Format: Paperback
This is a strong compilation of bodywork techniques written by the founders of each technique. Accessible and thought-provoking, it provides theoretical as well as practical bases for each type of therapy. The book presents a wide range of options in a non-judgmental way, neither endorsing nor discounting them. This allows the reader to choose the method most appropriate for his or her needs. It is excellent for trauma survivors who wish to reclaim ownership of their bodies, either in conjunction with or separate from talk therapy. However, one does not need to have experienced trauma to benefit from bodywork. Therefore, I strongly recommend it to all audiences.

As we are learning rather slowly, the mind-body separation is largely an idea whose time has passed. Even consciousness and thinking are linked to the body more than anyone has ever imagined. Authors like Damasio write extensively on this and Candice Perk has also pushed this frontier forward as well. It is not an area a lot of people have heard about, but the techniques are powerful and I have experienced them first hand as well as using some of them in my own psychological practice.

This book contains individual chapters written by the founders of various popular movements within this rapidly evolving field. Almost all of the techniques are based on the principle "you can heal what you feel" and getting in touch with the body is the royal road to fully experiencing your feelings.

These techniques are powerful and they are probably not used more because they just haven't caught on. Christine Caldwell's essay at the beginning does a good job of explaining this movement toward body-centered therapies and positioning the various schools within an overall context.

This is a good introduction to this area of study and contains essays from the major writers. If you are interested in the mind-body connection, you will enjoy this book and learn a lot about how we disown the body, how to use the body for emotional healing and how to reconnect with feeling.

How the author suggests ways to find a Therapist and does not mention the Therapists OWN THERAPY is inexcusable. Rest of the book is O.K.
