Dynamic Bodyuse for Effective, Strain-Free Massage
How to apply pressure without straining your body or damaging your hands is one of the greatest challenges involved in massage. The most significant cause of early retirement from the massage profession is the cumulative strains on the body developed in the course of performing massages. The growth of the profession in recent years has been accompanied by an increase in the number of work induced problems. Practitioners can strain their hands, particularly their thumbs, fingers and wrists, and also their shoulders and backs. This book highlights aspects of massage that can lead to these problems and offers guidance for avoiding these. The focus is on how to use your body safely and effectively in massage sessions. This includes involving your whole body to generate the power and movement that supports your working hands, saving your hands by using them skilfully and conserving them by using other body areas such as your forearms and elbows whenever possible. This book is essential reading for anyone involved in massage, whether you are a student, a professional massage practitioner or teacher, sports massage therapist or aromatherapist.

The Solution Lies Within: Towards a New Medicine for the Body and the Mind
In The Solution Lies Within , surgeon and psychotherapist, Thierry Janssen examines the daunting task of reconnecting: reconnecting our mind to our body, in order to gain a true sense of well-being, and reconnecting our body to our inner resources, in order to prevent or to heal illness. Through simple often age-old solutions, the author sets out on a fascinating quest, exploring Western and Eastern techniques, favoring a global approach to the human being and advocating a form of holistic medicine based on the cooperation between conventional and complementary or alternative practitioners. Inviting the reader to discover the astounding capacities of human beings, The Solution Lies Within is a must-read for anyone interested in his or her health and well-being, in particular for those looking for an alternative to today's trend of over-medication. Based on more than 500 recent scientific studies, the book is broken up into three parts: a mind-based medicine to treat the body, a body-based medicine to treat the mind and, lastly, and an energy-based medicine to treat the body and the mind. Such a work is unprecedented. Avoiding any bias, the author offers a new and original understanding of health and disease. And the clarity of his style deftly transforms a complex subject matter into an enjoyable and highly-readable work.
