Sleep Disorders in People Who Have Chronic Kidney Disease

Sleep is essential to maintain health, the ancient Chinese believe. An old Chinese quote says that “replenishing health with medicine is not as good as replenishing health with diet, but that replenishing health with sleep is the best treatment of all.

This amazing therapy consists of treating specific acupuncture points using bio magnet therapy.

Shen can be translated as "Spirit" or "Mind", and implies our consciousness, mental functions, mental health, vitality, and our "presence".

Shen lives in the Heart, where it retires to sleep during the night. If the Shen is disturbed, there may be insomnia. Shen is specifically said to live in the Blood Vessels (part of the system of the Heart) and to be nourished by the Blood. In TCM pathology, therefore, deficient Blood may fail to nourish the Shen. Alternatively, Heat (of various Organs) may disturb the Shen.

In this treatment, a lot of attention is paid to sleep issues and differentiates between trouble falling sleep, difficulty staying asleep (“light sleep”), and having dream-disturbed sleep, as each is related to an imbalance in a different organ system. When a Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioner is gathering information to put together a treatment plan, the pattern of the sleep disturbance will be taken into consideration.

Asian Bodywork Therapy / ABT
Shiatsu / Tuina / Acupressure

Bodywork is gentle and suitable therapy for all ages, from babies to body builders.
A form of natural healing, it balances the body's energy and stimulates and enhances the body's own healing abilities. Traditional Chinese medicine is 5000 year old healing wisdom; our present day knowledge of anatomy, physiology, and pathology has its foundations here.

ABT is a non-invasive therapy that helps contribute to overall well-being.

ABT is a great way to help to slow down when you have pushed yourself too much from everyday life.

ABT can be used for a wide variety of internal musculoskeletal and emotional conditions, it is thought to reduce muscle stiffness, stimulate the skin, aid in digestion and influence the nervous system. ABT is effective sports therapy, sports injuries are treated using gentle stretches and pressure points.

ABT has shown to be effective for the pain and discomfort for many chronic conditions:

• Treats Sports Injuries
• Improves Circulation

• Reduces Stress and Tension as well as Anxiety and Depression
• Fatigue
• Insomnia
• Fibromyalgia
• Aids in Treatment of Musculoskeletal Issues
• Aids in Treatment of Digestive Disorders
• Treats PMS, Morning Sickness, and Menstrual Issues

The effect may be stimulating and invigorating or sedative and calming; depending on the goals of the session.
In the U.S. ABT is considered a subset of massage therapy or acupuncture, but is in fact similar to both.

Stagnant energy can be considered a roadblock to wellness as it is the very definition of why we feel pain.

An ABT treatment helps to bring balance back to our immune system.

Touch is a powerful tool for helping stressful situations have less hold on our lives, Shi-Atsu translates to the words finger-pressure.

Our worries and concerns do affect us, we all know that.
I am often asked by people why do I have all these KNOTS, in my body, the answer is because blood flow follows the energetic flow, these knots are real and are caused from discomfort on the physical, emotional or mental level.

When a person worries, this energy flows in many directions, and as such, will create circles and knots which eventually will prevent blood from flowing smoothly, especially in the spleen, stomach, and chest.

This knotting of energy will be abdominal distention, gastric discomfort, shoulder tension, breathlessness, or chest discomfort. But if worrying becomes a person's normal thought process, then chronic abdominal diseases will result.

ABT for Pediatrics

Kim Purdy has been treating children for more than 30 years and there is nothing more beneficial than a professional therapist treating a child through a healing ABT session. Unlike Swedish massage, ABT is a specific and individualized treating the person as a whole mind, body, and spirit.

Ongoing classes for parents and loves ones to teach how to use the gentle hands on treatment (Tsubos) pressure points this serves the child in so many ways especially balancing and strengthening the immune system and vitality.

Testimonials

I recently went to Bodyworks for the first time for an ABT treatment from Kim. Setting up my appointment with Kim was done easily via email. The location was comfortable and Kim was very polite and professional. The treatment was enjoyable and my muscles felt great after. The price for an hour treatment was also very reasonable. I will definitely be back for another treatment in the near future.

I am often asked by people why do I have all these KNOTS, in my body, to which I respond, that 
because blood flow follows the energetic flow, these knots are real and are caused from discomfort on the physical, emotional or mental level.

When a person worries, this energy flows in many directions, and as such, will create circles and knots which eventually will prevent Qi from flowing smoothly, especially in the spleen, stomach, and chest.
This knotting of energy will be abdominal distention, gastric discomfort, shoulder tension, breathlessness, or chest discomfort. But if worrying becomes a person's normal thought process, then chronic abdominal diseases will result.

No matter how much we try to turn off our mind, it is possible, sometimes going out for a brisk walk or another action does not give us the full relief we require to get the

JOB of letting go of stress, but it is certain that not only does the mind relax during and after an ABT treatment, it also strongly affects our ability to allow our spiritual path to be more receptive.
For instance, a writer that feels blocked can now know the best direction to move for the creative ‘juices’ to flow.

An ABT treatment is a great way to help to slow down when you have pushed yourself too much from work or everyday life.
