Dear Mr. Tsang (The Chief Executive), 

Re: Reflexology commonly known as Foot Message 

The Rwo-Shr Health (Reflexology), which means the “foot message”, is governed by the State Council of the “The People’s Republic of China”. This health care practice is under the control of a specific division of the Health Department. However, the standard for this kind of physical therapy is set by the Labour and Social Welfare department only. In other words, it is governed by layman over the past years in Hong Kong.

 

Generally speaking, a person can work in this field only after getting the approved qualifications in China. The Department of Health in China has set up the standards for being a qualified practitioner. When the person has passed all the exams, he/she can work in a hospital that will be approved by the Government to heal or protect the health of the patients in this practice.

The standards are very important in our field as they define clearly the meanings of the methods of healings and health care in this practice, so that no people can malpractice or misuse it in some other ways.

How does the H.K. Government treat this practice?

Foot Message is a general name of it in H.K., which is not controlled by the H.K. Government and there are no standards for the practice. However, the foot reflexology is widely spread in the foreign countries, the practitioners have their own specific methods to cure person and for health care. For the past 20-30 years, the Eastern and the Western countries began to learn from each other, the Rwo-Shr Health started to become popular in Taiwan. This method was spread from H.K. to China and it was widely used in China. (There are 7,000,000 persons working in this field in China and they have created 12 million RMB in a day.) The Rwo-Shr Health is also widely accepted and adopted by the foreign countries.

The Employees Retraining Board in H.K. has developed many programmes relating to Reflexology, they are specifically designed to teach the unemployed. Our Institute has created many job opportunities and we have got the award of Creative Partnership from them. Our Institute has cooperated with the department of gynecology of the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, we have healed 300 patients. The feedback from the treatment is well recognised with excellent results.

Nowadays the H.K. Government has not yet set up a specific department to control this practice and to standardize the training, exams and certifications, etc. This leads to big differences in standards for practitioners and institutes, resulting in unfairness of treatments to the people of H.K.

I have heard my friend, Mr. Anthony T Y WU at a talk in a National Committee meeting, which is about the Rwo-Shr Health. He is the Chairman of the Hospital Authority of H.K and a member of the National Committee. He supported the work of the Rwo-Shr Health.

Will the H.K. Government support this practice?

I hope the relevant Government Department, like the Civil Authority, the Department of Health or the Hospital Authority of H.K. will contact me, I can provide any information that you may need to support it, set standards for it and legalize the practice in H.K. as it is in China. Finally, I wish you every success in the future.

Rwo Shr Health Versus My Career                

1979 - 2000 From learning to work

(1) Foot Massage prevails in the market nowadays does not aim at healing. Some people soak the feet into the water containing some of the medicine and they call it Foot Bath. Some even help you to trim the finger mail and brush the shoes. It can be regarded as a profession in rendering services. It will not bring bad effect to the health. On the contrary it may help to grow healthily, but it cannot be served as a healing agent.

( Mr. 烏蘭木倫 Vice-president of Xin Hua News Agency Hong Kong received my treatment for the lowering of his blood pressure and 血糖 in cure of his heart disease and 糖尿病 )
 

(2) The Rwo Shr Health Method is different. In addition to Maintaining healthy, it helps to solve the problem of a number of non-contagious phlegmatic diseases. It is high demand for the Rwo-Shr workers. They must be able to diagnose the case with pain or without pain, they must possess the basic knowledge of both oriental and western medical treatment methods, knowing properly the position and nature of the 反射區, whether the client is feeling painful or not. This is a typical element for a health and medical worker to possess.

In the circular No 1 issued by
中國國家衛生部 in 1991, it was affirmed that the Rwo Shr Health Method is a simple, applicable, effective and protective, without side effect method to protect one's health, it is especially efficacious for the middle and old aged and suggested that all levels of the hospital to adapt and promote it. (Ref to the circular of 邯鄲市民政局()市民字 1993)

The Medical Hospital of Canton admits that the theory adapted by the Rwo-Shr Health is based on a scientific theory. (Refer to the article attached at the back) Professor
郝萬山 of Peking Chinese Medicine University, from another angle, also proved that the Rwo-Shr Health is founded on scientific theory. (Refer to the essay attached) Besides, there are quite a number of these talks about the advantages of the Rwo-Shr Health Method. (Refer to the essays of the world biennial Assembly.)
 

( Dr. Chan Hok Yau demonstrated the Rwo- Shr Health Method in the schools.)

Originally I served as the chief editor of 良友之聲 . It happened that our director Rev. Ho Martin S.D.B while in Tai Wan suffered from a heart-attach. He was rushed to 榮總 Hospital to be rescued, but the western medical treatment could not offer much help. We then turned to Dr. 陳茂松 and Rev. 吳若石 for help. Dr. Chan later became my teacher. They used the “按腳“ method to rescue the life of Rev. Ho. Since then Rev. Ho sent me to Tai Wan to learn this method, so that apart from helping him I could help many other people in Hong Kong. Thus I have been in this service for more than twenty years. I enjoy it.

(The Founder President 陳茂雄 , Fr. 吳若石 and Dr. Chan Hok Yau (Formerly named Chan Chong Kon)

As many patients were cured, my interest on the work increased. Later I was sent to teach in Mainland China. Only in Beijing, I taught more than two thousand medical practitioners including Chinese and Western doctors, among them, they were the presidents of the big Research Associations. As time passed, I became their pupil instead because some of them became excellent doctors of Chinese or western medicine. I taught them all that I know about the knowledge and technique of 按腳 but they have not yet applied it to their rich knowledge of eastern and western medical treatments, so that they can share with me the outcome. Certainly they are much stronger than me now. I am glad they do.

(In the second line viewing from the front, counting from the left, 3rd person is 黄敬昭 , 7th is Chairman 楊茗茗 , 8th is Dr. Chan Hok Yau, 9th is Chairman 王鉄城 , 11th is吳若石老師, 12th is Chairman 鄭英吉 )

Chairman楊茗茗 deserved to be specially mentioned. He has been my student but his contribution is very big. With the support of 衛生部 and 勞動部he acquired the professional qualification of Teacher of Foot Reflexology and set up the proper standards. It was indeed a big success. It is a natural thing that the student is more successful than his teacher for the Chinese proverb says The green comes from the blue.

(Graduation of the students in Beijing Hospital 292. The class was organized by Mr. 杭雄文 who later became the chairman. They were also taught by Dr. Chan Hok Yau. Dr. Chan taught in 中國研究院 in the interior of China before, but the present one was a bigger group of students.)

The little success I acquire to-day was due to the guidance given me by my teacher and the assistance rendered me by my friends. Therefore I must thank my teacher 陳茂松 ( The Executive Chairman Of Rwo-Shr Health Institute International)

(Chan Hok Yau and his Teacher 陳茂松 in 中央衛生部,Beijing China )

I wish to thank also my other teachers such as Mr. 陳茂雄 , Rev. 吳若石 , Prefect Lai, Professor 鍾杰 , Mr. 陳明仁 , Mr. 陳宗保 and Rev. Ho Martin.

The Director Rev. Ho Martin sent Chan Hok Yau to Taiwan to learn the Rwo-Shr Health to be able to help the people of Hong Kong. 

Besides, I must thank all the pupils whom I have taught (They became my teachers in the course of time) There are also my best friends such as
田洪鎮教授 , 陳意麟會長 , 郝萬山教授 , 朱奕群医生 , 白榮暉老師 , 張館長 , 劉勝利 , 高軍 and 張榮 etc.

( Christina J. Brown and Chan Hok Yau at the World Congress 94 )

I learned with my patients. Whatever illness they were suffered from I would check and learn from the respective medical books. For this I wish to extend my grateful thanks to each one of them.

( Fr. Josef Eugster and Chairman 鄭英吉 were teaching me how to rub the feet and the hands for the patients.)

This method is adaptable for both oriental and western medical treatments. The new medical association jointly organized by the oriental and western medical practioners regard it as an excellent example of co-operation between the eastern and western medical practioners. I was awarded a First Class Prize from the Country-wise Congress on new medical treatment held in 廣州 .

Recently, I have a new way in looking at the 足部反射區 of the various countries of the world. I tried to explain it in my essay “ 震動世界 ”全息反射構想圖 Gratitude is due to Sr. Susan Koo SPC for the drawing.  28.5.2000 noon Chan Hok Yau

Every foot reflects a whole person, some in the left foot and others in the right foot. I have taught the students of the second group of 按摩科 in 廣州医學院.  They have admitted me as their alumnus too. Besides I have also taught in the 陸軍總院 、北師大 、 中央辦公廳  etc.

(Courses I held in the Central office)

 I was invited as a medical practitioner of Hong Kong by the 衛生局 of 深圳 to 深圳 to enjoy Laichee. The Medical Bureau of Hong Kong also treated me as a medical doctor and asked me to go with them.

(From the left: the 3rd person is Dr. Chan Hok Yau, the 4th is Mrs. 陳馮富珍 , the Director of Medical & Health Dept. Hong Kong, the 5th is professor 欒力 , the former 深圳衛生局局長)

I served in this profession for a long time. Most of the practicians in the Mainland were my students. I have been purposely invited by 衛生部中華預防医學會足部健康法專業委員會 to serve as advisor. This is the highest honour one will achieve in this profession.

The Rwo-Shr Health Method has not been well known in the various countries in the world. In the universities of Singapore, if one wants to learn the Rwo-Shr Health Method can refer to the insurance firms of Austria for payment. It is recognized by Britain, but it can only be carried out by the physicians. It could be reimbursed by the 中國公費医療辦公室.

( The certificate of appointment issued to me by the中華預防医學会學術會務部)

 

Besides, I taught nearly 200 students in Hong Kong, performed social work frequently and went around to give speeches freely.

I taught in the St. James 福群會 (as shown in the photo on the top left ) I went to the Catholic churches and schools to give speeches and served the voluntary organizations, youth centres, aged homes and social centres. So much so I obtained a platinum certificate of award.

 

( Platinum Certificate of award given to our association by the Hong Kong Urban Council. )

97 World CouncilRwo-Shr Health Study Congress was held at Hong Kong at the beginning of March 1997. It was attended by more than 300 representatives from 25 countries. The Hong Kong Tourist Association presented a lion dance free to the gathering. It was a rememberable occasion.

In the last 20 years I have cured thousands of patients, about 50 were of heart troubles ( most of them suffered from 心肌梗塞 plus 心率不齊  etc ), hundreds of them suffering from 神經衰弱, and no sound sleep (including stroke ), another hundreds from 內分泌不調 (including 紅班狼瘡、青春痘 etc.) a few hundred suffering from 免疫系統受損 (including 氣管炎、鼻敏感、some 腫瘤、 some 皮膚病 etc ) a few hundreds suffering from mal-digestion, a few hundreds were weak in 排泄系统 (most of them were weak in kidneys, and suffer from undesirable 大便 ) a few hundreds were not good in the physical exercises organs ( 關節炎、骨科病 ) Tens were weak in 呼吸系统,  Two persons were suffering from cancers in the 鼻咽, ( There were signs of improvement, some of them adopt 西医電療 . It is difficult to match with化療,  for the harm to be done is too big. )

The picture below was taken during the joint study of the Rwo-Shr Health Institute International and the staff of Queen Elizabeth Hospital.

Voluntary 26 members were assigned by our Institute to help the patients in the hospital to relief them from their pains by foot massage.

Mr. Robert J. Wussler, one of the founders of CNN USA went to the famous Massage Hospital in Beijing for complete body massage. Since he is advanced in age ( about 75 ) and has undergone 3 operations previously in 8 months, he must undergo an examination on the heart by Dr. Chan Hok Yau to ensure his fitness. ( This case was recommended by Mr. Lau 清繁, a benefactor of the Headquarters. )

 

He was then undergone a whole-body massage by Dr. 王友仁 who was present when I gave lessons on foot massage in the Foot Massage Hospital in Beijing. We are actually old friends.

On 9. 9. 2005, it happened to be my birthday. Officer 楊茗茗 and some of his assistants celebrated it for me. It was so impressed. ( a bowl of long-lived noodle was specially made. )

In the seminar, I delivered a speech on “反射學研究路向隨想” pointing out the topic that should be discussed, it should serve as a guide to the whole country as well as to the whole world: whether a person 投射 on the two feet or on one foot. Where is the kidney? 湧泉穴 and the kidney in term of anatomy? How to combine the Chinese and the Western method? 投射 half of the body or the whole body? The 7 routes of 傳導? What are the zone to be used for foot massage? Are the foot reflex zones more suitable?  etc.
