The “Wu Xin An Mo” is known as the massage of the five emotions that is a therapeutic technique based on the principles of traditional Chinese medicine. Use massage as a means or resource to influence human emotions throughout the body, by manipulating muscles, tendons, joints and skin to generate responses of activation, drainage and harmonization of emotions in your body.
It consists of five techniques grouped into one. Each of these techniques is related to each of the five Chinese elements or five energies of the Chinese tradition. In addition to the principle of body memory, which says that the body (muscles, tendons, organs, and systems) can keep our emotional experiences being recorded in the form of sensations and these, in turn, will produce changes or activations in biochemical processes of the body; so the five energies to which we refer (water, wood, fire, earth, and metal) are a way of grouping the different aspects of nature, society, body, and human behaviour.
To broaden this concept, this figure shows the relationship between the five elements and human psycho-emotionality.
