An Holistic Guide to Massage incorporates the links between body, mind and soul in the search for well-being. This approach has not been taken by any other text written about massage. Other texts currently available tend to focus on one theory and one theory only, where-as this book encourages students to look at the wider picutre encompassing different theories. The students are then able to make their own mind up about which massage therapy to practice. This title is ideal for any students taking Beauty Therapy NVQ levels 2 or 3, as well as VTCT, City & Guilds, BTEC and other massage courses.

Reiki is an ancient and profoundly simple system of “laying on of hands” healing derived from Tibetan Buddhism. In the West, Reiki has been kept highly secret for many years. ESSENTIAL REIKI presents full information on all three degrees of this healing system, most of it in print for the first time. Teaching from the perspective that Reiki healing belongs to all people, Diane Stein breaks new ground in her classic guide to this ancient practice. While no book can replace the directly received Reiki “attunements,” ESSENTIAL REIKI provides everything else that the healer, practitioner, and teacher of this system needs. From the Hardcover edition.
