Noted author and massage therapist Lucinda Lidell provides a sampling of Western and Eastern massage techniques for the amateur to practice at home. Beginning with basic instruction on how to set up a relaxing space for massage, including a list of essential supplies (such as oils, towels, and padding), Lidell then scans the body head to toe and explains the elements of proper massage (both technique and sequence). The book's third section reveals Liddell's thoughts on Shiatsu massage and its impact on the body's anatomy. She also teaches a bit of reflexology (including foot and hand treatments), and provides lively discussion on the power of human touch. This is an excellent, handy reference and guide for massage students in training.
A great book!
