The Concepts

November 24, 2007

We’ve had hours of discussion about the project, which I’m going to try and condense, and represent here. We identified three major, connected concepts (all relating the acupuncture process in some way) that we wanted to emphasize with our project:

* Balance and Counterbalance – the idea that a healthy body is a balanced one, with the forces of yin and yang acting in harmony.

* The Emotional Body – the notion that every organ has a specific emotional connection and effect (to put it too simply – a troubled liver might explain a bad temperament, for instance).

*Action at a Distance – doing something in one place (like placing an acupuncture needle on a big toe) and having it effect something else (like your stomach)
