A massage therapy technique that is specialized for use on infants. In most cases, oil or lotion is used as it would be with an adult.
This is a massage technique that is often taught to parents by certified professionals so that they may perform the massage on their own children. Lighter strokes and touch are used during infant massage and the technique is much more interactive than a traditional massage. Parent and infant are both engaged in the process which produces a great level of bonding between the caregiver and baby.
An infrared sauna is a type of sauna that uses light to create heat. These saunas are sometimes called far-infrared saunas — "far" describes where the infrared waves fall on the light spectrum. A traditional sauna uses heat to warm the air, which in turn warms your body.
The appeal of saunas in general, is that they cause reactions, such as vigorous sweating and increased heart rate, similar to those elicited by moderate exercise. An infrared sauna produces these results at lower temperatures than does a regular sauna, which makes it accessible to people who can't tolerate the heat of a conventional sauna. Several studies have looked at using infrared saunas in the treatment of chronic health problems, such as high blood pressure, congestive heart failure and rheumatoid arthritis, and found some evidence of benefit. However, larger and more rigorous studies are needed to confirm these results. On the other hand, no adverse effects have been reported with infrared saunas. So if you're considering trying a sauna for relaxation, an infrared sauna might be an option.
Jamu is the traditional herbal medicine of Indonesia. There are hundreds of recipes that can treat particular ailments, improve or maintain health and enhance beauty. While it is most commonly consumed as a beverage, it is also available in powders and capsules.
As most of the recipes and traditions were passed down through generations, there is very little written about the origins of Jamu, however there is evidence to suggest that Jamu was used as far back as 722 AD during a Hindu-Buddhist era. For example, in the relief of the Borobudur Temple there is a depiction of making and drinking herbal medicine for health. In the 17th century during the ruling of the Hindu Kingdom of Mataram, the princesses were said to use it for health and beauty. In the 19th century, some European doctors and scientists began to take notice of Jamu as a “cure all”. In ancient times, the herbs were ground and boiled to make the drink, today Jamu can be purchased in pill and powder form as manufacturing of the herbal beverages is big business. It is estimated that 49% of the population in Indonesia consume it regularly and that the industry is valued at about $2.7 billion annually

Kansa has a powerful and healing effect on the human body and mind. Ancient healers knew that there were subtle, unseen energies in the body. In Ayurveda, subtle energy points - known as marmas - were discovered on the chakra grid used in healing and spiritual practice. Thus, unseen networks of electro-magnetic energy are affected by kansa.
The Kirlian photographic process uses a technique to take photographs using high voltage to reveal the "aura" around the physical object.
Your aura is photographed using Kirlian Photography. Electrical currents on the skin are picked up at each specific acupuncture point.
