Why learn the basics of many forms of alternative medicine instead of focusing on one?
Each form of alternative medicine can help with any ailment, but often one is more useful than the other. Even better is to use a combination.
Depending on your situation, one might be more convenient to use. For example, herbal medicine may not be suitable when traveling.
Acupressure is like acupuncture but uses finger pressure as opposed to needles. It is over 5,000 years old and various forms of it are present all over Asia. In Japan, it is Shiatsu, Tui-na in China, Thai massage, Javanese healing massage, and so on. Each of these forms is unique in application but they all follow the same basic principles.
In Eastern culture illness and disease is a symptom of blocked energy. By applying pressure to specific points on the body you can release the flow of this stagnant energy.
Survival Fitness Plan Acupressure Training focuses on the “most useful” acupressure points. Use it for the prevention and treatment of illness.
Knowledge of acupressure points is also useful in self-defense.
Jin Shin Jyutsu (JSJ) is an ancient form of touch therapy used to unblock stagnant energy. Kind of like a gentler form of acupressure. In practice, it is putting your hands on certain spots of the body which helps to unblock stagnant energy.
The Survival Fitness Plan makes use of JSJ in the form of “quick fixes” which you can apply to yourself.
Jin Shin Jyutsu is also used in SFP as part of the daily health and fitness regime.
