Words, Stones, and Herbs - The Healing Word in Medieval and Early Modern England (Hardcover): Louise M. Bishop Words, Stones, and Herbs - The Healing Word in Medieval and Early Modern England (Hardcover)
Louise M. Bishop
R546 Discovery Miles 5 460 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

Inspired by the profound literary history of healing, this compelling book explores the cognitive and physical effects of words in relation to the healing process. Drawing on research in cognitive linguistics applied to medieval linguistic and cognitive philosophy, Louise M. Bishop presents a highly original and theoretically challenging examination of the intersection between medical manuscript and literary texts, such as the ""Canterbury Tales"" and ""Piers Plowman"". The art of healing is treated in light of words and context, social needs, cognitive presence, material reality, and political necessity. Carefully researched and powerfully argued, ""Words, Stones, and Herbs"" convincingly establishes the healing power of words in late medieval and Tudor England.

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.

Facial Enhancement Acupuncture - Clinical Use and Application (Paperback): Paul Adkins Facial Enhancement Acupuncture - Clinical Use and Application (Paperback)
Paul Adkins
R581 Discovery Miles 5 810 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Based on Five Elements theory, this practical, fully illustrated guide to performing facial enhancement acupuncture (also known as cosmetic acupuncture, facial revitalisation or facial rejuvenation acupuncture) shows in detail the acupuncture points, techniques and equipment used in this procedure. Facial enhancement acupuncture targets points and muscles of the face in order to improve the elasticity of the skin and general overall appearance, as well as addressing constitutional points on the legs, arms and body to balance and harmonise the inner elements. The author clearly explains the rationale behind the needling of each face and neck point, which are shown in colour illustrations. He also discusses the advantages of acupuncture over surgical intervention in dealing with wrinkles and sagging jaw lines, and a chapter is included on discussing treatment with prospective patients, follow up and after care. As well as significantly improving the cosmetic appearance, facial acupuncture also has a strong whole body effect on the health and wellbeing of the person treated, and has a long and distinguished history in Chinese medicine. The book is the perfect introduction for acupuncturists and acupuncture students who want to learn how to incorporate this alternative to surgical procedures into their practice.
