When a cup is applied to the skin, its creates a suction surrounding the area of its application and begins a movement between the layers of skin as far down as the muscles. This action removes toxins from the muscles/skin tissue along with stagnant blood within the area. (illustration 2)This is why some have suggested that 5 minutes of cupping is equivalent to 30 minutes of Deep Tissue Massage.
Acupressure to many will appear to be similar to Acupuncture and you're correct.The initial difference you might notice is the fact that we use our fingers to access the Acupoints rather than a needle. Acupoints accessed in Acupressure are the same as those used in Acupuncture.In Acupressure we do so by pressing on the Acupoint using our fingers in order to separate the outer layer of dry skin cells.Acupressure in some cases is taught to a client so that they can continue their treatments at home between visits to your practitioner. Some restrictions apply to with your practitioner.self-Acupressure so discuss your particular situation
There's little doubt that Reflexology has its roots in Acupressure and Chinese Meridian theory as they both emphasize the importance of the hands and feet as part of well being. The emphasis in Reflexology lies in the fact that when working on the hands and feet, you can reach the major organs.
Our meditation is oriented towards your physical wellbeing. We can show how to meditate for physical balance, helping the healing process if you're recovering and achieving calm both physical and mental to name a few.
Qigong is an umbrella term used to define a complete health system originating in China some 5,000 years ago.
It consists of exercises, meditation and various clinical practices.
At the time of its inception, there were only 3 principally educated sectors of Chinese society. They were, the Emperor's staff and the Buddhist and Taoist monks.
It was the Taoist and the Buddhist monks who wrote down the specifics or theory of Qigong for the most part and, for the benefit of all society.
This association, has led many to believe that Qigong is a religious practice.
Unless the individual seeks religious training, it is NOT part of their training.
Qigong Teachers and practitioners come from all walks of life as well as, religious backgrounds. It is not an issue, as the overall focus is directed towards health.
There are 4 divisions found in Qigong:
Qigong training is open to everyone regardless of your present condition.
If you're active and in good health, you can learn dynamic exercises to strengthen and balance you physically.
If you have health concerns, we can teach you Clinical Qigong exercises and meditation.
As long as you can focus on what you're doing, you should be good to go!
The beauty of Qigong is its ability to be adapted to meet each individual's needs with various health conditions
It should not. The goal or intention is to complement your primary care practitioner's treatments.
Before you begin any additional practices or treatments, you should check with your primary care provider. Never self-diagnose!!!
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) categorizes Qigong as Complementary Integrative Medicine
No, depending on your physical condition, the exercises can be tailored to accomodate your needs. Qigong exercises can be done from standing, sitting and supine positions. The training can be very low impact for those recovering from an illness to high impact for martial training. Qigong is very good for individuals with physical limitations because of its adaptability
A Clinical Qigong Practitioner is a trained and certified professional. The Certified Clinical Practitioner has 500-1,000 hours of verified Clinical Qigong training.
We recommend that you check a Clinical Qigong Practitioner's credentials before beginning any treatments.
No, and this why it is imperative that any individual receiving Qigong treatments should verify the credentials of a practitioner.
In order to receive Clinical/Medical certification, they should have a minimum 500 hours of verifiable training. You can refer to the National Qigong Association Certification requirements.
Qigong Meditation (with the exception of the religious application) is practiced to calm the mind in order to allow for healing to occur in an uninterrupted manner.
Qigong meditation is not meant to control your mind, but rather to stop your mind from controlling you!
When visiting a Clinical Qigong Practitioner, you can expect to be interviewed followed by a preliminary assessment followed by Qigong therapy .
In most cases, the client can expect to receive "home work" in order to continue to benefit from the treatments he/she received during the visit.
Because for the most part, the terminology being used by the majority of western practitioners is still the one translated from Chinese.
In many cases, the terms don't directly translate correctly into English however, an experienced practitioner can explain the terminology so that you can understand it.
The terms used in ancient China were meant to communicate with an uneducated agrarian society in the simplest manner possible based on their knowledge base.
Depending on what type of exercise set you're doing and the amount of repetitions, they it could take as little as 20 minutes a session.
Perseverance is the key!
Results vary and are dependent on your physical status at the time you begin your practice.
When doing these new exercises, it will take time for your body to get accustomed to the movements and relax in order to allow the practice to take effect.
