Acupressure's Potent Points: A Guide to Self-Care for Common Ailments
Michael Reed Gach
0553349708
January 1990
Paperback
·
 
From Library Journal
The technique of using acupressure to relieve pain has been around for 5000 years and even predates acupuncture. It is possible to learn to perform acupressure on oneself by following the well-illustrated instructions and diagrams in this book. Two clearly written chapters give the history, theory behind the technique, and some general instructions, followed by 40 chapters which cover specific disorders--acne, insomnia, shoulder tension, etc.--and how acupressure can help relieve them. There is also a glossary. Libraries that don't have other works on this subject will want this one; those that do will still want to consider this as a worthy additional purchase.- Natalie Kupferberg, Brooklyn Coll.

Robert T. Sharp

Paperback

From Publishers Weekly
What happens when a young vet from a small-animal practice in the big city (in this case, Chillicothe, Ohio) buys a smalltown, mixed-animal veterinary practice from its retiring owner? He quickly finds himself treating ornery bulls and drunken pigs, delivering calves by C-section, stitching up horses and shaving cats who've had buckets of paint spilled on them. He also learns that the "three requirements to practice in the country ... are to be able to drive a truck like a maniac, rope cattle in the dark, and drive a truck like a maniac." In this collection of a few dozen colloquial anecdotes about veterinary life, Sharp brings wit and warmth to his portrayals of the animals and people of Hillsboro, Ohio. He tells of the eccentric old woman who cared for the stray dogs that no one else wanted, the goat who...


Healing Home Spa: Soothe Your Symptoms, Ease Your Pain, and Age-Proof Your Body with Pleasure Remedies
Valerie Gennari Cooksley

Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Whatever ails you, there's probably a natural remedy for it in this volume. Cooksley (Aromatherapy: A Lifetime Guide to Healing with Essential Oils), offers this A-to-Z reference with treatments that rely heavily on aromatherapy, as well as on other therapies, including breath work, diet, herbs, hydrotherapy, massage, salves, teas and yoga. The book's tone is friendly and conversational, not medical, and Cooksley reminds readers her suggested treatments shouldn't be used as replacements for current allopathic treatments or in lieu of seeking qualified professional help. Cooksley's "pleasure remedies" supposedly treat everything from acne, arthritis and asthma to varicose veins and warts. Many treatment recipes require a stockpile of essential oils, vinegars and herbs that few lay readers are likely to have on...
