Client Testimonials

What Clients Are Saying About OEW

For the past 2 days I was in a lot of pain – in my lower back, many different muscles. Marie Oliver evaluated my body alignment, which got completely messed up. She worked on me for over an hour, which helped immensely, and gave me advice on what to do to help myself. I can’t tell you how grateful I feel. She has helped me more than anyone.

Eugeniya HilzingerWholistic Young Living Consultant

I have been a client of Marie Oliver for over a year now. Her combination of myofascial release and acupressure therapies has worked wonders for my back pain. I recommended Marie to my wife and now she is a client.

John Manley

I began seeing Marie Oliver for acupressure and myofascial release in 2014 due to some physical pain in my hips, shoulders and neck, and around my ribcage.  She came very highly recommended to me from a few trusted sources – one who had a visible physical improvement due to her bodywork with Marie.

Pal Dan Gum- a Way to Balance Energy and Increase Awareness

Pal Dan GumPal Dan Gum or the eight silken movements are a set of qigong exercises used in Korea and China for thousands of years to increase spiritual awareness and promote health and longevity. These 8 silken movements take only 10 minutes to perform and when done daily along with focused breathing strengthen the vital essence and balance the energy in the meridians.  They also increase circulation, promote flexibility and strength. Each movement stretches the energy in a specific meridian.

You can find a video of the Pal Dan Gum exercises on YouTube.

Staying and Healthy All Year Round

We’ve talked about the energy pathways most active in summer and the importance of staying balanced both physically and emotionally to promote optimum health.  The advice for the summer season includes staying hydrated with fluids and eating cooling foods such as fruits and salads to maintain a comfortable body temperature.

The importance of eating healthy food cannot be understated to maintain good health.  It is also important to minimize the ingestion of stimulating foods every season of the year.  Foods such as coffee, sugar, and chocolate, which are also addicting, if overdone will deplete our adrenal glands.

In today’s world where so many people are multitasking and subject to deadlines; coffee, chocolate, and sugar can be very comforting.  When these foods are used as an energy source adrenal exhaustion which may lead to chronic fatigue and a weakened immune system may result.

The adage “everything in moderation” still makes sense.  Have fun outside during the beautiful weather!

Pericardium Meridian – Heart Protector

Pericardium is the partner of Triple Warmer Meridian and like TW it is not a physical organ. Anatomically the pericardium is the protective sack around the heart. In Chinese Medicine, the Pericardium Meridian is defined as a fire -energy organ which protects the heart.

The Pericardium Meridian protects the heart both physically and emotionally. Physically it buffers the heart from trauma. Emotionally it protects the heart from damaging excessive emotions generated by other meridians. Extreme emotions of anger, grief, and fear over an extended period of time are regarded as causes of disease in Chinese Medicine. The pericardium also helps with the regulation of circulation in the major blood vessels of the heart.

Pericardium energy is related to the loving feelings associated with sex. It links the physical with the emotional: it moderates the sexual energy of the kidney with the loving energy of the heart.
Peak time for the pericardium is 7 pm -9 pm.

Triple Warmer- Summer Meridian

springtime meridiansThe Triple Warmer in Traditional Chinese Medicine is not associated with an organ, but this energy flow is responsible for moving and transforming various fluids and solids throughout the body. It also plays a huge role in maintaining and creating the body’s protective energy or immune system.

This meridian has three parts or burners:

  • The upper burner- head and chest
  • The middle burner- abdomen
  • The lower burner-pelvis

The upper burner controls intake

the middle burner controls transformation

and the lower burner controls elimination


The Triple Warmer is important because it is in contact with all systems of the body, including the nervous system. When the TW is imbalanced physical and emotional symptoms can occur.

These symptoms can include:

  • overwhelm
  • anxiety
  • sleep difficulties
  • mood instability

To calm the Triple Warmer have your energy balanced. You can also check YouTube for exercises to calm Triple Warmer https://blog.timesunion.com/holistichealth/stress-management-through-energy-medicine/16325/

The Summer Meridians

summertime

Nature is most energetically active in summer and it is also the same within our bodies.

Summer is associated with the fire element which includes four meridians: heart, small intestine, pericardium and triple warmer.  This is two more meridians than all the other seasons, so it is important to be balanced.

The heart moves the blood through the vessels.
Heart imbalance may include,

  • insomnia
  • nightmares,
  • palpitations,
  • feverish feelings
  • restlessness.

The pericardium meridian protects the heart and “works with the emotions.”  Balancing the pericardium can help with hot flashes or heat in the upper torso.

The small intestine meridian separates the pure from the impure.  In this way, it helps with digestion and elimination.  Mentally small intestine meridian is active in prioritizing our lives.

The triple warmer (which like the pericardium meridian is not associated with an organ) helps to control the body’s temperature and coordinates all the water functions in the body.  It also governs the sympathetic nervous system, the flight-fight -freeze response.

Foods which support the fire element have a bitter taste. Some examples are: coffee, chocolate, vinegar, pumpkin, sunflower seeds, asparagus, and wine.

Essential oils can also be helpful to support the fire element.

For palpitations or fluttering of the heart:

  • lavender
  • melissa
  • chamomile
  • peppermint
  • rose

Irritable bowel can be helped by:

  • lavender
  • tea tree
  • chamomile
  • eucalyptus
