    Born two years before the invention of daguerreotype and the birth of photography, Thomson first traveled to Asia in where he set up a professional photographic studio. The local culture and the people of Asia fascinated him, and in he made his second trip, this time settling in Hong Kong. Between and , Thomson made extensive trips to Guangdong, Fujian, Beijing, China's. The first stage of labor and birth occurs when you begin to feel regular contractions, which cause the cervix to open (dilate) and soften, shorten and thin (effacement). This allows the baby to move into the birth canal. The first stage is the longest of the three stages.

    Instead, the birth energy flows like a river through a woman’s body to her child. In a child’s early years, the birth energy flow is coupled with the intensive physical connection of holding, nursing, and caring for a child. But as children grow, they move farther into the . the energy body’s internal structure (often called meridians), and into its storage areas, are thereby cleared, redefined and enlarged. Progressively more and more life enhancing vital energy is thereby made available to the physical and energy bodies as these are developed with the NEW system.
