Chinsese Idiom: Magic Hands that Give New Life


ReturningSpring® takes its name from a classic Chinese idiom: 妙手回春 (miào shǒu huí chūn).  Often translated as “magical hands that bring the dying back to life,” the phrase is often used to describe a physician who has such extraordinary skills that they can cure the most severe of diseases.   The phrase is composed of two parts, taken from classical Chinese poetry from two separate dynasties: The Jin and the Song Dynasties.
