In this groundbreaking book, Dr Seem shares with us the fruits of 20 years of treating patients with all types of chronic fatigue, pain, and stress disorders. These are patients for whom standard medical treatments have offered little help and who often find their way to acupuncturists as a last resort. Included are Dr Seem's classification of the four major patterns of tight tender points that he finds in such patients, his treatment strategies in each pattern, and many charts and diagrams to help busy practitioners use his approach more effectively. This book is a must for acupuncturists treating any type of chronic condition.
NATUROPATHIC PHYSICAL MEDICINE provides a philosophical naturopathic perspective, as well as practical clinical applications, for manual and physical approaches to health care. A wide range of bodywork and movement approaches and modalities are evaluated in relation to their ability to be appropriately used in naturopathic treatment and rehabilitation settings. The model of care emphasised in this text recognizes that naturopathically oriented therapeutic interventions usually focus on achieving one or all of the following: enhancement of function so that the person, system or part, can better self-regulate in response to adaptive demands; modification or removal of adaptive load factors; and symptomatic relief without creation of significant additional adaptive changes.
