Musings on Biomimicry and Our Future...

We see it all around us. We see it within the atomic structure and the design of our solar system – the designs appearing similar – planets cycling around the sun; electrons, neutrons and protons cycling around a nucleus. We see it in our history books. We see it in our microscopes. Some say we see it when we pass from this living plane – they say the next is similar to this one. Bio mimicry . . .(read on here.)

Body therapy, or massage, is a practice of healthcare that has been around for centuries. Ancient texts document, “Anointing,” which was the application of oils to the body. Hippocrates, the “Father of Medicine,” established some original holistic methods of healthcare that included exercise, massage, fresh air, rest, diet, and cleanliness. In modern times, we are seeing the emergence of a new understanding of massage therapy, and that massage is something not just for the elite, but for everyone.  Read more here.

Empower your Health With Knowledge of Self

energy being chakrasThe day that humans began to name and study their bodies is the day that humans evolved in healing.

We all have a healer within ourselves.  Hippocrates acknowledged this, and modern science has confirmed it as well.  We regenerate.  Some of us more so than others, but all of us have the inherant ability to heal and be healed.  What moves us further along the evolutionary path is the insertion of our consciousness into the body.  When we focus our minds upon a body part and communicate with our bodies by asking it to heal, or thanking it for healing, we accelerate the healing process.  All of this can be facilitated by increasing our knowledge of our bodies, of our health, of our health care, and what is actually good for us.
