Il metodo terapeurico PRALD. Con DVD

Gavino Scanu

editore: Piccin-Nuova Libraria

pagine: 168

L'esecuzione del P.R.A.L.D. si divide in tre diversi momenti della metodologia manuale. 1. Stimolazione reflessogena connettivale (S.R.C.). 2. Stimolazione trigger Point miofasciale (S.TP.M.). 3. Stimolazione veno-linfatica e drenaggio menuale (S.VL.D.M.). La finalità di tale metodologia è di stimolare diverse strutture del nostro organismo secondo una consequenzialità logica e funzionale, seguendo un criterio globale e non settoriale. Infatti, anche in questo caso, è doveroso non perdere di vista come nel nostro organismo nessun sistema opera in modo isolato e nessun apparato lavora indipendentemente dall'altro. L'organismo è, quindi, un sistema aperto nel quale ogni singolo distretto comunica e collabora con gli altri per garantire quell'equilibrio dinamico, metabolico e psico-fisico, che ci permette d'essere vivi, efficienti ed in buona salute.

Massaggio curativo e cure integrate

Lorenzo P. Capello

editore: Tecniche Nuove

pagine: 288

Il metodo MAS.CUR.INT. (Massaggio Curativo e Cure Integrate) è una disciplina caratterizzata da un impianto teorico autonomo, basato sulle conoscenze accademiche dell'anatomia, della fisiologia, della PNEI e sulle attuali acquisizioni della medicina energetica. Si inserisce nello scenario della Medicina Integrata sviluppando l'ipotesi di una disciplina unificante e trasversale: l'Olismologia. Il metodo presenta tecniche manuali (massaggio curativo fisico, posturale, emozionale e somatopsichico) e tecniche integrative (kinesiologia diagnostico-terapeutica, energetica, metabolica, organica, funzionale, alimentare ed emozionale). Il testo presenta nei primi capitoli queste tecniche di massaggio, sempre con l'ausilio di fotografie descrittive. La sezione dedicata al recupero delle funzioni organiche illustra il test muscolare kinesiologico, strumento formidabile per la valutazione delle problematiche psicofisiche, e tutte le tecniche necessarie. Infine, illustra sul piano mentale le localizzazioni corporee simboliche di vari disturbi di origine psico-somatica e insegna ad affrontarle attraverso diversi approcci finora inesplorati ma rivelatisi di grande efficacia.

Speriamo che questo nuovo libro possa aiutare tutti coloro che si apprestano ad apprendere la metodica della Manipolazione Fasciale® per ottenere risultati soddisfacenti, ma anche per comprendere meglio le basi anatomiche della fascia superficiale, profonda ed epimisiale, perché solo "Manus sapiens potens est" (Gli autori).
