Welcome to a new Acupressure

As we look towards the year 2014 another opportunity arises to immerse yourself in the depth and poetry of 5-Element Acupressure. This is an ancient system of bodywork that truly works with the whole person — body, mind, and spirit. In the West, we have begun to explore the concept of mind-body, and for the most part we have kept the treatment of the physical body and the mental/emotional body separate, with some concepts around “emotional release” that mostly relate to scope of practice in a bodywork practice.

Robert Fulford and the Philosopher Physician

Normally blogs are about recent events or happenings or thoughts on a particular subject – this one is a little different because it reprints comments from  the Publisher’s website – Eastland Press.

This book is worth a mention as it is a book written for osteopaths or Craniosacral therapists or indeed any therapist for that matter who wish to look at a model of Therapist who has expanded their boundaries of treatment on offer through training and personal growth. One of the questions a practicing Craniosacral Therapist may ask is why would I wish to explore other modalities that integrate with the work that I do. This book details how one man has done this and some of the reasons why.


New Fascial Research shows what practitioners were feeling

They say seeing is believing! There is renewed interest in the bodywork community with Myofascial Release Therapy with the release of graphic pictures showing the interaction of the Fascia with the connective tissue of the body. A new DVD clearly demonstrates what John Barnes PT has been alluding to for many years that the fascia is a conduit for not only nerves and meridians but also has an effect on fluids within the body. The DVD was created by Dr Jean Guimberteau.


Strolling under the skin by Dr Jean Guimberteau

This 25-minute DVD contains some of the most fascinating images of living fascia ever developed. Dr. Jean Claude Guimberteau is a plastic and hand surgeon who has been researching the body’s ‘sliding system’ that allows fascial planes to move on each other. The beauty and excitement of this film is that is living fascia in a living person, and so beautifully filmed that no one — lay or practitioner — can see this video unmoved.
