Dien Chan Zone®comes from the root of Dien Chan, a reflexology that implies the principle that by stimulating one part of the body, another is rebalanced. More precisely, when the skin, as a major sense organ, is stimulated, according to established maps that reflect all the organs of the body, the central and peripheral nervous system, it responds to reach the target organ or area.
Dien Chan or “Vietnamese facial reflexology” is one of the most recent techniques and today it is the simplest and most effective because:
It is performed in one area, the face, where all five sense organs are present.
It allows anyone to work independently at any time and to resolve different disharmonies, every day and as often as they wish.
The body signals a problem to us by means of pain or discomfort. Such a symptom indicates an energy block. Having the possibility of being able to stimulate these areas autonomously throughout the day, it is possible to regulate and re-harmonize the flow of energy by removing this disharmony.
FROM VIETNAM TO THE WEST
The Vietnamese have always been used to treating their faces to solve health problems. Facial massage, in fact, remains a popular aspect of their current culture.
Starting from this local behavior and combining his passion for acupuncture, Professor Chau was able to study the way in which internal organs are connected to the face and create reflex maps.
THE DIEN CHAN TREATMENT IN VIETNAM
Born with the use of needles, it was subsequently performed using tools designed by Professor Chau
It is performed by working on fixed points
The tools are used invasively on the face, head and body
The execution mode is fast
The recipient is seated in front of the operator
The interested parts are stimulated through a treatment with roulettes or heated through moxibustion
After the points are pressed, slow-release patches are applied to prolong the stimulation
Each treatment lasts an average of 10 minutes
The advice on the treatment to be performed independently is not shared as everyone has their own way of treating themselves through the face
There is no “energy contact” between the recipient and the operator
Watches and metals are worn during the treatment
Mobile phones are allowed during treatment
Stimulation of the points is very painful, at the limit of one’s resistance
The technique thus performed reflects the Vietnamese approach to treatment which contemplates pain as the only means to achieve healing.
In the East, the holistic attitude towards health is extremely interesting and recalls our ancient traditions that we have lost in the name of official medicine. However, we are recently recovering such therapies as a “complementary” means of treatment. Our technique is one of them.
We must recognize that in the East some therapies are performed in a much more invasive way than is normal in the West. To recover them and make them usable, we must translate them to meet the needs of the population with whom we wish to share them.
We have understood that if the body experiences pain it raises a defensive barrier that further limits the harmonic flow of energy. For this reason, the Vietnamese method cannot be applied in the Western world.
Beatrice Moricoli’s mission was precisely this: to create a completely new technique that would maintain its roots by adapting to Western culture. The result is an unchanged but decoded technique, adapted and renamed Dien Chan Zone®.
The Vietnamese are great masters of the technique performed in this way and at the same time suitable to receive it in this way. In fact, they have a completely different Eastern perspective on healing, that is, they associate healing with the experience of pain.
The technique is perfect for them performed this way and only they are able to perform it with such precision. Westerners, or Easterners born in the West, cannot perform it in the same way, nor receive it with such brevity and discomfort.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Dien Chan restores the proper flow of energy in the body. The body signals a problem to us by means of pain or discomfort. Such a symptom indicates an energy block.
An energy block means that there is a difficulty in the circulation of the energy itself along the vital flow that feeds our body. It is never synonymous with disease, but only an important demand for energy (blood, lymphatic, nervous, respiratory, digestive, sexual and / or purely energetic circulation) by one or more organs or systems.
By having the ability to independently stimulate these affected areas throughout the day, we can regulate and encourage the movement of global energies in the body with particular attention to the area that signaled the symptom.
HOW TO USE?
This technique is suitable for treating symptoms that occur in an acute, chronic or preventive form.
In the first case we will work in first aid mode with a few minutes treatment to reduce the pain.
For chronic situations we will move on to a 30 to 60 minute treatment in which the chosen system will be worked on until we are able to get some answers. Every time a symptom is worked on, we intervene to act on the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual condition of the recipient in relation to the chosen organ.
In the case of prevention, we focus on the most delicate apparatus that implements a reaction with respect to a food, such as an allergy or an intolerance. Once we have identified the affected system, we work to possibly alter the balance of our immune system.
In the East, the holistic attitude towards health is extremely interesting and reminds us of our ancient traditions that we have lost in the name of official medicine. However, we are recently catching up with such therapies as a “complementary” means of treatment. Our technique is one of them.
This has been our job. Beatrice’s mission, the duty of the Academy, our history: to find the correct language and order so that this technique was not lost or wasted in the West. It was an attempt to give it back to everyone, unchanged but decoded, adapted and renamed Dien Chan Zone®.
COMPLEMENTS TO THE TECHNIQUE
While always respecting the origin and our training, the teaching at our Academy has evolved to include important additions, including:
Simplified massage for specific areas
Applied principles of traditional Chinese medicine in the treatment of the face and body
The introduction and development of the Aesthetic treatment also suitable for working on children, the elderly and people with delicate or particularly sensitive skin
It is performed using the tools designed by Professor Chau and the hands
The affected area is worked to look for the sensitive point that identifies the energy block
The tools are used on the face, head and body using adequate pressure, pleasant but effective
The recipient is normally lying on a bed and sitting only in case of first aid
The treatment can be quick for first aid or last from 30 to 60 minutes maximum for a therapeutic intervention
The zones can be worked with the hands, heated with moxibustion or stimulated with roulettes
After the treatment of the affected areas and sensitive points, slow-release patches can be applied to prolong the stimulation
The “energetic contact” between the recipient and the operator is present throughout the treatment
All watches and metals are removed for the duration of the treatment
WHEN USING IT
Dien Chan Zone® is a technique originating from Vietnam, adapted and westernized in Italy.
Starting from the symptom, a targeted treatment is developed to rebalance and prevent disharmony of all kinds. It can be used both alone and as a complement to allopathic measures.
This technique is indicated for any type of disharmony, recent or chronic.
Starting from the symptom, an ad hoc treatment is created for each situation.
In the case of prevention, we focus on the most delicate apparatus that implements a reaction to a food, such as an allergy or intolerance. Once the affected system has been identified, we work to possibly restore the balance of our immune system.
Dien Chan Zone® is a unique technique of its kind. It offers extraordinary, sometimes surprising and often immediate results for different types of disharmonies in the body. It originated in distant Vietnam in 1980, after about five years of study and applications by its creator, Professor Bui Quoc Chau and a group of acupuncturists. It is the most recent reflexology and does not incorporate any oriental technique related to the face.
In its full application, Dien Chan Zone® is a multi-reflexology. This means that reflexologists trained in this method can work on any part of the body from the fingers, hands to the legs, arms and back. AIRFI teaches various modalities for the intervention in different parts of the body during the advanced course.
To date, our Academy, based in Milan, Italy, has trained thousands of Practitioners, Reflexologists and Teachers who work in Italy and abroad. With great satisfaction, in 2016 we held our first fair outside our homeland, in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. This was followed by other international fairs.
