Alternative medicine glossary


Acupressure is a type of body work based on the same concept as ACUPUNCTURE. Rather than inserting needles into the body for treatment, Acupressure uses pressure applied from the finger tip or knuckle, or from a blunt tip instrument to stimulate specific points on the acupuncture meridians (Energy Channels) on the patients body.


Acupuncture is an ancient oriental medical system based on the energy meridians that run the length of the body. These meridians correspond to the major organs of the body and contain hundreds of acupuncture points. These points are stimulated with special needles that regulate the flow of energy. The points can also be stimulated with low power laser and RED L.E.D. devices. Acupuncture is commonly used to treat pain, but also can be used to treat many conditions including drug or alcohol addiction, sinus problems, tendentious and many other symptoms resulting from improper function of the various organs.

Acupuncture was fist discovered on the battlefields of ancient China, when soldiers wounded by arrows reported that other long-standing chronic ailments had suddenly disappeared. Before long, Chinese physicians found that the body has a complex network of invisible energy channels which Ki, the vital energy of life travels. They found 12 major and dozens of minor channels and discovered that each one was functionally related to specific organs and glands. These channels, though invisible to the eye, have been 'mapped' by Kirlian photography in Russia.

Bioenergetics also involves verbal exploration of emotional conflicts and their relationship to an individual's personal history.

Bowen Therapy

Bowen therapy is a gentle, yet powerful healing technique that utilizes a specific series of muscle and connective tissue movements to treat a wide range of chronic musculo-skeletal problems and sports related injuries. This unique physical/vibrational approach to healing sends a gentle signal to the body that allows the neuromuscular system to reset all tension levels thus promoting natural healing. The relaxation and relief one feels is profound and lasting, affecting the muscular, skeletal, digestive, respiratory and energetic systems. Bowen Therapy is a way of giving the body the gentle hint that it needs to find its own way back to health and balance.

Breathing Therapy

Breathing therapy is the art and science of cultivating Ki through correct breathing and circulating it through body & mind with soft rhythmic exercises. In Taoist therapy, Ki is literally referred to as 'medicine'. Patients under breathing therapy are advised to spend an hour or two each day 'sitting still doing nothing' as they practice breath control to balance their energies. If the patient is too weak to do the related calisthenics, or even sit up straight, the breathing is performed in reclining position, in which case the mind rather than the body 'moves energy' (yun-chee) to distribute it to the diseased areas.

People often turn to Taoist healing arts as a last resort- out of sheer desperation to live. Prior to falling ill they never give Tao a thought. Owing to the life-and-death nature of their struggle, such patients usually manage to master the methods taught very quickly, and they have no trouble mustering sufficient discipline to sit still and breath deeply for up to eight hours per day. It is amazing what the body and mind are capable of when life is at stake. Such examples should, however, serve as lessons to ordinary healthy people who still claim they 'don't have time' to practice for Tao. Practicing a little deep breathing every day in one of the best preventatives against disease and premature death. Learning how to breath correctly on your deathbed is a bit late in the game for health and longevity.

Ki can be directed externally for the purpose of self defense and attack as in the marital arts; Ki can also be directed internally for the purpose of health and longevity, healing and stress reduction, productivity and creativity, and inner power and spiritual growth as in Sunin Do. Four qualities of Ki energy circulate throughout the body system: negative, neutral, positive and pure.
