EXOTERIC TRAINING [PREREQUISITE]

Massage is popularly understood as the manipulation of superficial layers of muscle and connective tissue to enhance the function and promote relaxation and well-being. The word comes from the French massage "friction of kneading", or from Arabic massa meaning "to touch, feel or handle" or from Latin massa meaning "mass, dough". In distinction the ancient Greek word for massage was anatripsis, and the Latin was frictio.

There are many forms of massage: Deep Tissue massage is designed to relieve severe tension in the muscle and the connective tissue; Esalen Massage was developed by Charlotte Selver and works with gentle rocking of the body; Anma is a traditional Japanese massage involving kneading and deep tissue work; Myofascial release refers to the manual massage technique for stretching the fascia and releasing bonds between fascia, integument, and muscles with the goal of eliminating pain; stone massage uses cold or water-heated stones to apply pressure and heat to the body; etc. Many types of practices are associated with massage and include bodywork, manual therapy, energy medicine, and breathwork.

The therapeutic use of massage and manipulation of the superficial tissues has been described to the extreme, even to the point of demonstrating and/or advocating various 'ethnic' massage styles - Swedish, Thai, Finnish, Japanese Shiatsu, Chinese Tui-Na, Balinese massage, Indian Ayurvedic, Hawaiian Lomilomi, Fijian Barefoot, Mayan abdominal massage, Filippino Hilot, etc. Suffice it to say, certain styles can be adopted and manual dexterity is certainly important. But we bring more import to this vital activity, so neglected in medicine.



EXOTERIC TRAINING PROVIDED

Neural Therapy is a novel system to treat medical problems of patients which are otherwise difficult or resistant to treatment. Neural therapy (in German: "Neuraltherapie") can be traced back to the German physicians Ferdinand and Walter Huneke , who at first called it "Heilanästhesie" (curative anaesthesia), then "Segmenttherapie" (segmental therapy) since it was found scars on the skin irritated the body's dermatomes and thus internal organs. Skin scars that have healed poorly are called "interference fields," and are now known to be great impediments to health and healing.

Provocatively the disturbance fields could be called "internal trigger points"! In the approach of neural therapy, the symptom-oriented way of thinking, complex interacting neurological factors, can be found by a special diagnostic process, including a specific palpation technique and a heightened skill of perceiving subtle soft tissue changes. Neural Therapy is based on the theory that trauma can produce long-standing disturbances in the electrochemical function of distal tissues. Among the types of tissues affected by trauma include scars with nerves or a cluster of nerves called ganglions, based on fibrinous deposits causing nerve entrapment. Nerve entanglement with scar tissue causes a electromechanical irritation which is relieved by:

1. repolarizing the nerve fiber with medicinal agents or electricity; and
2. dissolving (resolving) the fibrinous deposits, i.e. reduction of the scar tissue.

The key concept in Neural Therapy is that any scar, traumatized, infected or dysfunctional tissue called "Interference Zone" can create health problems elsewhere in the body. Originally discovered, if this zone is injected with a local anaesthetic a "Flash or Huneke Phaenomenon" occurs. Pain instantly vanishes, either local or remote. The author has performed this procedure thousands of times, but has found other methods just as effective but without the use of prescriptive drug injections.

Generally, response to treatment is individualistic but can be dramatic with sudden improvement of long lasting ailments, accompanied by autonomous healing reactions but also emotional release such as compulsory laughter or weeping. As a wholistic approach, Neural Therapists think that terms like "Psycho-somatic" or "functional" are misleading since successful treatment of an Interference zone usually improves the mental health as well, sometimes dramatically. The technique has also proven effective on animals.

There is a considerable healing potential for massage therapists with regards to health problems and trauma; the history taking focusing on any trauma, mental or physical; and special notice is taken on any scars or keloids on the skin. An electrotherapeutic treatment combined with essential oils, vitamins, and trace minerals can dramatically reduce ugly and nasty looking keloids.



ESOTERIC IMPLICATIONS IN THIS COURSE

Magnetic Healing

Magnetic healing involves the addition and manipulation of vital energy or prana on a person’s body through the use of the hands. The healer uses their etheric body as a channel for the soul to transmit vital pranic force into the etheric and physical body of the person being healed. There are many forms of magnetic healing, and the one presented in this course is a simple form anyone can do provided they have a good link to their soul, and the desire to heal.

It will be observed that all influences brought to bear in the science of magnetic healing is in the form of a suggestion, and is defined as such. All massage manipulations are actually tactile suggestions, and should be applied for the purpose of bringing into action the necessary vital forces in each and every organ of the body where an abnormal condition exists. Any inharmonious condition or inactivity of any organ creates a disturbance, and directly or indirectly influences the functions of some or all of the other organs in a greater or less degree.

Intention and good will is always the first thing that should be done in the direction of your patron or patient. You must first exert your will to intend before you will ever do anything therapeutic. If you intend to carry out your intention, you have got to do it, or the world will never know that you ever intended to do anything. If you intend to do something and then do it, all the world will know what your thoughts have been. Webster's dictionary states “Intention” is a design, purpose, the fixed direction of the mind to a particular object, or a determination to act in a particular manner. It is thus your intention to cure your patient, so will it be, based upon the strength of your intention. It is no different than prayer. You should also try to inspire your patient with their intention on his or her part to get well. You will soon observe a change in the condition of your patient having said the least words.

If you, the operator, discover inaction of any particular organ or organs, it will be only necessary to attract the forces required to bring this particular organ back into normal condition. It will soon be observed that all influences brought to bear in the science of magnetic healing is in the form of a suggestion. [The organ systems in need of action can be easily identified by for you and your patron by Therapeusis.]

Forever keep in mind, all manipulations by your hands, feet and words are forms of suggestion. Spoken words are verbal suggestions. A thought of health for your patient, formulated in the mind and directed to the patient’s mind is a mental suggestion, or a transference of thought form to your patient. This course will help you in cultivating and developing the capacity to hold at will, for long or short periods of mental abstraction, to accumulate thought force, you are ever building and increasing in power and volume the unseen vital forces, which is being sent out from your mind and directed to your patient’s or any other person’s mind far or near, and thereby effect results favorable to the concentrated intention directed. This same power can be directed to one’s self with the same force and effect corresponding with your intention, to heal yourself or invoke action.

The practitioner or healer who places his hands on his patient, and who gives healing suggestion, uses a physical stimulus in the very act of touching his patient. His very presence before the patient is a stimulus to make the suggestion take effect. If there is something else directly associated in the mind of the patient with which healing is used, such as a remedy or medicine, the effect is far greater.

There is one great and most important point that should always be borne in mind by the student as this course will teach, that of fixing suggestion firmly upon the subjective mind of his patient, to make it one grand and lasting impression, invokes healing. The will then takes it up and forces the body into that particular expression. It matters little what may be the conditions to overcome in the body. Emotions must be subdued in order that these expressed mental impressions are demonstrated in accordance with the will so directed.

There are so many different kinds of suggestions that it would be a hard matter to enumerate all of them, whether by prayer, affirmation, or other exercise. Everything that we feel, see, hear, taste or smell is suggesting to us - even thoughts of others are offering suggestions. If we are passive to them, we get infected; if we are positive, we do not, or there are stronger suggestions already in the mind which oppose their admittance. We find it possible to discipline ourselves, for example to awake at any hour suggested, to have our bowels regulated, our digestion smooth, our voice with grace and vigor, etc. The force that arouses you at night is the same that does so in the day time. The construction of the mind seems to be able to meet all requirements; consequently its power is virtually unlimited.

Suggestion creates diseases and suggestion cures them. This is another evidence that diseases originate in the mind, as discussed in this Course. It is also another proof that the mind (brain) controls the body. There are thousands of invalids today who contracted their ailments by at first supposing that they had or thought they had a certain disease, as suggested by a 'doctor', and resorting to some drug recommended as a cure for such ills. As a result of the continuous dwelling upon that suggetion, finally forced that into expression in their own bodies. Positive suggestions from you, the healer, are able to the effect that they have the power within them to overcome their trouble, and if they assumed it to be true, and tried it, the result would be a complete restoration to health.

Also be aware, there are many people who are invalids, who would not be anything else for the world. They seem to be perfectly contented, and to suggest a remedy for their restoration to health would be regarded as an infringement upon their rights. They look as happy and contented as one could wish, and to be wheeled around in an invalid’s chair which seems to be their special delight. We cannot cure everyone by this method. It is not our province to treat this class of patients, but on the contrary, we wish to try to help those who are willing to help themselves. The object in calling the attention of the reader to the above class of patients, is to discover, if possible, if the patient really wants to get well, thus saving a great deal of hard work and doing little good.

There is a broad field for labor in the profession of Magnetic Healing among those who need and really want your help. And a busy life can be devoted to this great and noble cause. If this is your calling, we invite you to take this course.
