Gua sha E 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

The Guide to Modern Cupping Therapy Excerpt :

An ancient technique has found its place in the modern world of healing. In recent years countless high profile athletes and celebrities have been sporting distinctive circular "cupping" welts on their bodies -- the back and shoulder area being most common. Dating back thousands of years, cupping is a form of alternative medicine. The cups create suction and help with pain, inflammation, blood flow, deep relaxation and can even provide relief for sciatica and sinus congestion. Massage Cupping body therapy is a modern and modified version of cupping therapy that creates suction and negative pressure through the use of both stationary and moving cups. These cups are available at pharmacies and do not use heat like old-fashioned glass cupping -- making them entirely safe and easy for home use. Shannon Gilmartin is a Certified Massage Cupping and MediCupping Educator who teaches this wonderfully diverse therapy and has witnessed the positive outcomes for patients. This book shares all her extraordinary professional and hands-on experience, so that everyone can experience the positive benefits of cupping. Nearly 200 step-by-step photos and full color pages make it easy to follow this expert instruction.

Sports Cupping Excerpt :

Have you ever hurt yourself while working out? Are you looking for a simple, inexpensive treatment method? Cupping could be the answer! For thousands of years, cupping has been practiced in countries like China, Egypt, and Greece. By heating a glass cup and pressing it against pressure points on the body, therapists can encourage healing and promote good health. If you're cupping at home, you will use the vacuum-cupping method, which replaces glass cups with plastic, rubber, or silicone, so you don't need to involve fire. This therapy has become increasingly popular among athletes who frequently deal with sore muscles, stretched ligaments, and other health problems. In Sports Cupping - A Beginner's Guide to Cupping Therapy for Athletes at Any Level, you'll learn about the history of cupping and all its benefits. According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, all of life is sustained by energy known as "qi," and the human body is no exception.

By applying cupping, you can activate healthy qi flow again, strengthen your immune system, and prevent diseases. In this book, you'll learn how to treat injuries like: Hamstring strains Groin pulls Shin splints Lower back pain Knee injuries Tennis elbow Neck pain We'll also cover health conditions that can affect an athlete's performance, like anxiety, depression, nausea, and insomnia. If you're an active person or a professional athlete, you are at risk for injuries. This book provides you with detailed guides on where to cup and other treatment options like changes in your diet and herbal medicine. You'll also learn about specific essential oils and herbs that can enhance your cupping experience, and complementary treatments that therapists often offer.
