COMPLETE BODY MASSAGE COURSE

NICOLA STEWART    Book Number: 83328    Product format: Paperback

Since the start of the 20th century massage has become increasingly popular as people search for alternative ways of dealing with stress and health issues, yet it is not a new technique, it seems to have been around since early times. Massaging is the manipulation of the body's soft tissues and there are many different types of massage, though they can be broadly broken into Eastern and Western techniques. Illustrated by dozens of colour photographs this attractive book clearly explains over 75 techniques. It also contains chapters on the various lubricants and massage oils, anatomy basics, self-massage and safety guidance. Aromatherapy is covered too. Amongst the different techniques described are Thai, Swedish, Ayurvedic, Acupressure and Shiatsu and the philosophies of 15 popular therapies. There are also instructions for reflexology, pregnancy massage, sports massage, infants' massage and face and scalp massage. Amazingly informative, pleasingly presented, many of the techniques can be self-applied, providing relief from headaches, travel sickness, anxiety and other afflictions. Softback, 208pp, step-by-step colour photos, 19.7 x 26.7cm.
