At the deepest level of our physiology, all living tissues and fluids expand and contract with the 'breath of life'. Through gentle touch, the skilled practitioner can interact with these subtle rhythms to address physical aches and pains, acute or chronic disease, emotional or psychological disturbances, or simply to promote enduring health and vitality. This new and important textbook demystifies the biodynamic approach to craniosacral therapy and shows how and why it can be so effective at bringing about a natural realignment towards optimal health. The authors describe how to 'listen' and respond appropriately to each client's system, how to create a safe space for working with different kinds of trauma, and how to address specific states of imbalance to support deep-felt and lasting change. Throughout the book, experiential exercises encourage the reader to practice their newly-acquired skills, and refine their knowledge of human anatomy and physiology. A final chapter on practice development covers issues pertinent to practitioners trying to set up and maintain a successful practice. This intensely practical textbook will transform the practice of craniosacral therapists, and contains much that bodyworkers of all kinds will find useful.
Discover the surprising connection between your skin and gut with this easy-to-understand guide on natural treatments for eczema and other skin conditions Eczema is the most common skin disorder in the industrialized world, followed closely by psoriasis, rosacea, and acne. While conventional medicine offers no permanent solutions to these conditions, natural health author Shann Nix Jones has discovered a chemical-free method that delivers life-changing results. In the Good Skin Solution, Shann recounts her struggle to heal her son's eczema and save her husband from a life-threatening MRSA superbug infection. She was shocked to learn that eczema isn't just a skin condition after all, but an autoimmune disorder. Your skin is simply a map of your gut--and in order to heal your skin, you must start from the inside. Shann reveals the latest scientific research about the "microbiome," the vast ecosystem of microorganisms that lives inside us. In simple, easy-to-understand language, she explains the gut-skin connection: what eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, and acne really are; why they're often accompanied by hay fever, asthma, IBS, and food allergies; and how adopting the kefir-based Good Skin Solution can help treat the symptoms and the underlying causes. If you or anyone you know suffers from an ongoing skin condition, this book could be the lifeline you've been waiting for.

The number of individuals diagnosed with posttraumatic stress disorder has increased in the past decade, not only in the military and veteran population but within the civilian population as well. Traditional treatments such as pharmacotherapy and psychotherapy have provided less-than-ideal results proving to be less effective when used alone to treat the disorder.

The alternative therapies covered include acceptance and commitment therapy, acupuncture, alternative pharmacology, canine assistive therapy, family focused interventions, internet and computer-based therapy, meditation techniques, mobile applications, recreational therapy, resilience training, transracial magnetic stimulation, virtual reality exposure therapy, and yoga. Each chapter delivers the most up-to-date understanding of neurobiology, best practices, and key points for clinicians and patients considering inclusion of these treatments in patient care. COL David Benedek and LTC Gary Wynn offer insight into the future of complementary and alternative medicine, shining a light onto how these techniques fit into clinical practice to create the most beneficial treatments for the patient. This book is both an essential resource and practical guide to everyday clinical interactions. It is a necessary addition to the medical library for students and senior clinicians alike.
