Osteopathy for Children Book Review:

See What Osteopathy Can Do For Your Child's Health—And Their Future! The perfect primer for parents looking for holistic, non-pharmaceutical, and nonsurgical alternatives, Osteopathy for Children ensures that parents fully understand and appreciate their options in finding the perfect program of care for their children. Osteopathy is a form of drug-free, non-invasive manual medicine that focuses on total body health by treating and strengthening the musculoskeletal framework. Osteopaths work to reduce and remove the unseen forces of injury, balancing tissue to effect instantaneous changes in body tensions. Traditional osteopathic physicians recognize that injuries suffered in early childhood often don’t present their full effects until much later, often leading to pain, fatigue, and a host of other medical complications. In fact, the final mature adult skeletal structure of an individual is strongly affected by the influence of injury and trauma in early life. Many of the persistent health problems that people face in their adult lives can be traced back to these long-forgotten traumas, particularly as conventional medicine continues to focus only on immediate, visible symptoms when diagnosing illness. With results approaching the miraculous, in terms of their immediacy and their efficacy, Osteopathy for Children brings an understanding of this holistic treatment style to the world, combining a pure understanding of osteopathy with years of expert experience in pediatrics. Through Osteopathy for Children, you will: • Explore the safe, world-recognized medical approach of osteopathy and make educated decisions for your child’s care • Find answers not provided anywhere else—including how and why old traumatic injuries influence our bodies for years to come • Learn from specific case studies of common problems, including before and after treatment photos • Understand how to detect physical clues in your child, identifying possible sources of trauma • Learn when, how, where and why to seek osteopathic care

Mechanical Link Book Review:

Developed in the late ’70s by French osteopath Paul Chauffour, Mechanical Link is a gentle manual therapy that encourages the balance of tensions in the fascial system—that complex web of tissue that interconnects and affects all other body systems. It spreads throughout the body uninterrupted, providing physical stability while also allowing flexibility and mobility. Based on the principle that traumatic stress affects the interconnecting tissues of the body by forming patterns of tension called lesions, Mechanical Link therapy has successfully treated fibromyalgia, migraines, asthma, and other conditions. Extremely popular in Europe, it is rapidly gaining adherents in North America. This book, complete with 44 black-and-white photographs and 20 color illustrations, is a comprehensive manual for diagnosing and treating patients. Mechanical Link therapy is guided by the body’s own wisdom about its unique needs. The work stimulates to the body’s self-corrective responses, promoting normal mobility, tissue tone and posture. Mechanical Link brings tension into equilibrium and allows the body to return to optimal functioning ability, so all its systems can improve—including the immune system. Mechanical Link helps alleviate a range of illness, pain and dysfunction, including: •Fibromyalgia •Indigestion •Migraine Headaches •Premenstrual Syndrome •Asthma •Chronic Fatigue •Motor-Coordination •Impairments •Chronic Neck and Back Pain •Central Nervous System •Disorders •Emotional Difficulties •Temporomandibular Joint Syndrome (TMJ) •Stress and Tension-Related Problems •Orthopedic Problems

Shock Book Review:

This book is intended to be an inspiration for therapists to recognize, classify and successfully treat the phenomenon of Shock. A comprehensible language also offers the layman a unique opportunity to better understand Shock from a unique perspective. "Shock is the effect of an event beyond the breaking point of individual stress resilience, whether psychological, emotional or mechanical. This Shock-effect manifests itself as Shock Energy, which is a form of fixed energy manifested in the fluidity of the tissue." Shock energy has specific properties such as a braking, even a blocking, effect on vitality, potential for change and liveliness itself. Shock is crystallized Shock energy, frozen in space-time, mostly carrier of tissue memories of the experienced event. This leads to time-resistant and often therapy-resistant phenomena in the affected body. Shock energy is a manifestation on the fluid level, and must therefore also be addressed on this level - every manual therapist should learn to use this 'language'. This is not magic, just another language to build a dialogue with the biography of the affected person at the tissue level. In this book, the subject of Shock is dissected from Edward Muntinga DO's very personal 'experience-based' perspective. What is Shock? How do you recognize Shock? How do you treat Shock? What are the qualities and chronicities of tissue memories carried by Shock energy? A substantial part of the book is a kind of 'Shock library' in which the reader can draw on the author's wealth of experience.
