Possibly the most famous and widely used single resource in the field of bodywork (required for national certification in massage therapy), this beautifully written book gives a richly detailed picture of how and why the body responds to therapeutic touch. A reader-friendly yet scientifically reliable and detailed introduction to the human body, this updated edition (including new introductory and supplemental material) surveys 'bodywork,' showing how its practices alter deep-seated patterns of body and mind. Possibly the most famous and widely used resource in therapeutic bodywork, this beautifully written, detailed and reader-friendly picture of how and why the body responds to touch is both scientifically reliable and inspiring. Furthering the presentation of recent research in biochemistry, cell biology and energy medicine in the Second Edition, this new and greatly expanded edition includes advances in neurophysiology and physics, reconfiguring knowledge of mind and body, from 'microgenesis' to 'quantum consciousness.'
