Massage for Detoxification

Some of the conditions associated with toxicity

• Auto immune diseases
• Multiple sclerosis
• Chronic fatigue syndrome
• Lethargy and muscle fatigue
• Psychological problems e.g. anxiety, depression, claustrophobia
• Cancer
• Colds
• Joint pain
• Arthritic changes
• Fevers
• Skin eruptions
• Digestive disturbances

Treatment of toxicity
Toxins which are circulating in the blood are normally eliminated through the colon, the kidneys, the lungs, by the liver via the bile, the mucus membranes, and the sweat glands in the skin. Other toxins like bacteria and minute particles such as coal dust are taken up and neutralized by the lymphatic system. Toxic substances can bind to proteins in the interstitial tissues and are then broken down by the action of phagocytes.

Effects and application of massage
Massage is very beneficial in the treatment of toxicity. It helps to relieve the symptoms such as headaches, myalgia and fatigue and improves the function of the organ or system affected.

Massage is first of all applied to improve the circulation systemically in order to secure a good nutritional supply to all tissues. It is also utilized to enhance the venous return which is essential for the removal of toxins. To this end massage movements like effleurage and petrissage are applied to the superficial tissues and to muscles. Circulation to the visceral organs can also be enhanced; using similar techniques and, in some cases, by more specific methods such as compression massage for the liver and for the kidneys (described further on).

Reiki Really Works: A Groundbreaking Scientific Study

Science is catching up with what tens of thousands already know – Reiki, and other types of energy work, produce results.

” After decades of often disputed validity, the effectiveness of Reiki, a holistic energy treatment is gaining new respect within the medical community. Not only are highly reputable medical facilities throughout the U.S. offering patients alternative healing programs such as Reiki, those facilities are analyzing the benefits of their programs and are submitting them for review and compilation. The results of these Reiki research studies are nothing short of remarkable…The most recent data analyzed (during 2008-9) shows strong evidence that Reiki is indeed responsible for a positive biological response in both humans and animals…New York Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University Campus conducted one of the first studies ever performed to determine the effectiveness of Reiki treatments on the autonomic nervous system. This “blind, random study” included a Reiki treatment group, a “sham” treatment group and a “control” group. The testing began with all participants at “baseline” autonomic nervous systems levels. The results within the Reiki treatment group showed a lowering of these levels including heart rate, respiration and blood pressure. These positive results led the team to recommend further, larger studies to look at the biological effects of Reiki treatment.”

Circadian Rhythms Influence Immunity

This article on the connecting between sleep and your immune system from the Huffington Post outlines how lack of sleep or low quality sleep can have effects beyond feeling the need for a second cup of coffee.

Reflexology can help ease the stress, tension and pain that may interfere with your ability to get good, restful sleep.

———————————————————————–

It’s common knowledge that too little sleep can increase our odds of getting sick, but a new study sheds light on just how direct the connection is. Researchers found that the body’s circadian clock controls an essential immune system gene in mice — a gene that helps the body ward off bacteria and viruses…read full article

Vampires!

They walk among us, even in the daylight…and they don’t sparkle, sleep in coffins or have the ability to fly.

Every relationship, situation and encounter is an energy exchange. Some build your energy up and leave you feeling fantastic or peaceful. Some leave you feeling drained, overwhelmed, or exhausted.  Everyone has the capacity to be a vampire (even without meaning to be), so these encounters can sneak up on you and before you know it you’re in the clutches of a vampire.

How do you know if you’ve been the victim of an attack? Does your thinking become cloudy or confused? Is your mood suddenly really low? Do you feel tired or drained?

How can you protect yourself? Here’s a helpful article by Dr. Judith Orloff, MD. She’ll teach you how to spot 3 of the most common vampires and what simple steps you can take to protect yourself .

How does Reflexology work?

Rorgans and their corresponding reflex areaseflexology is a hand-on treatment that is meant to bring the body to a state of harmony and well-being. In reflexology, it is believed that there are reflex zones on the hands, feet and even the ears that correlate to specific body functions and organs. Energy is constantly circulating between organs and every living cell. When energy is blocked, problems arise in the area of blockage and crystals develop in the reflex zone, which is the source of pain in the area when a reflexologist applies pressure. Through proper massaging techniques, the energy blockages are destroyed and vitality is renewed.

One of the most common uses for reflexology is for stress relief. In our fast paced society today, everyone is looking for a way to unload the stress of everyday life. The effects of stress have been studied for quite some time and it is known that if you do not release stress from your body on a regular basis, it will eventually wreak havoc on your body in the form of one of many different sicknesses or diseases. Stress is in fact, a silent killer.

Outside of using it for stress relieving purposes, reflexology is also a beneficial tool for improving circulation, relieving pain, and as an immune and nervous system stimulator. In fact, many people with illnesses such as allergies; chronic sinus problems; acid reflux; migraines; PMS; menopause; insomnia; fertility problems; fibromyalgia; depression and even arthritis report significantly improved conditions as a result of the treatment. Even if you are healthy, reflexology is beneficial as preventative medicine for the body and soul.
