China’s environment can be tough on our bodies with the smog and the humidity, it can wear our health down and for us to feel weak and even sometimes feel anxiety. So it is important for us to treat ourselves for a Deep Pressure Therapy. This therapy is on the rise and is welcomed by more and more by many especially those that have long term posture problems and suffer stiffness. 受到雾霾和湿气的侵扰,在中国的环境下生存可谓艰难模式。我们的健康状况可能每况愈下,有时我们感到虚弱无比甚至焦虑之极。所以,有时候给自己来一个高压理疗来排解压力是很有必要的。这种高压理疗如今广受欢迎,尤其对于那些长久以来有亚健康体态问题,而且感到身体僵硬的人们。 Deep Pressure Therapy is a sensory integration therapy that is applied to the surface pressure of the body to create a firm hug, hold, or swaddle affect. The result of the application of the pressure causes a relaxing and calming effect and helps relieve anxiety by regulating the sensory system that is over stimulated from the environmental input and its overload. Deep Pressure Therapy provides proprioceptive input where the user feels more grounded as it also improves balance, body and spacial awareness, and coordination. 高压理疗是一种感官综合理疗,运用于躯体表层,带来一种拥抱、裹紧、束缚的效果。理疗做完后,能达到放松镇定的效果,能通过调节感受系统帮助您缓解由环境过度负荷带来的刺激。高压理疗作为体感输入,让体验者得到更为踏实的感受,它能让您的平衡性、身体及空间意识以及协调度都有所提升。 " Adult swaddling", the new form of  DPT therapy where people are wrapped in large swaddling cloth  originated in Japan. It was called  Otonamaki, which translates as "adult wrapping", was devised by a Kyoto midwife who thought replicating how children are swaddled at birth could help mothers overcome post labor shoulder and hip pain. “成人襁褓”是高压理疗的一种新形式,这一疗法源自日本,将体验者包裹在大的襁褓中。日语中叫作Otonamaki,翻译过来也就是“成人包裹”,由京都的一名助产士发明,模仿了孩子出生时被包裹的样子,能帮助妈妈减轻产后肩膀及臀部的疼痛。 Anyone who's done a yoga class will recognize the similarities to the yogic staples of spinal rocking and child's pose. And yoga has been touted as something of an osteopathic cure-all boasting increased flexibility, improved muscle strength, injury prevention and weight reduction. Yoga's for real. Wrapping yourself up like a baby also mirrors Deep Pressure Therapy (DPT). 上过瑜伽课的人一定能把这种疗法和瑜伽脊椎摆动基本动作和小孩的姿势联系到一起。瑜伽的训练常常被当做一种万能的正骨疗法可以提高灵活度、肌肉强度、预防损伤、减轻体重。瑜伽的确如此,但是把你自己像婴儿般包裹起来,同样起到了高压理疗的功效。 So why don’t you give Otonomaki a try. 所以您何不一试呢。
