Energy healing: a complementary treatment for orthopaedic and other conditions.
Complementary and alternative therapies continue to grow in popularity among healthcare consumers. Among those modalities is energy healing (EH) (Eisenberg et al., 1998). EH is an adjunctive treatment that is noninvasive and poses little downside risk to patients. Well more than 50 major hospitals and clinics throughout the United States offer EH to patients (DiNucci, research table on healthcare facilities that offer Reiki, unpublished data, 2002). The National Institutes of Health is funding numerous EH studies that are examining its effects on a variety of conditions, including temporomandibular joint disorders, wrist fractures, cardiovascular health, cancer, wound healing, neonatal stress, pain, fibromyalgia, and AIDS (National Institutes of Health, 2004a). Several well-designed studies to date show significant outcomes for such conditions as wound healing (Grad, 1965) and advanced AIDS (Sicher, Targ, Moore, & Smith, 1998), and positive results for pain and anxiety (Aetna IntelliHealth, 2003a; Wardell, Weymouth, 2004), among others (Gallob, 2003). It is also suggested that EH may have positive effects on various orthopaedic conditions, including fracture healing, arthritis, and muscle and connective tissue (Prestwood, 2003). Because negative outcomes risk is at or near zero throughout the literature, EH is a candidate for use on many medical conditions.

Insomnia, which is the chronic inability to sleep, can be affected by the use of hypnosis. Normally, the inability to sleep is a result of the failure of the brain to switch functions from those needed during the awake state to those needed for a restful sleep. Through the use of hypnosis a person can shut off the parts of the brain that are not needed for sleep.
In order to understand this, it is helpful to look at the brain as an organ with many parts. At any given time these individual parts are either active, inactive, or idle. For any mental function a combination of these parts,...
TMJ is the acronym for temporomandibular joint. Frequently people say that they have TMJ. However, what they actually mean is that they have TMD, which means temporomandibular disorder. The TMJ is the hinge joint that connects the lower jaw to temporal bone of the skull. TMD occurs when there are problems with the jaw, jaw joint, and the surrounding muscles.
TMD can occur due to numerous causes. These include accidents, clinching or grinding the teeth, arthritis, or stress. While the use of hypnotherapy normally focuses on stress alleviation, it should not be ruled out as part of the...
It seems that all sports are more in your mind than one would first think. So, it is more than just developing muscles and endurance. If you are going to golf like Tiger Woods, Lee Trevino, or Sam Sneed, you must develop your mind as well. Remaining calm at all times appears to be a critical requirement. However, it is much more than that. Your mind and body are intricately linked. This means that for every aspect of the game from your grip, your swing, negotiating hazards, and your putt, there are corresponding neural networks in your brain that must be developed. Believe it or not,...
