Acupressure Taping : The Practice of Acutaping for Chronic Pain and Injuries

- +

Hecker (naturopathy and acupuncture, U. of Schleswig-Holstein, Germany) and Liebchen (chirotherapy, Dr. Karl Sell Medical Seminar, Germany) offer a guide to a relatively new alternative therapy they have developed. The method combines the concepts of kinesio-taping with the diagnostic and therapeutic principles found in Chinese medicine, acupuncture and acupressure. The text includes a background discussion of the method followed by step-by-step instructions, accompanied by full-color photographs, for treating specific ailments and areas of the body. The text is not a replacement for a doctor's care, but rather a tool that physicians, massage therapists, physical therapists, chiropractors, and alternative medicine professionals can use to actively involve the patient in the therapy. Translated from the 2005 German edition by Katja Lueers and Rafael Lorenzo. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
