  • Healing Massage

    Maureen Abson

    Product Code: AUCKS
    Paperback
    This book has been written from years of experience in working with and teaching massage and seeks to provide practical information on using massage to treat a range of medical conditions. Massage has been used for thousands of years to treat a whole array of conditions and was traditionally passed down through families as part of everyday life. With the increase in modern medicine two things have happened; : firstly the power of massage has been largely forgotten, and secondly, with the increase of a litigious culture, it has been politicisedpoliticized and people have become scared to touch for fear of litigation. This book seeks to both educate and empower two groups of people; : the qualified massage practitioner wanting a ready reference book for unfamiliar conditions, and every day people wanting to help a friend or family member who is dealing with a health problem. While in many cases individuals will feel happier going to see a qualified practitioner, there may be times when for reasons of finance, life circumstances, or simply client choice, that this is not possible, and it is perfectly fine to use massage in the home.

  • Crystal Wands

    Ewald Kliegel

    Product Code: BLVCE
    Paperback
    A full-color guide to using crystal wands in bodywork and energy medicine * Explores the healing properties and indications for more than 70 crystal wands * Provides step-by-step instructions for crystal-wand techniques in massage and reflexology, in energy work such as aura tuning and chakra balancing, and for protection, power, and relaxation The healing powers of crystals and gemstones were known more than eight hundred years ago by the mystic Hildegard von Bingen and as far back as two millennia ago by the Greek physician Dioskurides. In this full-color illustrated guide, Ewald Kliegel explains the benefits of incorporating crystal wands into your bodywork and healing practice and details the techniques of doing so. The author explains how the versatile shape of a crystal wand amplifies the crystal's energetic effects and offers advantages in massage and reflexology over other shapes of crystals and stones. The larger rounded end can act as a crystal sphere for massaging knots or large areas, whereas the tapered end is ideal for stimulating reflex zones, targeting acupressure points, and tracing meridian lines. Starting with the foundational set of three wands to begin your toolkit: Rock Crystal, Red Jasper, and Aventurine, the author examines the healing properties and indications for more than 70 crystal wands. He shows how Amethyst clears the head, relaxes muscle tension, benefits the lungs, nerves, and skin, aids digestion and constipation, helps dissolve blockages and addictive behavior, and combats fatigue. He explains how crystal wands can be divided into 3 energetic categories--neutral, stimulating, or balancing--and details how to select the proper wand or wands for each healing situation. The author provides step-by-step instructions for incorporating crystal wands into massage and reflexology treatments, for their use in energy medicine, specifically for internal tuning of the aura and balancing the chakras, and for using crystal wands for protection, power, and relaxation.

    Reproductive reflexology is a minefield for practitioners with much conflicting advice being given in terms of what we can and cannot do. Many practitioners choose not to work with clients who are having difficulties conceiving or who are undertaking IVF etc as, either they feel too inexperienced or feel it is too complex for them and are not sure when and how to treat.The book provides a step-by-step guide, providing practitioners with a structured format on how to gain the information they will need from their clients, how to interpret that information, how to plan treatment and what techniques they will need to use.This allows practitioners to work, not only with clients who are trying to conceive but with a wide range of reproductive conditions.Most practitioners like to have a reference manual to refer to when they are working to provide them not only with further information on the condition they are treating but as a guide to what protocols that can use.
