Format: Paperback
I so enjoyed reading this book. Francesca McCartney's writing style is very clear and the content very compelling. I appreciated how she began the book with a(very interesting)personal story. After just the first two chapters I realized that I was going to receive a HUGE amount of information in a very accessible format in this book. I can't imagine the process of distilling so much complex information into such an easy to read format. The endnotes and bibliography demonstrate the extensive thought and research that went into this valuable sourcebook.

I've read hundreds of books on Chakras and Energy Healings and this is the most informative, grounded and clear book I've ever seen. The books is well written, easy to understand and has so much practical information I find myself returning to it over and over again.

One of the highlights of my summer was serving as a teaching assistant at a workshop called "The Language of Intuition," at the Omega Institute in Rhinebeck, New York. The workshop, taught by Dr. Francesca McCartney, founder of the Academy of Intuition Medicine in Sausalito CA., was a sampling of the material in her book, Body of Health. I trained with Dr. McCartney and this review showcases her book which should be a foundation for anyone building a healthy, balanced, and fulfilling life

The major building blocks of developing your ability to listen to your intuitive intelligence are described in great detail, with exercises that move from theory to integration. Since all of you have worked with me, do you remember my focus on grounding from the first moment we begin? Body of Health shows you myriad ways to de-code what it really means to be grounded and how vitally important it is. Grounding to the earth is an integral part of the practice of living in health and balance. We are constantly exchanging energy and information, and an overload of this is called stress. It's an over used word, but the depletion is real and there are many ways to manage it. The author describes herself as an "energy technician," and my goal for you all is to have full toolboxes of resources for the inevitable challenges to your mental, physical and spiritual health. These are complex systems that make up the human experience and there is a beauty of enhancing wisdom through experiential exercises in the areas of your life force, aura, and chakra system. For those who want to start a meditation practice, there is a very comprehensive section on just how to do that.

I have client who, when asked to set an intention for our work together said, "I want to trust myself." How wise of her.

Format: Paperback
So many of us have clocked hours and hours at yoga classes, workshops, seminars, or at the gym. Sometimes we can't make it to class, and sometimes the need for centering arises suddenly, so here's a handbook to help you develop techniques to complement those healthy habits.

The ideas in this book helped me develop a personalized daily practice. I turn to it for inspiration and how-to's and depend on it to help me through my week whether I make it to my yoga class or not. Its many techniques and how to's help you use spare minutes throughout the day to develop your own health-giving and spirit-nourishing practices. It's all good.

Format: Paperback
I have read Body of Health myriad times over the last few years -- and have purchased more than a few copies (as my friends have become so attached to the copies I have loaned that it has seemed a pity to request them back!). Body of Health is a fascinating alchemy of science, technique, beautiful imagery, and down-to-earth practical advice. Therein are clear examples detailing disturbances in one's energetic anatomy -- and how to distinguish, diagnose and heal them. And the reverse is true as well: how to notice and appreciate when all is running smoothly, and the sensations and indicators of energetic balance in one's life.

This book is precise, clear, and rich with textured information and intriguing case studies. It is not a guide to mindlessly peruse with a mug of hot chocolate -- but a core curriculum to which to diligently refer in varied circumstances (hot chocolate optional). The contents are truly encyclopedic.

Precise and clear does not mean simplistic, however. The book wonderfully illustrates the vibratory effects of colour, imagery and sensory input on a complex interweaving and vivified energetic system -- our natural birthright. The author really spurred me to think in new ways about the true consequences of my daily interactions and their direct personal repercussions. I can no longer be dismissive of that which my body and my intuition have been trying so valiantly to impart. Nor the consequences of refusing to heed them. She has clear check lists which describe and remedy symptoms not generally validated in standard medical practise, today. This book and the accompanying recorded meditations (on CDs) have replaced fruitless and frustrating trips to doctors for symptoms they could neither recognise nor ameliorate.
