Bodywork : what type of massage to get, and how to make the most of it

Swedish massage, aromatherapy, shiatsu, Rolfing, Alexander Technique, reflexology, CranioSacral Therapy - these are all different kinds of what is referred to as bodywork. One of the most widespread and powerful of the "complementary therapies," bodywork is helping millions just plain feel better and/or achieve a greater integration of body, mind, and spirit. Whether you're a longtime bodywork enthusiast or someone who has had little or no experience with massage, Bodywork is the essential guide, answering all the key questions about every different kind of major bodywork therapy. And unlike the other books on massage and bodywork, this is not a how-to; it is a guide to getting bodywork. There is a dizzying array of massage and bodywork available to all of us - yet few people have the time, energy, or money to explore each one in depth and discover which is best for them. Bodywork gives a vivid, first-person narrative account of what each type of bodywork actually feels like. It also includes: * a definition of each type of bodywork
the origins of each type and the theory behind it
healing properties and/or spiritual and relaxation benefits
contraindications
how much a session will cost and how many sessions you will need
resources for further information
and much, much more - all at the reader's fingertips. Bodywork draws upon the resources of dozens of talented practitioners, the author's own extensive training, and all the latest literature. It presents enough information to be of interest and value to the professional, while at the same time being totally accessible to the general reader.
