Constantinos Grivas

Constantinos Grivas

Constantinos Grivas was born in 1965 in Athens, Greece. He graduated from the Agricultural University of Athens and completed his MSc in the Department of Botany, on the use of medicinal plants in Mount Athos. Fascinated by the Asian medical traditions he took the 3 year therapist degree from the Akadimia of Ancient Greek and Traditional Chinese Medicine, studying acupuncture, herbalism and massage techniques (Tuina, Shiatsu, Thai Massage etc.). He also studied Tibetan Medicine and Kunye (Tibetan Massage Therapy) with Tsering Tsamchoe (General Secretary of Central Council of Tibetan Medicine) and Aldo Oneto (International Shang Shung Institute for the study and preservation of Tibetan heritage and culture), as well as various other therapeutic methods. He still follows specialized seminars by Chinese, Korean, European or American professors and practitioners of holistic medical systems. Since 2009 he gives regular lectures on the Greek and Chinese herbs, the history and theory of Ancient Greek Medicine, Acupuncture and other treatments, in the Akadimia of Ancient Greek and Traditional Chinese Medicine. He authored a book on Greek herbs and another one on the history of Ancient Greek Medicine, which are used as tools by the students of the corresponding classes. His intense interest on the history of medicine and especially the Ancient Greek one, was expressed with the presentation of several research subjects in conferences for the history of medicine:

  • Tsering Tsamchoe & Constantinos Grivas: A preliminary comparison between Greek and Tibetan uroscopy, 8th Congress of the International Association for the History of Nephrology, September 11-14, 2013, in Ancient Olympia and Patras, Greece.
  • Alexandros Tilikidis, Sevastos Giannakidis & C. Grivas: Comparative study between 1st pair of Hippocratic “phlebes” & the primary meridian of foot taiyang (urinary bladder of chinese acupuncture). 44th Congress of the International Society for the History of Medicine “The Great Silk Road & Medicine”, 10-14 September 2014, Tbilisi, Georgia.
  • Constantinos Grivas & Tsering Tsamchoe: Greek Theriac & Tibetan Rinchen Recipes: A Possible Transfer of Knowledge Through the Silk Road. 44th Congress of the International Society for the History of Medicine “The Great Silk Road & Medicine”, 10-14 September 2014, Tbilisi, Georgia.
  • Constantinos Grivas: Exploring Greek texts on cosmetics in Imperial Rome, May 16, 2017, 5th International Phytocosmetics and Phytotherapy Congress, 14-17 May 2017, University of Patras, Patras Rio, Greece.

Ecology is yet another area that attracted his scientific interests. He is working systematically on environmental studies and particularly the implementation of this knowledge on the management of wildlife and protected areas, as well as man-made ecosystems. Except of various scientific papers, he authored a book titled Agricultural Good Practice Guide (published by the Natural History Museum of Crete-University of Crete, 2006), which was used as a textbook by the Department of Agriculture of the Technological Educational Institute of Crete.

His practice in Japanese and Chinese martial arts, breathing and meditation techniques started back in 1983, when he was a first-year university student. The long and deep engagement with the history, practice and theory of the martial arts, gave him the opportunity to cross paths with teachers that had a profound understanding, both on the practical application, as well as on the philosophical aspect of these arts. He is still actively involved in the teaching of martial arts and very recently he published a paper on The influence of Japanese Budo in the West (collective volume Modern Cultural Perspectives: Japanese Influences, ed. C. Konstantopoulou, Papazisi, 2017).
