Constitutional Facial Acupuncture Book Review:

We are re-defining the face of ageing on a daily basis, with the Baby Boom generation in the vanguard, followed by younger generations who are similarly intrigued by non-invasive natural solutions that are integrative rather than purely cosmetic. Constitutional Facial Acupuncture has begun to make an impact on popular culture and outmoded perceptions about the nature of authentic beauty and the ageing process. Acupuncturists who practice in this field are increasingly expected to have specialized training and knowledge, outside the customary parameters of the more traditional approaches. This book introduces a complete Constitutional Facial Acupuncture protocol that is comprehensive, effective and clearly organized, with illustrative color photographs and facial needling diagrams. Its strong constitutional components are unique, adhere to the principles of Chinese medicine, and are rooted in the three levels of treatment - Jing, Ying and Wei. A new and detailed Constitutional Facial Acupuncture protocol highlights acu-muscle points, Shen imbalances, lines and wrinkles, needling technique, relevant points and their locations. A comprehensive constitutional treatment approach A customized, modular topical herbal protocol that is enriched with the use of essential oils and natural cleansers, creams, etc. Practical step-by-step instructions on how to integrate the needling protocols with the topical herbs, jade rollers, gem eye discs, etc. A complete Constitutional Facial Acupuncture needling protocol for 12 problematic areas of the facial landscape, i.e., droopy eyelids, sagging neck, crow's feet, sunken cheeks, etc. Contraindications, benefits, and personal advice drawn from the author's 30+ years of experience An essential text for students or practitioners of facial acupuncture, and also for those readers who are interested in the field of "healthy aging"

Facial Enhancement Acupuncture Book Review:

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.

Archetypal Acupuncture Book Review:

The Chinese model of the Five Elements (wood, fire, metal, earth, and water) and the Twelve Officials (the organ systems that comprise the map of traditional Chinese medicine) has been applied as a system of medicine for three thousand years to balance chi, the vital force of the body. Archetypal Acupuncture explains to both acupuncturists and the general public how to work with these maps of energy and use them to diagnose physical illness, resolve emotional imbalances, and navigate the stages of life. Dr. Dolowich’s goal is to revitalize these traditional teachings for the modern world—and in the process bring East and West together. Through an archetypal approach to Chinese medicine, he shows how we can gain fresh insights into the roots of illness while uncovering a positive vision of wellness and the healing process. The book draws on case histories, spiritual poetry (especially Rilke and Rumi), classic sources such as the I Ching, and examples from contemporary culture in order to bring the elements alive. Individual chapters explore the interface of Eastern and Western medicine, Chinese numerology, spiritual aspects of the elements, archetypal patterns in popular culture, and strategies for cultivating a life in harmony with the rhythms of nature.

Bell s Palsy Handbook Book Review:

Bell's Palsy, which is the most common form of facial nerve palsy, can be a very terrifying condition for a person to have because any form of facial paralysis creates a life of traumatic experiences. It is very difficult for somebody who doesn't suffer with facial nerve palsy to understand how it affects your looks and everyday self-esteem and self-confidence. The majority of Bell's Palsy sufferers just want to lock themselves indoors because they feel totally uncomfortable when people see the side of their face all droopy and distorted. Bell's Palsy symptoms are easily recognisable by the muscles on one or both sides of your face being paralyzed. Bell's Palsy causes your speech to be slurred, it will also prevent you from smiling and in some instances can prevent you from eating. Your eyelids droop and as such you find it very difficult to blink your eyes. This explanation paints a very hideous picture for the onlooker but just imagine how the sufferer feels. It has a devastating effect on the person's self-esteem and self-confidence and unfortunately because of their condition there is no hiding place for someone suffering with facial nerve palsy. The author of this book has been a genuine sufferer of Bell's Palsy since birth and has suffered the constant stigma of all the childhood taunts and comments, inquisitive looks and stares that someone with facial nerve paralysis encounters every single day. He has written this book to let fellow facial palsy sufferers realize that there is hope for those who are searching for a cure to this disturbing affliction. His goal was to ensure that everything a Bell's Palsy sufferer needs could be found within the pages of his book. Certain viruses are thought to be the cause of Bell's Palsy but that is just one of numerous theories into what causes facial paralysis. But, there is no definitive answer as to what the real cause is. Your doctor will usually prescribe an anti-inflammatory medicine. Whereas this book goes a lot further in describing the non-surgical treatments available, such as cognitive behavior therapy (CBT), antiviral drugs, acupuncture, facial rehabilitation, B-vitamins therapy, speech therapy, and natural alternative treatments (i.e. methyl-sulphonyl-methane (MSM), histamine, adenosine triphosphate (ATP) and acetyl-l-carnitine) and much more..... The comprehensive research the author has undertaken caters for everything related to what causes Bell's Palsy. You can find specific information into how the condition affects children, pregnant women, whether to undergo surgical procedures to alleviate your condition, how you can help your own recovery, and not just on a temporary basis. If you are trying to find the best Bell's Palsy treatment resource then look no further than this publication because the comprehensive information provided in this book will help you to safely overcome the problems of facial paralysis. The Bell's Palsy exercises section provides you with a series of face exercises that will help your facial paralysis treatment program. These face exercises show you how to deal with facial nervy palsy safely and in the comfort of your own home. This book is your one-stop guide to giving you all the information you need on Bell's Palsy. So what are you waiting for? Purchase this book today and give yourself the best possible chance of a full recovery.

Facial Diagnosis of Cell Salt Deficiencies Book Review:

The condition of facial skin is a primary indicator of overall bodily health. Deficiencies in diet and metabolism, together with disease conditions, are easily observed in the face, if one knows what to look for. This book is about how to “read the face” to determine which essential cell salts (also known as tissue salts) are lacking in the body. When a diagnosis is determined, the patient can then remedy that condition by supplementing with the proper cell-salt. Cell salts (tissue salts) exist in every human body. These are the inorganic biochemical elements found in the blood and tissues. They are the builders and the catalysts for many essential processes. For example, most people may have heard of potassium chloride, but few realize that it is a tissue salt (cell salt) essential to the digestive process. This salt unites with hydrogen to form HCL (hydrochloric acid), aids in the production of bile, serves as an alkalizer, and helps in digestive enzyme formation. Therefore, it is a dynamic component of health. Twelve cell salts were identified in the 1850s by European scientists, and this knowledge was soon added to the materia medica of physicians and practitioners throughout Europe. Today, homeopathic practitioners and naturopathic doctors in the United States and other countries are beginning to revive the use of cell salt supplementation in successfully treating a spectrum of disease conditions. This book instructs the practitioner, or the patient, in: How to Read the Face: This book, complete with illustrations, guides the practitioner in what to look for in the face. Such cues as skin color, condition of eyebrows, size and color of lips, musculature of the face, blemishes and inflammations, the circles around or under the eyes, and many other characteristics, betray the excesses and deficiencies at work in the body. How to Use Cell Salts: Detailed explanations are given to each of the twelve cell salts, which interestingly correspond to the twelve signs of the zodiac. Extensive lists are supplied of various disease or imbalance conditions that can be helped by cell salt supplementation.
