Learn About Alternative Healing Dictionary
Sometimes when reading about healing and other esoteric arts I come across words that I would like to know what they stand for. I have now tried to compile a dictionary/glossary that includes different forms of healing, esoteric words, religions and information about the organs in the human body. This is by no means a complete alternative healing dictionary and some of you might even have an objection to my interpretation of certain words. Feel free to let me know your views and also if you would like to add a new word.
Acupressure: A treatment that involves the surface stimulation of acupoints digitally, manually, or with tools held in the hand.
Adrenal glands: Each kidney has an adrenal gland located above it. The adrenal is divided into an inner medulla and an outer cortex . The medulla synthesizes amine hormones. The cortex secrets steroid hormones. Stimulation of the cortex by the nervous system causes the “fight or flight” response.
