Additional Information

Touch is one of those basic aspects of life that is oftentimes taken for granted. Yet touch in the form of therapeutic massage can be one of the most effective means of natural healing. Massage as a holistic practice is increasingly recognized as a valid adjunct to general healthcare practices.In our highly stressful environment, massage provides you with quiet time to focus on yourself and become more connected to your body. It not only helps you to relieve stress and tension, but can aid in discovering its source. Best of all—it feels good!

Massage is a stimulating, manual manipulation of the body’s soft tissue for the purpose of feeling better through touch. When done properly, massage helps to create trust, empathy, and respect for our physical existence leading to a general sense of well-being.A massage can be directed toward a particularly painful or tight area or be an overall full body massage. In addition, massage is appropriate for people of all ages.

In her groundbreaking new book, "Handbook of Energetic Job Safety", Christine H. Schenk enlightens people further about this subject in her offering of a guide for the creation of a way to act with certainty when working in the field of energies - providing a much-needed method for self-check. This book has been written for practitioners working with energy healing methods as well as for clients who are intending to allow those practitioners to take care of them - all with the primary purpose of providing a practical method to ensure energetic safety and security within the workplace.

When hearing about job safety, most people would not normally consider energetic healing methods as included in this topic. Typically, one would instead think of job safety as related to accidents that happen in workplaces such as steel mills or on construction sites. Upon further thought, it becomes clear that it is also applicable to the neglectful acts occurring within the medical profession, instances such as medical sponges or scissors being forgotten and left in patients during surgery, or even the injection of patients with contaminated hypodermic needles. Whereas the broad spectrum of energetic healing methods is left out of this job safety category - believed instead to be merely provided for alleviation of discomfort with hope for a medical cure. It is further associated as an alternative medicine technique and thus considered to be a gentle form of treatment. Certainly no one thinks that these so-called gentle energetic healing methods could possibly have harmful side effects. Well, think again.

Christine H. Schenk documents in her committed plea for energetic job safety that quite the contrary is the case. She shows us quite explicitly that our belief that energetic healing methods can "do no harm" is actually a paradoxical assumption. On the one hand, we expect that alternative methods provide a cure just as effective as conventional ones. Yet, on the other hand, we completely forget and "blank out" that highly effective methods can always carry the risk of a false application and are thus able to create damage and subsequent long-lasting injuries. This is precisely why practitioners of energy healing methods are not immune to errors.

Regardless of this fact, physicians and psychotherapists can still be confronted with problems of energetic origin, which are then erroneously categorized to be of a medical or psychological source and treated as such. This is how a health care practitioner can completely miss the finer details of working with clients in terms of protecting and establishing the energetic stability and thus overall energetic health of those they so genuinely want to help.

I have been practicing Tai Chi Chuan for over thirty years. Tai Chi has taught me to cultivate my internal energy system through tapping into the universal life energy, also known as chi. Chi is just another word for the vital energy that exists within yourself and all living things on our planet. It is this universal life energy connection that has given me more gifts in life than I could have ever imagined. Through diligent and purposeful practice of this martial art I have acquired the strength, internal energy and focus to achieve personal growth, balance, abundant chi and the ability to share this chi with others during my healing work.

Tai Chi Chuan is based on a Chinese teaching over 5000 years old and means "the grand way of life as taught through movement." This ancient gentle yet powerful Chinese way of movement teaches one to live in harmony with nature. Tai Chi is meditation through movement practiced with both relaxation and concentration. Tai Chi reconnects the mind to the body, the conscious to the subconscious and the individual to their environment. With its circular movements, rhythmic breathing, and flowing postures, Tai Chi allows the full potential within each of us to blossom. Benefits also include the creation of peace of mind, vibrant health, physical coordination, self defense, and longevity.


Acupuncture is an ancient system of natural healing that originated in China 4,000 years ago. Acupuncture's popular interest in the United States was stimulated by President Nixon’s visit to China in 1972. Today, the National Institute for Health is spearheading numerous scientific investigations of acupuncture’s physiological action in pain management and its integration into other dimensions of medical practice. Acupuncture is rapidly taking its legitimate place as a valuable therapeutic technique in modern medicine.

Acupuncture is a complex system of examination, diagnosis and treatment based on the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine. It is preventive medicine, that is, it creates and maintains health and is often used as an analgesic technique which brings relief from pain. Acupuncture can also be employed for anesthetic purposes, although most Western practitioners are not trained in acupuncture anesthesia. needles

Acupuncture is based upon the principle that any dysfunction is the result of an imbalance in the body’s organic, energetic and natural activity. The insertion of acupuncture needles opens up the flow of vital energy, also known as ‘Chi’ (or Qi), thereby restoring health to the body. When ‘Chi’ is flowing properly throughout our meridian pathways, all of our processes operate in a rhythmic and harmonious way.Meridians are energy pathways that run from the top of the head to the tips of the toes and fingers. There are 14 main meridians each corresponding directly to certain vital organs of the body. For instance, there is a Lung Meridian that runs from your upper torso to your thumb and a Stomach Meridian that runs from right below your eye to your second toe. It is helpful to liken meridians to our circulatory or nervous systems, except in this case the system is transporting energy rather than blood or nerves.

Acupuncture points are specific areas located along the meridian pathways where energy can be accessed. There are 365 main acupuncture points utilized by an acupuncturist to restore health to the body. Traditional Chinese Medicine theory states that when acupuncture points are blocked or congested, the result is “imbalance” or “disease.” During an acupuncture treatment needles are inserted into specific acupuncture points to stimulate the energy that is either blocked or congested. The points are chosen on a particular meridian based on the patient’s symptoms and root cause of disease.

One example of an acupuncture point is Stomach 36 (Zusanli) which is used to strengthen digestion and vital energy. Its translation is “3 mile point” and tradition holds that treatment of Stomach 36 enables a weakened patient to easily walk three miles.Application of various means of manipulation to the needle is employed by the acupuncturist to either sedate or tonify the acupuncture point. The needle manipulation stimulates and balances the flow of Chi (vital energy), which in turn restores health and aids in prevention of illness. The ultimate goal of this process is activation of the patient’s vital energy to allow the body to balance and heal itself.

The number of acupuncture treatments necessary for a course of treatment varies with the type of illness, degree of seriousness, length of time the patient has been ill, and the patient’s condition at time of treatment. Young children respond very quickly, often immediately, and older people more gradually. In general, one month of treatment is indicated for every year that a problem has existed. An average course of treatment lasts anywhere from 10 to 15 weeks, however, this can vary considerably due to individual needs.After energetic balance has been restored and a patient’s problem has been alleviated, it is suggested that acupuncture treatments be received four times a year at the change of seasons. The purpose of an acupuncture treatment at these times is for health maintenance and disease prevention.

Swedish Massage: is a technique which applies long superficial strokes combined with deep kneading, rolling, and rubbing of the body’s musculature. Swedish massage is always done in the same direction as the flow of blood returning to the heart. It’s purpose is to relieve stress, relax muscles, increase circulation, and remove metabolic waste products. It also helps the recipient obtain a feeling of connectedness and a better awareness of their body. Swedish Massage shortens recovery time from muscular strain by flushing the tissue of lactic acid, uric acid, and other metabolic wastes.

Deep Tissue Massage: This form of massage focuses on removing knots and releasing chronic muscle tension.  Stubborn patterns of tension are released through slow stokes and deep pressure.   Deep tissue massage promotes physical and emotional well-being—and the rewards that come from releasing muscle tension and adhesions within the deep fascia of the body are simply wonderful.

Myofascial: works with the body’s contractile connective tissues (muscles) and non-contractile supportive connective tissues (fascia) through the application of gentle traction, pressures and positioning. Fascia is a complex supportive web which affects the musculo-skeletal, nervous and organ systems. Myofascial release techniques coax muscles in spasm to relax and break adhesions in the fascia. Bodies respond to this therapy by releasing tension stored in the fascia, thus increasing flexibility and mobility of the muscles, fascia and associated structures.

Neuromuscular Therapy: uses advanced concepts in pressure therapy to break the stress-tension-pain cycle. It aims to relax muscle so that circulation can increase and the body will return to normal neuromuscular integrity and balance

Sports Massage: focuses on the muscles related to one’s particular athletic activity. It includes pre-event, post-event and maintenance massage techniques that promote improved athletic endurance and performance, lessen chance of injury, and reduce recovery time.

Trigger Point and Myotherapy: are pain-relief techniques to alleviate muscle spasms and cramping. The therapist locates and deactivates `trigger points’ which are often tender areas where muscles have been damaged or in spasm. The major goal is to reduce spasm thereby inducing new blood flow into the affected area.
