How comfortable are you with your body? Do you suffer from backaches or other chronic pain? Are you eager to enhance your performance in sports or dance? Or do you simply want to feel lithe, free, and energized? Most of us respond to our body by ignoring what it is telling us or popping a pill to anesthetize it. But lasting pleasure, health, and self-understanding can come from befriending your body and choosing the body practice—or “body way”—that is right for you.
A GUIDE TO EXPLORING BODYWAYS
Discovering the Body’s Wisdom is the most authoritative and complete guide available for this fast-growing area of holistic health. Drawing on more than twenty years of research and hands-on experience, Mirka Knaster offers a wealth of information to help you understand and choose among more than sixty mind-body practices—from traditional Eastern disciplines such as T’ai Chi, Shiatsu, and Yoga to modern Western techniques such as Rolling, Feldenkrais, and Trigger Point Therapy.
She answers such questions as:
- What are the reasons for selecting this method? –
- What can you expect from one session or a series?
- How can you find a qualified practitioner?
- What, if any, are the “consumer bewares”?
The body way entries also contain vivid personal accounts, illustrated “experiences” you can try at home, and fascinating profiles of leaders in the field.
