Essential Self Massage DVD
Format: DVD (PAL) Language: English Duration: 62 minutes DVD Ref: BDV046 Ouch, that hurts! When you stub your toe you impulsively rub it - which increases the blood flow and relieves the pain. Your instincts have told you what to do to make yourself feel better. Helping yourself when you get small bruises with instant self-massage is easy, but what happens when you get a painful headache or migraine, or if you want to improve your health and energy levels? In such cases your instincts might fail you. You just don't know what to do The solution to optimal health lies in the body's ability to keep the channels of energy, or chi, clear and free-flowing. Tensions create tight muscles which cause stagnation and blockages throughout the body. It is this stagnation that contributes to many health conditions, from headaches to arthritis, to back pain and anxiety. This programme introduces you also to the ancient Chinese art of using finger pressure or acupressure. Following the model of meridians, or pathways of energy, acupressure is similar to acupuncture, but uses more gentle yet firm pressure of hands to stimulate the flow of energy and enhance your body's natural ability to heal itself. Using only your hands, you can now treat your body to a safe and effective way of releasing tension and preventing more serious conditions. "Knowing others is intelligence; knowing yourself is true wisdom. Mastering others is strength; mastering yourself is true power." - Lao-Tzu.
