Remote and In-Person Sessions with Dr. George
Whether we meet in person or over our state-of-the-art video conferencing network, you get the same in-depth transformative experience with me. I have been a student & practitioner of healing arts & medicines for two decades, & a professional educator for three decades. My patient-students live all over the world.
Counseling, bodywork (many styles), diet, & herbal therapies are my medical specialties. In some states, I am a licensed acupuncturist as well. I also specialize in the endocannabinoid system from a classical/eastern medical perspective. I treat individuals of all ages and backgrounds.
Classical Chinese Medicine
Classical Chinese Medicine (CCM) is a WHOLE medicine system with roots reaching back thousands of years. It includes (but is not limited to): Acupuncture (in states where I maintain a license), Acupressure, other bodywork modalities, QiGong/TaiJi, Facial rejuvenation, Psychology (mind-body-spirit medicine), Herbs, Nutrition, and even TCM, which is the most recent and popular form of Chinese Medicine.
Asian medicine systems have been used for several thousands of years to maintain and promote health. These systems encompass herbal remedies, acupuncture, massage (such as nuad-boran, shiatsu, sotai, & tui na), movement practices (such as yoga, qigong, & taiji), meditation practices, and dietary suggestions. When used in combination, with guidance and support from a physician-teacher, imbalances are corrected and health is attained and maintained.
What is ‘Qi’ & how does it flow?
A core principle of Asian medicines is that vital forces such as Qi (pronounced “chee”) flow throughout the body. When balanced and moving optimally they protect us from illness, pain, and disease. These forces circulate through pathways that are connected to all of the organs, glands, and structures in our bodies. Like rivers transporting life-giving water to nourish land, flora, & fauna, Qi nourishes every cell, organ, & tissue in our body.
What affects these vital forces?
Many things! Physical and emotional trauma, stress, lack of exercise, overexertion, seasonal changes, diet, accidents, or excessive activity affect the quality, quantity, and balance of our vital forces. We can even inherit imbalances from our ancestors. Ideally, our body naturally corrects these imbalances. However, sometimes it does not and this is when dis-ease can set in. We will use a combination of practices to support flow and restore balance.
Why Asian instead of Western medicine?
Even Western medical doctors are beginning to see that pharmaceuticals and surgeries are not always the best way to treat imbalance and disease on our bodies. Ideally, these options are best to avoid if we can right? Well, these natural medical practices have been working for millions of people for thousands of years, and if we can stop or avoid drugs and surgeries and improve our health, why not?
For those interested in learning more about CCM here is a brief article from one of my teachers who is preeminent in the field. https://classicalchinesemedicine.org/a/ccm/
Classical Yoga Practices
|I will lead you through a series of yoga postures while palming and thumbing along the body’s energy lines and pressure points.|
|You will receive a comprehensive full-body treatment that relieves muscular tension, improves circulation, boosts the immune system, and balances the body energetically.|
|Sessions are followed with recommendations on diet, exercises, yoga postures, and meditation to practice before our next session. Ideally, a progressive treatment plan is set up where we build on each session and develop the relationship between practitioner and client.|
These in-person sessions are traditionally 1.5-3 hours. I also offer partner and group workshops where you can learn to work on one another.
Cranio-Sacral Osteopathy, Reiki, and other Modalities
I use Cranio-Sacral Osteopathy and Reiki in both remote and in-person sessions. Here is a piece I wrote on Reiki: http://thelotusway.org/web/Reiki.htm Here is an interesting 30-minute interview I did with my Guru regarding ‘Alternative Therapies, Health, and Spirituality’. It includes discussions about many modalities and some history behind the evolutions of various medical modalities, including cranio-sacral osteopathy, Classical Chinese Medicine, Yoga/Shaktipat, Homeopathy, and even modern bio-medicine. The last few minutes are key for us all to hear and remember! http://swamichetanananda.org/august-2015-alternative-therapies-and-health-care/
