The origins of Dejia Harmonny
Our story began thousands of years ago in the ancient middle kingdom of Huaxia with one of the most important cultural heroes in mythology, FuXi.
Recognized as the god of fishing, hunting and marriage, FuXi established the founding principles of Chinese philosophy—harmony between nature and humanity, and between body and mind. In fact, the foundation of Eastern medicine was built upon these ancient ideals.
The earliest known Eastern medical literature, written 2,500 years ago, is the Yellow Emperor’s Canon of Medicine. Even at that time, a complex system of Eastern medical theories and practices were already established. In the West, many are aware of the concepts of Yin/Yang and the Five Elements—wood, fire, earth, metal and water—both of which were discussed in this book.
Ancient Eastern medicine practitioners also developed the theories of “meridian” and “Zang-Fu.” They noted that, “Meridians decide life and death, touch many diseases and must not be obstructed. The Zang-Fu system is comprised of a “five organ system, alive when strong, fatal when weak.”
Many of the Canon’s theories have withstood the test of time—and even modern medicine still wrestles with some of the very same principles. Consider this quote from the book: “Superior doctors prevent disease; mediocre doctors treat disease before evident, and only inferior doctors treat the full-blown disease.”
These wellness pioneers already valued prevention over treatment and they were not alone.
Built upon this philosophy, Dejia Harmony advocates for the fusion of ancient Eastern medical wisdom and modern Western medical science. We believe that wellness is a state of balance and harmony.
Rather than narrowly addressing symptoms we uncover the root causes of wellness and see you as a whole person. Our proprietary system assesses and quantifies your health status based on your meridians, Zang-Fu and constitution before we recommend a customized plan to enhance and expand your personal well-being. Dejia Harmony has created a system to guide you step-by-step along your journey to optimal well-being.
We believe the mind and body are an intricately connected and integrated system. We employ all-natural, therapeutic, preventative experiences and products that advance wellness rather than attempting to mend an issue only after there is a problem. Our approach is evidence-based and results-driven to measurably improve signs and indicators for health and wellness.
Combined with natural, food-based remedies, targeted meridians, and Zang-Fu organ exercises—along with additional supportive measures—our systematic and personalized approach helps individuals maintain a healthy lifestyle over the long term. To help people embrace the Harmony Way of Life, we have infused our one-of-a-kind offerings into the guest experience at our wellness destination, Spa Minerale at Lansdowne Resort.

According to the World Health Science Organization (WHSO), a non-profit dedicated to the fusion of Eastern and Western health principles and practices, Dejia Harmony is not merely westernizing an eastern concept, but creating a high level of integration of the two and emphasizing the existing parallels between traditional and modern wellness. This fusion goes beyond a new approach to health science—it proactively unifies natural and social sciences as well as technology and humanity.
