Treatment Treatment Information
Baby Massage Teaching massage techniques to mothers to use on their babies. Massage helps to reinforce the loving bond between parent and child.
Baby Yoga The Sanskrit word yoga is translated as 'union' between mind, body and spirit. In the West, the most widely taught form of yoga is Hatha Yoga with classes offering students exercises to stretch and flex the body, develop breath awareness, relaxation and sometimes meditation. Baby Yoga is specifically adapted for mothers to practice with their babies.
Bach Flower Remedies The remedies are used primarily for emotional and spiritual conditions, including but not limited to depression, anxiety, insomnia and stress.
Bates Method The Bates method for "better eyesight" is a controversial method which aims to undo what Bates claimed are "strained" vision habits. Bates described his approach to helping patients relax such strain (and thus, he claimed, improve their sight).
Behavior Therapy Behaviour Therapy is a form of psychotherapy which seeks to improve the way a person feels by changing what they do. It is commonly used to overcome phobias.
Bioelectrography The Kirlian technique is contact photography, in which the subject is in direct contact with a film placed upon a metal plate charged with high voltage, high frequency electricity.
From bio-electrograms it is possible to distinguish infections, inflammations, cancer, stress, depressive states, activities of different parts of the brain, even certain emotions.
Bio Testing / Bioassay Bioassays are typically conducted to measure the effects of a substance on a living organism. Bioassays may be qualitative or quantitative. Qualitative bioassays are used for assessing the physical effects of a substance that may not be quantified, such as abnormal development or deformity.
Biochemic Therapists Tissue salts are prescribed as tablets, made up with lactose powder in a manner similar to homeopathic products: The salt is ground with lactose powder in a ratio of 1:9, and this mixture is then ground with fresh lactose, again in a 1:9 ratio. This process is repeated six times, yielding a 1 000 000 to 1 dilution. Because of this dilution, tissue salts are generally prescribed at dosages that are too low to have any detectable effect on the levels of the minerals and electrolytes involved.
Biomagnetic Therapy Magnets placed on the body increase blood flow in a specific area, much as exercising does; indeed often giving a similar feeling of euphoria.
Biofeedback Biofeedback operates on the notion that we have the innate ability and potential to influence the automatic functions of our bodies through the exertion of will and mind. Biofeedback has recently been shown to give us what had previously seemed an impossible degree of control over a variety of physiologic events. Biofeedback can also be used to train persons to block the pain of colitis, neuritis, and other conditions. Many of these techniques have been scientifically proven. Using a special machine and sensors to record muscle contractions and skin temperature, you can learn to control normally involuntary processes such as heart rate and blood pressure that increase under stress. The machine "feeds back" the efforts and eventually you can recognize and control facets of the stress response by yourself.
Biorhythms Biorhythm charts illustrate the principle that we are influenced by physical, emotional, and intellectual cycles. Many people report that they can improve the quality of their lives by monitoring the highs and lows of these cycles and acting accordingly. For example, you might try to schedule important exams during your intellectual highs, avoid talking to your significant other during your emotional lows, or arranging the lineup of your baseball team around their physical highs.
Body Talk The BodyTalk SystemTM is a unique health care system that uses biofeedback to communicate with the body and discover its healing needs and priorities. Using no manipulation, diagnosis or remedies, the body is brought gently back into its natural individual balance.
Bowen Technique The Bowen Technique involves a gentle, rolling motion, with very light touches. The rolls are supposed to either tighten or loosen off muscles depending on the way the move is done.The practitioner will stimulate sets of points, often with two minute pauses, supposedly to allow the body to use the move and integrate it into the body's system. The Bowen Technique is not a form of massage, though it does claim to release areas of built-up stress in the muscles, and clients describe experiences of profound relaxation after a session, often falling asleep after the first few moves
Breath Therapy Breath Therapy is a personal development tool — a key ingredient in physical, emotional and mental health. Breath Therapy uses a variety of circular and conscious connected breathing techniques and process exercises to bring physical and emotional stress to the surface for release and integration. This clearing of blocked energy, negative beliefs and outworn habit patterns, unifies and integrates the body, mind, and spirit.
Buqi Healing “Buqi” is a unique energy healing system.  It is a part of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) in which the practitioner uses personally developed Taijiwuxigong forces in a combination of Eastern and Western medical theory for the treatment and healing of others.  a Buqi therapist utilizes specific techniques for expelling different causes of binqi, and may also suggest exercises, herbs, and possible changes in lifestyle habits
Buteyko The Buteyko method or Buteyko Breathing Technique is a holistic health philosophy, primarily for the treatment of asthma, that includes a set of breathing exercises. At the core of the Buteyko method is a series of breathing exercises that focus on nasal-breathing, breath-holding and relaxation. At present it is used to treat asthma, sleep apnea, snoring, anxiety attacks and panic attacks. These conditions are associated with disrupted or irregular breathing patterns and the Buteyko exercises aim to 'retrain' breathing to restore a natural pattern, akin to certain forms of Yoga.
