    Default Are there healing techniques in your style of martial arts ?

    I know that Tracy Kenpo has a healing component to it as taught by Dr. Ted Sumner. Has healing ever been a part of EP Kenpo? How bout some of the other styles represented on the forum. Are there any healers out there?

    That's an excellent question, Nelson.

    Besides Kenpo, I am involved with Yang style Taiji. In that art, different forms are known to have healing effects on various organs. There is actually a whole art of energetic healing attached to Taiji, which ties in with Traditional Chinese Medicine.

    While I have some familiarity with TCM, I am primarily using homeopathy in my work as a holistic health practitioner. I also practice certain forms of energetic healing that are similar to Eastern methods.

    I recall reading somewhere that Kenpo's mother art Kosho-shorei-ryu includes herbology and other healing methods at an advanced level. Actually, Wikipedia says about its founder James Mitose: "He worked as an herbalist and was known to be an extraordinary healer."
