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 Rolfing, 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 bodyway entries also contain vivid personal accounts, illustrated "experiences" you can try at home, and fascinating profiles of leaders in the field.
