A. Raymond Johnson (shiatsu therapist) and Billy Janes (acupuncturist) take you on a DIY journey through the body and how our approach to healing is shaped by the stories we tell in our culture, to ourselves and each other.
The Stomach channel is the next stop on our journey through the body, in this episode we talk about digestion from the start of the cycle, as well as how our emotions and desires play into physical and metaphoric appetites and digestion.
Let's talk about our bowel movements! And other issues related to the Large Intestine, like letting go and processing grief. The words 'poop' 'stool' and 'sh*t' get used a lot in this episode, and while we have a sense of humor about it, we avoid being gratuitous or excessively gross. Everybody poops!
Raymond & Billy talk about how they became healers, what histories & theories inspire their work, and give a brief tour on how the meridians of the body operate. Then we start off the healer's journey with the Lung and information on breathing, metabolizing grief, herb friends, meridian location (kiss your bicep!) & much more.
