MANY ROADS TO ROME and HEALTH
C. Norman Shealy, M.D., Ph.D.
One of the primary reactions to stress of all kinds is muscle tension. And anything that helps reduce muscle tension helps relieve the negative and continuing effects of stress.
Yoga, Qi Gong, Tai Chi, Astrological Tai Chi, Deep Breathing, Autogenic Training, Progressive Relaxation, The Relaxation Response, The Shealy RelaxMate, and relaxing music all assist in stress reduction.
Hot soaks, especially with magnesium chloride in the water, castor oil baths, saunas and some essential oils add another dimension of detoxification and relaxation. And just application of Magnesium Lotion is an essential since most people, especially those under extra stress, are deficient in magnesium. For many individuals, Air Bliss provides the physiologic foundation for relief from the stress of anxiety.
The spiritual approaches of Therapeutic Touch, Reiki, Healing Touch, and Neoreichian Therapy add both intention and physical energy by another person.
Perhaps the strongest muscle tension relaxation is that done actively by a trained therapist-Massage, Myofascial Release (especially SchnelleWork), Sports Massage, Rolfing and HellerWork.
If everyone took advantage of these safe, effective and pleasurable stress reducers and health enhancers on a regular basis, at least 75 to 80% of all illnesses could be avoided or significantly improved, without drugs or surgery.
