Embodied Wisdom (Paperback): Elizabeth Beringer Embodied Wisdom (Paperback)
Elizabeth Beringer
R418 R327 Discovery Miles 3 270 Save R91 (22%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

An educational system of neuromuscular re-education known for its gentle approach, the Feldenkrais Method has been shown to dramatically improve individual functioning by increasing self-awareness and facilitating new patterns of thinking, moving, and feeling. Intended for those who need to improve their movement repertoire for professional reasons--dancers, musicians, martial artists, gymnasts, and athletes--as well as those wishing to reduce pain or limitations in movement, Feldenkrais is based on the idea that learning to move better can improve anyone's overall health on many levels.
Using Moshe Feldenkrais's own words, "Embodied Wisdom" clearly explains the basic principles underpinning his techniques, Awareness Through Movement (ATM) and Functional Integration (FI). These thoughtful articles and lively, sometimes humorous interviews explore a diverse range of subjects: the importance of bodily expression, the primacy of hearing, the mind- body connection, martial arts, sleep and consciousness, movement and its effect on the mind. "Embodied Wisdom" gives readers the opportunity to deepen their understanding of the scientific and spiritual principles behind the Method and offers sound strategies for incorporating it into their lives.

What are the functions of mitochondria in the human body? Why might they stop working properly and what can happen as a result? How can personalized nutrition help to optimize mitochondrial function and prevent or address chronic conditions? This innovative book explores the incredibly complex biochemical roles of mitochondria in health and disease. When healthy, mitochondria provide us with ninety percent of our body's energy.

This guide helps practitioners to identify the mitochondrial dysfunction underlying a wide range of health complaints, and provides inspiration about relevant and emerging mitochondria-supportive dietary regimes and nutrients to explore within the model of personalized nutrition.

Justin Phillips
R567 Discovery Miles 5 670 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

This fully illustrated guide to modern acupuncture technique explores the foundational skills of the craft from a primarily energetic perspective, showing how perfecting these skills can have a profound effect on the practice of Chinese Medicine. The goal is for the clinician to be able to fully grasp what they are doing on the channels and the tissues with each of the classic manipulation techniques in a way that has hitherto been unexplored in technique textbooks, which tend to focus on the simple mechanics of technique. Organised around the structure of an actual patient encounter, the book begins with the basics of needle selection, moving through patient and practitioner position, to insertion, and then on to the various mechanical actions taken on an inserted needle, ending with the withdrawal of the needle. The skills discussed and described in this book can help expand any acupuncturist's practice through their application. Further advice and information is provided through supplementary online video demonstrations.

Applied Channel Therapy in Chinese Medicine - Wang Ju-Yi's Lectures on Channel Therapeutics (Hardcover): Wang Ju-Yi, Jason... Applied Channel Therapy in Chinese Medicine - Wang Ju-Yi's Lectures on Channel Therapeutics (Hardcover)
Wang Ju-Yi, Jason D. Robertson
R1,755 Discovery Miles 17 550 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

Applied Channel Theory in Chinese Medicine demonstrates how a deeper understanding of the interrelationship between organ and channel theory can lead to more precise diagnoses and better clinical results. This book is a collaboration between Wang Ju-Yi, one of modern China's most respected scholars, teachers, and practitioners of traditional Chinese medicine, and his American apprentice and practitioner, Jason Robertson. While most textbooks focus either on the functions of the organs in basic physiology or on the uses of the channels in treatment, this book shows the essential relationships between the two. Theory and practice are connected through a detailed discussion of a channel palpation methodology developed by Dr. Wang, which leads to more precise and effective point selection, location, and technique. Applied Channel Theory in Chinese Medicine was developed during Mr. Robertson's apprenticeship with Dr. Wang in Beijing, and is presented in a unique and highly readable format that preserves the intimacy of dialogue between apprentice and teacher, with questions and answers, narratives, and case studies.

Ayurvedic Medicine for Westerners - Anatomy and Physiology in Ayurveda (Paperback): Vaidya Atreya Smith Ayurvedic Medicine for Westerners - Anatomy and Physiology in Ayurveda (Paperback)
Vaidya Atreya Smith
R385 Discovery Miles 3 850 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

Anatomy and physiology in Ayurveda are based on the body's function rather than structure. Eventually both are of equal importance. Nevertheless, this fundamental difference is primary in understanding the logic of Ayurvedic medicine as a whole. This textbook is written for the Western student of Ayurveda who lacks the cultural context of India - the context that views the body, and creation in general, functionally. Many different details on Ayurvedic physiology are clearly distinguished from Ayurvedic anatomy in this book. Most books on this subject are either obscure, overly detailed, disorganized or confused. The goal of this textbook is to help students and practitioners of Ayurveda to better grasp the functional vision of Ayurveda through a logical, liner presentation of anatomy and physiology. The author of this textbook is a practitioner since 1987 and teaching since 1994. This unique combination allows the author, Vaidya Atreya Smith, to clearly explain the basic principles of Ayurveda. Once these concepts are thoroughly learned the following subjects of pathology, diagnosis and treatments become easy. In this book the Western student of Ayurveda will find a user friendly guide to de-crypt the profound ancient wisdom that is Ayurveda.

The book is intended to increase the awareness among physical therapists and other bodyworkers of the significance of fascia in the conditions they treat. It presents an approach developed by the author from the basis of manual therapy for the articular, muscular and neural systems. In the world of orthopaedic physiotherapy, the use of manual therapy techniques has become increasingly evidence-based, and study after study shows its efficacy along with exercise therapy for the management of the most common orthopaedic conditions. However very few physiotherapists have written about the fascial system, and there is a general ignorance within the profession of what fascia is, how it relates to the techniques they use, and why it is important to their work. The book follows the principles of assessment and treatment of the fascial lines as described by Tom Myers in his book Anatomy Trains. This book is probably the first to be written about fascia from the perspective of a physiotherapist. As practitioners dealing with musculoskeletal pain they often find that no matter what they have tried in their existing 'tool-kit', it hasn't had the positive effect they are seeking. They may also be experiencing situations where clients are complaining of multiple areas of pain that don't correspond or fit into the paradigms that physiotherapists are familiar with, even as fully trained manual therapists. What they may be missing is the fascial component. This book will introduce them to it. The book is user-friendly for the practitioner, with a minimum of theory and an emphasis on practical applications.
