Description : The modern world is largely focused on the physical—on the appetites and senses, on doing and having—which can blind us to the spiritual realm. In Natural Chi Movement, Tienko Ting articulates a theory of life that unites the physical and spiritual worlds. He suggests there is nothing to learn or master; each of us—and every living thing—is a product of the merging of physical and spiritual energy, already endowed with the capacity to thrive and heal. Activation of our chi is the component to wellness that most of us have been missing. It is the essence of the practice of Natural Chi Movement. Natural Chi Movement guides modern seekers in embracing their spiritual nature and accessing the boundless potential of energy. Doing so, says Ting, can also help address global problems from health care to ecology. Featuring 23 illustrations, the book draws on Chinese history, philosophy, and medicine, as well as from the author’s own work with spiritual energy. Natural Chi Movement is an exploration into the nature of spiritual energy and how to access and use it for vibrant health and optimal well being. Written in a simple, lucid style, Natural Chi Movement sheds much-needed light on the nature of the energy that makes up all life, opening up a world of extraordinary healing for everyone.

Description : This book highlights the impacts of emerging pollutants (both organic and inorganic) in water bodies and the role and performances of different water and wastewater treatment approaches that are presently being employed in the field of environmental engineering. Some of these approaches are focused on ‘end-of-pipe’ treatment, while most of these approaches are focused on the application of novel physic-chemical and biological techniques for wastewater treatment and reuse. The goal of this book is to present the emerging technologies and trends in the field of water and wastewater treatment. The papers in this book provide clear proof that environmentally friendly (bio)technologies are becoming more and more important and playing a critical role in removing a wide variety of organic and inorganic pollutants from water. In Focus – a book series that showcases the latest accomplishments in water research. Each book focuses on a specialist area with papers from top experts in the field. It aims to be a vehicle for in-depth understanding and inspire further conversations in the sector.
Description : The purpose of this book is to illustrate the fundamental concepts of complexity and complex behavior and the best methods to characterize this behavior by means of their applications to some current research topics from within the fields of fusion, earth and solar plasmas. In this sense, it is a departure from the many books already available that discuss general features of complexity. The book is divided in two parts. In the first part the most important properties and features of complex systems are introduced, discussed and illustrated. The second part discusses several instances of possible complex phenomena in magnetized plasmas and some of the analysis tools that were introduced in the first part are used to characterize the dynamics in these systems. A list of problems is proposed at the end of each chapter. This book is intended for graduate and post-graduate students with a solid college background in mathematics and classical physics, who intend to work in the field of plasma physics and, in particular, plasma turbulence. It will also be of interest to senior scientists who have so far approached these systems and problems from a different perspective and want a new fresh angle.

Description : No other textbook provides coverage of the essential concepts of disease processes and disorders with the specific needs of the physical therapy assistant in mind. Pathology for the Physical Therapist Assistant provides coverage of disease processes and systemic disorders as well as guidelines, precautions, and contraindications for physical therapy interventions. Catherine Goodman, Kenda Fuller, and Robbie O’Shea share their expertise in a consistent, well-organized approach that defines each disorder, describes the appropriate physical therapy assessment and intervention, and rounds out the discussion with relevant case study examples based on established practice patterns. Chapters follow a consistent organization, first defining a disorder and then describing the appropriate physical therapy assessment and intervention. Full-color art throughout clearly depicts pathologies and interventions. Case studies provide examples of physical therapy applications to help you connect theory and practice and build strong clinical reasoning skills. Special boxes highlight Clinical Signs, Interventions, and Case Studies to alert you to important information within the text. Terminology and language from the Guide to Physical Therapy Practice is used throughout to familiarize you with standardized terminology used in practice. A companion Evolve website provides additional online learning activities including online chapters, references linked to Medline, case studies, and self-test questions.
