Default Some Alternative Therapies

Acupuncture
An ancient Chinese medical procedure involving insertion and manipulation of needles at more than 1000 points in the human body. Applied to relieve pain during surgery or in rheumatic conditions, and to treat many other conditions- anxiety/depression, arthritis, asthma, pain, eczema, sports injuries, allergies and hayfever, migraine, menstrual disorders, gastrointestinal problems and pregnancy management and delivery.
Acupuncture is used today in most hospitals in China and increasingly by practitioners in Europe, and the United States. Acupuncture has grown in popularity in the United States since the 1970s and is now widely regarded as a safe and effective treatment for a variety of conditions.

The Alexander Technique
Time-tested method of teaching ways to
restore our natural balance, flexibility and ease of movement. It
teaches the use of the appropriate amount of effort for a particular
activity, releasing more energy for all our activities. It is not a
series of treatments or exercises, but rather a reeducation of the mind
and body that helps you discover a new balance in your body by releasing
unnecessary tension. It can be applied to all of your daily activities.
The Alexander Technique places a great deal of emphasis on the
relationship between your head and neck. The way we manage that
relationship has huge implications for the way the rest of our body is
organized. If, as is so often the case, we compress our heads down into
our spines, a whole series of compensatory tensions is created. If, on
the other hand, we can learn to allow our head to balance lightly on top
of our spine as nature intended, our built in “anti-gravity” reflex is
activated and our body is encouraged to release previously held
restrictions.

Aromatherapy
Essential oils can be used in different ways, including massage, bathing and inhalation. When essential oils are inhaled, olfactory receptor cells are stimulated and the impulse is transmitted to the emotional centre of the brain, or “limbic system”. The limbic system is connected to areas of the brain linked to memory, breathing, and blood circulation, as well as the endocrine glands that regulate hormone levels in the body. The properties of the oil, the fragrance and its effects, determine stimulation of these systems. When used in massage, essential oils are not only inhaled, but absorbed through the skin as well. They penetrate the tissues and find their way into the bloodstream where they are transported to
the organs and systems of the body. Different oils are thought to act on the body in different ways, having a relaxing, energizing, calming or uplifting effect.

Hypnotherapy
A form of therapy in which the use of hypnotism constitutes the core of the treatment, it uses the power of the mind to help heal physical as well as emotional problems. It helps the patient discover the underlying emotional and psychological causes to their ailments.
Hypnotherapy is particularly useful in helping people to deal with stress and anxiety related conditions such as panic attacks, phobias, insomnia and other emotional problems like depression, lack of confidence and self esteem, etc.
Hypnotherapy can also help you change unwelcome habits such as smoking and nail-biting, and deal with problems relating to food and body image. This is achieved by finding out what the real problem is and finding better, more positive ways to meet your needs
Hypnosis is not a state of sleep but a state of relaxation varying from light to deep. Tests have shown that a person is neither unconscious, nor asleep. Tests have shown that a person in deep hypnosis is in a state of deep relaxation and engaged in normal mental activity.

Reflexology
A form of complementary therapy in which the nerve endings primarily in the feet are stimulated by specific massage techniques to effect changes in another part of the body and thereby create health and help overcome disease. is a form of complementary medicine and involves a method of treatment using massage to reflex areas found in the feet and the hands. Most commonly, the feet are used as the areas to be treated. In the feet, there are reflex areas corresponding to all the parts of the body and these areas are arranged in such a way as to form a map of the body in the feet with the right foot corresponding to the right side of the body and the left foot to the left side of the body. Thus, it becomes possible to treat the whole body and the treat the body as a whole. This latter point is an important factor of a natural therapy and allows not only symptoms to be treated but also their causes.
