Bodily injuries, stresses and pain are a consistent concern at any age, it may be due to work, or sitting in front of a computer.
When performing Asian bodywork, a practitioner will first assess a patient’s condition before determining a proper form of care. Most assessments are based on traditional Chinese medicine principles. In addition to bodywork, many ABT practitioners may also recommend dietary and lifestyle changes, and specific exercises designed to promote health and enhance wellness.
Although Asian bodywork therapy has existed at least as long as – and perhaps longer than – acupuncture and herbal medicine, it has recently come to be a recognized form of traditional Chinese medicine. Oils are not used.
Auricular Ear Therapy: Involves inserting needles into specific points on the ear. Stimulating these points is thought to promote healing in other areas of the body. Over 200 points help promote healing.
- Chronic pain
- Irritable bowel syndrome
- Low back pain
In addition, auricular ear therapy is sometimes used to enhance mood, aid in smoking cessation, alleviate pain, promote sounder sleep, relieve stress, and support weight loss.
Acupressure: Acupressure attempts to balance the body’s energy levels by applying pressure to specific acupuncture points, thus releasing tension and promoting circulation of blood and qi. Amma is a specialized form aims to restore and balance the flow of energy (Chi) throughout your body. It uses gentle hand and finger pressure along specific points and energy pathways (meridians) on your body to restore your body to full health. There are many forms of Oriental bodywork, but they all share a common foundation in Chinese Medicine. They simply differ in their use of specific techniques to balance your energy. of Korean touch therapy that combines deep tissue manipulation with pressure, friction massage and touch to specific acupuncture points, along with various muscles, ligaments, joints and tendinomuscular junctions. Translated literally, amma means “push-pull.” As with acupuncture, the goals of amma are to remove blockages, ease stress and promote the circulation of qi, which helps restore and maintain health.
Cupping has numerous benefits — it can help remove toxins from the body and stimulate the flow of fresh blood, lymph, and Qi to the affected area and throughout the body. It often works wonders for patients with the flu, colds, coughs, back and muscle pain, poor circulation, anxiety, red itchy skin conditions (though cups are not applied to inflamed areas), allergies, fevers, aches and myriad other pains.
Moxibustion is a form of heat therapy in which dried plant materials called "moxa" are burned on or very near the surface of the skin. The intention is to warm and invigorate the flow of Qi in the body and dispel certain pathogenic influences.
Vermont Recovery Coach:
As a Vermont Recovery Coach, I create a partnership with people in recovery from addictions. A coach helps people to: create a vision for their recovery; identify and remove barriers to recovery; navigate through the human services system; access community resources; connect with recovery services, including treatment facilities, recovery centers, and mutual support groups. A coach works with people who have active addictions, people who are already in recovery, or with people who are concerned about someone else’s substance abuse. People who participate in the recovery coaching process must have a commitment to recovery. All conversations are confidential.
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.
