In the Yellow Emperor's book (acupuncture oldest book) we can read constant references to what they call mother/son relationship. But it is not well explained, how is it actually applied. We have being trying to fit it in many ways like the Theory of the 5 Elements, but it is clear what does not match.

Why did the ancient shamans would called Mother/Son relationship? We immediately think that the mother helps the son at all times, cherishing and protecting. But in ancient times things were a little different and mothers often use their children as workers labor. The son was not the king of the house as it is today but the servant, who is asked to do things.

Did they mean that in a pathological relation the Mother abuse her Son so one organ abuse others? This is why we have changed the terms for a better understanding, and call Sadistic/Masochistic relation between the organs.

As a acupuncturist and practitioners, we always tend to think that a particular organ is the reason of the disease. If I have cirrhosis of the liver then I point out my liver as having failed. If I have pulmonary fibrosis I accuse the lung. Or if I have a headache, the problem is in the brain. But what if the organ affected by the symptoms is not the real killer? What about if they are no guilty? Just the relation itself is might to be the pathological. The same that happens in our everyday lives.

So there is no guilt in Natural Acupuncture, the sadistic has a complex (inferiority complex) so he manages to do anything not to confront the funcions where the actual complex resided. In order to avoid this he abuse other organ call the Masochistic to do an extra work. The Masochistic is the one how give the signss of disease as it is overwhelmed. But he also ends up with a complex (insufficient complex).



  • - At the pulse the sadic appears low, crouching, but stress really comes and goes, hides and sticks. It is a false YIN. It really needs to be sedated.
  • - At the pulse the Masoquist appears high, strong and tense, with hard work. But it is exhausted from so much responsibility. It's actually a false YANG. It really needs to be tonificated.




In these acupuncture courses  in India we will treat patients using the Pathological relationships between organs.
