What is Dan Tian?

“Dan Tian” is a beautiful term from the 5000-year-old Chinese Qigong and Medical traditions which perfectly embodies the philosophy of our clinic.

In Chinese, the words “Dan Tian” literally means “Field of Medicine” or “Field of Elixir”. It refers to the fact that we all have the ability to create healing and medicine from within. We can cultivate our internal "field of medicine" the way a gardener tends to his/her garden. A wonderful reminder! Our bodies have powerful innate self-healing abilities, far more intelligent and elegant than any doctor’s prescribed medicine. Health is our natural state! Frequently, we find the best healing results when we simply remove the obstacles to healing and allow wellness to naturally blossom and thrive!

Anatomically, “Dan Tian” is also the Chinese name of major energy centers in the core of the body, what is know as “Chakras” in Yoga. These energy centers are thought to be major reservoirs of the body’s healing energy, and so they are strongly emphasized in traditional self-care practices like Qigong breathing meditation, Tai Chi, and Martial Arts.
