Did you know that their are some amazing healing practices out there that your body is probably begging you to try? Traditional Medicine is boring, and only covers up issues, numbs the pain, but does not deal with it on a deeper level so it can stay gone for good. Look at the following list of therapies, some new, some old for some amazing insight.
Reiki(Usui-a traditional healing modality by the name of the inventor-Dr.Mikao Usui). Karuna Reiki, and Kundalini are different types of Reiki healing, they all heal deeply, and gently to help your body naturally heal itself through your chakras(tunnels of energy in your body). It is deeply relaxing, and sometimes you get so relaxed you feel a connection to the other side, see colors, images, and light. It can clear up physical conditions, diseases, helping you deal with mental issues as well. A treatment is very special. I might want to add Reiki is NOT a massage. It is either a hands on treatment, or some(such as myself, use intuitive reiki) scan your body and hold the hands inches over the chakras and move around the front and the back of the body. http://www.reiki.org
Quantum Touch-This is a workshop that is going around, and has for a few years, maybe even about six or so years. It can be used to supercharge other healing modalities, and is based off a high vibrational touch in order to heal the patient. the website says: “The Quantum-Touch techniques teach us how to focus and amplify life-force energy (or Chi, Bioenergy, Prana) by combining various breathing and energy awareness exercises. QT energy healers learn to amplify and direct the life-force energy, facilitating the body’s own healing process”. They say nurses, massage therapists can use it, as well as Reiki healers to boost the energy coming through. http://www.quantumtouch.com/
Polarity Therapy-This is a quote from a website about Polarity:
Energy fields and currents exist everywhere in nature. Polarity Therapy asserts that the flow and balance of energy in the human body is the foundation of good health. In the Polarity model, health is experienced when:
Energy systems function in their natural state, and
Energy flows smoothly without significant blockage or fixation.
When energy is unbalanced, blocked or fixed due to stress or other factors, pain and disease arise. Energetic Touch is the work Polarity Practitioners perform with clients – verbal interaction is energetic communication which has to do with reading the energy in people’s words and staying neutral vs. engaging in the emotions of the patient and verbal interaction. Contact may be light, medium or firm. In the session, the practitioner supports the client in increasing self-awareness of subtle energetic sensations, which are often experienced as tingling, warmth, expansion or wavelike movement. The results of Polarity Therapy sessions vary, and may include profound relaxation, an understanding of energetic patterns and their implications, and relief from numerous specific problematic situations such as hypertension, anxiety attacks and breathing disorders.” Info: http://www.polaritytherapy.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=section&layout=blog&id=5&Itemid=3
Therapeutic Touch-used to balance and promote the flow of human energy. Similiar to Reiki, but draws upon other ancient techniques. Read this link here for more info: http://www.therapeutictouch.org/what_is_tt.html
Roffling- A technique that promotes posture and might be a little similiar to Chiropractors, only gentler. Read about it: http://www.rolfing.org/index.php?id=135
Myofascial Release is a safe and very effective hands-on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the Myofascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion. This essential “time element” has to do with the viscous flow and the piezoelectric phenomenon: a low load (gentle pressure) applied slowly will allow a viscoelastic medium (fascia) to elongate.
Trauma, inflammatory responses, and/or surgical procedures create Myofascial restrictions that can produce tensile pressures of approximately 2,000 pounds per square inch on pain sensitive structures that do not show up in many of the standard tests (x-rays, myelograms, CAT scans, electromyography, etc.)
The use of Myofascial Release allows us to look at each patient as a unique individual. Our one-on-one therapy sessions are hands-on treatments during which our therapists use a multitude of Myofascial Release techniques and movement therapy. We promote independence through education in proper body mechanics and movement, self treatment instruction, enhancement of strength, improved flexibility, and postural and movement awareness.
“BioEnergetic Assessment is a non-invasive method of assessing the meridians, or energetic pathways, of the body that are traditionally associated with particular organs and systems. The indications from the BEA assessment assist you and your practitioner in determining which treatments and remedies would be appropriate in establishing your personal health maintenance program.
Bio Energetic Assessment is state of the art computer based system used for measuring the energetic balance (chi) of the body. BEA can determine bioelectrical disturbances in the organs and systems and the energetic causes that deter optimum health. A regimen of natural remedies is then correlated that will restore balance. This technology is based on electromagnetic resonance, and allows us to take the guesswork out of the supplementation process.
Although relatively new in this country, Bio Energetic Testing is internationally viewed as one of the most significant breakthroughs in medicine in many years. It is gaining rapid acceptance for three very good reasons: the procedure is totally painless; it is affordable and clinically very accurate and effective. The technique is well understood, accepted and widely used in many countries including Germany, France, England and Canada. The biggest advantage of this program is that it literally takes the guesswork out of selecting the appropriate nutritional supplements that are best suited for the patient.” This is according to the main website.
Integrative Medicine-“Designed to treat the whole person, not just the disease”. Its a new type of medicine that helps you on different levels. When I looked it up, its the same on other areas also, not just the town I was in. They have yoga, tai chi, fitness and nutrition and meditation. I read an article recently where a woman was recieving this kind of care and it was transcribed. The doctor helped her with self esteem, stress, vitamin therapy, all in one or two sessions. It was fascinating. I also just read a patient with Parkinsons Disease was given nutritional IV drips along with several vitamins a day and has stopped shaking and recieved a great deal of relief. They treat underlying causes.
BAUD-“The Bio-Acoustical Utilization Device (BAUD) is a device that creates sonic waves that coincide with brain frequencies measured by an electroencephalogram (EEG). By integrating the BAUD as a stimulant with other therapies, such as neurotherapy or music therapy, the individual can better grasp the significance of regulating their brain waves as well as other psychophysiological dimensions, such as relaxation and indices of mood. The Music frequencies can increase or decrease a person’s mood levels; drum rhythms also have been documented as having an affect. All of the body can be influenced by external frequencies, such as the frequency waves measured by the electrocardiogram (EKG) or sonogram energy waves for the heart, electromyogram and the (EMG) energetic waves from the surface muscles.” http://baudenergetics.com/theBAUD.htm
I read an article about this as well. A woman had chronic anxiety and used the machine, with assistance from a doctor. At the end of the session, her anxiety was gone.
EFT,MTT- Emotional Freedom Technique and Meridian Tapping Techniques are both invented by some great people. They use the meridian map on your face and chest, sometimes your leg(MTT) and you tap on these points while either saying what is bothering you, or holding what you are upset about in your mind.
You can also use affirmations as well. What the tapping does is release the caged up emotions from your cells into the bloodstream. Its similiar to Acupuncture, it uses similiar points on the body. People have gotten rid of phobias, lifelong problems with a few sessions. You are allowed to do it on yourself, but it takes longer and is hard to figure out what is wrong with you, and to say the right words while tapping. Their are practitioners available who can help you.
The Reconnection-is by Dr.Eric Pearl, a Chiropractor who while he was working on his clients they reported that when his hands were anywhere near their body, they said they were cured of cancer, aids, and heard and saw angelic figures. the website said it is :”It reconnects us to the fullness of the universe as it reconnects us to the fullness of our beings and of who we are. It is considered to be able to reconnect us to the universe and to our very essence not just through a new set of healing frequencies, but through possibly an entirely new bandwidth. The reality of its existence has demonstrated itself clearly in practice as well as in science laboratories.” so you go in to be reconnected and its supposed to be life changing. people have reported looking younger, having little stress, and feeling great. http://www.thereconnection.com/faq
Reflexology is the practice of applying pressure to the feet and hands utilizing specific thumb, finger and hand techniques without the use of oil, cream or lotion based on a system of zones and reflex areas that reflect an image of the body on the feet and hands with a premise that such work effects a physical change in the body.” It reduces pain, creates relaxation, improves blood flow, has been known to affect blood pressure and cholesterol levels. Relieves stress.
Healing Touch: “Healing Touch is used in a wide variety of settings including hospitals, long term care facilities, private practices, hospices, and spas. Janet Mentgen, RN, founded Healing Touch in 1989 as a continuing education program for nurses, massage therapists, other health care professionals, and lay persons. Today Healing Touch has spread internationally and is taught in universities, medical and nursing schools, and other settings internationally.”
Intuitive Bodywork: “The client lays face up, fully clothed on the bodywork table. I begin by placing my hands at the feet, tuning in to see where the body wants to begin. It tells me where to start and I simply place my hands on the area that I am guided to.
The client can feel and experience a wide range of sensations. They can feel tingling, numbness, heat, cold, energy shooting through the area or radiating into other areas or the whole body (feels a little like electricity), twitching, emotions, old memories can come to the surface of the mind, or some people just feel relaxed. There is no wrong or right way to experience the session, the body will do exactly what it needs to do to help the client heal.” The site says that things come to them, messages that fit more in with what the client believes so you can communicate to them and help them. They recieve symbols, sensations, colors that only make sense to the client.”
Gemstone Healing: Gems have energy frequencies just like everything else in the world, we just dont think about it or recognize it. If you think gems are meaningless, than so are you. You are energy as well. So gemstone healing is based off of energies that radiate from the stone and into the body to help faciliate healing. Off the top of my head, I always think of Gemispheres. Its this Oregon based company that is extremely popular. They charge 500 to 1,000 dollars for round pearl shaped gemstones of different varities. They call them spheres. They can help you with physical problems you hare having and are supposed to be of extreme high quality. http://gemisphere.com/
“Acupuncture is a method of encouraging the body to promote natural healing and to improve functioning. This is done by inserting needles and applying heat or electrical stimulation at very precise acupuncture points.” It runs off of the body’s meridian points. When needles are applied there for a period of time, they can release blockages in the body and speeds up the healing process.

Hypnotherapy: Contrary to belief, this is not a fake science. You don’t go to sleep, you are fully aware consiously, but your body is asleep. Your mind is activated deeply in order to bring about change. It is used to treat phobias, addictions, weight gain, pretty much anything you can think of.
I am very happy to find all of these therapies, some of them new. I can you tell you first hand that they are legit. I have only experienced intuitive bodywork, and Reiki, but being a student of understanding energy, the rest of these therapies make a lot of sense. The people in these professions care about their clients, and consider it their life calling and soul purpose. It is exciting to participate in them and have them transform your body.
