Σεμινάρια Ωτοβελονισμού

Αυτό το βιβλίο γεννήθηκε από την 20ετή κλινική και

διδακτική εμπειρία του γιατρού Giancarlo Bazzoni, δασκάλου και φίλου. Ο συγγραφέας είναι, σύμφωνα με τη γνώμη όλων, αναγνωρισμένος στην Ιταλία και στο εξωτερικό ως ένας από τους μεγαλύτερους εμπειρογνώμονες της Ωτοθεραπείας, μια ιατρική πρακτική που χρησιμοποιεί το πτερύγιο του αυτιού για διαγνωστικούς και θεραπευτικούς σκοπούς.

Είναι ένας εύκαμπτος αλλά αυστηρός τόμος από επιστημονική άποψη, γρήγορης αναφοράς για όποιον ήδη γνωρίζει την Ωτοθεραπεία. Είναι μια ευκαιρία για όποιον δεν είναι πρακτικός με το αντικείμενο, να πλησιάσει αυτή την θαυμάσια επιστήμη που με υπομονή, ευγένεια, ευθυμία και πολύ επαγγελματισμό ο καθηγητής Bazzoni δίδαξε όλους τους μαθητές του, συμπεριλαμβανομένης και εμού της ιδίας. Είμαι σίγουρη ότι οι στόχοι αυτού του τόμου ήταν να ενημερώσουν και να ιντριγκάρουν. Μπορώ να πω ότι ο συγγραφέας αυτό κατάφερε να το επιτύχει πλήρως.

Auriculotherapy is based on proven correspondences between locations on the external ear and the internal organs and systems of the body. The ear acts like an input/output terminal in direct contact with the central nervous system. Information on viscerosomatic states can be accessed via visual clues, skin electro-conductivity, and pressure sensitivity at specific points.

The first part of Raphael Nogier’s Auriculotherapy shows how acupuncture needles are used in sophisticated and powerful therapeutic interventions.

The second part introduces the principles and practice of auriculomedicine, a true frequency medicine that evolved from Dr. Paul Nogier’s auriculotherapy, his discovery of the VAS (Vascular Autonomic Signal) in the pulse and his consequent observations of the diagnostic and therapeutic properties of radiant light frequencies on the skin.

Σεμινάριο Κοιλιακού Βελονισμού

Gemma D’ Angelo has practised abdominal acupuncture for many years. This therapeutic method is very interesting for various reasons. First of all, for its effectiveness in particular in treating joint disorders of the spine and limbs but also in treating neurological conditions associated with spinal nerve root compression that cause sciatica and radiculopathy. Secondly, abdominal acupuncture is “repeatable” and thus its therapeutic efficacy can be tested on the basis of randomized controlled trials. Another great quality is that it is practically pain-free thus it can be useful as a first therapeutic approach even with the most faint-hearted patient. Umbilical acupuncture, the second micro-system described by the author, is based on the complex relation between man and nature. This method is based on the ba gua, the diagram depicting the transformation of yin yang based on the eight trigrams. Similar to abdominal acupuncture, this method of treatment was developed recently and has the virtue of being nearly painless. In this volume, Gemma D’ Angelo introduces the reader to the theory and practise of both methods describing her clinical experiences. She presents the treatment protocols and their different therapeutic effects in two sections; one that lists protocol treatments applicable to more than one condition and a second where the disorders are listed according to their clinical specialisation.

The basic for the Medical Taping Concept was laid in Korea and Japan in the seventies. At the time methods of taping were being developed starting from the idea that movement and muscle activity are essential in maintaining and recovering health. The idea behind this was that muscles are not only attributed to the movements of the body but also control for instance blood and lymph circulation and body temperature. If the muscles do not function properly, it can cause a range of symptoms and compaints

Over the past few years, it has become evident that the Medical Taping Concept is a valuable enrichment of existing therapy possibilities. In Europe in particular, CureTape has become increasingly acceptance among health-care providers. This innovative method has its roots in Japan and was only introduced into Europe in the late nineties.

The CureTape has an effect on the body’s neurological and the circulatory systems including muscles, tendons, joints and organs. It stimulates the body’s self-healing process, thereby facilitating the regeneration of so called “blocked” symptoms and re-establishing normal unlimited function.

This book was written for physiotherapists, doctors, orthopaedists, sports coaches and masseurs, but also for non-medical practitioners. Due to the use of many medical terms, knowledge of anatomy and medical terminology are basic requirements for understanding the material presented in the book. The author’s aim is to provide material in such a clear and concise manner that this book can be used as a textbook and as a reference book.

It includes a DVD with the basic techniques and how the tape is to be used

Πριν από 3000 και πλέον χρόνια, πρωτοπόροι Κινέζοι άνοιξαν με τον βελονισμό, κυριολεκτικά και μεταφορικά, μονοπάτια θεραπείας, που εξακολουθούν να ανακουφίζουν εκατομμύρια ανθρώπων σε όλο τον πλανήτη. Ο βελονισμός ως αυτόνομη και συμπληρωματική θεραπεία, όπως εξελίχθηκε και με τη συνδρομή κορυφαίων επιστημόνων της δυτικής ιατρικής κοινότητας, είναι το αντικείμενο αυτού του βιβλίου.

Acupuncture has long been recognized as complementing the practice of physiotherapy. Acupuncture in Physiotherapy is written for physiotherapists who have already received a basic training in acupuncture and who wish to extend their practice and achieve an intermediate standard of knowledge. It links the philosophies of Traditional Chinese Medicine with the theory and practice of Western science in a single, clearly written and highly readable text.

Acupuncture in Physiotherapy addresses the important issues on appropriate acupuncture research methodologies, particularly that of placebo control and enables the reader to judge the quality of RCT evidence. It also examines more recent research into the mechanisms of acupuncture. Treatment vignettes are included throughout the text to demonstrate the immediate relevance of the sophisticated and subtle TCM thinking to modern physiotherapy  practice. Research papers and texts are cited where they support TCM theory.

Val Hopwood is an experienced practitioner and is well known for her acupuncture courses. Her ecumenical approach to the subject avoids an abstract separation of the two strands of acupuncture and in its juxtaposition of science and mythology, provides a stimulating and original survey. Full of insights, this book will be required reading not only for physiotherapists but any health professional who uses acupuncture in their practice.

Σεμινάρια Ινστιτούτου Fascial Manipulation - Stecco Method

La manipolazione fasciale è un valido metodo terapeutico la cui efficacia è dimostrata sia dall’esperienza clinica, documentata anche in questo testo, sia da numerose evidenze scientifiche pubblicate su Pubmed. Utilizzando una logica scientifica, secondo i criteri della medicina moderna, la spiegazione di tale efficacia clinica può risiedere sulla ricca innervazione della fascia muscolare che, adeguatamente stimolata, può raggiungere per via riflessa molteplici aree del sistema nervoso centrale; il che spiegherebbe l’azione positiva interna su organi e visceri. Tuttavia, i fondamenti della medicina cinese forniscono un’ulteriore affascinante spiegazione. Ho scritto “ulteriore” e non “alternativa”: da quando ho iniziato a praticare e insegnare la medicina cinese, ho sostenuto l’integrazione fra le due medicine nell’ambito di un’entusiasmante visione di sintesi. Questa visione è confermata dalla fisica moderna, in base alla quale l’energia e la materia, reciprocamente trasformabili, richiamano all’insorgenza di patologie che investono sia l’energia sia la materia: le prime sono comunemente definite malattie funzionali o, ancora peggio, “psicosomatiche”; le seconde malattie organiche, documentabili tanto anatomicamente quanto tramite l’ausilio delle attrezzature diagnostiche. Entrando nell’anticamera di un qualsiasi ambulatorio di medicina generale o specialistica è frequente constatare pazienti portatori di pile di esami tutti negativi; eppure non sono malati “immaginari” ma realmente sofferenti. Un esempio lampante è rappresentato dalla cefalea: vi sono pazienti che sopportano violente crisi dolorose a livello cefalico con frequenze settimanali, o addirittura quotidiane, con risonanze cerebrali del tutto negative.

La medicina cinese si basa sui seguenti fondamenti, concepiti in evoluzione:
• la teoria yin/yang, come logica fenomenica binaria;
• l’uomo fra cielo e terra, come logica cosmica ternaria;
• l’alternanza yin/yang, come logica ciclica quaternaria;
• lo sviluppo dei 5 Movimenti, come logica dinamica quinaria;
• la circolazione energetica, come logica senaria (6 livelli e 12 canali).

Quest’ultimo fondamento è il più idoneo a spiegare l’efficacia del massaggio fasciale, come pure di qualsiasi metodica che agisca sulla circolazione energetica: agopuntura, moxibustione, massaggio, coppettazione, elettro e magneto-stimolazione, laserterapia, ultrasuoni.

Fascial Manipulation for Internal Dysfunctions offers a new method to resolve the dysfunctions of internal organs. Therapists work on specific points of the trunk wall (container), to restore the peristalsis of the viscera, vessels and glands (contents). Internal organ motility is linked to the autonomic nervous system; this book examines the ganglia of this system in relation to the fasciae that contain them. Fascial Manipulation for Internal Dysfunctions presents a new perspective on internal dysfunctions and provides medical doctors, physiotherapists, chiropractors, osteopaths and other health practitioners with the guidelines for resolving them

In spite of my amateurish command of the Italian language, several years ago I recognized immediately that Luigi Stecco had produced an Italian masterpiece with the help of Piccin Nuova Libraria.
Reproduction in an English edition seemed a mandatory next step and I urged it to be done. Now my pleasure is redoubled as I read through the excellent translation that captures the true essence of my esteemed colleague’s ideas and recommendations.
Few books achieve the fond hopes of their authors and their admirers. This is just one that succeeds, making a genuine and profound contribution to the fields of biomechanics, orthopedics and rehabilitation. It moves with easy grace from any topic to its neighbor, shedding warmth and life to them all.
As one who has experienced both the high and low points of medical writing and editing over several decades, I see in these pages a true work of genius. It deserves a very wide readership and enthusiastic application of its lessons.

Welcome to an exciting new field in musculoskeletal therapy: the fascinating world of fascia. Fascia forms a continuous tensional network throughout the human body, covering and connecting every single organ, every muscle, and even every nerve or tiny muscle fiber. After several decades of severe neglect, this ubiquitous tissue has transformed from the “Cinderella of orthopaedic
science” into an almost super star position within medical research. Starting with the first few years of this 21st century, the number of research papers on fascia in peer-reviewed journals experienced an almost exponential increase. The 1st International Fascia Research Congress, held at the Harvard Medical School in October 2007, was celebrated with worldwide acknowledgement.
Similar to the rapidly growing field of glia research in neurology, there is now a global recognition that this underestimated contextual tissue plays a much more important role in health and pathology than was estimated during previous decades.

As every medical student knows and every doctor still remembers, up to now, fascia has been introduced in anatomy dissection courses as the white packing stuff that one first needs to clean off, in order “to see something”. Similarly, anatomy books have been competing with each other in just how clean and orderly they present the locomotor system, by cutting away the whitish
or semi-translucent fascia as completely and skilfully as possible. While students appreciate these appealing graphic simplifications, with shiny red muscles, each attaching to specific skeletal points, frustration is certain when these simplified maps have almost nothing to do with how the real body feels and behaves, be it in medical surgery or during therapeutic palpation.

The world of Fascia is infinite and marvelous, connecting organs and tissues and altering function and structure. The exploration and research from professors in various specialized fields not only connect the diversified ways of treatment but also provide medical recognition of the East and the West. New knowledge from recent research allows the West to better understand the East or, in other words, for the modern world to comprehend the ancient concepts more clearly.

I have read the Stecco family’s series of articles and books with appreciation, feeling honored to translate and introduce them to China. I am surprised to discover that the exploration and contribution of the Stecco family appears to support our Chinese predecessors’ concepts and technologies step-by-step, introducing further innovations and developments. The medical practitioners in ancient China built a Meridian and Collateral Model, which is highly effective in guiding the clinical practice of acupuncture. Nevertheless, due to the long-gone ages, the ancient language that was used could not be correctly understood by modern people, leading to divergent points of views.

The Stecco family, with their comprehension and passion for acupuncture, have built a biomechanical model, called Fascial Manipulation, that both refers to acupuncture and verifies its effectiveness from the viewpoint of anatomy and clinical practice, which is a tremendous contribution for both Chinese traditional medicine and Western medicine.

The authors present a novel model concerning the contribution of fascia to neuromuscular coordination through a specific topography of centers within the fascial network. While this is a completely new model, it is presented in a very convincing manner. The evidence given in this book in support for this intriguing model, covers not only corroborating phylogenetic and neurophysiological details, but includes thousands of hours of anatomical cadaver research, performed by the original founder of this approach, Luigi Stecco, as well as his daughter Carla Stecco MD and son Antonio Stecco MD. Their diligent cavader studies have resulted in several new anatomical discoveries and descriptions, published in peer-reviewed scientific anatomical journals. Anybody who has followed the emerging new publications on fascia in the scientific literature in the last few years will have noticed these important contributions. This family team has studied fascial morphology and topography in detail, which is not only impressive but also resulted in the novel descriptions and findings that support the new model for neurofascial coordination presented in this book…

Principally based on dissections of hundreds of un-embalmed human cadavers over the past decade, Functional Atlas of the Human Fascial System presents a new vision of the human fascial system using anatomical and histological photographs along with microscopic analysis and biomechanical evaluation.

Prof. Carla Stecco – orthopaedic surgeon and professor of anatomy and sport activities – brings together the research of a multi-specialist team of researchers and clinicians consisting of anatomists, biomechanical engineers, physiotherapists, osteopaths and plastic surgeons. In this Atlas Prof. Stecco presents for the first time a global view of fasciae and the actual connections that describe the myofascial kinetic chains. These descriptions help to explain how fascia plays a part in myofascial dysfunction and disease as well as how it may alter muscle function and disturb proprioceptive input. Prof. Stecco also highlights the continuity of the fascial planes, explaining the function of the fasciae and their connection between muscles, nerves and blood vessels. This understanding will help guide the practitioner in selecting the proper technique for a specific fascial problem with a view to enhancing manual therapy methods.

Functional Atlas of the Human Fascial System opens with the first chapter classifying connective tissue and explaining its composition in terms of percentages of fibres, cells and extracellular matrix. The second chapter goes on to describe the general characteristics of the superficial fascia from a macroscopic and microscopic point of view; while the third analyzes the deep fascia in the same manner. The subsequent five chapters describe the fasciae from a topographical perspective. In this part of the Atlas, common anatomical terminology is used throughout to refer to the various fasciae but it also stresses the continuity of fasciae between the different bodily regions.

Over 300 unique photographs which show fascia on fresh (not embalmed) cadavers

Demonstrates the composition, form and function of the fascial system

Highlights the role of the deep fascia for proprioception and peripheral motor coordination

Sometimes called coining, spooning or scraping, Gua Sha is defined as instrument-assisted undirectional press stroking of a lubricated area of the body surface that intentionally creates “transitory therapeutic petechiae” representing extravasation of blood in the subcutis.

Gua Sha has been used for centuries in Asia, in Asian immigrant communities and by acupuncturists and practitioners of traditional East Asian medicine worldwide. With the expansion of traditional East Asian medicine, Gua Sha has been used over broad geographic areas and by millions of people. It is valuable in the treatment of pain and for functional problems with impaired movement, the prevention, the prevention and treatment of acute infectious illness, upper respiratory and digestive problems and many acute or chronic disorders. Research has demonstrated Gua Sha radically increases surface microperfusion that stimulates immune and anti-inflammatory responses that persist for days after treatment.

The second edition expands on the history of Gua Sha and similar techniques used in early Western Medicine, detailing traditional theory, purpose and application and illuminated by science that focuses  its relevance to modern clilnical practice as well as scholarly inquiry. This book brings the technique alive for practitioners, with clear discussion of how to do it and when to use it, with over 50 case examples, and superb color photographs and line drawings that demonstrate the technique
