Secrets Of Reflexology


Category: New Age
Description: Derived from methods of foot massage used in some ancient societies, reflexology as we know it today was popularized in the 20th century. It involves the application of pressure to specific energy zones of a subject's feet and hands by a practitioner, to pinpoint and treat health problems. If the flow in a zone is blocked or out of balance, it could affect the part of the body that particular reflex area relates to. Using this pocket guide, learn to identify the longitudinal and transverse zones in the feet and hands, and how to apply pressure to specific points in order to alleviate physical symptoms, promote energy flow around the body, and encourage good health.

Category: New Age
Description: In this full-colour illustrated guide, Michael Gienger, along with contributors Hildegard Weiss and Ursula Dombrowksy, details the energetics and healing properties of more than 50 crystals and gemstones for use in massage. The book explains how to select the proper crystal or stone to aid healing of a specific condition as well as for relaxation and stress release. It illustrates specific massage techniques with crystal wands, crystal spheres, and polished stones that best utilize the crystal or stone's properties and shows how to perform a full-body massage that works on several levels--physical, ethereal, mental, and spiritual--depending on how the crystals are applied. Explaining how crystals absorb energy and information during a massage, the guide shows how to cleanse and recharge their energetic fields so energies are not transferred from one person to another. It also details how to rebalance and replenish your own energy after giving a massage. The book also includes a detailed chapter on the harmonizing effects of amber massage, complete with a step-by-step illustrated massage sequence. Amber's unique electromagnetic vibrations make it especially conducive to creating homeostasis in the body and thus a beneficial addition to any crystal or stone massage practice.

Healing Massage


Category: New Age
Description: 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.
