2020 Sound Bath Events from Six Senses Healing

Feel stressed, anxious or even depressed? Having trouble sleeping? Can’t relax or stay calm?

Try Sound Baths!!! Some people unwind with a long bubble bath or a glass of wine. Others prefer a sound bath session. A sound bath experience is a great alternative way for anyone who has not yet learned how to meditate on their own. Music has been used for its therapeutic effects for thousands of years.

The sound frequency and the vibrations stimulate the brain and the Vagus nerve system so when your body and mind are relaxed, the brain will release happy chemicals (Dopamine, Serotonin, Oxytocin, and Endorphins), and higher Vagal tone makes your body better at regulating blood glucose levels, reducing the likelihood of diabetes and cardiovascular disease.  The immune system is at its best when we are relaxed.

In 2020, We are going to have not only the Sound Bath but also incorporate with different Monthly Theme-Focused Guided Meditation, and aromatherapy. So please mark your calendar and join us for a happier and healthier 2020!!!

10 Holistic Approaches to Parkinson’s Disease

For people with Parkinson’s disease, treatment typically involves the use of medications that help minimize movement problems and control symptoms. A disorder of the central nervous system, Parkinson’s disease also can be better managed with the help of certain lifestyle changes. Since many medications used in the treatment of Parkinson’s disease can cause severe side effects, patients often seek alternative treatment options.

The use of alternative medicine in the treatment of Parkinson’s disease has yet to be extensively researched. However, a small number of studies suggest that the following natural approaches may be of some benefit to Parkinson’s patients.

1. Watch and Read

  • Watch a documentary called “HEAL”.

It’s on Netflix if you or your friends have Netflix. Or you can rent or buy via an online platform such as iTune, Amazon, etc.

2. Eat healthy food.

Raw fruits and vegetables, High fiber foods, Healthy fats, Cold-pressed oils, Omega-3 foods, Green tea, lots of water, Protein at dinner only.

AVOID too much protein, processed foods, artificial sweeteners & added sugar, alcohol, any potential food allergens (gluten, dairy, shellfish, peanuts.)

3. Add supplements.

Coenzyme Q10, Vitamin C, D, E, Omega-3 fish oil, Green vegetable powder supplement that includes Spirulina, chlorella or wheatgrass.

4. Choose the right exercises.

Staying active can help you sleep, strengthen your muscles and joints, reduce stress and depression, and improve posture, balance, and gait. The types of exercise you choose will depend, to some degree, on the severity of your Parkinson’s disease and your overall health.

According to the Parkinson’s Disease Clinic and Research Center at the University of California, the exercises should be varied and incorporate changing directions through unplanned movement, cardiovascular exercise, balance, strength training and rhythmical exercises.

Walking, Dancing, Tai Chi, Qigong, Yoga, Meditation, Swimming, Water Aerobics,

5. Acupuncture.

According to the Neurodegenerative Disease Research Group at King’s College in London, recent research has shown acupuncture can relieve Parkinson’s symptoms by generating a neural response in areas of the brain that are particularly affected by inflammation, such as the putamen and the thalamus.

Acupuncture has been used for centuries to help reduce pain, anxiety, insomnia, and stiffness. Now it’s suggested that it can even help slow cell death and attenuate oxidative stress that causes damage to dopaminergic neurons in the substantia nigra.

6. Hypnotherapy and Sound Therapy.

Hypnotherapy is like a guided meditation with an intention that works on your subconscious by telling your subconscious what we want the body to do (relax your body and mind, sleep better, improve the symptoms, etc.)

Sound Therapy uses the water in your body vibrated with the Singing Bowls that is placed on your body plus the sound you hear, together they can work wonders to unblock the tension you have in your organs or cells, brain stimulation can dramatically improve the symptoms, and the transmission of dopamine and serotonin. Sound Therapy helps with motivation, coordination, energy, vocal tone and modulation, mood and positivity.

7. MRI-Focused Ultrasound  Undergoing Phase 3 Clinical Trial for Parkinson’s Treatment

With the new technology, clinicians direct ultrasound waves to a brain structure called the globus pallidus, which helps regulate voluntary movement, to destroy damaged tissue, decreasing the uncontrolled movements that characterize Parkinson’s disease.

Doctors use magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to create a temperature map of the brain, giving them a real-time picture of the region they want to hit with the sound waves. They then raise the energy, directly targeting that area of the brain to destroy the tissue.

8.  Aromatherapy

Essential oils are believed to have beneficial effects on the mind, body, and spirit. Many essential oils are used to treat specific ailments or complaints. Like herbs and minerals, the FDA does not regulate essential oils. Most medical doctors don’t consider them a valid treatment for what ails you, but those who use them are believers. But check with your doctor first. If you have allergies or anaphylaxis, you’ll probably want to avoid most essential oils. By and large, though, they’re worth a try.

9. Massage Therapy

According to a 2002 study conducted by the Touch Research Institute at the University of Miami, along with staff from the university’s neurology department and Duke University’s pharmacology department, Parkinson’s disease symptoms are reduced by massage therapy. In this study, the group of adults with Parkinson’s disease who received two massages a week for five weeks experienced improved daily functioning, increased quality of sleep and decreased stress-hormone levels. The study’s authors reported, “These findings suggest that massage therapy enhances functioning in progressive or degenerative central nervous system disorders or conditions.”

While several different massage modalities have been quantifiably researched in the context of Parkinson’s, including Trager, Alexander Technique and Swedish massage, all modalities report improvement in function, from the reduction of rigidity and improvement of sleep, to the reduction of tremor and increase of daily activity stamina.

10. Medical Marijuana (CBD)

The two primary chemicals that are isolated from the cannabis plant are Delta-9-tetrahydrocannibinol (THC) and Cannabidiol (CBD). THC exerts the mind-altering effects that recreational marijuana is known for, whereas CBD does not. For the most part, medical marijuana consists of purified combinations of these two chemicals in varying ratios. The combination can be dispensed as a liquid, pill or nasal spray. Both THC and CBD interact with the ECS.


You can volunteering for Trial with The Michael J. Fox Foundation.

The Michael J. Fox Foundation, a nonprofit dedicated to funding research into therapies for Parkinson’s disease, supports research to identify new targets for therapies as well as improving current therapies.

Netflix Documentary: Heal

Director Kelly Noonan Gores’ documentary takes us on a scientific and spiritual journey where we discover that our thoughts, beliefs, and emotions have a huge impact on our health and ability to heal. The latest science reveals that we are not victims of unchangeable genes, nor should we buy into a scary prognosis. The fact is we have more control over our health and life than we have been taught to believe.

This film will empower you with a new understanding of the miraculous nature of the human body and the extraordinary healer within us all. HEAL not only taps into the brilliant minds of leading scientists and spiritual teachers but follows three people on actual high stakes healing journeys. Healing can be extremely complex and deeply personal, but it can also happen spontaneously in a moment. Through these inspiring and emotional stories, we find out what works, what doesn’t, and why.

Now available on Netflix!!! Or you can rent or buy via online platforms such as iTune, Amazon, etc. 

導演Kelly Noonan Gores的紀錄片帶我們進行科學和靈性之旅,探索我們的思想,信念和情緒對我們的健康和療癒能力有巨大影響。 最新的科學研究發現,我們不是無法改變基因的受害者,我們也不應該相信可怕的醫療預測結果。 事實上,我們對健康和生命的控制力是比我們被教導的要多。

這部電影將讓您對人體的神奇自癒和我們所有人當中那些非凡的療癒者有新的認識。 HEAL不僅能夠吸引領先科學家和靈性導師的傑出思想,而且還會跟隨三個人實際進行的高風險療癒之旅。 治療可能非常複雜且非常個人化,但它也可能在一瞬間自發發生。 通過這些鼓舞人心和情感的故事,我們發現哪些有效,哪些無效,以及為什麼。

植村秀: 全能奇蹟金萃潔顏油


植村秀是我以前在台灣常用的牌子, 它的潔顏油從經典的黃色款, 到後來的綠色和粉紅色款, 這次我發現他還有一款新的全能奇蹟金萃潔顏油 (ultime8∞ sublime beauty cleansing oil) 是含有人蔘, 山茶花和金竹, 450 ml (台灣百貨公司賣NT$3650 / 桃園機場賣NT$3100 或二罐特價組NT$5450/美國網路賣US$95), 另有150 ml 可選.

專櫃小姐示範使用方式給我看, 然後給我試用包, 今天剛好有上妝就來試試看, 發現效果非常好, 所以來跟大家分享. 專櫃小姐說每天都應該用這個潔顏油來洗臉, 不管有沒有上妝, 但是有上粉底, 眼妝, 才真正看得出來它的厲害之處啊!!

全臉的用量是按四下, 手是乾的, 直接將潔顏油塗抹在乾臉上, 輕輕畫圈按摩的方式, 把整個臉走過一遍, 如果有上眼妝和唇妝, 就在這幾處多按摩, 全部都卸好後, 將手洗淨, 手溼, 往臉上按摩, 第二次將手沾溼, 再往臉上按摩, 一共做四次, 再用水潑臉洗淨, 就算完成. 它真的把防水的眼線和睫毛膏都輕鬆卸得乾淨, 而皮膚也沒有乾緊的感覺, 非常好用啊!!! 再也不用棉花棒沾卸眼唇液慢慢的卸妝, 不用拉扯眼部細緻的皮膚, 更好.

美國現在沒有植村秀的專櫃了, 只能網上購買. 若有回台灣, 機場的價格挺好的!!

另外,科學家還發現,靜坐時大腦中出現的大量α波,可很明顯的促進一種荷爾蒙激素的增長,從而會使血管擴大和血液暢通,會使人體機構組織細胞進行新陳代謝不可缺少的物質— —

三磷酸腺甙明顯增高,會大大增加人體的免疫功能。 據《世界科技譯報》報導:美國瑪赫里希處置大學,自然醫學和預防中心主任羅伯特•施奈德經多年研究後說:「超脫靜坐似乎能夠恢復身體的自我修復機制和自我平衡的機制,它對神經激素和部分神經系統都起作用,從而有助於緩解心髒病和其它一些疾病的症狀……這種技術是一個自然輕鬆的過程,能使你達到舒適安靜的機敏狀態。」



久坐必有禪 小乘佛教講:「久坐必有禪。」 靜坐不但可增長功力及養生療疾,另外還可以開悟增智、頓悟宇宙人生大道。







《大智度論》曰:「 菩薩身雖遠離眾生心常不捨,靜處求定獲得實慧以度一切。」

《昭德新編》中云:「 水靜極形像明,心靜極則智慧生。」

超覺靜思是大腦充分發揮機能最高技術 根據地球物理學家測定得知,空間電離層與地球共振的休曼波是8至14赫茲,而這個頻率與人體打坐入靜時的腦電波基本相近,故在物我兩忘的空靈境界下打坐會發生人天共振證悟人生大道、宇宙真諦。科學家經實驗還證明:通過有序的訓練,人體完全可以學會控制和調節自己的大腦電波,而當身體和精神完全處於放鬆狀態時,其記憶力幾乎是無窮無盡的,並發現這些人的記憶沒有明顯的飽和點。


許多科學家認為:超覺靜思是大腦充分發揮機能最高技術,它能夠巧妙地激發大腦的左半球的力量去影響右半球,從而使右腦最大限度地發揮思維能力。 綜上所論,禪修的作用不僅僅是強身健體、袪病延年、開慧增智,它還對探討研究功法和人體生命科學的奧秘起著積極的作用,它甚至對科學技術的發展及揭開自然界之謎都有著深遠的意義和作用。


習練過冥想打坐的人都說,打坐使他們精力充沛,有些人表示他們只需要短暫的睡眠即可。雖然許多研究顯示,打坐時腦部活動的腦波形式改變了,且神經元自發放電節率會協調一致,但打坐是否真的會起到像睡眠一樣使人恢復精力的作用? 美國肯塔基大學(UniversityofKentucky)的歐哈爾與同事,通過「心理動作警覺作業」肯定了以上的問題。這是一種公認的測試睡眠缺乏對人思考敏銳度的影響的研究方法。研究人員讓受試者盯著計算機螢幕,只要看到一個影像出現就馬上按鈕。一般情況下,人們會在200-300毫秒內反應,但是一個缺乏睡眠的人則會花很長的時間,甚至有時根本就沒意識到影像的出現。歐哈爾等讓10個較為疲憊的受試者分別在經過40分鐘的睡覺、打坐、閱讀或者聊天后做以上的測試。

令研究人員震驚的是,儘管所有的受試者都從來沒有習練過冥想打坐,但經過40分鐘打坐,他們馬上就有卓越的表演;而40分鐘的小睡後,受試者則需至少1小時才能從朦朧中清醒過來,做出較好的表現;閱讀或者聊天對恢復精力沒任何幫助。 歐哈爾說,在冥想打坐40分鐘後受試者每個部份的測驗表現都得到了改善。在受試者一個晚上沒有睡覺的情況下,冥想打坐帶來的效果尤其驚人。




Beta / β波(14HZ以上)人清醒時大部份時間處於β波為優勢波的狀態。隨著β波的增加,身體逐漸呈緊張狀態,因而削減了體內免疫系統能力,此時人的能量消耗加劇,容易疲倦,若不充分休息,容易堆積壓力。適當的β波對注意力提升以及認知行為的發展有積極作用。

Alpha / α波(8——14HZ)α波為優勢波時,人的意識清醒,但身體卻是放鬆的,它提供意識與潛意識的橋樑。

Theta / θ波(4——8HZ)θ波為優勢波時,人的意識處於半醒半睡的入夢狀態,身體深沉放鬆,對於外界的信息呈現高度的受暗示狀態,即被催眠狀態。θ波對於觸發深沉記憶、增加靈感、提高創造力、強化長期記憶等幫助極大,所以θ波被稱為「通往記憶與學習的閘門」。

Delta / δ波(0.4——4HZ)δ波為優勢波時,為深度睡眠、無意識狀態。人的睡眠品質好壞與δ波有非常直接的關係。δ波睡眠是一種無夢很深沉的睡眠狀態,如果在輾轉難眠時自己召喚出近似δ波狀態,就能很快的擺脫失眠進入深沉睡眠。睡美容覺追求的就是這種時間短但深沉的睡眠。此外,根據科學研究,δ波亦是開發人類直覺雷達系統,以及超能神秘力量的關鍵。


根據2007年美國政府一份調查發現,美國打坐人口超過二千萬,也就是每11人中就有一人在過去有打坐的經驗。越來越多的醫學中心也開始教導病患打坐冥想以減輕疼痛和壓力。在各診所和醫院,各式的冥想課程有二百多種,多數都是將注意力集中在一個心像、一個聲音或者自己的呼吸上。雖然表面上看起來很簡單,但是這種做法的確起作用。 一些基金會也與學校合作,提供課程讓學生在校園練習打坐冥想。小學的老師說,教兒童打坐可使他們安定下來,同時能夠延長注意力持續的時間、增加專注、增進記憶力。





藉助先進的大腦掃瞄技術,科學家已經開始證明,打坐能直接影響大腦的功能與構造。以腦部掃瞄研究長期打坐的人,對照另一組從未打坐者,發現長期打坐的人其大腦中主宰專注、身體內部感覺敏銳度的區域增厚了。這些人會警覺到自己憤怒或忐忑不安時引起的肌肉緊繃。 今年5月加州大學洛杉磯分校的研究發現,打坐的人大腦中負責注意力與調節情緒的部份,其容積較大,而且大腦灰白質較多,可以提高智力功能。此外,大腦皮質有一塊區域會隨著年紀老邁而自然變稀薄,而打坐可以減緩變化的速度。


威斯康辛大學的神經學家理察戴維森說,他的研究發現,即使是打坐新手,其大腦中對人類有益的區域也有更多的活化作用。這些區域越活化,身體對流感疫苗的抗體反應更大,更能增強疫苗的保護作用。藉由改變大腦,打坐影響了許多生物過程。隨著研究的不斷擴大,科學家解開了更多圍繞著打坐冥想的謎團。而對於那些長期打坐的人,其效益早已不證自明。35歲的俄亥俄州眾議員提姆瑞安每天離家前至少打坐45分鐘,因為國會山莊喧騰的議事讓他非得養精蓄銳才能泰然自若地應對。他表示,打坐幫助他維持思緒清明,注意力更集中,使他能成為一個更好的聽眾,並能迅速作出具洞察力的分析。他說,我比過去更醒覺,也更享受我的生活。 對於「打坐」大家應該並不陌生,也知道是想要靜心或修行的人採用的方式。但是打坐到底有什麼效果呢?



紐伯格博士比較了西藏喇嘛在打坐中及打坐後,大腦皮層活動部位的變化。他利用一種叫作正電子斷層掃描(SPECT)的技術,通過比較喇嘛在打坐入定和出定後的大腦局部血流斷層顯像,觀察大腦局部血流量的變化,從而推斷打坐入定時大腦哪些部位活動增強,哪些部位活動減弱,來了解打坐冥想時大腦皮層的活動情況。 研究發現,打坐入定時大腦的額葉,也就是大腦的前部活動增強,但大腦的枕葉,即大腦的後部活動減弱。紐伯格博士解釋:「通常在人們集中註意在某一特定事物時,大腦的前部活動增強,同時,大腦的後部活動會明顯減弱,這個部位一般被認為是在方向感、立體感等方面起作用。這些結果可以說明為何人們在冥想打坐中,通常有忘我及失去時間、空間的感覺,這正是實驗中所觀察到的。」


紐伯格博士談到,自己從兒時起就一直在思考關於現實、真理和神的問題,這些思考也引導他日後利用神經科學及大腦影像技術的專長,進行大腦、心靈和宗教修習之間關係的研究,這些研究有助於了解宗教修習對心理和生理健康的影響。他談到研究發現健康與心理有直接的關係,且顯示打坐能幫助降低血壓,減慢心率,減少焦慮和減輕抑鬱,他也認為對物質世界和人類內在世界的研究,對人類來說是同樣有益處的。 紐伯格博士還發現到一個特別的現象。他在研究中發現,當人們在打坐時會感受到「精神心理」方面的神奇體驗,而這種精神上感觸到的體驗,遠比日常生活中所感觸的事物,要來得更真實。 這也說明,人們在精神心理方面所經歷的體驗,可能比我們日常用感官所感受到的,感觸更為強烈且更清晰,更具有真實感。
