One dictionary definition of Complementary Therapy:
“A variety of therapeutic or preventive health care practices, such as aromatherapy, reflexology, shiatsu, and herbal medicine, that do not follow generally accepted medical methods and may not have a scientific explanation for their effectiveness.”
No scientific explanation! Maybe not, but they have hundred thousands of years of proven efficacy and that is why they are still used today.
A complementary Therapy can be extremely powerful at balancing and healing the body. It is used to “tune” our various organs, muscles, blood and lymph flow.
When applied by a qualified practitioner, or by yourself, it can help you recover health if sick. It can also be used to remove toxins from your body and prevent the onset of a disease.
You can practice Acupressure on yourself if you wish. A therapist may also be hired to give you a massage.
Acupressure can be defined as the pressing of some precise points to relieve pain, balance the body, free energy etc…
These points are located on the 14 body meridians.
The discovery of Meridian energy lines:
Meridians lines are used in Acupuncture, Acupressure and Shiatsu.
There are various schools that teach Meridians principles. The most well known are Zen style, Macrobiotic style and Shiatsu or Tsubos therapy style.
Meridians were talked about as long ago as 2500 BC in a book commonly known as the Nei Ching (The Yellow Emperor’s classic of Internal Medicine).
This book is said to have been written by Huang Ti, the yellow emperor who lived between 2696 BC and 2598 BC. It has played a very important part in most studies of Meridians.
The text is in the form of a dialogue between the emperor and his minister Ch’I Po when the emperor asks questions on health.
A bronze model showing Meridians and tsubos points has been dated 860 AD.
Altogether, there are 14 paired meridians (according to Yin Yang principles) and over 660 Acu pressure points in the body
The pairs are as follows :
The first meridian in each box is the Yang meridian and the second is the Yin meridian. i.e. Heart is Yang, Small Intestines are Yin. Lungs are Yang, Large Intestines are Yin etc..
An aromatherapy massage is delightful as it combines the benefits of a massage with the added power of the essential oils.
There are numerous oils used in Aromatherapy, but some are what we call core oils.
My favorite for massage essential oils are:
I also used the following oils for special situations: thyme, juniper, peppermint, tea tree, eucalyptus.
This should be given using pure organic oil. The therapist (if properly trained) will use many different strokes on your body:
Many poorly trained therapists unfortunately only use Effleurage and Petrissage. I would not recommend you use these people as you will not get the full benefits of the massage.
You may want to test the massage therapist before you hire her. Ask her what strokes she uses. If she cannot name all the above, move along.
This page on my other website explains how to thoroughly cleanse your Colon.
When living in England, I used to have a colonic irrigation once or twice a year.
Despite what some therapists tell you, I would not recommend that you have regular colonics as they wash away all friendly bacteria from your intestines.
Your intestines could also get used to the cleanse and get lazy flushing themselves on their own.
Leave at least 3 to 5 months between each treatment.
A colonic irrigation needs special equipment and even though Alison my favorite therapist claims this is something you can do yourself; I believe she is talking as an extremely confident and knowledgeable therapist.
I’d personally be afraid of redecorating my room if I treated myself.
Negative emotions are arguably the main trigger to disease. It is of the utmost importance to keep your emotions as positive as you can.
There are techniques that can be used to help you cope with negative emotions or stress:
Full information may be found on my other website.
A few years ago, I was researching the different herbs and products that could be used to cleanse our descending and sigmoid colons with an enema (and our Liver).
My research got me to read several books, articles, web pages, etc... but nobody had actually covered the different herbs, products, food, etc.. that could be used in enemas. Leave alone the beneficial effects the ingredients had.
Having gathered all this information, I wrote the book myself:
“The Complete Enema Recipe Handbook - Keep your Intestines clean with 22 different Enema Recipes & learn the effect of different food on your body”.
Click on the corresponding heading on the left for a full explanation on Enemas.
Hands on healing is a passion of mine, and I have studied many forms of healing:
A wonderful form of massage when the scalp, head, neck and upper shoulders are treated.
It is thoroughly relaxing and I often have had the client fall asleep during this massage.
An ordinary chair can be use for this massage but some therapist prefer to use a special “massage chair’.
You may read about the various herbs that can be used to cleanse your kidneys here.
The most powerful way I have found to cleanse your Liver.
How to remove these thousands of tiny bile or cholesterol stones that you have been accumulating for many years. These stones can block your bile ducts and cause serious health problems.
No complicated or aggressive surgery is needed. The process is simple and clearly explained in this page.
Macrobiotic is one of the most powerful therapy for healing if you are unwell. It can be helped for all types of disease ranging from colds to cancer or heart problems.
After being diagnosed with cancers of the liver and large intestines, I turned my back on modern medicine and chose to learn Macrobiotic diet.
Macrobiotic is more than a diet, it is a way of life. When done properly, it has the power to help sufferer recover health from these so called “incurable disease”.
A consultation is recommended when first starting this diet.
Basically, a Psychic Surgeon enters a person's body using his / her Bare Hands and manually removes diseased or dead tissues, tumors, calcium deposits and other matters that should not be there.
No anesthetic or drugs of any kind are used during the surgery and the patient is not hypnotized in any way.
The surgery is performed without inflicting any pain, coming out without leaving any visible marks or scars.
After the surgery, you may get up and resume your daily activities with more of less the same amount of energy that you had before the surgery.
Impossible ? Yes, but only according to modern scientific standards.
I have been involved with Psychic Surgery since 1997 and I have witnessed and filmed several thousand major operations performed in minutes.

This can be practiced with the client sitting on an ordinary chair. The therapist will face you. When a foot is massaged, it will often be resting on a stool facing you. The therapist will be on the other side of the stool, facing your foot.
As a Reflexologist myself, I used to sit on a very small stool so my chest was level with my client’s feet.
A couch can of course be used to give the massage but, if you are a mobile therapist and visit clients at their home, it is not practical to carry it around as it is heavy.
Even though Reflexology is best received from a therapist, I have often given myself a Reflexology massage. Some flexibility is needed to achieve this, but it is good for emergency treatment.
This is performed with the client fully clothed and usually lying on a mat.
The Shiatsu practitioner will use his thumbs, hands, fists, elbow, feet, knees to apply the massage. Clients will be pushed on and stretched.
No oil or other substances are used for this massage.
You will feel good at the end of such a massage.
