China Books Presents
PhotoLaser Therapy for Sports Injuries & Physical Rehabilitation

CHINA BOOKS is pleased to present the highly regarded Tina CZECH for a Sports Injury & Physical Rehabilitation Laser Workshop

Any physical trauma sets off an intricate cascade of physiological activities and adjustments and if the injury is severe, both local and systemic responses are initiated and all of the biological systems within the body can be involved. Reactive -depressive emotional states can also develop if the subject fails to regain full range of movement within the desired time frame, becoming more and more frustrated with lack of response to conventional medical treatment and physical therapies.

With advances in biomedical knowledge, the complexity of the biological systems that serve various functions, has become more and more evident and consequently our view of homeostasis has become more comprehensive, to a point where other possibilities or integrated approaches to assist in maintaining the equilibrium that sustains health and physical function, becomes the priority.
Scientific evaluation of photobiological and photochemical responses to light has demonstrated that oscillating laser light at specific frequencies can flow throughout an open biological system and create short lived fields of oscillation that can adjust or change spontaneously, to re-instate biological coherence in other parts of the living system.

This Master workshop examines important regulatory mechanisms of the locomotive system and the way in which laser light facilitates tissue healing and modulates proprioceptive and nociceptive information, to assist in restoring neuro-musculoskeletal function and physical performance. 

Numbers are limited due to hands-on nature of workshop, so please register early to secure your place. Participants will be learning about and using a range of lasers. Practitioners may wish to bring patients with long-term problems that they feel may benefit from photolaser therapy. Please discuss with staff at CHINA BOOKS SYDNEY.

DATE 18-19 July 2015, 10.00am - 5.00pm

The Adina Hotel
2 Lee Street, Sydney - Railway Square
CPE: 12 hours

WORKSHOP: Advanced Pulse Diagnosis - Han Dynasty Pulse Diagnosis

CHINA BOOKS is excited to announce the Ann Cecil-Sterman for Advanced Pulse Diagnosis - Han Dynasty Pulse Taking in the Style of the Mai Jing 2-day workshop in 2015.

Melbourne: 1st - 2nd August 2015
Sydney: 8th - 9th August 2015

In this two day class, Ann Cecil-Sterman will explore the intricate and difficult to master art of pulse diagnosis. She will share knowledge that has been handed down through the generations to her own teacher, Dr Jeffrey Yuen, 88th generation of the Jade Purity Sect.

In this rare lecture, Ann will explain the multi-dimensional tapestry that is pulse taking, the many pulse textures, and pulse taking techniques for all the channels of the entire acupuncture system. She is particularly excited to be teaching the rare skill of directional pulses, referred to in the classical texts but never explained in any textbook.

Some of the skills that Ann will impart to attendees

  • Determine whether each organ is performing its functions by sensing the vectors of the organs in the pulses
  • Diagnose pulses for all the channels of acupuncture, including the sinews, divergents and the Eight Extra Channels
  • Differentiate between pathological tightness and the tightness required to maintain organ function
  • Differentiate between tight and wiry pulses
  • Consider the taking of the pulses as a kind of qigong
  • Understand the parameters of depth, width, length, tempo and texture of all pulses and their implications in all positions
  • Locate an entity in the body through the pulse
  • Diagnose issues with organ function by probing the pulse
  • Identify blockages in the diaphragm and Dai Mai through the pulses
  • Learn a thorough step-by-step method of taking pulses
  • Be able to make clear diagnoses without relying entirely on signs and symptoms

Matthew Wood
Herbal Tonic presents: MATTHEW WOOD Evening Talks and Weekend Workshops


Dates: 28-30 August – 4-6 September 2015
Venue: CERES, Brunswick (Melbourne, Australia)


Matthew is an organic presenter and there may not be printed or projected notes as he likes a more intimate and freestyle type of event. Anyone who has been to his previous seminars will attest to the benefits of this - nuggets of wisdom flow freely and you will learn things no-one else can teach. Hence why our mp3/4s will be useful so you may refer back to these at any time.


Since Matthew's passion and expertise in presenting the physical, medical and practical energetics of traditional Western herbal medicine enables practitioners to incorporate these tools into modern-day practice the talks and workshops are suitable for naturopaths, herbalists, alchemists, and homeopaths (and students of these arts).

Seminars presented by CHINA BOOKS
Incorporating the body, movement and art in Relationship Therapy: A one-day workshop

This workshop is useful whether you work with couples or individuals. It will demonstrate the use of movement, the body and non-verbal creative processes in Relationship Therapy to extend and enhance verbal therapy.

Ever sat with a couple and found that talking about their issues does not result in sustained change? Even when they have good insight into their own or the other’s behaviour, they can’t change what they do and nothing improves. Over the last decade, neurobiological research has shown that ‘unwanted patterns of acting’ can become hard-wired in the brain. Therapists can learn to transform these patterns by stimulating both affect (mood) and cognition (thinking). Techniques that utilise movement and the body are known to help.

Participants will learn:

  • safe and respectful ways of dealing with the body, movement and art in Relationship Therapy
  • interventions to help clients gain a sense of empathy for their partner that is both cognitive (known on a thought level) and embodied (known on a felt ‘whole mind’ level)
  • techniques that help clients develop an experiential sense (through feeling, thinking and acting) of how they become trapped in repeated unwanted patterns of interaction
  • exercises that address and explore issues of sexuality and territory
  • ways of exploring the values and qualities clients need in a relationship
  • skills and exercises that help clients experience issues symbolically. This takes the pressure off the problem/s and allows couples to play with creating something together, negotiate conflicts and deal with third parties.

Christine Bolstad is a Clinical Psychologist with over 25 years experience using creative processes in therapy. Her professional development has included a period of special training in movement and action techniques under the guidance of Dr Bermudez in Europe. She has helped both clients and fellow professionals in the fields of relationships, family issues and interpersonal violence, trauma, anxiety and depression. Christine is eager to assist other helping professionals interested in learning these skills and applying them in their own practice. Christine practises at the Inner West Therapy Centre in Sydney.

Numbers are restricted to ensure maximum benefit to participants.

To register or for more information, please contact Christine on 9569 7433 or email:

Geovital Academy 2.5 Day Workshop. Held in Melbourne with discounts for interstate students.

Geovital Academy is a Naturopathic Clinic in Sulzberg, Austria, which teaches doctors, therapists, architects, builders and anyone else interested how to conduct their style of home assessment and be able to consult on healthier radiation free living and building. Exposure to domestic radiation from sources like mobile phone towers, internal wiring, smart meters, cordless technology, power supply cables and excesses of natural radiation (Geopathic Stress) is an underestimate health burden (see research ). Geovital was prompted decades ago to investigate and develop solutions for this in order to move patients through therapy resistance and past chronic complaints. (see videos )

You can learn how to conduct these assessments for your own use, to complement what you already do as a health professional, or as a stand-alone business. If you choose to work with us, your local Geovital office will support you with more in depth knowledge where needed, supply the shielding solutions you recommended and the back up support directly to your clients. We can talk to your client’s electrician and trades people when needed so you don’t have to. You remain the consultant, charge whatever is fair for your time and receive a share of the profits on the products used.

AU$675 incl GST. Included manual, assessment tools for Geopathic Stress and transport for field trips. Well priced accommodation is available onsite and nearby.

Discounts (may change in near future):
Those travelling from further than 150Km away receive $75 worth of credit to use on Geovital shielding solutions. Those travelling from interstate receive an ADDITIONAL $100 credit. (Yes, $175 in total) See website  for course and discount details.

Prof. Ivan Engler Dr. med. univ.,PhD : "Geopathic Zones…over time they weaken even the immune system. With almost all of my (roughly 300) patients with a cancerous disease, their bed was placed for years on an energetically unfavorable place in a Geopathic Zone."
