  A COURSE IN MIRACLES     

A Course in Miracles teaches that the way to remember God is by undoing guilt and forgiving others. The course focuses on the healing of relationships and oneself by removing blocks to the awareness of Love's presence.

Though Christian in statement, the theme is universal. Therefore, A Course in Miracles may be considered a course in universal and spiritual psychotherapy.

 ACUPRESSURE   

Acupressure is based on an Oriental philosophy that good health develops when qi energy, the life force that flows within us, moves unobstructed through meridians, or energy pathways in our body. In acupressure, blocked energy points are simulated or dispersed using finger of hand pressure instead of needles as in traditional acupuncture. For definitions of the various forms of acupressure, see "Jin Shin Jyutsu," and "Shiatsu."

 ACUPUNCTURE    

Acupuncture has been practiced in China and neighboring countries for over 5000 years. It consists of the use of very fine needles and other devices to stimulate and/or balance the flow of energy (also called “chi” or electromagnetic currents) through channels or meridians in the body. Acupuncture is based on ancient Chinese ideas about the rhythm and harmony of the universe as a whole—the Tao—and the relationship of human beings to that universe. Health is viewed as a dynamic interaction between each individual’s inner environment and the exterior world. 

Traditionally, acupuncture was used preventatively to correct small imbalances in the inner environment before they became more serious and resulted in pain and disease. Today, this principle still holds true, although a person can benefit from acupuncture at any stage of the balance/imbalance continuum. Because this system of healing views the person as a whole entity, a sort of mini-universe within themselves, body/mind and spirit are interconnected. Healing on one level flows into other levels. Most people experience a unique sense of well-being and renewal from treatment.

 AMMA THERAPY      

“Am-ma” is an ancient Chinese word that means “push-pull.” It is used to describe a classical Oriental bodywork technique that many believe predates acupuncture. AMMA therapy, like acupuncture, focuses on the balance and movement of energy within the body. Whereas the acupuncturist inserts needles into the energetic pathways to stimulate or move energy (chi), the AMMA therapist relies on his or her hands to promote energetic flow within the body. AMMA therapy utilizes a variety of techniques including acupressure, reflexology, deep tissue massage and the use of herbal liniments as appropriate.

Amma therapy is a powerful therapy for both the prevention and treatment of many kinds of diseases including lower back pain, stiff neck and shoulders, discomfort associated with the common cold, sinus congestion, tension headaches, premenstrual discomfort, circulatory disorders and arthritis.

 ANGELS      

Angels are always available to help us create heaven here on earth. Through step by step meditations, one can be brought into alignment with the angels and can journal their messages. There are angels for every occasion, including personal angels, angel guardians, archangels, nature angels, prosperity angels, healers, rescuers and protectors. Angels’ energy reach into each individual and can have a profound affect on our personal lives. At times, negative thoughts and feelings such as fear, guilt, resentment, or self-doubt can block angelic vibrations. One can learn to ground and release negative energies, opening oneself to the positive affects of angels.

 APPLIED KINESIOLOGY      


Applied Kinesiology is a branch of chiropractic which emphasizes correction of health through the balancing of a person's chemistry, structure, and emotions. The system, which focuses on the whole person, sees a person's spine and health as totally interconnected. Its practitioners utilize manual muscle testing as a measuring tool which shows where a problem is and how to correct it. They may incorporate nutrition, herbs, craniosacral therapy, meridian therapy, massage, or Bach flower remedies depending on the needs of the particular patient.

There have been several off-shoots of Applied Kinesiology since its development in the 1960s, including Systemic Repatterning. 
For more information, call Dr. Richard Bloom (845)425-9575.

 AROMATHERAPY        --see also Essential Oils

Virtually unknown in the United States until recently, aromatherapy is one of the fastest growing forms of the healing arts in this country. In Europe, where it re-emerged more than 60 years ago, aromatherapy is actually practiced by doctors, nurses and other health professionals. It is even taught to medical students in France.

Essential oils are highly concentrated vegetal extracts that contain hormones, vitamins, antibiotics and antiseptics. They are the most concentrated forms of herbal energy and their affect can be medicinal, meditative, restorative and relaxing. The aromatherapist chooses the specific essential oil for the client’s individual needs as required. The aromatherapist blends and dilutes the appropriate mix of concentrated essential oils with a “carrier oil.” This mixture is then soothingly applied to the body by way of a gentle massage.

 ASTROLOGY     

Astrology uses a birth chart to map the positions of the planets, relative to the location and moment of birth. The interpretation of the chart incorporates the angular relationships between the planets and the signs of the zodiac, the area of the chart in which they fall and other symbolic indicators to examine the different experiences and psychology of the individual.

The pertinent information regarding birth time and location is given to a trained astrologist, who helps the client to explore deeper individual potential and meaning, to see how disparate aspects of the personality may be integrated, and to find ways to draw the greatest fulfillment from the energies symbolized in the chart.

 AURA IMAGING       

Breakthrough biofeedback technology combines vibrational medicine and color psychology with computer science. Now everyone can see what psychics and clairvoyants have been privy to—one’s own dynamic energy field.

A sensor detects and measures one’s bio-energy or emotional energetic activity, and correlates the data to specific energetic patterns which are then displayed as a colorful representation of the aura live and in motion on screen. One’s physical, emotional, mental and spiritual constitution can be understood through understanding the chakra activity as well as the colors and their qualities. For instance, red in the heart area means courage, blue coming into the auric field indicates that the person relates by communicating his or her feelings and is very open to other people’s emotions. Yellow in the third chakra or solar plexus shows a strong sense of identity, while white appearing in that area shows a need for more self-acknowledgement.

Aura and chakra analysis helps one to discover how he or she processes information and emotions, how to tap into one’s creative potential and what one needs to energize and balance oneself. Healers and therapists are using this fantastic visual tool to monitor the changes that occur in a client’s aura and chakras during the session and to validate the effectiveness of their work.

Live and instantaneous visual feedback is very healing in itself. Seeing our colors and energetic patterns change and brighten can help us understand more about our mind-body connection and move towards a more authentic expression of ourselves.

 AURIC HEALING         

The human body is constantly nourished by the Human Energy Field (HEF), more commonly known as the Aura. The health of the field and physical body are intimately related. Distortions or disturbances in one can offset the balance of the other and this, over time, causes disease. Auric healing is a modality for creating balance with the HEF, which in turn facilitates physical health. Using a hands-on technique, trained practitioners charge, clear, structure and balance the field. The result is a peaceful balance and a dynamic state of health across physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels.

 AYURVEDA        

Ayurveda means “Science of Life,” and one of the oldest systems of medicine. It is a preventative system from India that looks for the underlying unity in nature.

Maharishi Ayur-Veda, formulated in the early 1980's by Maharishi Mehesh Yogi, brings together modern research and the insights of ayurvedic theory, which maintains that we are guided by a network of inner intelligence that determines whether we are sick or well. This intelligence lies deep enough to alter the patterns that make up our basic constitution.

When we become ill, according to Ayurveda, our basic constitution or Body Type is out of balance. The Ayurvedic body type corresponds to nature's elements of air, water, and fire, and our personal realities are generated from the creative core within.

By knowing one’s body type, an Ayurvedic physician can design an individualized program to help that person notice and obey his or her correct instinct for self-healing. This is done by following specific body type diets, stress management techniques, exercises and yoga, following seasonal and daily routines, self-massage, the use of herbs, aroma, color and sound therapies, and most importantly, the use of meditation. According to Ayurveda, meditation is medicine which takes the self home to the deepest area inside oneself that is untouched by illness.
