The beauty of life lies in the uncertainties and surprises. Becoming Biotherapist is one of the best!
Being a yoga teacher for 10 years, mainly working with cancer patients, and also people from all walks of life suffering in different dimensions, healing became my interest and drive of learning.
I came to know a little bit about Biotherapy and Ivan a few years ago when Ivan came to Hong Kong Cancer Fund to work with our cancer patients. In early 2018, the Module A course of Biotherapy was offered in Hong Kong and thanks to Mona that I had a chance to take the course. It was an eye opening experience to understand about disease, health and life in a much deeper and holistic level. I realised that Biotherapy is not the kind of energy healing we know in a general sense, it is a medical/clinical treatment for physical diseases using natural bioenergy that everyone has. It is like a revolutionary discovery about a function that I didn’t know about my body. And the question is how much more we don’t know about ourselves and how much more we could learn about life and living?!
I really appreciate the enthusiasm and effort from Ivan to make the learning of this abundant and in-depth knowledge in a very systematical and logical way that is easy to understand and joyful to learn. And the support from Biotherapy Asia team is truly wonderful.
Later I joined Module B when it is available in Hong Kong. It taps into the more advanced science and technology aspects and skills of Biotherapy and healing. We learned about how to conduct distant therapy, and medical psychology of group therapy, the ethics and practices of becoming a Biotherapist, and so much more. Again, it opens a different dimension of understanding of how life and this universe works and makes me more curious to explore and experience it’s possibilities.
To me, the whole system of Biotherapy is a reflection of humanity in a practical, but at the same time, artistic way. And the effectiveness of the healing is not only happening on the physical body, it is in the process of the experience of Biotherapy as well, which is weaved deeply into the fabrication of life itself. Ivan has been insisting the therapy shall always be donation based. It is not to join the fashion of charity work (even though charity work is a great part of the therapy work), but it is to allow people to do what they need to do and what they are able to do. And more importantly, it is to take away the root cause of the major misunderstanding today in the society – that everything could came in a price – yet, we all know that health and life can not.
Learning about the therapy is the first step, and becoming a therapist requires a lot more – to learn pathology, anatomy, medical psychology, and everything about life and living. At the beginning, no matter how much I learned, I didn’t feel confident to actually start conducting the therapy. But Ivan and the experienced therapist team have always been very encouraging and supporting to let me practice, and I learned so much more through practicing and mistakes. Later I realised that what I need is not confidence, what I need is to keep learning and practicing. The logic and the movement of the therapy slowly becomes muscle memory in my body. And it becomes a journey of continuous learning and exploring, which is fascinating.
And I have to say that the great reward of being a therapist is hearing the results from the ones being treated – the pain is reduced or gone, can do or eat things they can not touch before, the skin is not irritating any more, the blood count is back to normal, the chemo is easier to cope with, or even to experience a normal day that everyone else is experiencing, but he/she could not because of the condition. It makes a difference in people’s daily life, and if we like to talk about the “positive influence to the society”, this would be a great way to do it.
I am truly grateful to Ivan for sharing the knowledge of Biotherapy and guiding me on the way of learning and growing to be a Biotherapist. It is an honour and blessing. A heart felt thank you is not enough to express my gratitude. I will express it in my practice and work. ? Vivian Guan
