Information on Shiatsu from Martin-Shiatsu is a Japanese form of massage or acupressure where I try and meet the person on the right level, not unlike a meeting between two friends. We use palms, thumbs, fingers and sometimes elbows to move the energy...
When we feel seen and listened to and met we tend to feel happy. That is one aspect. The other is that with Shiatsu, as with Reiki and Spiritual Healing we work with energy or Qi. Now, everything in the universe is made of energy or is energy. This energy flows in the human body via the Acupuncture Meridians according to Chinese Medicine and by working with the Meridians and Acu points we can stimulate and change the energy and its flow in the human bodymind.
Shiatsu is very good at supporting the correct flow of energy in ourselves and it can provide a time out, where the bodymind can rest. As we know, resting is important for the self healing properties to kick in more clearly.
Shiatsu can also help with nausea caused by Chemo, Plantar Fasciitis, PMS, IBS, and many other imbalances.
Other topics we covered on the night:
Using Flax or Linseed powder together with Yogurt in order to support the healing after Radiotherapy and using 70g of Flaxseed powder daily has been shown in a Canadian Study to reduce or halt the growth of breast tumours.
Salvestrol: you can find some info on this on www.canceractive.co.uk website. It seems a very logical and promising way forward in cancer treatment.
Raw food diet: is important to feed the body the right stuff before during and after cancer treatment. Together with Mistletoe it can help heal the body.
