From the Back Cover:

Massage is one of the most natural ways to de-stress the human body. With the increasing physical and emotional pressures of modern living making relentless demands on the body, massage has the potential to reduce strain and alleviate pain. It is also invaluable in the preventive treatment of sporting and performing injuries. Everyone, young or old, can experience the benefits of massage, whether in the form of remedial treatment, an Eastern technique such as Shiatsu, or simply a spontaneous neck massage.

In this beautifully illustrated and easy to follow guide, Stewart Mitchell demonstrates the many ways in which the beneficial effects of massage are given. Exhaustively researched, handsomely illustrated, and precisely written, this rewarding guide is essential reading for all those who seek to restore a sense of calm and harmony to their lives. It includes:
• The origin, development and rationale of massage
• Massage treatments – from Western methods to Eastern techniques
• Self-help massage as an aid to relaxation
• Using massage to help combat stress and fight fatigue
• Step-by-step routines and treatments

"This excellent book by Stewart Mitchell provides wide coverage of massage in its various forms and techniques. It is recommended to practitioners wishing to specialize in this subject and to students as a valuable background to one of the most important aspects of the healing arts".
