Intuitive Mandala #42 - Shelley KlammerToday People everywhere are struggling through life with damaged emotions. They've endured a lot of negative things, causing untold damage that needs to be dealt with. But all too often, these hurts are simply swept under the rug in an attempt to make them go away. What does being healed mean to you? How much does the mind truly affect your ability to recover after an illness, undergoing surgery or suffering a loss? The mind-body connection has been studied and documented for many years. Research shows that a correlation between the desire to heal and actual healing exists -- and can be enhanced if the mind is engaged in positive way toward that goal. Here’s more on how you can use your mind to heal your body.

In addition to our wide array of integrative healing therapies, we’ve now added Hijama Integrative Therapy (HIT) to our line of services.

Based on the ancient principles of traditional Chinese medicine, most people are familiar with the cupping procedure of HIT, but that’s only one part of the therapy process. Our HIT includes additional components for diet, exercise and supplementation to shore up stagnate chi or “life energy” that the ancients felt was the cause of all dis-ease.

The cupping portion of the therapy involves massaging the affected area with black seed or olive oil. In “dry” HIT, one or several lightly heated glass cups are placed on the skin with a mild suction applied from a regulated electronic monitor. The cups remain in place for 5-20 minutes. “Massage” HIT involves using one or more of the cups to knead the skin and underlying tissues. 

“Wet” HIT, also known as Sunnah, includes removing stagnate subcutaneous blood and toxins from just beneath the skin. In this instance, the glass cups are removed after only a few minutes. Tiny surface scratches are made to the affected area and the cups are replaced for more time. Stagnate blood and toxins are drawn up into the cups and discarded after treatment.
