Acupressure Taping cover

Sufferers of chronic pain well know the frustration of treatments involving endless rounds of drugs or expensive physical therapy--that may or may not offer relief. In Acupressure Taping, authors Hecker and Liebchen present a comprehensive guide to a new method of pain treatment--acutaping--which offers a much simpler and more effective alternative. In acutaping, elastic tape is placed over the afflicted area in accordance with related acupuncture points. During the course of normal movement throughout the day, the elastic tape provides a gentle but consistent massage to the inflamed area. Because the skin adheres to the tape, it is shifted against the subtissue during motion, causing lymph tissue to drain and connective tissue to be massaged. The authors show that most bodily dysfunctions can be self-treated through this innovative method. Combining elements of Chinese medicine with osteopathy, acutaping produces a method of treatment for ailments ranging from back pain and tennis elbow to menstrual pain and migraines. Acutaping is an easy and effective treatment--without side effects--that offers welcome relief to sufferers of chronic pain.

"With straightforward diagnostic lists, easy instructions with tips, great color photographs, and an appendix of ailments, this guidebook will appeal to those interested in trying this conservative-care approach to pain management at home. It is also appropriate for healthcare professionals working with musculoskeletal problems. Recommended for acupuncture, massage, naturopathic, chiropractic, and osteopathic school libraries as well as for most public libraries." * Janet Tapper, Library Journal, April 2007 *
"Here's a guide to a new method of pain treatment, acutaping, which offers an easier alternative . . . Any bodywork health library needs this." * The Midwest Book Review, April 08 *
