Chinese Massage (中国按摩zhōngguó ànmó)

This afternoon, I attended a free Chinese massage seminar hosted by CCU-MLC. They showed us this video as an introduction. Although I didn’t understand everything they said because they spoke as if they were talking with native Chinese speakers, I believe they were talking about one of the most popular health principles, “Prevention is better than cure.”

People often need massage to ease body pain than in enhancing functions of body parts or aiding relaxation. Although this video doesn’t apply to most individuals, it is important to note that our health and well-being depend on the things we eat and do in accomplishing our daily activities. Thus we need to consider the best health practices wherever we are, like (for employers,) providing a conducive atmosphere, clean and comfortable environment, as well as ergonomic and user-friendly facilities; and (for employees,) encouraging each other to live a healthy lifestyle, avoiding smoking in public places, and regular exercise.

I hope that this simple reminder will help us keep our mind (considering priorities, family, healthy food, etc.) and body healthy and stable.
