Tonification. The Critical Mass
What is Tonification?
Tone is a word associated with fitness, lifestyle, beauty, spa, nutrition and wellness. It is a priority standard in health, physical appearance, skin testing and product support. It is related to our daily choices in style, in diet, in appearance and even in our likes of others. Tone epitomizes health, wealth and wellness in those that have some.
This is simple for those blessed with natural collagen and elastin in abundant supply. There is no bounce in the skin. The mass remains lean at work, during dressing, during workout and during massage. Muscle fibres are dense and the body has good shape. A glimpse at someone may even indicate measurement of likely professionalism and social success as tone is the look the world has chosen at work.
Tonification is a word mostly associated with Chinese medicine, acupuncture, shiatsu, tuina, reflexology and essential energetics.
However it is not exclusively Chinese. Sports nutrition tones. Fruit waters tone. Lemons, apple cider vinegar, aloe vera and many ayurvedic herbs, dispel fluids and provide tone. Tonification works best where the environment and lifestyle support is harmonious.
Tonification may be seen as a strategy for those losing tone, or for those who have lost it. The body has an immense inbuilt system of recovery which can be used by practitioners. There is methodology to this. There is assessment to which aspect of lifestyle, emotion, genetics or past medical history has caused trouble. Cases requiring tonification may not be sick. But the practitioner will arrive at the root cause, the root organ in trouble and the likely patterned behavioural response of the patient.
This is worth the watch. Humans can avoid unhappiness, lack of confidence, lack of motivation, and fear of social failure for a wasting physique in a world where bodies are gaining greater beauty and power by taking support. The system of TCM (acupuncture energetics), promises longevity and good health to those under its care. It is tragic to see lifestyle being the cause of physical deterioration and divorce, flaccidity being the cause of a weak career growth, and nobody teaches abandoned people how to remain motivated.
Tonification is a system of point selection, involving re-education of the body’s natural energetics that can be used for enhanced therapy, through finger pressure, needling, moxa, laser or electro stimulation.
The technique used in terms of pressure, circular applied stimulus, timing or force may be managed precisely for any therapeutic response.
A fast stimulus on a trigger acupressure point may activate the energetics. A reduced stimulus may lower the energetics. A good balanced stimulus will tonify the energetics. There are variations to the rule based on the clinical situation. High level of pain may require less pressure on target points and sedation effects.
Tonification is given only to boost immunity and general health. A needle inserted into spleen 6 point, which rests on the confluence of three meridians, is good to support the pelvic region, lower body pain, and flaccidity in the abdomen due to an unhealthy uterus. The same needle, if manually stimulated will tonify the point further and improve results. If Ren 6 is added to the Spleen 6 point, the energetics is balanced through localized and distant triggers. The abdomen, uterus and energetics of the entire body improves from this minor therapy protocol. The Hara can be tonified through regular massage. This alters the shape and appearance of the abdomen at very deep levels of energetics that re-educates the performance of all essential organ channels.
Where low level laser is preferred to needles, tonification is managed from dosimetry. A high laser dose sedates. A short laser dose stimulates. Tonification is possible from an ideal balance of dose.
Incase pain or oedema are noticed, these are treated first, and then the points are tonified. Low level laser may also be used generally to improve tissue condition, lymphatics, tone and restore DNA damage at the level of genetics through a continuous dose. DNA damage is the prime irreversible cause of cancer and cell death. Therefore these therapies are very promising for everybody.
Although miracles are common in the response, it is not the aim of this article to promise some. Herbal support, good diet and balanced exercise is needed for best results. Lifestyle aids and common lifestyle communities support inspiration.
