It is the ability to work within the body’s framework to move the life force (Chi) to un-block malfunctions and / or dis-ease in the body: Using the fingertips to ‘feel’ the pulsations of energy moving this energy where it is needed. Learning to sense a weakened organ or system in the body’s inner life-line. It is Acupressure to some degree. SYSTEMATIC BIO ENERGETICS and Acupressure an ancient Therapy for tension and pain relief.
Have you ever hit your finger with a hammer or closed it in a door? What was the first thing you did? Right, you held onto it and squeezed it. You put pressure on the injury. Perhaps you have had a headache and put your fingers to your temples to relieve the pain, somehow it seemed to help. You really do not know why, it just does and it seemed the thing to do at the time. The impulse that makes you double over and press your stomach in response to abdominal cramps is another example of the instinctive practice of acupressure. It may well be the most ancient form of physical therapy.
Over 5000 years ago, the Chinese discovered certain points on the body which, when pressed, punctured or heated, had beneficial effects on certain ailments. Through trial and error and time more and more points were discovered that not only alleviated pain but also influenced the functioning of internal organs. More recently, high-tech equipment has scientifically revealed that these points actually have a higher electrical conductivity on the surface of the skin.
In traditional Chinese medicine, methods range from the most natural to the most intrusive. The most down-to-earth, natural healing methods, such as breathing exercises, dietary therapy, acupressure and herbology, were and are still used as a people’s form of hands-on healing. If more treatment was needed, acupuncture and chiropractic were used as more complex and manipulative, followed by drugs and surgery, which used the most drastic interventions in last -resort medicine. It should still be this way today! However people use the drastic form of healing first and as a last resort will try the natural way to help the body to heal.
It’s hard for people to understand how or why the body heals by just touching it. We do not feel it’s necessary to understand this concept, just accept it. It is a natural and wonderful way of helping one another. When certain points on the body are touched they connect with a reflex of the pain, along with muscle tension or trauma that has been stored in the body for a long time. This causes a release and the body can heal on its own. Acupuncture and acupressure use the same meridian points. The fundamental distinction lies in the needles used in acupuncture and the gentle but firm pressure of acupressure. Although the older of the two techniques, acupressure tended to be overlooked as the Chinese developed more “technological” methods for stimulating points with needles and electricity. However, using the power and sensitivity of the human hand and the mind, acupressure continues to be more effective in relieving tension related ailment in self-treatment and in preventive health care.
Many ailments and dis-ease can be the result of too much stress challenging the body’s balancing systems beyond their limits. The resulting tension and internal stress inhibit the body’s ability to cope effectively with the disrupting condition. To relax muscular tension and balance the vital forces of the body’s homeostasis specific points and meridians, are used.
SYSTEMATIC BIO ENERGETICS practitioner’s consider symptoms to be an expression of the condition of the person as a whole. Thus, when SYSTEMATIC BIO ENERGETICS is used as a holistic approach, it works before the constrictions and toxins have caused damage to the internal organs.
It is our belief that tension is a stagnation of the bodily flows: the nerves, meridians, lymphatic ducts and blood vessels. Lack of exercise, a poor diet, alcohol and drugs all contribute significantly to this stagnation. Emotional repression, neurotic habits, as well as the common stresses of day to day life can cause blocks in the life flow of energy. Whether conscious or not, lock the homeostasis mechanism of the body, restricting proper functioning. Headaches are one example of the body’s warning signals. They indicate muscular tension and possible oxygen deprivation in the brain. Instead of taking aspirin to repress such a signal by cutting off the body’s natural alarm system, Systematic Bio Energetics technique releases the tight, constricted muscles to correct the imbalance and its cause. There are many possible causes of headaches. These can include emotional stress, chronic shoulder and neck tension, which can partially block the circulation of the blood to the head; meridian imbalances; cervical misalignment, which creates strain on the head / neck muscles and pinched nerves; intestinal congestion. In extreme cases, headaches can signify more serious conditions.
A number of chemical changes take place in the body during a Systematic Bio Energetics treatment. One such change deals with the sedation of pain. The body produces its own painkillers, known as endorphins., which are five to ten times more powerful than morphine. Endorphins are produced by the pituitary gland and can inhibit the transmission of the pain signals through the spinal cord.
Studies have revealed that pain signals travel along the nerve pathways to the dorsal horn of the spinal cord, beginning a complicated reflex action. From the spinal cord the impulses is relayed to the thalamus, where the sensations of heat, cold, pain, and touch are recognized. The thalamus forwards the impulse along to the cerebral cortex where the intensity and location of the pain is recognized. The brain then sends signals back through the spinal cord to release endorphins. However, according to the “gate control theory”, the nervous system can respond to only a limited amount of sensory information at one time. When the system becomes overloaded it short-circuits or closes a gate, reducing the amount of sensory information available for processing. The application of Systematic Bio Energetics encourages the brain to produce more endorphins while the pressure also acts to confuse the body with too many sensations to respond to, forcing the body to close the “Pain Gates”. This interrupts the pain cycle, eases the pain and helps the body to relax.
The practice of my work has developed primarily through a combination of instinct and hands-on experience. Its principles and healing techniques have also been influenced by the gift of healing through my near-death experience which enabled me to “feel or see” trigger points and use the ancient meridians as well as the sensory and autonomic nervous system to move this natural energy to an area that is blocked or lacks the impulse to stimulate its self to heal. Acupressure is an ancient art in itself, however, like most practitioners in this field of work, I have developed a more advance method of using it. I feel I have used the best of both worlds.
What makes Systematic Bio Energetics different from other energy work:
Systematic Bio Energetics works inside the physical body (by way of the etheric body) using the minds eye to “see or sense” a malfunction or dis-ease. Knowing the anatomy of the body: what organs, glands, and the skeletal structure look like then using the mind’s eye to see the organ or gland and direct the energy form the hands to the points. Using the nervous systems, meridians and pressure points to facilitate healing. What sets it apart? Knowing the Body! The intent behind the energy movement!
Is Energy Real! How do I know I can make it work?
YES…! Energy is real! Have you ever looked up into the sun and then closed your eyes and saw spots? The energy that comes into your eyes from the sun affected the Optic Nerve in the eye causing energy to vibrate the nerve. I can also prove it to you in another way: take a red light bulb into a totally dark room, like yo
ur closet or bathroom and make sure there is no light is let in. Put the light into a small lamp and let your eyes get used to the red light. Then look down at your hands and you will see the energy field playing between your fingers. This is how I discovered that energy was real. You can pull the energy from around your fingers, stretch it and by wiggling your fingers the energy turns color!
You have an energy field…and by knowing where it is, and how to use it can help to balance a weakened energy circuit in a client that has a dis-ease or malfunction in their body. A Systematic Bio Energetics treatment is more than just acupressure. A treatment will include a counseling session to find the root cause of the malfunction in the body. Medical science no believes that over 90% of the physical dis-ease and medical symptoms are caused by stress and emotional trauma. So a practitioner will address these issues. We also treat the dietary situations of our clients. We work on sugar sensitivity and bring the body into a healthy well being. Treating Body Mind and Spirit.
