Reiki is a Japanese word. Rei means the mysterious, transcendental spirit; Ki means light and energy. Reiki is the universal life force that can be channelled and applied through the hands to specific areas of a patient or oneself for healing. Energy blocks can be lifted, one is left feeling harmonized, relaxed and revitalized. Giving oneself Reiki is simple and effective. It can be done at any time, sitting, lying or standing. By laying the hands on different positions, not only are the corresponding body functions such as the endocrine and chakras systems stimulated, but one also experiences a general improvement of the whole being, be it at the physical, mental or spiritual level. This card gives the main 'hand laying positions' and the various benefits, the corresponding organs, body parts and chakras involved for each position as well as affirmations and stones that can be used to reinforce those effects.

From her background as a physician, she brings a scientific precision to using the foot as a map of the body and all of its systems.

Total Reflexology presents each of the major body systems in turn--from the digestive system to the brain--using 30 full-color newly mapped foot diagrams that provide precise indications of pressure points and their correspondences to all areas of the body. The author also includes her latest work using craniosacral therapy and the role of cerebrospinal fluid in reflexology as well as how to integrate use of the chakra system. She shows how finely tuned reflexology stimulates the body's self-healing abilities, making this an indispensable resource for the layman and professional alike. MARTINE FAURE-ALDERSON, D.O., had integrated naturopathy, acupuncture, and homeopathy into her medical practice for 25 years before she began her training in reflexology in the 1960s. She combines all these complementary holistic disciplines in her treatment and diagnoses of patients and in her research andteaching at her Total Reflexology Therapy school in Paris.

Since ancient times, the yogis of India know that not only the body is receptive to sound, but also that it is formed and sustained by vibratory frequencies (mantras). The simple mantras (from the Sanskrit 'manas' meaning 'thought' or 'conscience'; and 'tra', 'what protects') are phonemes, sound units, of the Sanskrit mantric alphabet. They are used at the highest levels of tantra and raja yoga and protect from the constant mental flow of thoughts, fears, apprehensions, illusions...Practised with assiduity, the intonation of mantras activates the psychic energies. This chart explains the use of the mantric alphabet and illustrates the zones of resonance for healing of the body and energetic dynamisation.

Osteopathy and Obstetrics (Paperback): Stephen Sandler Osteopathy and Obstetrics (Paperback)

Some practitioners hesitate to be involved with manipulation techniques and pregnancy. "Osteopathy and Obstetrics" demonstrates that there is no scientific evidence to support such fears. During a pregnancy the patient is going to change both anatomically and physiologically in every part of her body. The obvious signs of this change include growth of the abdomen, change of shape of the spine and pelvis and the growth of the breast tissue. What is not so obvious are the changes to the cardiothoracic system, the gastrointestinal system and the renal system. Changes to the reproductive system are obvious only at the end of the pregnancy. Osteopathic practitioners with their structural, cranio-sacral, myofascial and visceral techniques are uniquely placed to facilitate these changes. This book looks at each body system, discovers the way that the system changes, and then suggests and demonstrates specific osteopathic techniques and diagnostic methods to allow the practitioner and student to practise obstetric osteopathy efficiently. Each section contains up to date references so that science-based medical principles are respected and followed. Safety issues are constantly emphasised so that the treatment experience is a pleasant and successful one for both patient and practitioner. The book is divided into sections dealing above the diaphragm, below the diaphragm, and in the pelvis. Each section is illustrated by photographs and supported by text boxes and line diagrams. The author is a practicing osteopath and has 30 years experience of teaching osteopathy and obstetrics. In 1980 he set up the first clinic to treat expectant mothers at the British School of Osteopathy . He has written this book to satisfy the demand of student osteopaths and mature practitioners wherever osteopathy is taught and practised. Introduction Chapter One :The Physiology of the female hormones during pregnancy Chapter Two: Above the Diaphragm Chapter Three: Treatment techniques for the cervical and thoracic spine, ribs, diaphragm and mediastinum during pregnancy .

Optimize your health by learning the inherent strengths and weaknesses of your body type
- Explains the 4 major body types of Korean Sasang medicine; the best foods, exercises, and herbs for each; and what to avoid
- Reveals how the Yin Yang energy balance of the bodily organs relates to the emotional balance and health of each body type
- Provides 2 different self-tests to determine your type
Deeply rooted in the classics of Oriental medicine, the ancient Korean art of Sasang medicine explains how we each are born with a specific body "type" that establishes our physical and emotional strengths and weaknesses. These traits have a direct influence on how we interact with others and react to stress, trauma, and illness. Discovering your type can empower you to make the best choices regarding your health and well-being.
In this book, Dr. Gary Wagman explores the 4 major body types of Sasang medicine and 2 different self-tests to determine your type. He explains the balance of Yin and Yang energy within the organs for each type and how this underlies your emotional tendencies and health patterns. With a strong spleen and weaker kidneys, for example, the Yang type A person will be inclined to anger and susceptible to urinary complaints. Offering stories from his Sasang medical practice, as well as his own healing, the author shows how organ excesses and deficiencies are often the culprit in emotional and psychological issues and how addressing these energetic imbalances can bring about lasting change.
Dr. Wagman provides an extensive look at the most beneficial foods for each type and those that could be harmful, as well as which forms of exercise are most effective. He shows which herbs are most compatible for you and which could exacerbate your inborn energetic imbalances. He offers Sasang approaches for a range of common conditions, from high blood pressure, aching joints, and allergies to common colds, inadequate sleep, and weight gain. He also introduces ways to enhance spiritual well-being by balancing your innate emotional strengths and weaknesses. Addressing the body, mind, and spirit, discovering your Yin Yang body type provides the key to optimizing physical, emotional, and spiritual health.

Conceptualised in opposition to 'orthodox' medicine, homoeopathy, a western medical project originating in eighteenth-century Germany, was reconstituted as vernacular medicine in British Bengal. India went on to become the home of the largest population of users of homoeopathic medicine in the world. Combining insights from the history of colonial medicine and the cultural histories of family in British India, Shinjini Das examines the processes through which western homoeopathy was translated and indigenised in the colony as a specific Hindu worldview, an economic vision and a disciplining regimen. In tracing the localisation of German homoeopathy in a British Indian province, this book analyses interactions between Calcutta-based homoeopathic family firms, disparate contributors to the Bengali print market, the British colonial state and emergent nationalist governments. The history of homoeopathy in Bengal reveals myriad negotiations undertaken by the colonised peoples to reshape scientific modernity in the subcontinent.

A comprehensive look at the many therapeutic and ecological uses of neem.
* Used in India for over 4,000 years, neem is one of the most popular therapeutic plants in the Indian pharmacopoeia.
* Effective in the treatment of fever, malaria, skin diseases, dental problems, diabetes, arthritis, and jaundice.
* A natural pesticide hailed by many for its diverse ecological benefits.

In India-- where it has been used for more than 4,000 years-- the neem tree has such a variety of medical applications that it is sometimes referred to as the village pharmacy. Now modern research is proving what has been long known by Ayurvedic medicine practitioners: neem is one of the most effective plant medicines in the world. An extremely powerful blood purifying agent and detoxicant, neem is also effective in the treatment of fever, malaria, skin diseases, dental problems, diabetes, tumors, arthritis, and jaundice. It has gained particular attention from scientists seeking a cure for AIDS, not only for its antiviral properties, but also because it boosts the immune system on all levels without destroying beneficial bacteria, unlike synthetic antibiotics.

In addition to its numerous uses as a healing agent, neem has been receiving much attention for the ecological benefits it provides. For centuries Indians have been mixing neem leaves with stored grains to prevent insect infestation. But neem is not simply a natural alternative to pesticides; increasingly it is being used to reverse desertification and to reduce erosion and deforestation, making it an important weapon in the fight against global warming. Neem's many practical applications make it of enormous interest to anyone concerned about health and ecology. Included are recipes and practical tips that let you enjoy the many benefits of this miraculous plant.
