Dien Chan protocol

Muscular pain

Step 1

Local work

On the affected area

1 Massage the affected area to activate the blood and lymphatic microcirculation. Ideally, the zone will be stimulated with a tool that either has a stimulating (yang) or a dispersant (yin) effect according to the most comfortable feeling for the patient.

Step 2


Projection on the face

2 First mentally project the different diagrams of Dien Chan on the face to identify which reflex zones need stimulating. Then visualise the diagram of the body (red man) on the face and stimulate the relevant reflex zone using the little hammer.

Step 3


Reflexology work

3 Use the tool best suited to the surface to be worked on and within the patient’s comfort zone. This work activates the vital energy (Qi) and starts the process of self-regulation. The stimulation quickly unblocks the «energetic knots» thanks to the proximity to the central nervous system.

Step 4


Precise stimulation

4 The diagram of the organs projected on the face allows us to use TCM knowledge which tells us that to treat joint pain, we need to stimulate the liver as it governs tendons and ligaments and that the earth element helps us to relief muscular pain. Because muscular toning helps alleviate joint overload, we stimulate the spleen (earth element) as it nourishes blood and governs muscles. The treatment is finished by stimulating the kidneys that govern bones, which in turn strengthens the skeleton.

Step 5



5 To finish, stimulate fixed point 38 (large intestine) for its lubrication and anti-inflammatory effect. Then stimulate point 37 (reflex for the spleen) to balance the circulation of blood in the large muscles. This avoids cramps and improves movement in the affected zone.

The action of Dien Chan

In Dien Chan we work by combining the maps projected on the face with the activation of the zones (with a yin or yang tool) and the stimulation of the fixed points with a detector. It is important to have a sound knowledge of the maps and to learn how to stimulate the points for best results. The beginner should focus on patterns of reflection so that the map of points loses its complexity.
