The major difference between Western & Eastern approaches come from their specific foundations. In the East the human body is seen as part of a whole system (the planet) and cannot be separated from its environment. The body itself is a representation of nature. ie: Just as we treat nature, we must treat the body. During a drought we nourish and water the soil for our crops, we must nourish the yin & blood for our bodies.
