Hello, I am Bliss Nadela and that girl on my right shoulder is my daughter Hannah.
Thank you first of all for taking your time reading this page. The main reason why I started this site is based on my experiences with children who were deprived due to poverty and lack of education. First I have to tell you that I came from a third world country called the Philippine Islands. I was born and raised there and already finished my college education before migrating to the US. In my country, many kids will attend school up to 6th grade only. Since parents are also uneducated, children tend to follow them. I saw a lot of sad and unhappy children during my clinical rotations in different places of assignments when I was in medical school. I have seen a lot and it broke my heart to see them.
Today’s world have evolved much better from 20 years back. Now, we have seen people especially parents heading towards natural ways of treating diseases without drugs. Some parents believed that giving vaccines to their children are more detrimental to their health than not having one at all. I don’t blame this group of people in what they believe, there should be a significant reason why they were brought into this kind of thinking.
Let me ask you personally, since you are here reading my message. Have your beliefs about over medicating ourselves and our children every time we get sick changed, due to the evolving harder to treat illnesses brought about by drug resistance and drug dependence? Are you looking for alternative ways to treat your children naturally and effectively without the use of drugs? Hope your views coincide with mine since our society now has changed way too much! Doctors are dispensing drugs faster than ever, and because of that many patients are now drug seekers. I don’t know if doctors are primary to blame this trend, I hope not! I take medications only when I really need to because I believe the body can heal itself when you give it a chance to heal naturally.
YOUR HANDS CAN HEAL WITH CHILDREN’S ACUPRESSURE is a way to learn and educate yourself without the use of drugs. It is natural, painless and very effective!
Many years back when I was juggling my thoughts of what career to pursue in life, I had encountered a lot of indecisiveness and emotions. To make the story short, I ended up enrolling in a master’s course in Oriental Medicine (adding to my already MD from the Philippines), in Wisconsin. My master’s thesis chosen was about Pediatric Acupressure. Since I found it so fascinating how this kid in my country got better by massage only, not with medications (since first of all they cannot afford drugs, so massage is their primary way to go first). After graduation from this oriental medicine and acupuncture-herbal medicine studies, I went back to the Philippines and applied all that I knew about Chinese pediatric massage, acupressure, and acupuncture.
To my big surprise, it REALLY worked in almost all of my patients!
Sometimes I was believing could it be the placebo effect? If it is, it does not matter, what mattered was the relief they reported back to me (in 1999). The effect is instantaneous or near instant. I got very positive feedbacks from parents and friends how it helped their children. I was so happy hearing their comments and I wondered how come not so many people use these techniques?
I found out that many who practiced children’s massage knew the techniques from their parents and grandparents, and it is a guarded know how and they were not willing to share it. Then, I went back to the US. In the US I encountered another wall, my chosen career did not really progress well and cannot sustain a better living so I enrolled in nursing. Now I am a nurse, a really good nurse as what they say (seasoned by 3 degrees probably, lol).
So now I was really thinking that I need to share what I knew to the world, and I am not going to keep it to myself unlike the massage therapist in the Philippines who are kind of belonging to a secret sect or society that they do not want you to get into. I decided to post this knowledge here in this website. I will be covering many common childhood illnesses that can be treated with pediatric acupressure.
Take note that not all common childhood illnesses need medications, some are self-limiting and sometimes touch therapy is what is all needed to heal (before rushing the child to the doctor’s office). You will save time, effort, money, and unnecessary stress in life.
But I will be honest here that pediatric acupressure is not for everything. I am a doctor and I know when to bring your child to the experts. Examples are a condition called status asthmaticus where the child does not respond to medications after several doses of a bronchodilator, generalized epilepsy needed to be seen in emergency, trauma, fever of unknown origin, and bleeding, just to mention a few.
Hope what I was discussing above will help you find the way to what you are looking for. Continue visiting this site from time to time and I hope you will find valuable information that you need to know all about pediatric acupressure.
P.S. My daughter is a testimony of my skills in pediatric acupressure. She loved acupressure very much because she feels a true sense of comfort, love and bonding between me and herself when she is sick?Every time she has a headache, leg pains, stomach pain, diarrhea/vomiting, and cough/cold and fever, mommy comes to the rescue all the time. Always happy to the end. If you know of a friend, family member, and neighbors who you think might need the information presented here, please refer them to this site. Thank you and God Bless!
