If there was ever a time to enjoy the finer things in life, it is certainly most earned and deserved during your senior years. Treating yourself to a relaxing massage and beautiful aromatics are two wonderful pampering techniques to soothe the soul and any find bodily relief from the aches and pains that come with a life fully lived. What better compensation is there than enjoying the Human Touch massage chair while inhaling a wonderful aroma direct from nature? Being able to utilize this chair from the comfort of your home at any time of the day or night provides relaxation on demand. The added bonus of nature’s aroma can transport you emotionally to a vacation paradise, or trigger a memory of a great experience previously relished.

There are multiple benefits to inhaling pleasant scents – the least of which is that the simple act of deep breathing can reduce stress – a trickle-down ailment that accounts for an estimated 75 to 90 percent of doctor visits. Stress reduction is recommended in every physical or mental ailment ever diagnosed. If all doctors’ orders included massage and aromatherapy, we would all be on our way to better health; luckily no prescription is needed.

Many oils have been studied to reduce tension and promote relaxation, such as the citrus oils, lavender, geranium, neroli and ylang.  You can apply up to five drops of any single note or any combination of these natural essential oils to a candle diffuser, or simple apply a few drops to a tissue and breathe in while enjoying the hands-free action of the Human Touch massage chair as it gently rolls up and down the spine, massages your calves or jumps cat-like across your shoulders. I sometimes use different aromas with different settings. For instance, try rosemary or eucalyptus during the stimulating action that invigorates muscles, or customize lavender or orange for the slow relaxing movement that releases tension. Now that ought to keep you young and stress free!

Some thoughts on what really is holistic…

If we look at the number of people with obesity, diabetes, heart disease, cancer and so on, our country’s level of health is probably not as good as our military power or economy among the world’s developed countries, although our health is not actually terrible.

But to me, the big difference and uniqueness of holistic medicine is that it considers the human mind, emotion, love and compassion,  as much as the diseased body itself.  That is why the big hospitals and factory medical practices that see so many people daily find it hard to offer this kind approach to each one of their patients . Without individualized holistic medicine, the quality of their service may be poor.

My goal as a holistic medical practitioner is how to help people stay healthy inside and out, and if there is any disease, to cure it so it never comes back. We are not alone helping each other. The patient and physician are one team here, healing each other.

We have been seeing the word “holistic”  lately in every business, not only the medical field, but also in restaurants, food, shampoo, even clothes.  It seems that unless you call your product “holistic,” it is partial or incomplete.  The word is overused.

Holistic eyes see things as a whole or an organic system.  Everything affects everything, so there is nothing that exists by itself. In that sense, Traditional Eastern medicine has been holistic from its birth.  It sees the “human energy system” including the mind and body as interactive with that of the universe (tian in Chinese) or nature.

Why are some people, including many allopathic medical doctors, so passionate about holistic care? Because the separated and mechanical approach of modern Western medicine has shown the defects in treating many diseases and errors improving people’s health.

Holistic means that we really care about people’s health and their joy in life.  A holistic massage chair creates a positive effect on the whole body system, giving people the joy of using it and enhancing the joy of daily life!  The Human Touch 7450 Zero Gravity massage chair gives all this to people.  So holistic!
