The Guide to Modern Cupping Therapy: Your Step-by-Step Source for Vacuum Therapy
An ancient alternative technique that has found its right place in the modern world of healing.In recent years countless high profile athletes and celebrities have been sporting distinctive circular "cupping" welts on their bodies -- the back and shoulder area being most common. Dating back thousands of years, cupping is a form of alternative medicine. The cups create suction and help with pain, inflammation, blood flow, deep relaxation and can even provide relief for sciatica and sinus congestion.Massage Cupping body therapy is a modern and modified version of cupping therapy that creates suction and negative pressure through the use of both stationary and moving cups. These cups are available at pharmacies and do not use heat like old-fashioned glass cupping -- making them entirely safe and easy for home use.Shannon Gilmartin is a licensed and nationally certified massage therapist and certified vacutherapies educator who teaches this wonderfully diverse therapy and has witnessed the positive outcomes for patients. This book shares all her extraordinary professional and hands-on experience, so that everyone can experience the positive benefits of cupping. Nearly 200 step-by-step photos and full color pages make it easy to follow this expert instruction.

Just the Essentials: How Essential Oils Can Heal Your Skin, Improve Your Health, and Detox Your Life
The author of Skin Cleanse returns with a comprehensive guide to the ultimate ingredient for living an all-natural, plant-based lifestyle: essential oils.For millennia, essential oils have played a key role in health and beauty rituals. From references in the Bible (frankincense and myrrh) to Hippocrates (who documented the effects of oils from over 300 plants) to Ancient Egypt (Cleopatra pioneered the use of fragrance), essential oils have been revered throughout human history for their healing powers and their unparalleled scent.But in modern times, they’ve often been misunderstood, underappreciated, even cast as "dangerous" - and relegated to the dusty shelves of health food stores. That is, until recently. Today they’re back in the spotlight as increasing numbers of consumers are looking for all-natural alternatives to skincare products and opting for fragrance-free detergents and soaps, natural remedies for common ailments, and toxin-free home cleaning solutions.Enter Adina Grigore, owner and founder of the wildly popular all-natural skincare line SW Basics. A former essential oil skeptic, Grigore learned everything she could about these potent plant-based compounds when she began formulating her products. And what she learned was that essential oils are some of the most powerful, healing, health-promoting compounds found in nature. That, and they smell pretty great too.In Just the Essentials, Grigore offers a 21st-century guide to these ancient oils, offering a fresh, fun, and authoritative overview of what they are and how they can be easily incorporated into anyone’s life. From plant-based medicine to all-natural skincare to safer and cleaner household products to aromatherapy, this handy and entertaining guide provides detailed advice for a wide array of oils, safety guidelines, and a range of do-it-yourself recipes to get started.

The Good Vices: From Beer to Sex, the Surprising Truth About What's Actually Good for You
Being healthy is easier, less expensive, and a whole lot more enjoyable than you think.Much of the health advice we receive today tells us that in order to be healthy, we must consume a Spartan diet, exercise with the intensity of an Olympic athlete, and take a drug for every ailment. We constantly worry about the foods we should or shouldn't be eating and the medical tests we have neglected to take. And all that worry costs us dearly--financially, emotionally, and physically.In The Good Vices, prominent naturopathic physician Dr. Harry Ofgang and health journalist Erik Ofgang tear down decades of myth and prejudice to reveal how some of our guilty pleasures are not only okay but actually good for our health. For example:• Like wine, moderate beer and spirit consumption raises our bodies' level of good cholesterol, which protects against heart disease.• Egg yolks are an excellent source of important fat-soluble vitamins.• Research suggests that moderate exercisers can be at least as healthy as, and sometimes even healthier than, those who exercise intensively.Forget what you thought you knew about what's healthy, and enjoy some good vices instead.
