treat stomach ache, a pig’s stomach filled with peppercorns was used. This affirmation is also found in eastern philosophy and is reflected in sayings like “every single being and thing share the same nature” and “the human body is a microcosm inside a macrocosm”. He arrived at these conclusions by applying the essential principles of his method, those of similarity in shape, which led to the development of facial diagrams and eventually to the whole body diagram.

For example, in Vietnamese cô tay (neck hand) means “wrist”; cô chan This principle is based on the (neck foot) means “ankle”; saying “what looks alike is and cô hong (neck gullet) Such a young and modern connected” as it appears in the Imeans “throat”.

ike other “light” complementary therapies that do not use medicines, Dien  Chan therapy achieves best results in the treatment of nervous, circulatory and endocrine diseases. We have also observed outstanding results where joint and muscle problems are involved and with infection and inflammation. However, the most serious illnesses or those that are terminal in nature are not within the scope of Dien Chan. As the full name of this method indicates (facial diagnosis and cybernetic therapy), the face is considered the centre for information on and control of all bodily functions. Each reflex point represents transmitter and receiver for the corresponding organ. The reflex point intervenes in both treatment and regulation. It is important to understand that each reflex diagram or point has no direct link to the organ or zone in itself but rather to an area of the brain. The stimulation of a reflex zone activates a process of auto-regulation of the corresponding organ in that area. This is why a zone can be sensitive even though an organ has been removed or a part of the body amputated. Phantom limb pain can be relieved with Dien  Chan stimulation of reflex

multireflexology.com

zones or points. Dien  Chan theories of facial diagnosis apply in the same way. As a start, you need to look for a positive response from the patient, to verify that you have chosen the correct technique for the corresponding zone and are using the appropriate tool. If more than 80 percent pain relief is achieved, treatment can be paused. Chronic pain tends to reappear a few hours after a first treatment. Treating the patient a second time not only provides relief but, as previously mentioned, helps to reactivate the process of auto-regulation and therefore recovery. A number of disorders can be treated with repeated Dien Chan sessions or simply when they reappear. To better understand the method, we need to introduce some complementary concepts.

Theory 
 of synchronic painful points When a disorder is present, there may be pain in an organ and pain at the sites of various reflex points at the same time. The intensity of pain, swelling, cramping and other similar sensations is directly related to the


5: Theoretical foundation of Dien Chan • p.24

gravity of the disorder. When the intensity of pain diminishes, so does the sensitivity of the reflex points. Pain in reflex points clearly indicates a disorder of some type. Such signs are extremely important in diagnosis and treatment.

Non-painful points If a reflex point becomes insensitive, then treatment using BQC·points is effective. In this case, we need to apply the principle of proportionality,
 i.e., the number of insensitive points is proportional to the gravity of the case. If you are a beginner in the use of Dien  Chan methods, you need not worry about this concept. It is unlikely you will recognise the difference between a non-painful point and an error in establishing the coordinates of a BQC·point. After acquiring some experience and stimulating a BQC·point repeatedly in several patients, you will become more confident that you are stimulating the correct point. A patient insensitive to point stimulation needs to be calmed. Gentle stimulation of the entire face for a few minutes using a yang tool (e.g. small yang balls) may be necessary to bring sensitivity back to the patient.

multireflexology.com

Yin and Yang, 
 the law of extremes Like all Eastern medical methods, Dien  Chan combines the concepts of Eastern philosophy and cosmology. This is why some yin or yang classifications surprise us. Professor Châu knows and respects the yin-yang theories of traditional Chinese medicine but has adapted those concepts to his own clinical trials. He uses the yin and yang concepts in relation to the patient’s pathology and condition. • Top is yang; bottom is yin. • An upward movement is yang. • A downward movement is yin. • Right is yang. • Left is yin. • A left-to-right movement is yang. • A right-to-left movement is yin. • An outside-to-inside movement is yang. • An inside-to-outside movement is yin. • Verticality is yang. le: the p m a s a s i • Horizontality T h i s is yin. 196 s i k o o B i original pages.

• Yin and yang are symmetric to an axis or centre. • Yin and yang are complementary and opposite at the same time. • Yin and yang always co-exist. • Yin is yang and vice versa. • The yin-yang transformation evolves in time and space. • Yang is at the extreme of yin and vice versa. • Concentration of yang involves yin‚ dissipation and vice versa. • When isolated, yang is neutralized. The same thing happens with yin.

5: Theoretical foundation of Dien Chan • p.26

Reverse effect Depending on the patient’s condition, the length and intensity of treatment per reflex point may vary. If certain limits are exceeded, effectiveness may be neutralized. This principle also applies to acupuncture, in which the amount of time a needle is in use is crucial. Applying a needle for more or less time than is required may alter the results of treatment. The frequency of treatment is also a key factor. In Dien  Chan therapy, limits should not be exceeded given that overstimulation of points may undo its effects and cause pain relief to be neutralized. It is essential to communicate with the patient and to know when to stop treatment.

Point nº26

Point nº19

Symmetries Some reflex points are symmetrically placed. There are three core points on the face: vertical ‘O’, horizontal ‘V’ and horizontal ‘IV’ (see map of face points).There are also two symmetry core points: points nº26 and nº19. The symmetric reflex points corresponding to those core lines are both synergic and opposite. Not all BQC·points have the same numbering (see core line 26/19).

BQC ·points

These BQC·points with different numbering correspond to particular organs that are not found on both sides of the body. Using the reflex diagram of internal organs on the face, you can establish that (for example) point nº50 (the liver) is symmetrical to point nº70 (the stomach).

Communicating vessels There is a relationship between therapist and patient that is based on communicating vessels. This is more common in natural therapies than in those using medicines. If the therapist is more depressed than the patient, he risks catching the illness. This phenomenon has been observed, for example, in cases of migraine. This is why the therapist has to be in good spirits.

Vital energy flows toward 
 the weaker points The treatment of each reflex point will affect only the diseased organ and not healthy organs. This is because the disease activates the reflex. The patient will feel the effects of treatment on the diseased organ or zone when the therapist stimulates the active reflex point. The stimulation of BQC·points or areas acts on the brain of the patient, activating his capacity for auto-regulation and treatment. You should have no fear of affecting other organs; the brain knows what to do.

Affinity and hostility The concepts of affinity and hostility refer to the relationship between active reflex points or between a fixed point and a certain illness.
 For example, points nº26 and nº6 are hostile to each other and cannot be used together or the effects will be neutralized. Points nº34 and nº124, however, show affinity. If you use both of them at the same time, treatment will be more effective. Point nº127 cannot be used in the treatment of diarrhoea caused by a cold. Point nº26, which has

an antihypertensive effect, cannot be used in the treatment of drunkenness. Professor Châu and our team of therapists have treated thousands of patients and therefore been able to prove these effects. All these concepts help to understand the Dien Chan technique more fully and to use it more effectively.

They should not be used at the same time.
 The fact that they complement each other will produce the greatest relief from pain. You may use them on both the affected areas and the reflex zones according to the diagrams and BQC·points. We will now explain the eight Dien  Chan principles based on the treatment of a common disorder, an aching right elbow, with the introduction of techniques and tools. Constant communication between patient and therapist is essential and will help you remember each of the principles and know when to stop treatment (as soon as the objective has been achieved).

Eight Dien Chan principles Professor Bùi Quốc Châu has established a program based on eight essential principles of reflexology. All of these principles need to be memorized, although they do not need to be applied in the same order as that given here.

You can work on the painful zone using several different Dien  Chan tools. A simple massage, using the Moxa, roller or small hammer tool can produce great results. If the pain is too intense and cannot be treated locally, then proceed to the next principle. Going back to the example of elbow pain, apply the yang roller with the spike ball to the elbow for one minute or, using the small hammer, gently tap the elbow 50 times.

THE 
 DIEN CHAN MAP OF FIX POINTS Before studying and using the complete map of Dien  Chan BQC·points it is important to know that face is divided in two sides. Tai Qi sketch illustrate the meaning of this matter. Points stimulated on the right side produce a yang effect and are marked in formulas by a plus sign (eg: 300+ for right kidney; yang effect). The yin effects points are on the left side on the face and are marked in formulas by a minus sign (eg: 3for left lung; yin effect). The Dien Chan map we present here is complete and all points have a meaning, indications and effects. We never simplify the original method of professor Bùi Quốc Châu because we believe that in such a new technique it is important students have access to the pure genuine information to be able to continue investigating and discovering new combinations.

rofessor Bùi Quốc Châu designed his first tools over many years in practice. At first, he deployed his theories with acupuncture needles and microneedles and developed techniques that produced quick and effective results but demanded great skill. We should not forget his objective, which was to offer a simple treatment technique for people too poor to have access to traditional medicine and without the money to pay for a doctor. He realized that it was possible to achieve stimulation simply by pressing on some of the points he had discovered. This led him to a number of interesting conclusions. He then started investigating types of stimulation and the tools to be used. After experimenting with various materials, he managed to design a stainless steel detector. He found that applying pressure by sweeping reflex areas was very effective. However, results were not conclusive when using traditional Chinese tools. Professor Bùi Quốc Châu then redesigned the balls and rollers used in traditional medicine and added spikes and prongs. The results of applying those tools to different parts of the body were as amazing as those obtained when he later used smaller versions of these same tools on the multireflexology.com

face. Each Dien  Chan tool may be adapted to a specific patient. Professor Bùi Quốc Châu and his team realized that a therapist cannot use only one technique or tool and that the therapist’s frame of mind is also important. This diversity enriches the treatment and allows for adaptation to the patient in the best possible way. The Dien  Chan tools may look odd at first glance but they can be surprisingly effective. Anyone can use this treatment and choose the most appropriate tools according to the problem to be treated. Although several versions of the tools (in different materials) can be found, genuine tools are made of stainless steel and natural horn. multireflex™ tools are made by hand and no animals have been harmed in their production. The horn comes from farm animals. All the tools are useful, but it is important to bear in mind what they are made of when buying them, since prices and quality may vary. Also, plastic tools may damage the skin.

There are two groups of tools Tools that produce yang effects and tools that produce yin effects. The therapist should start with a tool he regards as suitable and one that the patient is comfortable with. The therapist must talk to the patient before deciding whether he should use a yang tool for a yin disorder or vice versa. Therapists who know about traditional Chinese medicine do not always need to be influenced by the yin and yang theory but can apply the tools according to the disorder. The main objective is always to achieve a balance. A patient’s comments on how the disorder makes him feel can help the therapist to know whether the problem is yin or yang in character. For example, if the patient feels hot, the therapist can choose a yin tool to refresh him. If the pain is located at a certain point, the therapist may use a yin tool to scatter the pain. If a patient complains about mild pain or feels cold, the therapist should try treatment with a yang tool first of all. Some therapists use kinesiology to decide which tool is the most appropriate. If the expected results are not achieved, then perhaps the therapist should not follow treatment multireflexology.com

parameters quite so strictly. What is important is listening to the patient and combining that dialogue with flexibility as regards Dien  Chan principles, tools and stimulation techniques. Tools with yang effects

These tools warm, concentrate, activate and move. All multireflex tools composed of spike balls are considered yang tools, as well as the small rubber hammer, the rubber spikes on the big hammer and the BQC·point detector. The effects of a yang tool can be emphasized if it is used in an upward movement while rolling or while stimulating points in a treatment formula. In case of not obtaining the expected results, the therapist must not show himself strict towards the treatment.

Tools with yin effects

Yin tools are those wit h stainless steel prongs, rollers or copper cylinders, the spikes on the side of the small hammer and the rubber cup on the big hammer. Yin tools with a copper cylinder cool while prongs and rollers scatter. The effects of a yin tool can be emphasized if it is used in downward movements while rolling or stimulating a BQC·point in a treatment formula. Consumables

Moxa sticks and heat patches are especially designed for multireflexology to stimulate points on the face and to provide heat. Cut the patches into small squares, 7 mm x 7 mm (approximately 0.3 in x 0.3 in) and leave them throughout the night on the points to be stimulated.

n order to use multireflexology tools correctly, look for the most sensitive reflex zone. The patient’s pain will guide you to it. For optimal use of the tools, it is important to communicate with the patient while stimulating and to check for improvement, between massages, in his condition. The detector may be yang or yin, depending on the way it is used. If you need to sweep a zone, use it as a yin tool. If you need to press or scratch (sweeping with more pressure), use it as a yang tool. Simple stimulation is a matter of yang. Stimulating a point on the right side of the face produces a yang effect while simulating a point on the left of the face has a yin effect. Detector may be yang or yin, depending on the way we use it. If what we need is sweeping a zone, we will use it as a yin tool. If what we need is pressing or scratching multireflexology.com

(sweeping with more pressure), we will use it a yang tool. Simply stimulation points is a yang matter. Also stimulating a point in the right side of the face is looking for a yang effect. However, simulating a point in the left side of the face will be a yin matter.

The «Comet» detector nº133

The comet is a tool for detoxifying and recreating balance. Its thick detector can be used for stimulation in the case of delicate skin and its triple detector has a cooling effect. Its larger diameter serves to stimulate points on the face without damaging the skin, as it is less incisive. On the reflexology areas of the skull, it allows precise stimulation without digging into the scalp. The two different ends of the comet are used to carry out reflex-drainage or 6 zones massage. To obtain a yang effect with this protocol, we use the thick detector. In the event of a higher body temperature, the triple end allows us to apply the protocol with yin effects.

Rolling

Tool techniques and use Dien  Chan therapy involves constant creativity in the use of the diagrams and tools. When beginning a treatment, you must listen to the patient’s description of his problem and consider the options for treatment. This dialogue with the patient will help you choose the direction to follow. You should avoid relying on only one or two techniques or treatments. It is preferable to vary the techniques and the tools used depending on the patient’s condition, and important to refer to the reflex diagrams and follow the tips provided. In this section, you will learn about the following techniques for using multireflex tools: To use the tools effectively and know where to apply them, you must first search on the reflex diagram for the most sensitive points or zones. After identifying these, stimulate the same point continually until the pain decreases and eventually disappears. If you do not have time to treat all the points in the treatment diagram, just focus on the hypersensitive points in the reflex zone or in the affected zone.

Gently hold the roller by the handle at an angle of 45-degrees. Make a rolling movement while applying minimal pressure. It is best to increase the pressure gradually until the pain disappears. Choose the ball model according to the surface of the zone. The spike balls produce yang effects. Stainless steel rollers or copper cylinders are yin tools. Stainless steel cylinders are used for less sensitive zones like the scalp. The prongs improve skin perspiration and dissipation of pain. Hammering

Hammers are classified according to their size and the contact surface. Rubber cones are yang surfaces. The seven spikes of the small hammer or the single rubber pad on the big hammer are yin. The small hammer with the single rubber cone is used to stimulate active reflex points. The elasticity of the steel handle is useful for tapping the skin. However, if you tap too hard you will need to stop


7: Multireflexology Tools • p.40

after every five taps to avoid local bruising. If you tap gently, you can do it 20 or 30 times without stopping. Precision in tapping is important if the patient is to feel the results. Otherwise, he will not feel anything. The big hammer with multiple cones is also used to tap the back, shoulders, buttocks, hips, thighs and larger joints. The part with the pad is used for tapping fleshy parts and activating the circulation. It relaxes the muscles and produces elasticity in tendons. Combing

There two types of comb, both of them used as yin tools. Keep the comb firmly perpendicular to the skin. Do horizontal and / or vertical movements, in any order, depending on the comfort of the patient. Maintain regular pressure, especially in the most sensitive areas. Both areas with and without hair may be combed. Combing the scalp gently during 5 minutes is an excellent way to start treatment, relaxing deeply the patient.

Pressing

It is very important to learn how to detect painful points. Using the detector tool is essential here, since (and despite the precision of BQC·points) there could be a gap of just a few millimetres between them, especially on the forehead, nose, chin, and other zones with the most points. Place the detector perpendicular to the skin. Hold it loosely and press gently at the point of pain. The intensity of pain may sometimes bring tears to the patient’s eyes. Points can be soft or hard and the latter do not cause pain. Be careful to avoid damage to the skin when pressing with the detector. Move the detector to search for the painful point, while encouraging the patient to confirm where that point is located. Note: Avoid the use of detectors with springs, which do not allow you to use pressure to reveal the sensitivity of the point.

: the e l p m a s a This is is 196 k o o B i When you believe you have located a painful l a origin point, move the detector away; return to the . pagesthen point to check the diagnosis based on the patient’s feedback (verbal or non-verbal). Place the detector perpendicular to the skin again and press it for 30 seconds to allow the patient to identify a change in the intensity of pain at the point or in the affected zone. Hypersensitivity of the stimulated point involves intense pain but good results come from stimulation. Vibrating

After locating the painful point, use the detector and carry out gentle vibratory movements across the skin without scratching. This results in dynamic stimulation (while simply pressing would result in passive stimulation). The d ire c t io n u s e d w he n vibrating is not important. Continue stimulation for 30 seconds.


7: Multireflexology Tools • p.42 the

Dispersing

Move the detector perpendicular to the skin, pressing gently and following the anatomical line of the zone being treated (outer ear, creases found between the nose and the lips, top part of the chin under the lips, eyebrows, etc). Focus on the painful area. The patient will actively feel pain, which should then disappear. This technique is really effective if the two previous methods do not work. Stimulation by dispersing can go on for one minute in each zone. Applying heat and oils

Cut the heat patch in small squares, 7 mm x 7 mm (approximately 0.3 in x 0.3 in). Apply the adhesive part to the active points identified by the detector. You can apply them in an attractive pattern. You must not apply heat patches for more than three hours during the day. If you apply them in the evening, they can be left on the skin all night and removed first thing in the morning. In general, the patches are used more often for long-term or chronic diseases. In the case of acute multireflexology.com

Apply pathe the patches three times on the patches to the skin and leave them in place for three hours. Remove the patches and wait for at least three hours before applying new ones. Apply the oil several times to keep the active reflex point warm or massage the zone gently with the yang ball. The use of natural essential oils helps to obtain faster results. We use biological oils bottled in flasks of dark violet glass. According to Dien  Chan therapy, it is better not to use liquid essences because solutions like these may make the skin colder as they evaporate. To avoid catching a cold, the patient is recommended not to shower for at least two hours after the application of patches or oil. You should not use this technique if the patient has a temperature because it may cause constipation, irritation or dry skin. Warming: The most experienced Dien  Chan therapists use Moxibustion because of the outstanding results it delivers. Heat works like an acupuncture needle on the BQC·points and reaches the reflex zone precisely and effectively. Hold the Moxa with your thumb, index and middle fingers. Lean it on your little finger to establish an ideal

position. Move the Moxa slowly and observe the patient’s reaction. At certain points, the burning sensation may be more intense than at others but do not stop. If the patient reacts (to intense burning), move the Moxa away for a few seconds. Massage the point in the same place twice more. If necessary, apply a cream to alleviate the burning feeling. Remember that patients who live in a country with mild weather may be more sensitive to the heat. Warming is especially recommended for those problems related to the cold, such as influenza, rheumatism and inflammation of the ear, nose and throat (orl/ent) including sinusitis, numbness or bruising. Do not use the Moxa more than once a day because it may cause burns. Applying cold

Apply small ice cubes to the skin, rubbing the zone where the patient is most sensitive to cold. Stop when pain decreases, look for another sensitive point and restart treatment. Do not apply ice cubes to the forehead for a long time because this may cause a headache. Cold is particularly effective when treating disorders common in a hot climate (such as high temperature, sunstrokes or sudden diarrhoea). multireflexology.com

A few tips on the use of multireflex tools Usually, you should ask the patient to wash her face before treatment starts, although there may be cases when a female patient does not want you to disturb her makeup. If the skin is very dry, you might consider using natural oils in your treatment. Take care if a rash, eczema or psoriasis is present, especially if you are not experienced in dealing with skin problems. If you cannot work on the face, remember the scalp diagram. The scalp is easy to reach and patients derive a number of benefits from its treatment. Taking care of the tools

To keep the tools clean, wash them with water and soap or a mild alcohol solution. This will prevent infection and the spreading of illness. A copper tool may lose its shine with use but you can restore it by rinsing it in lemon juice. Horn is natural, so be careful with strong alcohol solutions and hot liquids. Using warm water and soap is usually sufficient.

Some examples and tips 
 in the usage of multireflex tools There are a number of different tools, and you should select which to use depending on the patient’s disorder. The use of each tool must be studied carefully. You can buy the tools (according to reference number) from the online shop of the International School of Multireflexology - Dien  Chan, the DienShop (dienshop.com). To find information on a tool, go to your internet browser and type in the reference number of the tool followed by multireflex.com. Example: For the nº101 detector, type “101.multireflex.com”. This will take you to information and advice on using this detector. Here, we will describe only what they are made of and their structure:

multireflexology.com

SMALL SPIKED BALLS 
 (TOOLS Nº206 & 307) The small yang balls are often used to treat stiff necks, fatigue and joint pain. They can also be used on the face to treat spots and for massaging, smoothing and softening wrinkles and expression lines. The small yang ball stimulates and may be used for stress-related migraine. If, after using the yin rollers, there is no improvement in the patient’s symptoms (insomnia, nerves, high blood pressure, influenza, colds and throat inflammation) then the spike balls, as they activate blood circulation, are recommended. LARGE SPIKED BALLS 
 (TOOL Nº410 & 432) Large yang balls help to eliminate abdominal fat and water retention. They also work well for numbness, circulatory problems, muscle fatigue, kidney inflammation, constipation and diarrhoea. The spike balls are used to treat backache, organ fatigue, stiff neck, vertebral osteophytes (bone

spurs), insomnia, haemorrhoids, toothache, migraine, indigestion, hypertension, frequent urination at night and cold feet. For painful menstruation, massage the inner part of the left forearm, near the bend in the elbow. Due to its large size, the yang ball is suitable for neck; shoulder and arm massage as it produces a stimulating and relaxing effect.

YIN ROLLERS WITH PRONGS
 (TOOLS Nº206, 308, 411 & 433) Tools with small yin rollers are used for treating migraine and insomnia when the patient feels feverish. They also work on nerves, influenza with fever; excessive perspiration of the hands, feet and face and joint pain. All yin rollers help to keep the face toned and eliminate adolescent spots. The yin end is used to cool, drain and relax, whereas the yang end serves to warm, concentrate and tone. For example, spasms between the shoulder blades can be quickly eased by rolling the most pleasant end of the tool over the space between the eyebrows for about 2 minutes.

Since they are yin tools, they relax the body and lower temperature. They help to disperse local pain and make massaging large areas, such as the back or legs, far easier due to their size. This tool is ideal for gentle massage along the acupuncture meridians, rebalancing them in the case of yang disorders. The rollers are also very effective in achieving relaxation, calming and lowering temperature, and treating menstrual pain when the patient feels feverish. Brass tools are very useful for controlling temperature and for treating nightmares and general problems with the nervous system.
 They are also effective for muscle contractions and organ pain. Rollers nº413 or nº207 are highly practical for specific massage of rounded areas such as fingers, ankles and the side of the foot.

RAKES (TOOLS Nº206, 252, 374 & 416) Rakes are considered to be yin tools and are used for treating migraine, insomnia, sciatica and hair loss. The yin rake activates blood circulation in the face and cranium. The small rake combats and calms migraine when used with a gentle downward massage around the temples. To produce relaxation after stress, raking the whole scalp is recommended and works quickly.
 A gentle massage (50 times) on the left side of the forehead is effective against nightmares. DIRECT MASSAGING TOOLS 
 (Nº101 & 424) The natural horn smooth ball on detector nº101 is used for stimulating sensitive zones and giving short, gentle massage with natural oils. You can use the massage stick to treat hypertension or nodes on the back of the neck. Foot reflexologists and other healers use the multireflex massage stick to avoid tiring their hands.

DETECTORS (Nº101 & 133)

A detector is a basic Dien  Chan tool, used to identify and stimulate points on the face. The thick detector is used to treat patients with weakened skin or those sensitive to pain caused by the thin detector. It may also be used to massage the affected area directly. Communication with the patient must be on-going in order to gauge the amount of pressure to be applied in each case. A triple detector is used in the “six zones protocol” when we need stimulation to be yin in character. This is because massage with the big detector is mainly yang. Detectors with a spring may be found in specialized shops. However, these are not recommended in Dien Chan treatment, as they do not allow for accurate measurement of the applied pressure.

HAMMERS (TOOLS Nยบ128 & 430) The large hammer nยบ430 has both a yin part (the pad) and a yang part (rubber spikes). It is used to treat joint pain, sciatica, spinal fatigue and muscle conditions. Moreover, tapping the affected area for three minutes works on the feet, hands and shoulders and is really useful for tight back muscles. The small hammer also has two sides, yin and yang, and is used to complement the detector when stimulating points.

The yin side (stainless steel spikes) has to be used gently, tapping lightly. The yang part is composed of a rubber pad (black, red or yellow depending on the manufacturer) and is excellent for stimulating points on the face.


7: Multireflexology Tools • p.51

The small hammer may be used to stimulate for longer than the detector (1 minute per point). Very good results can be achieved by using the small hammer to stimulate points where heat patches have already been applied. This tool is especially useful to treat tingling in the arms, throat inflammation, and ear, nose and throat (ENT) disorders. The small hammer is ideal for relaxing the nervous system, the trapezius muscle and the shoulders (working on the reflex zone of the eyebrows). It is very practical for gently tapping reflex zones on the forehead or cranium. Gently tapping the temples with the spikes of the small hammer (nÂş128) works in treating migraine and headaches.

MOXA STICKS (REF Nº642) The multireflex-moxa is more rigid and denser than those found in a traditional medicine shop.
 It does not have a strong smell and can reach a very high temperature: 700ºC (1300ºF). The moxa sticks are practical for the stimulation of reflex points on the face, but a sound knowledge of Dien Chan is needed before they can be used. They can be used for treating problems in the ears or the throat and the rest of the body. HEAT PATCHES (REF Nº644) Heat patches contain camphor and menthol and produce and maintain heat on the points. These are often used in the treatment of chronic disease. Heat patches should be used in place of essences because liquids evaporate and cool the skin, undermining the expected results. There are several heat patch brands of different sizes but our clinical tests indicate the “Salonpas™” patches are the most effective. The patches should be cut into small squares, 7  mm x 7  mm (approximately 0.3 in x 0.3 in) and applied to the

treatment points. The patches can be left on for three hours during the day or, if applied in the evening, all night. MINIBOOK OF DIAGRAMS (REF Nº751) This practical book should be kept at hand as it shows all the reflex diagrams and main reflex points in pictorial form. It is 11  cm x 11  cm, printed in high quality colour and laminated, which makes it easy to use in the treatment room. The official MiniBook of Diagrams includes the latest designs and all the brain diagrams and points of the viscera. We have corrected a few small errors on the map that were confusing students. For example, points 17 and 29 are not on the line but on the

vertical where the edge of the mouth begins. Point zero is not on the line but on the imaginary horizontal tangent of the pinna. We have also adjusted the colour of the gall bladder to make it and all the viscera stand out more clearly. Following Professor Bùi Quốc Châu’s guidance, we corrected the connection between the knee and the elbow, as seen on the diagram of the skull. REFLEX DIAGRAM POSTERS (REF Nº908) Large posters, 40  cm b y 6 0  c m ( 1 5 . 7 5 inches by 23.6 inches) show all the main reflex diagrams and a map of Dien  Chan points. Students and therapists use these both for reference and for decoration. We have corrected a number of small errors regarding coordinates on the diagrams and have added various points on the side map to help students find them easily. multireflexology.com

DIEN CHAN IS MULTIREFLEXOLOGY Dien Chan is a technique, a multireflexologic method. That means that we cannot pretend to cure all diseases. The fundamental principle is to re-balance the body and provoke our auto-regulation natural process. More we study about human body and other techniques, better results we will obtain. Dien Chan is an excellent way to take the reins of our health for profane and an amazing vector to combine our knowledges for professionals.

originated with techniques to be applied to the face. Diagrams covering the rest of the body were later drawn up. There are a total of 257 fixed BQC·points on the complete map of the face, and the reflex diagrams for the whole body are based on them. A network that embraces the circulatory and nervous systems along with acupuncture meridians enables you to diagnose and treat conditions depending on the sensitivity of facial BQC·points. This is the basis of Dien Chan. Like acupuncture meridians, the circulatory system can be compared to a landline telephone network. In contrast, connections in the Dien  Chan method are more akin to those in a mobile phone network. Each time you stimulate a BQC·point in a reflex zone based on one of the reflex diagrams, you send information directly to the brain. The brain is responsible for the self-regulation of the affected zone.

he primary goal of Dien  Chan, when it appeared soon after the Vietnam War, was to help the patient become his own healer. The Vietnamese were very poor and had been badly affected by the conflict. Professor Bùi Quốc Châu wanted to help his people by providing simple methods to help them treat themselves. Today, both in Vietnam and in many other countries, therapies and medicines of all sorts are available; to the point where there occasionally seems too much. Dien Chan is a perfect method by which to regain control of your health and avoid taking too many prescription medicines for common disorders. While you are studying the Dien  Chan method, you should carefully observe your own body on a daily basis and learn to recognise how you feel. We recommend you share massages with your family and friends as well as with your patients. This will help them to get the most out of facial stimulation. The Dien  Chan method is easy-tofollow and an invitation to help the community. Sharing is our way of nourishing a natural need to participate in the happiness of others.

Many of these massages are also used in Tai Chi and other oriental techniques but Dien Chan gives meaning to those massages by explaining their actions and effects based on reflex sketches. The experience of professor Bùi Quốc Châu’s students, patients and all students has helped him to present them in a logical order.


1. Heat your hands by rubbing them together for several seconds and then place them over your eyes. This clarifies the vision and works on your ovaries and testicles. 2. With your two middle fingers, massage your face in circular movements from the tip of your nose towards your eyebrows and around the eyes. Then tap your skin with your hands in the same way as when massaging. This corresponds to a massage in the vagina. Other benefits include treating visual problems, treating impotence and prolapsed uterus, and preventing rhinitis and sinusitis.

4. Place your palm on your face with your forefinger under your nose (pointing your thumb upward) and give a horizontal massage. This warms your body and massages your internal organs. It stimulates your endocrine, digestive and reproductive systems.

3. Massage your face with your palms in circular movements from the chin to the forehead but without touching your nose. This warms and relaxes your body. It is good for the skin and treats fatigue.


5. With your fingers from both hands rub your face from the tip of your nose towards your hairline. You should always finish the massage on the top part of your face to prevent erection problems. It corresponds to a massage along your backbone and legs. It is beneficial to your reproductive system. 6. Strongly massage your forehead in a horizontal direction, first with your right hand and then with the left. This corresponds to a massage of your back and internal organs. It works on wrinkles, relaxes your nervous system and stimulates your brain and memory.

Dien Chan protocols

zones Dien Chan reflex-drainage

The six zones protocol is a Dien  Chan massage based on the manual lymphatic drainage.
 We like to call it the reflex-drainage protocol but Pr. Bùi Quốc Châu always prefers easier terminology to remember. This protocol is extremely […] .


Reflex-drainage

The lymphatic system is responsible for eliminating toxins and maintaining the immune system. The lymphatic circulation is linked to blood circulation. However – unlike blood circulation – the lymph only moves in one direction: from organs to the heart. The lymphatic system works as a cleansing and purifying machine and protects and defends the body. Its effect is noticeable on the skin because it activates circulation and improves microcirculation by preventing liquid retention. The lymph is a milky liquid, rich in white blood cells that work against infection. It circulates through a network of conduits and finally reaches the bloodstream. It releases oxygen and nutrients and enables residual metabolic activity.

6: Reflex-drainage • p.68

It is important to understand that this protocol is inspired by and designed to follow the steps of manual lymphatic drainage. But, instead of touching the body, you are working on the face, i.e., on the reflex of the body in the face. The contraindications of manual lymph drainage are thus avoided.


Most reflex therapies improve irrigation and increase the amount of oxygen and nutrients delivered to the area treated.

The six-zones massage Good results have been obtained when giving this massage on the patient’s face. Reflex-drainage is based on the extremities reflex diagram (red man on the face) and consists of six steps. The lymph nodes are strategically located along with the lymph vessels.

You can give this massage with your fingers but better results are obtained when using the thick detector (tool n°133) or the smooth sphere of detector n°101 (be careful with non-natural horn spheres that can burn the skin). The reflex-drainage system is very similar to that of natural lymphatic drainage (NLD). It is important to massage in both directions to avoid hyper- or hypotension.

Each reflex zone is massaged about 30 times, twice per day (or up to four times if necessary).

Steps of reflex-drainage

You must begin on the left side (yin) with both hands. If you need to emphasize the effect, apply heat patches along the way and leave them in place for at least two hours.

We now describe reflex-drainage by comparing it with NLD and its location on the reflex diagram [in brackets].

The Dien Chan reflex-drainage follows the path of the cranial nerves and has no contraindications because it is a reflex massage.

1. Massage from the corner of the eye (BQC·point n°330) towards the end of each eyebrow [armpits, neck and arm in the red yang reflex diagram]. 
 Like NLD, the first step consists of opening the lymph nodes. This is the point where the lymph reaches the bloodstream. 
 It corresponds to the left and right internal jugular and left and right subclavian arteries.


Dien Chan formulæ

The catalogue of BQC ·points effects extends with time thanks to the increasing quantity of Dien Chan therapists that confirm these particularities. To read those treatments, use two fingers to enlarge the image. When the two lines of the formula are align on the left it means that it is only one; if they are centered that means they are two proposals for the same pathology.

hen learning these massages, follow the instructions and recommendations as written. The order of steps is important in emphasizing a yin or yang effect. For a yang effect, stimulate the points in an upward direction from the bottom of the face to the top. For a yin effect, to calm and refresh, do the opposite. Convert BQC·points into zones and use the rollers and balls if you find it difficult to work with the detector or if the patient is suffering too much pain.

Dien Chan treatments diagrams The following treatments or formulas are for common disorders. Do not attempt to cure serious illnesses with Dien  Chan alone. In case of emergency, either refer the patient to a doctor or notify the emergency services. Nonetheless, while waiting to be attended by a doctor or emergency services, Dien  Chan therapy can help the patient and prevent the condition from getting worse. You can treat many of the multireflexology.com

disorders mentioned in this guide by simply pressing on and stimulating the BQC·points in each formula. Practicing Dien Chan is simple and there are many ways of doing it. Dien Chan is a living and interactive technique but you need to choose the right way to use it. First of all, you should ask the patient what his ailment is, check mobility constraints, and observe which movements cause pain. In the case of internal pain, you must also determine the degree of discomfort involved. A simple technique is to ask the patient for an assessment of the improvement on a “1 to 10” scale, with “10” like disappearance of the pain. Any information pertaining to a medical diagnosis is helpful. After clarifying the patient’s condition, you can start treatment by explaining the type of reflexological stimulation you intend to use. It is important to ask the patient to let you know what he feels on a constant basis. This information is essential if you are to adapt the reflexology massages to suit the patient, who may be more or less sensitive to the tools. A slight pain in a specific zone indicates that you are working in a reactive reflex zone, and this is a positive sign.


11: Dien Chan treatments • p.73

However, you must adjust the pressure exerted to avoid damaging the skin or causing extreme pain, and therefore blocking the stimulus, as that would produce the opposite result to the one you want.
 A dialogue with the patient will confirm whether or not you are making the correct decisions. As a general rule, you should base reflex diagrams on the face. This helps you to improve on a diagnosis, check the response and complete any information given by the patient. After having detected the zone where the response is a bearable pain, you can stimulate that same zone for about one minute. You must ask the patient to judge the improvement on a scale of 1 to 10 to determine if the severity has changed. From this dialogue with the patient, you will gain important knowledge and feedback.

Your dialogue with the patient provides valuable insight For example, a pain reduction of approximately 30% (i.e., the patient tells you that the result is approximately a 7-point improvement on the multireflexology.com

scale) indicates that you should continue stimulating the same zone for about one more minute. After that time, you should ask once again whether or not the pain has decreased. If yes, then you should continue treating that zone until the patient indicates you have achieved a significant improvement. For example, if the patient indicates at the start of treatment that the pain is important, you continue treatment until he or she indicates the improvement is 80% (a 8-point on the scale), this is considered a significant improvement, and is the time to stop the treatment. Overstimulating a reflex zone can often produce the opposite effect to that desired; it may even intensify the pain. If there is no improvement (or very low ±3-point on the scale), you must leave that zone and seek out an alternative reflexion of this ailment in another diagram. However, if you got results in the first zone, you can try another tool. The success of a Dien  Chan treatment lies in the art of being able to combine diagrams and tool stimulation techniques. You will learn from experience that this diagram-tool combination : aisl l e l p m a s a is based on observation and dialogue T h i scontinuous ble in a l i a v a e r a formulæ ook.

with the patient. The patient’s response is key to letting you know if you are using the correct combination for relieving the pain. Dien Chan will improve as the therapist gains in knowledge and experience. The use of reflex diagrams lets you stimulate the reflex zone of the ailment. However, pain does not always reveal itself in the pain zone or organ of origin. It may be a remote sign of the disorder. Among the most complex cases, the therapist who combines his knowledge of eastern and western medicine will have more resources for an accurate diagnosis and, therefore, be able to offer better treatment. For example, a patient with particular pain on the inner side of the knee was at first treated on the knee reflex zones of all the reflex diagrams but without success. Professor Bùi Quốc Châu relied on his knowledge of Chinese traditional medicine and acupuncture and recalled that the spleen meridian goes across that particular zone (inner side of the knee). This information allowed him to stimulate the spleen zone in the patient’s face (viscera diagram). The patient confirmed he felt better immediately.

Determination of the seriousness of an ailment depends on active BQC·points, reflex diagrams, intensity of points and reflex sensitivity. Exceptionally, there may be only small number of active BQC·points on the face or body. You could also find that, at first, there is no synchrony between the ailment and its reflex, although this may appear later. The order of stimulation of the points does not have a significant impact on the results obtained and it is not necessary to follow every single step. In order to improve the effectiveness of a BQC·point formula, it is best to follow either a yin or a yang order, […]

Guidance During the Dien  Chan course, the Chan’formula concept, is introduced to students who are no longer beginners. The concept involves lists and combinations of BQC·points used in treatment and diagnosis. These points are based both on traditional Chinese medicine and knowledge of Western physiology and are used in conjunction with the stimulation of other points or areas, being developed on an individual basis.

Faceasit is available into four languages and three versions. For more information – including all the formula diagrams in landscape format – refer to www.faceasit.com.

O ur new interactive application Faceasit™ proposes a system of lines to locate the points. The latter system is more closely linked to the anatomy of the face. Based on our experience of practicing and teaching the Multireflexology - Dien  Chan method, we have corrected a number of details and made it easier to learn. The modern system can be used on devices such as the iPad. Pages of co-ordinates are no longer needed, as it is the computer that calculates the exact location of each BQC·point and builds the formulas based on the anatomy and symptoms of the patient.

he International school of Multireflexology Dien  Chan (EiMDC), organizes training courses every year in various countries and languages, which are imparted by qualified teachers. Our courses are intended for people who are worried about their health and want to heal themselves. Dien Chan is a form of complementary therapy and a method of diagnosis and treatment for the use of health professionals. It is also a means of adding a therapeutic dimension to beauty treatments. We call this new technique Chan’beauté. The word “chan” in Vietnamese means treatment and diagnosis at the same time and “beauté” is French for beauty.

ALEXIS CARREL

Man, The Unknown (1935) In 1935, Carrel published a book titled —L'Homme, cet inconnu— (Man, The Unknown), which became a best-seller. The book discussed “the nature of society in light of discoveries in biology, physics, and medicine”. It contained his own social prescriptions, advocating, in part, that mankind could better itself by following the guidance of an elite group of intellectuals, and by implementing a regime of enforced eugenics. Carrel claimed the existence of a “hereditary biological aristocracy” and argued that “deviant” human types should be suppressed using techniques similar to those later employed by the Nazis.

BETEL LEAF

Betel leaf is mostly consumed in Asia and cultivated in most of South and Southeast Asia. Since it is a creeper, it needs a compatible tree or a long pole for support. The betel (Piper betle) is the leaf of a vine belonging to the Piperaceæ family, which includes pepper and kava. It is valued both as a mild stimulant and for its medicinal properties. The betel plant is an evergreen and perennial creeper, with glossy heartshaped leaves and white catkin. The betel plant originated from South and South East Asia.

Chapter 1 - Introduction


CORIANDER

Coriander (Coriandrum sativum), also known as cilantro, Chinese parsley or dhania, is an annual herb in the family Apiaceae. Coriander is native to regions spanning from southern Europe and North Africa to southwestern Asia. It is a soft, hairless plant growing to 50 cm (20 in) tall. The leaves are variable in shape, broadly lobed at the base of the plant, and slender and feathery higher on the flowering stems. The flowers are borne in small umbels, white or very pale pink, asymmetrical, with the petals pointing away from the centre of the umbel longer (5–6  mm) than those pointing towards it (only 1– 3 mm long). The fruit is a globular, dry schizocarp 3–5 mm (0.12– 0.20 in) in diameter. Cilantro, the frilly, verdant leaves of the coriander plant, tends to evoke Shakespearean-level passions. For everyone who can't get enough of its bright, insouciant flavor, there's a naysayer who accuses it of tasting like soap. This pungent herb is so polarizing, in fact, that we're quite sure it's been listed under "irreconcilable differences" in more than one divorce suit. Even the name can be confusing: Elsewhere in the English-speaking world, cilantro is known as fresh coriander, not to be confused with the plant's astringent seeds, a spice in their own right.

ENDONASAL REFLEXOTHERAPY

Bonnier, Otolaryngologist of recognized prestige, was the first doctor who raised the possibility of a global representation of the body to level of the nasal zones. In 1911, he announced his works. The nasopunture consists of stimulating points on the surface of the nose with the aim to clear the respiratory tract. Quite the same approach as facial reflexology but the stimulation is with soft to hard thin steel sticks which are gently inserted the nose. The stimulations are usually very short and for this reason it is a complement to other therapies. Términos del glosario relacionados Arrastrar términos relacionados aquí

I CHING

The I  Ching, Yijing or I  King (in traditional Chinese: 易經; in simplify Chinese: 易经; in pinyin: yì  jīng) is an oracular Chinese book. The I Ching and its hexagrams were thought to pre-date recorded history, and based on traditional Chinese accounts, its origins trace back to the 3rd to the 2nd millennium BC. Modern scholarship suggests that the earliest layers of the text may date from the end of the 2nd millennium BC, but place doubts on the mythological aspects in the traditional accounts. Some consider the I  Ching the oldest extant book of divination, dating from 1000 BC and before. Términos del glosario relacionados Arrastrar términos relacionados aquí

IRIDOLOGY

Iridology (also known as iridodiagnosis or iridiagnosis is an alternative medicine technique whose proponents claim that patterns, colors, and other characteristics of the iris can be examined to determine information about a patient's systemic health. Practitioners match their observations to iris charts, which divide the iris into zones that correspond to specific parts of the human body. Iridologists see the eyes as “windows” into the body's state of health. Términos del glosario relacionados Arrastrar términos relacionados aquí

PARÆSTHESIA

Is a sensation of tickling, tingling, burning, pricking, or numbness of a person's skin with no apparent long-term physical effect. It is more generally known as the feeling of “pins and needles” or of a limb “falling asleep”. The manifestation of paresthesia may be transient or chronic. Paresthesias of the hands and feet are common, transient symptoms of the related conditions of hyperventilation syndrome, often open mouth, and panic attacks. Other common examples occur when sustained pressure has been applied over a nerve, inhibiting/stimulating its function.

TONUS

Physical disorders can result in abnormally low (hypotonia) or high (hypertonia) muscle tone. Hypotonia is seen in lower motor neuron disease like poliomyelitis. Hypotonia can present clinically as muscle flaccidity, where the limbs appear floppy, stretch reflex responses are decreased, and the limb’s resistance to passive movement is also decreased.

Chapter 1 - Introduction


YANG TOOLS

The multireflex tools produce yin and yang stimulations. They help to activate the microcirculation of blood and lymph in the areas treated and activate the selfregulation process. When we stimulate a reflex area on the face related to an organ or a limb, we are communicating with the brain. There is no direct relation between the area or the reflexology point and the limb or the brain. We believe that our brain has the capacity to reactivate the flow of energy (the Qi) and that using reflexology serves to stimulate this process. The tools are also used directly on the body, giving fast relief from pain, offering in-depth treatment and improving microcirculation. Tools that help to revitalize, heat, channel and dry produce effects that are considered yang. They are ergonomic and adapt perfectly to the curves of both face and body. Their spiked balls, hand-carved in natural horn, produce immediate results without damaging the skin or causing allergies. The detectors and brushes also create yang effects, whereas the rakes produce very relaxing effects. Chan’beauté uses yang tools to remodel, mobilize body fluids and tone the skin. They are used to treat complaints that involve cold. Most Chan’beauté treatments begin with stimulation using a yang tool to achieve deeper, longer-lasting effects. Here, a detail of the multireflex-yang tool nº410. Each tool’s number followed by .multireflex.com let you access to its specific file. (e.i.: 410.multireflex.com) High quality and handmade using sustainable methods, they produce fast, complementary results for both health practitioners and natural beauty specialists.

Yin tools are used to calm, dissipate, cool, hydrate and relax. We tend to use tools with yin effects when irrigation and drainage of the affected body part are required to mobilize body fluids, preventing stagnation or dryness. In the case of hypersensitivity, we recommend starting with yin stimulation. Whenever possible, local combined with facial work produces the most intensive and lasting results. Experience and ongoing study allow the therapist more easily to identify the yin or yang needs of a disorder. If there is any doubt, the body knows best; the sensation considered most pleasant is decisive in choosing which end of the tool to use. Here, a detail of the multireflex-yang tool nº206.
