    Posted on by admin | Leave a comment

    Lypossage

    Lypossage is a specialized body work technique that is provided by advanced trained licensed and certified health care practitioners such as nurses, massage therapists, estheticians, and acupuncturists.

    Lypossage is a non-surgical, non-invasive, anti-aging, detoxifying bodywork modality that promotes the reduction of adipose tissue (fat cells) and cellulite tissue through lymphatic drainage and kneading of the adipose tissue in the areas of concern. The bodywork techniques are used along with a specially formulated homeopathic spray or ointment that promotes fat metabolism and assists with weight reduction thereby resulting in a smoother appearance of the skin. The therapy shows significant and measurable results.

    Five inches can be lost within in just six weeks. The treatment can also break up adhesions in the skin and adipose tissue layers, improve sinus conditions, reduce thigh pain, reduce fibrocystic breasts, and much more.

    For a therapist just call the Institute.

  • Orthopedic Massage

    Posted on by admin | Leave a comment
    Orthopedic Massage (OM) is best described as a massage technique that supports normalized muscle function of soft tissue by reducing muscle hypertonicity (tightness), and strengthening of inhibited (weak) muscles.  Lauren Berry, RPT, influenced OM as reflected in his treatment of chronic and acute injuries.  Examples of the types of injuries he treated through OM were muscle strains, sprains and
    twisted joints. As a mechanical engineer and a physical therapist, Berry theorized that all soft tissues in the body have a specific position relative to the neighboring
    soft tissue and its associated joint, and that massage must be applied in a specific manner to correct its positional function.

    The standard protocol used in OM is comprised of four components. This standard protocol incorporates the following tools that are used in OM which further
    evaluates the condition of the client.

     

    1) Orthopedic Assessment

    2) Matching the physiology of the injury with the physiological effects of treatment

    3) Treatment Adaptability

    4) Appropriate use of the protocol

     

    When these steps are taken this creates an adequate and workable treatment plan.  Postural analysis along with functional assessment are also excellent ways to gather data, as it relates to the client’s health and OM.
    Treatments can be administered through several modalities such as Muscle Energy Techniques (MET), Deep Tissue Therapy, Sports Massage, Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF) stretching, Active Isolated Stretching (AIS), and more.
    Other treatments that may help in the healing process are Acupuncture, Acupressure, Reiki, Chakra Balancing, and Holistic Examinations.
    OM can also be administered as a support to Physical Therapy treatments, postoperative care, and general overall management of the body.
    These services can be found at the Washington Institute of Natural Medicine. Feel free to visit the Institute’s web site at www.NaturalHealthDC.com or www.Massage-DC.com for further information.
    If you would like to determine if OM is for you please contact me or Dr. Victoria Goldsten, HD at the Washington Institute at 202-237-7681.

  • Acupuncture with Massage-DC

    Acupuncture in Washington, D.C.
    Dr. Victoria Goldsten, HD
    Natural Health Care Nurse
    Integrative Homeopathic Doctor
    Acupuncture Apprentice

    I am Dr. Victoria Goldsten, a natural health care nurse, integrative homeopath, acupressure practitioner, and an acupuncture apprentice. I first became introduced to acupuncture in 1996 when I studied introduction to acupuncture at the FAES Graduate School at the National Institute of Health’s hospital.  It was
    fascinating to see how acupuncture points on the Chinese meridian systems
    treated numerous health complaints.  Along with acupuncture training I also studied acupressure at the Shiatsu and Healing Center.  These two programs gave me my start in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).

    After all of my years in nursing I now could see the connection with disease and imbalances; the imbalances that lead to disease as referenced in TCM.  How
    fascinating it was.  Now in all of my consultations with clients I use the TCM observations.  Upon completion of my consultation and assessment,
    imbalances frequently would become revealed in the liver, kidneys, or spleen
    meridians.  Upon this being evident, I would recommend natural homeopathics or herbs to treat the imbalances. In addition I have recommended acupuncture for these imbalances.

    Along with treating imbalances acupuncture is very successful in treating numerous pain conditions. In these circumstances I work in conjunction with Dr. BK. Mdahar, a long time licensed acupuncturist at the Washington Institute of Natural Medicine.  Dr. Mudahar has a soothing, nurturing bedside manner and has helped hundreds of clients over the years with neck pain, back pain, sinus pressure, female disorders, and much more.  Dr. Mudahar is a graduate of the Maryland Institute of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Upon her completion of her studies in acupuncture she became a respected teacher of the Maryland Institute and a practitioner at the Washington
    Institute.

    Dr. Mudahar recently began an apprenticeship program in acupuncture at the Washington Institute were she has six acupuncture apprentices under her tutelage. The Institute offers acupuncture privately with Dr. Mudahar and at a reduced rate with her aspiring acupuncturists.  When a client requests the reduced rate acupuncture Dr. Mudahar reviews the case with the interns and teaches them point identification and the meridian theories behind the treatment plan.

    If you are interested in acupuncture for your health complaints please feel free to contact the Washington Institute of Natural Medicine and we will be glad to speak to you.  I am available for a phone consultation to review your personal situation and to help you determine the best path for you in the selection of alternative medicine therapies.

  • Back Pain Treatments – Naturally!

    Posted on by admin | Leave a comment

    Natural Treatment for Back Pain
    Dr. Victoria Goldsten, HD
    Natural Health Care Nurse, Licensed Massage Therapist
    Integrative Homeopathic Doctor
    Certified Neural Therapy Practitioner

    Since 1973 I have cared for patients with back pain.  First, those in the hospital
    setting after surgical procedures and now, in an alternative medicine facility.  I have gone from giving Demerol injections to now providing massage, acupressure, homeopathy, and neural therapy.  Although Demerol helped with the pain it was
    a temporary treatment as are many other drugs.

    Over the last fifteen years I have seen massage eliminate pain and promote improved mobility. It increases circulation and helps the moisture return into the tissue sites — as a result symptoms improve.  In addition, I have worked with an orthopedic massage therapist that improves joint function and increases range of motion with his treatments.

    When a client presents with difficult pain complaints I recommend the addition of acupuncture to the massage therapy sessions.  Acupuncture also increases
    circulation and causes a rise in endorphins resulting in pain relief.

    I feel natural practitioners need an arsenal of methods to help control pain and to assist in the healing of the client.  One powerful method is dry needle neural
    therapy.  This technique is provided by those medical practitioners permitted to use hypodermic needles such as phlebotomists, nurses, and medical doctors. One neural therapy method inserts the needle via an empty syringe, through the skin at approximately 30 to 90 degrees, and then removes the syringe.  The needle is left in place for at least 20 minutes to reach therapeutic value. The locations are selected based on peripheral nerve sites related to the pain.

    Some clients have reported an elimination of pain just after one session.  Repeat sessions may be needed based on the clients personal history.  Based upon neural therapy data, the millivolts produced by the nerve are reduced thereby decreasing the pain.

    Neural therapy practitioners may practice the method in different ways.  Other methods introduce the needles quickly and repetitively throughout the treatment session and some may inject Novocain. Usually those using Novocain are medical doctors but nurses can provide the treatment with Novocain injections after receiving a doctor’s prescription.

    The Washington Institute practitioners offer the dry needle technique with the 20 minute needle placement. Institute clients have reported that the dry needle neural therapy to be even more powerful than acupuncture.

    In addition to massage, acupuncture, and neural therapy clients may also find positive response to acupressure and homeopathic remedies.

    Prior to treatment it is important to have a diagnosis from a medical doctor to insure that there is nothing seriously affecting the client that may need conventional medical attention.

    The Washington Institute of Natural Medicine has a variety of natural therapies that augment conventional care.  Please feel free to contact the Institute for further question or details.
