A-Z of Alternative Health

Posted by Kero at Thursday, November 01, 2007
Good evening visitors. I had a long day and my back ache feels horrible. My baby is really getting heavier everyday and i feel sleepy most of the time hihi. But i still try to walk around even though my feet complains. I'm glad that the temperature now has significantly dropped so a long walk is really favorable these days.

Anyway before i retire for the night, i would like to continue my clippings on alternative health. I am listing here another three and you can visit their website when you surf the net over the weekend.

O is for Osteopathy
One of the most universally accepted complementary therapies, osteopathy is mainly used to treat lower back pain, using massage, spine cracking and manipulation to realign the vertebrae, thus improving the blood supply. Some osteopaths also use it to treat other disorders, such as headaches and digestive problems. Find out more:

P is for Pilates
Named after its founder, Joseph Pilates, this approach to exercise is said to develop body awareness, improving the posture and increasing flexibility. Pilates is popular with athletes and dancers, but is recommended as a safe and effective form of exercise for everyone, particularly pregnant women and the elderly. It involves repeating sets of exercises very precisely in order to build strength. Find out more:

Q is for Qigong
Pronounced chee kung, qigong literally means energy (qi) and exercise (gong) and involves combination of gentle stretches, combined with controlled breathing. The idea is that it develops good abdominal bretahing and wards off respiratory problems. The various strands of qigong all stem from a 3,000-year-old practice devised by Taoist monks.
