I am a certified fascial manipulation specialist, which required me learning 3 levels over 2.5 years and then completing an exam in Italy. At present there are only 2 of us in the UK with this qualification.
It is such an impressive treatment, Stecco is well known within the industry for his outstanding contribution to this invention. Here is an understanding of what it is all about:
Acupuncture and Naturopathy
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has been around for centuries. The body has channels known as meridians. The channels correspond to 12 organs in the body and extra channels too. Each organ has points along the meridian; some have up to 57, others 19. Each point has many functions.
The body also has qi and blood circulating through the channels. In TCM, Qi is the energy source of the body; blood is the mother of qi. Yin and Yang balance the body, Yin is night, and Yang is day. TCM is all about getting the balance right in all of the above.
“by the way of definition, iridology is a science whereby the doctor or operator can tell from the markings or signs in the iris of the eye the reflex condition of the various organs of the body. In other words, it is the science of determining acute, sub-acute, chronic, and destructive stages in the affected organs of the body through their corresponding areas in the iris. Drug deposits, inherent weaknesses and living habits are also revealed in the iris of the eye.” (Jensen 1983, foreword)
Fibromyalgia Treatment Clinic
Fibromyalgia (FMS) is a chronic pain and fatigue condition that affects 1 out of 25 people. Women are mainly affected but also men too. The most common age group is 30 to 50 years old but it can still affect younger and older people as well.
- Symptoms can be:
- ‘Brain Fog’
- Chronic Fatigue
Lots of people have now cottoned on to the fact that this is the best form of massage to have as we look at the reasons why your body is behaving the way it is.
With each client there is an assessment. This is there to provide me with some idea of how your body is mechanically working.
Kinesio Taping is a taping method that can help people from all walks of life.
The tape is heat adhesive and once on it lifts the skin, allowing the interstitial fluid movement through the superficial lymphatic vessels.
The decrease in fluid pressure would therefore allow for improvement in muscle function.
So what better way to help them and you by showing some stretches to help improve your flexibility and also prevent injuries!
There are quite a few stretches with photos in this section and I have named them in basic terminology, for you to understand.
