Essential Oils, Herbal Medicine, Gemstone & Dietary Therapies
Diet and nutrition are the foundations of wellness. Dietary therapy in Chinese Medicine is customized to your individual needs and is crucial in the treatment of any chronic disorder.
Essential Oils and Gemstones are potent forms of herbal medicine because they each resonate directly with your essence. ‘Essence’ in Chinese Medicine, also referred to as the ‘Jing’, corresponds to your body’s deepest energetic level. In scientific terms, Essence or Jing relates to your body’s genetic material and the DNA.
Gemstones are the most potent form of herbal medicine as they are substances that evolve and transform over time without degenerating like plant and animal substances and can therefore imbue more permanent healing.
Essential Oil therapy is an ideal treatment for addressing emotional and mental imbalances because the oils directly transmit through the olfactory system to impact your limbic brain where traumatic memories are stored.
The word “Qi” (or “chi”) means “life force” or "vital energy" of the body and the word “Gong” means "skill" that is cultivated through steady practice. Thus, Qi Gong means “the skill of cultivating energy.”
The practice involves gentle, rhythmic exercises combined with simple breathing techniques to relieve stress, support detoxification, regulate your immune system and thereby increase your body’s innate healing abilities. The exercise routines can be learned easily and are perfect for people of all ages and fitness levels. Classes are held two Saturdays of every month 9:30am-10:30am with Salvador Cefalu, M.S., L.Ac. $20 drop-in. Click here to register.
A gentle blend of Yin-Yang Yoga with Meditation and insights based on the principles of Chinese Medicine. Yin Yoga increases flexibility through long held postures that stretch the connective tissue, circulating blood, fluid and energy through the meridians. This calms your nervous system while freeing the hips, pelvis and lower back release to bring greater body-mind comfort for your daily activities and meditation practices. Yang Yoga is more active and designed to strengthen the muscles and increase your endurance. Learn more at http://www.setarehmoafi.com/yogaintegration.
