Download PAIN RELIEF WITH OSTEOMASSAGE by Ronald Melvin Lawrence PDF

By Ronald Melvin Lawrence

Простое, но эффективное руководство по снятию болей при многих распространненых недомоганиях и болезнях.

ОСТЕОМАССАЖ - это техника обезболивания. Безмедикаментозный анальгетик, где роль таблеток выполняют ваши собственные пальцы. Данная книга была написана по материалам работы авторов с периостиумом - наружным слоем костной ткани, к которому крепятся мышцы и связки. ОСТЕОМАССАЖ был специально разработан авторами для стимуляции периостеума при лечении болевых синдромов. Данные техники давно и успешно используются массажистами, специалистами по мануальной терапии, практикующими ортопедами и терапевтами в Америке и Европе. Не уверен, что данная методика применяется в государствах бывшего СССР, просто не имею никакой статистики, которая бы могла это подтвердить. Во всяком случае, русскоязычной литературы по ОСТЕОМАССАЖУ я не нашел, если у кого-то есть инфа, поделитесь.

Главное, пожалуй, отличие от широко известных методик надавливания, типа шиатсу или су-джок, состоит в том, что физическое воздействие направлено не на мягкие ткани, а на костные. Соответственно, для применения методики ОСТЕОМАССАЖА хватает базовых знаний анатомии и нет необходимости штудировать движение энергий по меридианам, чакрам и даньтяням, что делает жизнь лучше и веселей. Все просто, но все работает, проверено. Несмотря на скромный объем в книжке достаточно техник, чтобы при известном опыте и сноровке освоить их самостоятельно (хотя авторы и настаивают на присутствии опытных Айболитов при давлении чужого тела, но они же в Америке, там чуть не туда надавил - миллионый иск). Будьте проще и к вам потянутся люди, хотя бы и болезные, но лучше, чем никого)))
