China zhì yù
Japan chi yu

治癒 is the Chinese, Japanese Kanji, and old Korean Hanja for cure, healing, and/or recovery.

Heal / Healing

Japan iya su
Heal / Healing

癒す is the common word for heal or healing in Japanese.

癒す can also mean to cure.

Healing Hands

Japan iyashi no te
Healing Hands

This can be translated as "healing hands" in Japanese.

The first two characters mean healing, to heal, to cure, soothing, therapy, comfort, and solace.
The third character is a possessive particle that connects the ideas.
The last Kanji means hand or hands.

Note: Because this selection contains some special Japanese Hiragana characters, it should be written by a Japanese calligrapher.


China zhēn liáo fǎ
Japan hari ryou hou

針療法 is one of two ways to write acupuncture in Chinese and Japanese.

The first character means "needle" or "pin." The second character means "to treat" or "to cure." The last character means "method" or "way."

This is the only reasonable selection if your audience is Japanese. This is the formal way to express acupuncture in Chinese, so this version is universal in most of Asia (the best all around choice in most cases).

Healing Hands

China miào shǒu huí chūn
Healing Hands

This can be translated as "healing hands."

The first two characters are used to describe a doctor or medical professional who has admirable skill in curing disease. Literally: Wonderful or skilled hands.

The last two characters mean "Springing back to life."

Altogether, it suggests that these skilled hands can cure whatever ails you and bring you back to life. This is a great honor to bestow on your doctor or other healthcare professional that has helped you.

All of our calligraphy wall scrolls are handmade.

When the calligrapher finishes creating your artwork, it is taken to my art mounting workshop in Beijing where a wall scroll is made by hand from a combination of silk, rice paper, and wood.
After we create your wall scroll, it takes at least two weeks for air mail delivery from Beijing to you.

Allow a few weeks for delivery. Rush service speeds it up by a week or two for $10!

When you select your calligraphy, you'll be taken to another page where you can choose various custom options.

A professional Chinese Calligrapher

Professional calligraphers are getting to be hard to find these days.
Instead of drawing characters by hand, the new generation in China merely type roman letters into their computer keyboards and pick the character that they want from a list that pops up.

There is some fear that true Chinese calligraphy may become a lost art in the coming years. Many art institutes in China are now promoting calligraphy programs in hopes of keeping this unique form of art alive.

Trying to learn Chinese calligrapher - a futile effort

Even with the teachings of a top-ranked calligrapher in China, my calligraphy will never be good enough to sell. I will leave that to the experts.

A high-ranked Chinese master calligrapher that I met in Zhongwei

The same calligrapher who gave me those lessons also attracted a crowd of thousands and a TV crew as he created characters over 6-feet high. He happens to be ranked as one of the top 100 calligraphers in all of China. He is also one of very few that would actually attempt such a feat.
