Oriental Medicine, which includes the practice of Acupuncture, herbal medicine, moxibustion, tuina (therapeutic bodywork), nutrition, exercise and meditation is a safe and effective form of medical treatment that has evolved into a complete holistic health care system encompassing a variety of traditional health care therapies that have been used for more than 3,000 years to diagnose and treat illness, prevent disease and improve well-being.

Other modalities of Oriental Medicine are:

  • Electroacupuncture: "E-stim" or the use of fine micro-current technology
  • Lifestyle Coaching, Dietary and Nutritional Counseling
  • Cupping:  this employs a glass, bamboo or plastic cup to stimulate blood and Qi
  • Tai Chi:  Medicine in Motion
  • Qi Gong:  Coordination of Breath, Posture & fluid movement for Health  
  • Meditation:  Medicine for the Mind
  • Tuina: Chinese massage therapy & various therapeutic bodywork
  • In order to promote the body’s natural ability to heal itself, Chinese Medicine focuses on restoring and maintaining the natural balance of your body’s Qi or vital life force energy. When Qi is balanced and flowing, the body is in good health.  Dis-ease and illness occur when the energy is either stagnant, obstructed, deficient, or in any way out of balance.

  • Acupuncture  can be used during pregnancy to maintain the body's optimal Qi or energy level. There are so many changes that the body is going through and acupuncture is used to maintain a balance within all the energy meridians. It is extremely effective relieving nausea and vomiting during pregnancy. Other symptoms that acupuncture can alleviate include: heartburn, constipation, varicose veins, hemorrhoids, edema, sinusitis, anxiety, depression, insomnia, anemia, fatigue, musculoskeletal pain and urinary tract infections. It can be used safely as an alternative induction method that has no side effects.

Moxibustion


"Moxa" is a form of heat therapy in which dried plant material, from the sage family, smolder near the proximity of the surface of the skin.  Moxa invigorates the energetic pathways of the body. The term is derived from the Japanese herb “mogusa”, known as mugwort, and the Latin ” bustion” meaning burning.

  • Moxibustion warms and invigorates the flow of Qi in the body, dispels certain pathogenic factors & increases blood flow.  It is very nourishing and can create a deep relaxation response.  Moxibustion in conjunction with Acupuncture can be very effective for many diseases including back pain, sciatica, muscle stiffness, headaches, arthritis, tendinitis, circulation problems, female health problems as menstrual cramps, irregular periods and infertility. It can be very effective in the treatment of cold constitutional conditions. 

Cupping 

Cupping is one of the oldest methods of traditional Chinese medicine. This healing technique consists of creating a vacuum by placing a cupping glass on the skin. The cup creates suction on the skin stimulating blood to flow to the area where the cup is placed. Quite often used on athletes and martial artists as displayed in the Olympics. 

Cupping helps relieve inflammation in the area of the body were the treatment is applied. Chinese cupping treatment is commonly used to treat respiratory conditions like bronchitis or pneumonia.  Research shows cupping can ease muscular tension, facilitate mobility, alleviate spasms, soften restrictions in connective tissue and increase blood flow especially in the back.  Cupping can be used during pregnancy to purify the blood and drain the lymphatic system. 

Cupping Can Be A Helpful Complementary Treatment For:
  • Pneumonia, bronchitis, asthma or congestion 
  • Lower Back Pain / Neck & Shoulder Pain 
  • Sciatica or Sacral Iliac Joint Issues
  • Stress and Tension Headaches

Using the vibrational power of water infused with plants, flower essences, sacred incense, prayers and intention, this cleansing can make a huge difference in your life. It can liberate you from the past and reconnect you to your soul force.

A Spiritual Bath shifts you. It uplifts your spirit by washing away negativity, grief, stagnation and world-weariness, and removes obstacles that block success in achieving your goals and desires. Cleansing breaks the cycle of the ‘monkey mind’ and gives you space and clarity to put things into perspective.  Holistic by its very nature, Maya medicine is classified as a medico-religious healing tradition, taking into account not only the physical ills of the body but also their effects on the spirit. The Maya recognize diseases of the soul as well as the body and are aware of the connection between spiritual and physical causes of illness.

  • Manifest dreams and long buried desires

MEDITATION & YOGA 


Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction brings together mindfulness meditation and yoga. Although MBSR is a training with potential benefits for all types of participants, historically, students have suffered from a wide range of chronic disorders and diseases. 

Mindfulness practice is ideal for cultivating greater awareness of the unity of mind and body, as well as of the ways the unconscious thoughts, feelings, and behaviors can undermine emotional, physical, and spiritual health.  The mind is known to be a factor in stress and stress-related disorders, and meditation has been shown to positively effect a range of autonomic physiological processes, such as lowering blood pressure and reducing overall arousal and emotional reactivity. In addition to mindfulness practices, MBSR uses yoga to help reverse the prevalence of disuse atrophy from our culture's largely sedentary lifestyle, especially for those with pain and chronic illnesses.

Holistic Pelvic CareTM


Holistic Pelvic Care consists of physical and energetic tools designed to evaluate, restore balance, and enhance vibrant flow in the pelvic bowl of the female body by working with a person's core patterns.

--Tami Lynn Kent



Holistic Pelvic Care™ is a gentle, internal pelvic bodywork pioneered by Portland-based women’s health physical therapist Tami Kent.  Just as other major muscles of the body can become tightened, stressed and imbalanced from overwork, so too can the internal muscles of the pelvic bowl become imbalanced from illness, stress, or trauma.


Holistic Pelvic Care™ combines gentle, internal massage with energetic and emotional balancing techniques. These techniques help reestablish strength and synergy in the pelvic musculature, increase blood flow to the pelvic organs, and help decrease problematic symptoms.


Who benefits from this treatment?

Any woman who is looking to reestablish a connection to her pelvic bowl or simply nurture her female body in a holistic way may benefit from one or more treatment sessions. However, specific concerns that may be aided by Holistic Pelvic Care™ include (but are not limited to):

  • Painful sexual activity, intercourse, or sexual dysfunction
  • Urinary leakage or incontinence
  • Chronic bladder or vaginal infections
  • Fertility support
  • Preparing for conception/pregnancy
  • Postpartum complaints and recovery
  • Pelvic congestion
  • Uterine prolapse
  • Menstrual pain
  • History of pelvic trauma or abuse
  • Healing after pregnancy loss or abortion


What can you expect from treatment?

The first session is generally the longest (1.5 hour) where a brief history will be taken and where we will discuss your goals for treatment. This is also the time where we will discuss any questions or concerns you may have and review female anatomy and muscles. We will then move on to some basic external work and then, if you are comfortable, we may move on to internal work.  Internal work involves the therapist inserting a lubricated, gloved digit into the vagina and assessing the musculature and connective tissue.  Exercise and gentle massage techniques will then be initiated for the duration of the treatment session.
