Summary
"This is the ultimate guide to working with top-to-toe massage and therapeutic oils to ease the stresses and strains of modern life. More than 200 illustrated techniques are included, showing how to harness the natural healing ability of touch and essential oils, and demonstrating how easily these therapies can be practiced at home as part of a daily routine. Throughout the book, all the techniques are illustrated in detailed, full-colour step-by-step sequences, and there are over 1500 pictures in all, making all the various disciplines easy to follow, learn and practice with confidence. Expert guidance by qualified practitioners helps the reader to prepare for a session, with tips on creating the mood, gathering basic equipment and warming up, either to give or receive treatment. Specific sections on treating different parts of the body demonstrate the type of massage strokes, pressure and essential oils most suitable to treat these areas, with guidance on how to target the common ailments associated with them. In addition, an accessible guide to physical and emotional healing through Reiki and meditation will help to raise energy, boost immunity, correct postural faults, ease respiratory problems, and promote calm and clarity." - product description
