The Reflexology Atlas (New)
by Kolster, Bernard
Publisher: Inner Traditions / Bear & Company
Book ID: 9781594770913, 1594770913
Of all the ancient practices that have been revived by the growth of alternative healing, reflexology is one of the most popular and is especially well-suited to self-treatment, the treatment of a partner, or the treatment of children. The Reflexology Atlas is a fully illustrated and comprehensive reference guide, the first to provide an overview of, and instructions for, each the many forms of reflexology--foot reflexology, hand reflexology, ear reflexology, head reflexology, and the total massage known as shiatsu.
In the reflexology system it is possible to stimulate a distant organ or body part by massaging a corresponding "reflex zone" on the hand, foot, ear, face, or scalp. By examining the location of the reflex zones, one can visualize a projection of the entire human body superimposed over each of these massage locations. On the foot, for example, the big toe represents the head; the area at the base of the toes corresponds to the neck and shoulder girdle; the digestive organs can be massaged in the middle of the foot; the curves of ball, arch, and heel on the side of the foot mirror the curves of the spine; and the pelvic organs find correspondence just below the anklebone. Because the placement of the reflex zones makes intuitive sense, reflexology is easy to learn and can be applied anywhere.
Reflexology provides a quick and effective treatment for many of the health disorders experienced by people in today's world. In an alphabetized symptom-by-symptom section, Drs. Kolster and Waskowiak offer reflexology techniques tailored to a wide variety of common health disorders, including allergies, joint problems, headaches, back pain, sleep disorders, and heart and circulatory problems. The Reflexology Atlas contains step-by-step instructions, illustrated in full color, that put the healing techniques of reflexology massage at your fingertips.

The Afflicted Mirror: A Study of Ordeals and the Making of Compacts
Three Hands Press
Measuring the connectivity between the visible and invisible, by using physicality as a signifier, brings another aspect to the fore. There appears to be good reason to believe there is a ratio in physical difference when it comes to observing how the metaphysical manifests partial presences. Exponential distortions correspond to how we retain a level of contact with the Other. When these abnormalities become exaggerated they prompt greater emotive responses, such as fear. By expressing an Ot...
The Holy Trinity and the Law of Three: Discovering the Radical Truth at the Heart of Christianity
Just as she's done in her previous books, Cynthia Bourgeault asks us to take a look at an idea from traditional Christianity--this time the formula of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit--as though we're looking at it for the first time. And as usual, she reveals it to be something we hadn't expected at all.
She finds in the idea of the Holy Trinity a striking vision of the nature of reality. What she claims, in a nutshell, is that embedded within this theological formula that Christians recite mo...
