Diastasis Recti, Born To Walk, A Practical Guide to Acupoints 3 Books Collection Set

Description

Diastasis Recti

Diastasis recti, the separation of the abdominal muscles, is a symptom of a whole-body problem. 

Your abdominal muscles bend, twist, and support the spine. They contract and release to help you breathe, cough, talk, and sing. They stretch to accommodate pregnancy, haul your lower body towards your upper, and protect your abdominal organs. They should not be splitting down the middle.

In this book, biomechanist Katy Bowman explains the larger picture when it comes to DR including:

  • Body alignment;
  • Frequency of movement;
  • The effects of all-day forces, like intra-abdominal pressure;
  • And why a few exercises simply aren't enough for long-term success.
You need to learn a new way to move for an improved set of core muscles. Because the abdominals are connected directly and indirectly to every other part of the body, this book lays out a whole-body corrective program to address the factors that overloaded the core in the first place.

With over 30 exercises and habit modifications, this book is for any man or woman experiencing abdominal separation or weakness and wanting to improve both the appearance and the function of their abdomen.

Born To Walk

Born to Walk presents the therapist with a powerful tool to assess and analyse movement. It breaks down walking into the 'essential events' that are required at each joint, then analyses how this series of events is integrated through the transfer of force along the Anatomy Train lines to create efficient human locomotion. Author James Earls combines the insights of evolutionary anatomy with the Anatomy Trains(R) model and the latest research on the many roles of the fascial tissues to create an up-to-date and novel vision of how we walk. Understanding the sequence and interrelationship of the 'essential events' and the transfer of forces will not only give the therapist a powerful tool to recognise optimal and suboptimal movement, but will also provide a clear format for assessment and guidance in bringing clients towards graceful, integrated movement.

A Practical Guide to Acupoints

This exceptionally well-illustrated guide to the location and properties of acupuncture points has been fully revised and updated, and now includes all the channel points. 

An understanding of acupoints is vital not only for acupuncturists but also for bodyworkers.

This user-friendly manual contains current, comprehensive information that is equally useful for physiotherapists, orthopaedic, medical, and paramedical professionals. It also gives special emphasis on how shiatsu and tuina therapists can best utilise point knowledge in their practice. In keeping with convention, the authors give the precise anatomical location of each point and illustrate it with a dot, along with alternative locations where relevant.

However, the book goes further by delineating the larger area where the point can be activated by pressure, guasha, and other means.

In addition, it explains the optimum physical position for treatment via acupuncture, acupressure, and other strategies, as treatment positions can vary according to the method of point stimulation and desired result.

The book also documents the distribution of sensation resulting from point stimulation, and differentiates between pressure and needle application where appropriate: 

  • All channel points included
  • Beautiful auricular acupuncture chart
  • Detailed index with more than 10,000 entries which includes symptoms, conditions, and Chinese syndromes
  • New protocols and points selection appendices
  • Chinese medical and general index
  • Anatomy index which includes muscles, bones, blood vessels, and nerves
  • New techniques added

A Practical Guide to Acupoints presents a wealth of carefully researched information equally valuable for professionals, students, and conscientious practitioners, making this the most complete practical guide to acupoints ever produced.
