Wellness:  Complementary HealthcarePeggy Verret, MA, CHTP

Complementary Healthcare, a thriving branch of today’s pluralistic medical system, is increasingly making its presence known in the local urban and suburban health arenas. Once considered adversarial, herbalists, body workers, energy and movement therapists are now found in various mainstream facilities such as health clubs, wellness centers and spas. While some Complementary Therapies are integrated into the healthcare professional’s (allied health, nursing, psychotherapy, medicine) prevailing services, other modalities are found in single or multi-disciplined private practices.

Site:  New Members List

We have just revised the CompWellness Network Practitioner Members list. It is now ordered by Modality versus last name, making it easier to find a Practitioner of a particular type. We are also using the Practitioner’s name and the Modality name to access the list from the revised eGuide chapters, allowing us to update the website more often and more accurately. Scan through and see for yourself.

eGuide:  New eGuide Chapters

We are using some of the new chapters from the soon-to-be-printed Complementary Healing Guide in the New Orleans area to update our online Complementary Healing eGuide. See the NEWchapters as they appear, and those marked New Additions as they are modified.

eGuide:  Aquatic TherapyJulia Young Hayes, MEd, LMT, CPOI, Aquassage: Massage/Aquatic Services

Aquatics, or Water Therapy, provides a multidisciplinary approach to therapy and rehabilitation. Healthcare professionals can enhance their chosen work by including water therapy in their practices. For example, Aquatic Massage Therapy is an excellent means of relieving stress and revitalizing tired muscles.

eGuide:  FeldenkraisEllen Soloway, Guild Certified Feldenkrais Practitioner

The Feldenkrais Method® helps people move with more ease, efficiency and comfort through the educational powers of movement and awareness. By teaching coordination and skill, the method covers a broad range of human actions. It covers simple important human activities – standing, walking, sitting, reaching, balancing and running. It also covers complex actions – sports performance, speech, voice, breath control and posture improvement. It works whether you are an individual with a disability, a superbly coordinated person, or simply a person seeking relief from the common stresses of living. In brief, the Feldenkrais Method teaches you how to improve your ability to function in daily life.

eGuide:  Oriental Healing ArtsOrisia Haas, OMD

The legacy of the Oriental Healing Arts embraces more than 5,000 years and embodies the philosophies and practices of Traditional Chinese Medicine as well as the healing disciplines of other Eastern cultures. More than one billion people around the world use Oriental Healing practices daily.

Long before the word “holistic” was used in the West, that concept formed the basis for all Oriental Medicine and healing practices. There is a natural energy, order and harmony both in the external world around us and the world within our body. Recognizing that harmony and understanding how to maintain or re-claim it is the key to vibrant health in the fullest sense.

To find a location for flotation tanks in your area, enter “Flotation Tank” into your favorite search engine – AltaVista.com, Mama.com, SavvySearch.com, MSN.com – and look for an association or US manufacturer that can lead you to one. You may be able to refine your search by adding Texas or Spa.

I am looking for holistic gym – would you have this information?
