The improvements in medical treatments have grown immensely in the last few years, and we now have many pills available to treat a myriad of diseases. We have pills to help up sleep, stay awake, get rid of headache, correct a chemical imbalance, and so many others that we could not possibly list them here. While in many ways these pills are great, they nearly all have the possibility of side effects. While some side effect may be mild or minor, others can be quite severe and may even lead to death!
These side effects have left many people seeking other alternatives to treating their ailments. One alternative method that people choose to try is Chinese Medicine. The Chinese have been using holistic treatments for hundreds of years and many of them are quite effective for treating many diseases, including Arthritis. One of these methods they use is called a ‘healing massage’. A healing massage can not help you to get better by clearing up blocks that may be making you sick, but you also get the benefit of relaxing in the process.
This Chinese traditional healing massage technique was developed over 2500 years ago in the orient. The healing massage treatment is based on an understanding of how the human touch, used in conjunction with specific pressure points, could help to get rid of ailments. You see each one of these touches would stimulate the specific areas of the body that were not in sync with the natural flow of energy. By doing this it allows the individual to begin his or her own healing process.
The Chinese found that by performing these massages the person begins to develop various reactions to touch, but they also start to develop into focus points for healing. For instance, many of the traditional massages for healing will focus on the stomach area in an effort to help balance out internal organs. In addition other parts of the massage will focus on the tissues and muscles that may not be getting the proper nutrients or flow of energy.
The healing techniques of Chinese medicine is one that can take you beyond the prescription pills and into a method of complete relaxation. The healing massage technique has been found to be helpful in relieving arthritis pain and many are choosing this as an alternative method to begin healing in a more natural way.
