Oriental Healing Massage

--by Sunni Yuma

daoOriental Healing Massage works not only for relaxation, but utilizing various methods, it also improves health and cures ailments. It’s hard to tell you clearly in one word. I have to chase back to thousands of years ago. The Chinese Taoists invented a complete healing system for health. They included the following medical items; Taoist medicine, acupuncture, acupressure, Tuina, Taiji, Qigong as well as the spiritual elements of Fengshui, etc. There are a lot of Taoist texts pointing to the Taoism. I'll quote only a fragment of the Taoist healing way. The patients were treated with medication and meditation. As the time went on and with the efficacy of massage treatment for a variety of illnesses and ailments confirmed, this medical science has evolved and become commonly practiced all over Asia. Of these, acupressure and Tuina play the main role of oriental healing massage techniques, and it has more powerful effect when combined with Qigong treatment.

Traditional Chinese Medicine continues to use the Taoist Medicine techniques. It takes advanced utilities of the nature. When combined with a variety of herbs the patients can be cured. Whatever the Taoist medicine, or Taoist massage or Taoist Qigong, they basically search to balance the energy (Qi) flow to every system of the physical body and keep circulation flowing smoothly.

Today’s oriental massage includes Taoist acupressure and Tuina. Much research has been done to identify acu-points and channels. During oriental massage, special attention is paid to the acu-points and channels. It is said that proper use of acu-ponts and channels “Gives twice the result with half the effort.” During my training, we spent much time practicing on searching points and channels according to the various symptoms and developed the oriental massage on the basic of mastering Physiology, Anatomy, Kinesiology, Pathology and etc. Various conditions can be treated appropriately and rationally.

Tuina and Qigong help finish a perfect massage. For Tuina, you can learn from school and practice on sites, but for Qigong, it is not one day’s effort. I started it at age of five together with Gongfu, and have practiced all my life. In ancient China, and even now, Tuina is mastered often by the people who exercise Gongfu.

Taoist Qigong looks peaceful but has powerful utilities. Taiji belongs to one of Taoist Qigong. Its movements are very slow and gentle. You can’t see its power but you can feel its strength. During Taoist meditations Qigong runs all your way to open and activate the different energy centers and meridians of the body.

Massage and Medical QiGong can be done together in one treatment, or at times only one may be used depending on your personal situation and preference. Regularly, after one hour massage the practitioner feels sweaty and even fatigued, but for a Qigong master, he still looks peaceful and the patient feels no more pain. That is a supernatural power. Thus we continue to utilize the ancient massage techniques to benefit our people.

to Soak Feet

foot_soakerIt is said that FOOT is the second heart of human body. It collects the acu-points for all body systems, namely, whether you are healthy or not, it reflects the conditions on your feet, and you can relieve or cure dieases by soaking and massaging your feet. I think we must take good actions to protect our feet.

Nerve Blocks and Nerve Destruction

----by David Leggett, M.D., and Claudio Andres Feler; M.D., F.A.C.S.

To a physician practicing pain management, the term nerve block is not very specific. There are actually many different types of nerve blocks, each used for slightly different reasons. In the broadest sense, a nerve block simply means injecting a medication near a nerve that reduces or stops the ability of the nerve to transmit information to the brain.

Nerve Blocks were first used for local or regional anesthesia before the turn of the twentieth century. These medications blocked nerve tissue from conducting messages back and forth, so that surgical procedures could be performed without requiring general anesthesia. The shot that numbs your gums at the dentist’s office is technically a nerve block. This type of nerve block has only a temporary effect, usually lasting for a few hours at most. Many years ago, anesthesiologists and other doctors began trying to treat various chronically painful conditions with nerve blocks. Obviously, the few hours of relief that were obtained with local anesthetics were not very beneficial to patients who hurt constantly, so the doctors began using other medications in addition to, or in place of, the local anesthetic. The term nerve block continued to be used, however, even if no anesthetic was injected and the nerve signals never became blocked. Today, a variety of very different procedures are all referred to as nerve blocks. Many different medications can be injected including narcotics, steroids, antihypertension medications, anti-inflammatory medications, and others. Some of these medications are also used as intraspinal medications.

In addition to varying the medication injected, nerve blocks also vary according to exactly where in the body the medication is placed. The location of the injection is generally divided into three categories: central, peripheral, and sympathetic. Central blocks involve injections near the spine. Depending on the exact location of the injection, central blocks can also affect other structures such as bones, ligaments, intervertebral discs (the pad between each bone in the back), the joints of the back, and spinal cord and spinal nerves. Peripheral nerve blocks involve injections near various nerves outside the spinal column. This could include nerves traveling to the legs, arms, face, or head. Sympathetic blocks involve injections of the sympathetic (unconscious) nerves.

Nerve Blocks for spinal Pain

Cancer frequently causes back and spine pain both directly and indirectly. The most common direct cause of spine pain is the spread of the tumor to the vertebrae (bones of the spine). Although any type of cancer can spread to the spine, certain types, such as breast, colon, and prostate cancers, are more likely to metastasize to the vertebrae. In a few instances, the sudden onset of back pain is the first indication that a patient has cancer. Metastatic cancer causes pain by deforming the bone and stretching or irritating nerves in a tissue layer called the periosteum, which covers the bone. The cancer may also weaken a vertebra to the point that collapses on itself, resulting in a compression fracture. In some cases, the cancer can invade or compress the spinal cord or its nerve roots, resulting in pain that mimics that of a ruptured disc.

Certain types of cancer can cause back pain without actually invading the spine. For example, abdominal tumors such as pancreatic cancer can invade tissues behind the abdomen. The distension and inflammation of the muscles and nerves compressed by the tumor result in pain in the lower and middle back regions. Cancers of the kidney can cause similar effects.

The indirect effects of cancer probably cause as many cases of back pain in cancer patients as those caused by spread of the cancer to the spine. Cancer patients often experience considerable fatigue both from the cancer and from treatments like radiation and chemotherapy. Patients are often forced to curtail physical activity and may become bedridden. This diminished physical activity increases the likelihood that muscle and connective tissue in and around the spinal column will become irritated and inflamed, resulting in substantial back or neck pain.

Spinal injections are a mainstay in the management of both back and neck pain caused by the direct and indirect effects of cancer. They can benefit patients suffering from spine pain caused by metastatic invasion of the spine, and those whose pain results from indirect effects such as muscle weakness.
