AWAKENING SPIRIT  - MARCELLA ROBINSON
stress relievers you may not have thought about:
Facial rejuvenation
techniques are abundant the one thing to remember about them is that when you treat the face you treat the body.  the meridians running through the face include the Stomach and  Large Intestine this automatically tell you digestive issues will be addressed.  The Gall Bladder and San Jato channels  are represented  effecting the Liver and water metabolism in the body with Small  Intestine and Urinary Bladder  areas of
the body which may be in pain such as the lower back, neck or shoulders. The Du and the Ren channels. which run through  the center line of the body addressing the spine and the abdomen and vital life energy.  So when you think of Facial Rejuvenation there are a a lot of other issues aside from wrinkles or  muscle tonification  that you will have addressed.  I have studied Facial rejuvenation with a number of teacher (Virginia Doran, Phylis Shaprio, Mei Zen, Jeffery Yuen, Professor Charles Mc Williams to name a few) and I am constantly amazed at the healing ability of the reflex zones of the face through these techniques. Not only does the client look good after the treatments but often they are amazed at other health issues that have been address due to the continued session of
treatments...the face reflects the conditions of the body and stress. the other thing is that you do not have to use needles to accomplish the goals of facial rejuvenation the Jade Energy and derma ray machines respectively break down metabolic waste then helps the lymphatic system to clear them out of the system tonifing facial muscles in the process.  Massage is also an effect
manor in doing the same.  utilizing different massage techniques over a period of time similar effects can be achieved.  The beauty of the three modalities being utilized over a period of time together with good nutrition and hydration not only effects the face it effects the whole body and when the body feels good you feel good.  Thus making it a body mind and spirit treatment, treating the full body. 
BACKACHES? LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT BACK ACHES!!!
 Just why are massage and acupuncture so good for stress related backaches
Considering what I just wrote about facial acupuncture massage and Jade treatments. Think about your back consider muscles, joints daily activity and emotions  Consider barometric  changes,  environmental postural changes, social stress factors. Have  you changed your exercise routine, purchased a new car or piece of furniture, taken on a new physical task or changed jobs. Any one or more of these things can contribute to back pain.  Traumatic accidents whether suffered recently or in the distant past can be trigured by any of these factors.

ABDOMINAL MASSAGE AND DIAGNOSIS
I KNOW YOU HAVE HEARD THE EXPRESSION "MY STOMACH FEELS LIKE IT IS TIED UP IN KNOTS!"
AND SOME INDIVIDUALS  HAVE EXPRESSED THE SMALL INTESTINE IS LIKE  A SECOND BRAIN, BECAUSE OF ITS ASSIMILATION OF NUTRIENTS WHICH FEED THE BRAIN.
THE EXPRESSION  "MY STOMACH FEELS LIKE IT IS TIED UP IN KNOTS."  REFLECTS THE EMOTIONAL RESPONSE WE FEEL IN OUR ABDOMEN THROUGH AN INTRICATE NETWORK OF NERVES, BLOOD VESSELS, LYMPHATICS AND ORGAN SYSTEMS. OUR RESPONSE TO OUR DAILY LIFE IS IN FACT RELATED TO OUR DIGESTIVE SYSTEM. WHEN THIS DELICATE BALANCE IS STRESSED IN ANY WAY  THE RESULTS IS REFLECTED NOT ONLY IN OUR DAILY ELIMINATION BUT IN THE STRUCTURAL TENSION WITHIN THIS NETWORK.  IN ORIENTAL MEDICINE THERE IS A FUNDAMENTAL BELIEF THAT EMOTIONS ARE THE CAUSE OF OUR ILLNESSES.IF WE CAN RECOGNIZE AND ACCEPT THE EMOTION THAT IS CAUSING DIS-EASE, IN DOING SO MOVE BEYOND ITS CONFINES. THEN WE CAN IN AFFECT FREE OUR ENERGY FLOW AND PROMOTE HEALING WITHIN.  DURING TREATMENT THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT CAN HAPPEN WE STOP LONG ENOUGH IN A STATE OF RELAXATION TO RECOGNIZE AND RELEASE HARMFUL EMOTIONS AND EMBRACE POSITIVE CHANGE.
 
JADE ENERGY
JADE Energy units combine multiple frequency modalities to jump start repair at the cellular level.
the jade utilizes micro-current, color, harmonic sound, and gemstone frequencies. It is the only device in the world that has all of this technology bundled in the same unit.
The companion device to the Jade unit, the Derma Ray, is a high frequency energy light-emitting device. It is a cold laser technology.
The Benefits - Rejuvenation A Jade facial and/or full body treatment is a non-surgical, non-invasive technique that safely delivers a variety of benefits if you wish to attain a healthier and younger appearance. JADE Energy works by stimulating the cellular growth of new collagen, elasticin, and protein.
Rejuvenation offers a more positive perspective than does anti-aging. As we age, our electrical impulse slows down. Some of the outward signs are that skin loses its elasticity and suppleness, and muscle strength and tone decline. Because the level of the Jade’s frequencies mirrors your own body’s natural electrical impulses, skin and muscle tissue respond very quickly. A single treatment tightens existing collagen and stimulates new collagen growth. With a series of treatments, results can last for years provided you exercise and maintain a healthy lifestyle at a minimum.
In only a 20-minute session JADE can help:
  • Lift
  • Tone
  • Relieve muscle knots and spasms
  • Erase wrinkles and fine lines
  • Acne
  • Enlarged pores
  • Tension headaches
  • Promote restoration of the skin’s natural cellular activity
     Derma Ray can help:
  • Rosacea
  • Acne
  • Hyper-pigmentation
  • Lymphatic drainage
  • Oxygenation
  • Deep tissue massage
  • Sun-damaged skin
Each device can be used on its own; however, using both together enhances the synergy and offers optimal results.
I have found using the Derma Ray machine prior to a deep tissue massage enable the tissue to accept deep penetration into the muscle layers.  
The Combination of the Jade machine helps to relieve pain and to break down adhesion.  Whether it be in the back, shoulders, neck, or extremities.
I was recently able to use it in recovering from a broken wrist and can personally testify to its ability to break down scar tissue and aid in the rejuvenation process of the muscles.

WHAT CAN I DO TO HELP MYSELF
BREATH WORK
IT BEGINS  AND ENDS WITH YOU
there are many forms of breath work here is a simple way to begin
Imaging breathing like the waves at the shore of the ocean.
Lay back and take a deep breath hands on the top of you belly.
As you breathe in to the count of three allow your belly to raise like a wave.
Hold it at its full point then release to the count of 10 letting the belly soften and fall.  Think of a wave coming into shore up up up on the beach to where the sand crabs live. to where the white sand turns a shade  of tan.  Then breathe in once more, allowing you hands to feel like a surf board or a gull out on the water being lifted by that perfect wave.
if you take a moment in the day to feel this breath you can get to a point where you can feel this wave through out your body.  You can feel the oxygen that is in your blood move to the far reaches of your extremities otherwise known as relaxation.  Remember as you breath oxygen is being picked up by your blood in the lungs and being transported to your entire body.  Your diaphragm which is just below your lungs is being utilized to engage you lymphatic system to strengthen you immune system and to clean out metabolic waste to keep your body healthy, relaxed and free of pain. So breathing is not just pumping air in and out of your lungs it is a life force and the degree that you engage with it determines you state of being. Research is proving that breathing is our number one defense against pain so get addicted.
