Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.

We may experience painful joints, creaky knees, bladder leakage, loose skin, vaginal dryness, frequent bathroom urges, groin pain, painful intercourse, or low back pain. Many of these
The origin of Qigong can be traced to China, as far back as 2,500 B.C., where it has been widely practiced due to its therapeutic and rejuvenating properties. The word Qigong is an amalgam of the word “Gong”, which means to cultivate; and, of the word “Qi”, which means to activate the body’s mental and physiologic activities.

How would I treat a patient with interstitial cystitis? To me, this is like fibromyalgia of the bladder. First I want to localize the inflammatory source by addressing the gut (GALT and MALT).
