Integrative Therapies for Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, and Myofascial Pain: The Mind-Body Connection
Integrative Therapies for Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, and Myofascial Pain: The Mind-Body Connection
A guide to coping with fibromyalgia, myofascial pain, and chronic fatigue syndrome - Reveals how to deal with each disorder and how treatments can interact or aggravate if more than one disorder is present - Offers techniques to dispel the side effects created by these illnesses Fibromyalgia, chronic myofascial pain, and chronic fatigue syndrome are often seen as interchangeable conditions, a belief held even by many health care providers. Nothing could be further from the truth--however, they do often coexist. Knowing if more than one of these disorders is present is extremely important because the treatment for one of them can often exacerbate the problems caused by the others. Written by a registered nurse and a psychologist who has been treating these conditions since 1994, this book presents an integrative medical approach to these three disorders with a strong emphasis on utilizing and strengthening the mind-body connection to restore well-being. The authors provide a thorough guide to numerous treatment options--from diet, exercise, and herbs to mindfulness meditation, chi kung, and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). They also offer techniques to dispel the brain fog that these disorders often create and show how to overcome the resultant obstacles to effectively communicating with your doctor. The additional information included on the psychological issues that accompany these chronic pain disorders allows this integrative treatment guide to open the door not only to physical recovery but also emotional and mental well-being.

Relational-Cultural Therapy
Relational-Cultural Therapy
In Relational Cultural Therapy, Judith V. Jordan explores the history, theory, and practice of this relationship-centered, culturally oriented form of therapy. Mainstream western psychological theories generally depict human development as moving from dependence to independence. In contrast, relational cultural therapy is built on the premise that, throughout the lifespan, human beings grow through and toward connection, and that we need connections to flourish, even to stay alive. This theory views isolation as a major source of suffering for people, at both a personal and cultural level. The goal of therapy is to deepen the therapeutic relationship and, ultimately, the client's relationships outside of therapy. Therapy focuses on a client's relational images positive or negative expectations created by past relationships that in turn influence present and future relationships. Negative relational images often cause disconnection between people, so the relational cultural therapist seeks to decrease the effect of these negative images and help the client to become more connected with others. The theory behind this approach centers around positive interpersonal factors such as growth-fostering relationships and mutual empathy as well as cultural factors that facilitate validation and empowerment for marginalized populations. The approach seeks to reduce sources of individual isolation and social injustice, such as racism, classism, and homophobia, which contribute to chronic disconnection. In this book, Dr. Jordan presents and explores this approach, its theory, history, the therapy process, primary change mechanisms, empirical basis, and future developments. This essential primer to relational cultural therapy, amply illustrated with case examples, is perfect for graduate students studying theories of therapy and counseling as well as for seasoned practitioners interested in understanding this approach.

The Aura-Soma Sourcebook: Color Therapy for the Soul
The Aura-Soma Sourcebook: Color Therapy for the Soul
A complete guide to the practice of Aura-Soma color therapy - Includes illustrated descriptions of all 104 Aura-Soma Equilibrium bottles - Shows how colors reveal our connection to the living energies around us and our possibilities for growth in consciousness - Explores the 30 related fragrances that protect the aura and align the individual with specific energies Aura-Soma is an innovative approach to soul therapy that relies on bottles of dual-colored liquids, known as Equilibrium bottles, that incorporate plant extracts, essential oils, and the energies and extracts of precious and semiprecious stones. The energetic properties found in the liquids interact with the individual's aura to help support balance in the body, mind, and spirit. In The Aura-Soma Sourcebook authors Mike Booth and Carol McKnight detail the origins, holistic understanding, and consciousness-mirroring effects of each of the 104 equilibrium combinations. The practice of Aura-Soma is initially based on a person's selection of four Equilibrium bottles. The choice of bottles and the sequence in which they are chosen provide keys to understanding past difficulties and mirror the need and potential for growth in one's consciousness. The book includes full-color spreads that juxtapose the colors of the bottle with dramatic photographs that depict the energetic essence of each bottle and that evoke the healing energy of the natural environment. The authors also explain where to apply the essences, which chakra in the subtle anatomy will be affected, and what areas of personal growth can be addressed.
