Gua sha E Book Book Excerpt:

‘Sometimes called coining, spooning or scraping, Gua sha is defined as instrument-assisted unidirectional press-stroking of a lubricated area of the body surface that intentionally creates ‘transitory therapeutic petechiae’ representing extravasation of blood in the subcutis.’ Gua sha has been used for centuries in Asia, in Asian immigrant communities and by acupuncturists and practitioners of traditional East Asian medicine worldwide. With the expansion of traditional East Asian medicine, Gua sha has been used over broad geographic areas and by millions of people. It is valuable in the treatment of pain and for functional problems with impaired movement, the prevention and treatment of acute infectious illness, upper respiratory and digestive problems, and many acute or chronic disorders. Research has demonstrated Gua sha radically increases surface microperfusion that stimulates immune and anti-inflammatory responses that persist for days after treatment. The second edition expands on the history of Gua sha and similar techniques used in early Western Medicine, detailing traditional theory, purpose and application and illuminated by science that focuses its relevance to modern clinical practice as well as scholarly inquiry. This book brings the technique alive for practitioners, with clear discussion of how to do it – including correct technique, appropriate application, individualization of treatment – and when to use it, with over 50 case examples, and superb color photographs and line drawings that demonstrate the technique. NEW TO THIS EDITION • New chapter on immediate and significant Tongue changes as a direct result of Gua sha • Research and biomechanisms • Literature review from Chinese language as well as English language medical journal database • New case studies • Over 30 color photographs

Facial Enhancement Acupuncture Book Excerpt:

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.

The Mystical Tcm Triple Energizer Book Excerpt:

The mystery is solved! The actual location, composition, and morphology of the mysterious TCM triple energizer (San Jiao) organ will surprise you. Numerous recent scientific research findings confirm ancient TCM philosophy was eons ahead of its time. This book discusses newly discovered organ systems (Primo Vascular System, the gut microbiome, the omnipresent neuromyofascial metasystem, endocrine function of fat) and how they affect the Triple Energizer. This book elucidates the actual location, composition, and morphology of the Triple Energizer as expressed by modern scientific discovery, and evidence is presented to show how the Triple Energizer functions and why it has remained hidden all this time. Those who believe that the Triple Burner has a name but no form will be truly amazed as to its actual location and its actual form. Numerous other practical TCM concepts are discussed. A blastocyst grown on a petri dish in 1977 resulted in the very first IVF baby, Louise Brown. Commenting on the Nan Ching, Yeh Lin described the blastocyst when he said, It is the utensil that stores and transforms the essence, and it is the place to which the womb, which conceives the embryo, is tied. Thus, it is the origin of mans life. Hence, it is called gate of life. Commenting on Nan Ching, Y Shu said, The spleen takes in the five tastes. It transforms them to produce the five influences . . . and to make flesh and skin grow. Since about 2005, researchers have been astonished to find scent receptors and the five known taste sensors throughout the body smelling and tasting things deep inside of us. These taste and odor receptors have been found in the kidneys, stomach, intestines, pancreas, lungs, brain, spine, bladder, sinuses, muscle tissue, and even the anus. Bitter taste receptors have been found in sperm. Researchers believe these receptors are distributed throughout the entire vascular system. As the Heart controls the blood vessels in TCM, it makes perfect sense that the Heart masters the odors, exactly as ancient TCM scholars state.
