Organ failure leading to death can be attributed to sleep deprivation. If you can't sleep, your body can't heal. Sleep has a powerful impact on your emotional well-being. Important hormones and enzymes are produced during sleep, including Human Growth Hormone, that rejuvenates organ systems. This occurs during REM sleep, the dreams stage. We need a regular schedule, 7-8 hours, and short dreams.
We are now on the 2nd of the Seven Great Healers, which is water. Since our body is made of mostly water, it is only natural that we should provide it with the very best choice of water. If you have shopped any stores recently in the water aisle, there are many choices. Are there really that many different kinds of water? Is there any difference in those and tap water. MuQi gives his suggestions for the best drinking water below.
This month we are looking at Supplements and Tinctures. When you make an appointment at The Balance Point, MuQi may suggest different supplements and tinctures, if he feels that they will benefit the client for more efficient healing. Supplements, we are all pretty familiar with and the following information describes some common supplements.

MuQi uses a system called Touch for Health.
Touch for Health is a system of balancing posture, attitude and life energy to relieve stress, aches and pains, feel and function better, be more effective, clarify and achieve your goals and enjoy your life!
Touch for Health was created by John F. Thie, DC (1933-2005). The first Manual was published in 1973 and launched a worldwide movement in a holistic approach to health which teaches the restoring of our natural energies. It is a practical guide to natural health using acupressure, touch and massage to improve postural balance and reduce physical and mental pain and tension.-quote from Touch for Health

Benefits of Muscle Balancing
Using the Muscle Balancing technique works hand in hand with the other services used during an appointment at The Balance Point with MuQi. Muscle Balancing improves your health in the areas of stress, pain and function, as stated above in the Touch for Health quote. Muscle Balancing along with acupuncture and massage compliment each other to provide an optimal experience and accelerated healing.
Massage is a wonderful way to ease the pain of sore muscles. Muscles that are tight and overworked can benefit from massage to release the tension and stress in your hectic life. Our in-house licensed massage therapist (LMT), MuQi can help ease this muscle tension and accelerate the healing process offered through therapeutic massage.
