2. The treatment of disease, illness, or some other physical disorder; therapeutics.
2. A relaxation technique utilizing self-suggestion, and meditation.
Autogenic Therapy is a research based relaxation technique that promotes self empowerment and peace of mind.
"Autogenic" means generated from within and once learned, Autogenic Therapy becomes a skill for life which can help to reduce stress and increase well being.
Autogenic Training (AT) is a relaxation technique, a psycho-physiologically-based form of autonomic self-regulation, and a self-help resource for health.
It is a method of inducing the relaxation response which is opposite to the stress response, bringing about a healthy balance between the sympathetic (fight or flight) and the parasympathetic (rest renewal and repair) activities of the body's autonomic nervous system.
Autogenic training, devised in the early 1900s by German psychiatrist and neurologist, J. H. Schultz, first published in 1932, is a way of using suggestive words or phrases; such as, "I feel calm" or "I feel heavy" to passively encourage your body to relax.
Dr. Schultz' method, known as autogenous training, teaches a people to create a feeling of warmth and heaviness throughout their bodies; thereby experiencing a profound state of physical relaxation, bodily health, and mental peace.
Once you become proficient at it, you can use autogenics to overcome addictions (such as smoking or gambling), change unwanted behaviors (such as nail biting), and resolve anxieties (such as fear of flying).
In fact, you can use autogenics to help overcome just about any psychological or physiological problem; and the results will vary (a) according to the severity of the problem and (b) according to your own discipline and confidence.
The use of such a technique is used in psychology, or psychiatry, to treat severe psychiatric disorders.
Electroconvulsive therapy is primarily used when rapid definitive response is required for either medical or psychiatric reasons; such as, for a patient who is extremely suicidal and when the risks of other treatments outweigh the risk of ECT.
There is a use for this type of treatment with specific types of mental illness; especially, if acute depression and suicidal intentions are present.
Such convulsions can sometimes treat clinical depressions which can not be treated with medication.
It is used in the treatment of stress, anxiety disorders, chronic pain, and hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating).
2. A treatment of certain mental disorders by passing an electric current of 85-110 volts through the brain.
3. The use of electric current to produce unconsciousness or convulsions in the treatment of psychotic disorders; especially, depressive disorders.
4. The induction of convulsive seizures by the passing of an electric current through the brain.
It is sometimes used in the treatment of acute depression.
Electrosleep therapy is said to be beneficial for patients with anxieties, depressions, gastric distress, insomnia, personality disorders, and schizophrenia.
2.Therapy programs that focus primarily on horse handling, riding techniques, and on the therapeutic benefits of the relationships between the "patients" and the horses.
Riding horses for therapeutic purposes has helped children with a very wide range of disabilities, including Autism Spectrum Disorder, substance abuse, Multiple Sclerosis, Muscular Dystrophy, amputation, developmental disorders, spinal cord injury, brain injury, Cerebral Palsy, seizure disorders, visual and hearing impairment, learning disorders, emotional problems, anxiety disorder, behavioral problems, and other problems.
Equine therapy is founded on the principle that, through working with horses, students can learn life skills that initiate change.
All aspects of horses and horsemanship are used in the program, from bareback riding, to jumping, to barrel racing, to young horse training.
Horsemanship skills are integrated with team building activities, experiential learning, and therapy groups to create a variety of beneficial programs.
Riding horses improves muscle tone, balance, posture, motor coordination, concentration, self-confidence, and self-esteem according to the those who are involved with equine therapy.
2. The treatment of disease by exposing the body to sunlight.
2. The use of ultraviolet radiation in treatment of diseases, particularly those affecting the skin.
3. Ultraviolet therapy, it the use of ultraviolet electromagnetic radiation in the treatment of disease, usually of the skin, is used in humans, but not commonly employed in veterinary medicine.
This is the part of the sun's spectrum that causes sunburn and tanning.
Meditation therapy is a physically calming treatment for the body and mind and some clinical trials have shown that such procedures can be a valuable therapy for reducing stress levels and in helping to treat stress-related disorders.
Proton therapy's promise lies in its ability to destroy cancerous cells while sparing healthy cells half a millimeter away, reducing side effects. It also allows doctors to ramp up the radiation dose, theoretically improving cure rates.
The precise targeting is possible because the subatomic particles release the bulk of their destructive energy beneath the skin, at the tumor's depth, rather than near the surface, as X-rays do; and while standard radiation tends to cause damage to healthy tissues on the far side of tumor, protons slow and stop as they release their energy pulse, eliminating a harmful exit dose.2. A precise form of radiation treatment for cancer and other conditions.
It is said to minimize damage to healthy tissue and surrounding organs, and such proton treatment is considered to be highly successful and it results in fewer side effects.
Therapy is directed to assist such patients in recognizing and accepting the present situation.
The main technique is confrontation; the therapist consistently confronts the client with the reality of the situation.
Illness or pathology is viewed as a defense against the real world. The purpose of the confrontation is to minimize distortion.

2. To bleed patients for medical treatment by the use of leeches.
3. A nursing intervention from the Nursing Interventions Classification (NIC) defined as application of medicinal leeches to help drain replanted or transplanted tissue engorged with venous blood.
Thousands of patients currently owe the successful reattachment of body parts to miraculous technological advances in plastic and reconstructive surgery; however, at least some of these operations might have failed if leeches had not been reintroduced into the operating room. The appendages reattached include fingers, hands, toes, legs, ears, noses and scalps.
