Deep Tissue Therapy & Reiki Grand Rapids

Rheumatology ‘broken’: Internal U-M Health-West email on program closure |

Manual therapy uses no oil, a heat lamp, and goes deep next to the joint to release the actual problem.

This is happening in my local area and maybe in yours. But holistic medicine, in my office, has fairly easy answers here that work.

Rheumatology is a subspecialty in internal medicine and pediatrics that deals with the joints, soft tissues, autoimmune diseases, and heritable connective tissue disorders. A rheumatologist specializes in the diagnosis, treatment, and therapy of the rheumatic diseases.

Well, this is what Naprapaths, such as myself have cured for 23 years! The existence of the”rheum” goes back to old osteopathic myth about why the body has so much pain. They blame a mythical nodule called a “rheum” and cold doesn’t help heal it. Actually cold can help calm hot inflammation but doesn’t cure it and there is no such thing as “a rheum”. There is such a thing as a muscle adhesion though that heat initially helps release and then some cold can calm the pain.

In addition, our bodies are epigenetically responsive, not genetically based on birth DNA. It’s true that you may have picked up the behaviors and vibes but your DNA is controlled by your own RNA and that is controlled by you and your choices. There is no such thing as genetic determinism any longer. Take a look at this article.

Genetics Is Giving Way to a New Science of Life

The origin of rheumatology can be traced to ancient times. Diseases such as gout and osteoarthritis were prevalent in ancient people. Many ancient skeletons show signs of gout and osteoarthritis. The ancient book on Indian Medicine, Charaka Samhita, gives a vivid description of many variants of arthritis. But it wasn’t until the late 16th century that Guillaume de Baillou, the father of rheumatology, first used the term “rheumatism” to refer to joint ailments.

Ok, we’re not in ancient times anymore with our understanding of BONES and JOINTS so our medicine for such needs to come into at least the 20th century! We know…that blood circulation in THE MUSCLE and the rest of the soft tissue, tendon, ligament, and nerve CONTROLS the condition of the bone. Controls it! The bones are subservient to your 850 muscles full of blood and your doctor will tell you that to keep your muscles strong you must do some muscle weight bearing and remain active. That means creating blood circulation, sometimes slowly. This is a no-brainer. Your blood and muscles are your QI, your human power, your life force, and keep you alive. You must take care of them in the deep tissue, four layers down.

The remedy is for an experienced professional to use their hands to release rock-like soft tissue adhesions at the joint attachment, not the belly. This isn’t massage, it’s medical…manual… therapy, and we are trained to go deep with causing a bad hurt, like Rolfers. We cause a good hurt that you breathe out. Any good Naprapath teaches their patient to use their breath to release resistance.

Your muscles become hard as a rock of varying sizes when your mental/emotional stress cycle is unrelenting. I’ve been releasing it for 23 years with huge success with manual therapy and Reiki. But health insurance won’t cover it because it works and is holistic. People pay cash and I make sure it’s affordable and offer a discount plan. Most patients have their condition cured within 5-10 treatments so it is much cheaper than paying for health insurance and for practitioners that never cure anything so they keep getting money from you. I always have a crop of new patients that need me. I don’t need to scam old patients because I don’t know what I’m doing. You are usually out the door when we’re done. If I see a problem right away that I can’t tackle I will refer you out. Your body is fixable but you do have to do some self-care at home. It is most definitely worth it.
