Following on from our review of The Shakit Mat we been asked by a number of people to write about the ways the Shakti Mat can be used, or how does it assist with a range of conditions such as pain relief. In this article we shall expand on the original post to explore the ways it can be used both at and away from home. We shall also look at who can benefit from its use and what sort of benefits you will get.
To start the benefits I have experienced include improved relaxation, circulation and sleep. I have a small tear in my shoulder joint and as you may or may not know that area does not get a lot of blood supply which slows the healing process. So I will frequently position myself so that my shoulder is stimulated as much as possible. After using the mat the pain is always better. I have laid on it and sat on it and stood on it and had it behind me on the lounge. I routinely go to sleep on it – though I have not slept a night through on it yet – though lots report they do.
As a natural health practitioner I am always researching for the best way to help patients. I came across this article – Experiments Point A New Understanding Of Cancer from Health By The Bay where they talk about a presentation from Researcher Mina Bissell on her view of how cancer growth. What provoke me to write this post is that as a society we have learned to fear and were led to believe that we do not have any control over cancer and how it gets activated. Fear not any more read on…
A while back we posted an article called “What is Resveratrol” which is a polyphenol with important anti inflammatory and antioxidant properties that is produced when plants are under attack from bacteria or fungi. At the time we were discussing how researchers were correlating the presence of Resveratrol with the so called ‘French paradox’ diet.
I just had to write this post – what a few days/daze it’s been. Since returning to Sydney in 2009 I started using EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique or tapping) again. It’s a technique I learned and discarded some years back because (at the time) it didn’t fit with who I was or what I was doing. Then, as is often the case when one rediscovers something, I came to it through ‘desperation’. You see I was ‘stuck’ unable to shift a problem with one of our kids so I decided to try EFT; why not? I’d had run out of options and it was 3:00am – where do you find new options at that hour of the morning? Lo and behold, we had a breakthrough. I began to ask myself – had the other things kicked in? Was it luck? What really happened? So in pursuit of clarity, I decided to experiment on myself and of course the family I was so pleased with the outcomes I have (re) introduced EFT into clinic.
And while am happily use it in clinic, I remained dissatisfied with the standard explanation. I know EFT works, I use it. I never use anything in clinic I have not already had success with – so I know it works. And Aussies are a cynical bunch. As a cultural group, we seem to want (need even…) a ‘plausible’ or rational explanation for things (like either of those terms are straight forward). And descriptions like emotional acupuncture leave most Aussies shaking their heads…especially when you ask them to ‘tap themselves’ and say things like I honour and accept myself…Finally, I have some new ways of explaining why EFT works and the explanation should satisfy even the most sceptical person because it’s based on research.Read More
After I posted the Vision Board – Can You Create Your Future On A Board? I realised I had much more information than 1 post could handle – even for me In fact this could turn into a mini thesis on vision boards and how they can help you, if I let it…Read More
