Review

Pleasure Healing is a joy to read. I can think of no better compliment than to say I’d like to have written it myself! Mary Beth Janssen has given those in search of a healthier, more fulfilling life a roadmap that is both inspiring and practical. Turning these pages is a spa journey in itself—a beautiful release from distraction and worry guided by an author who is intuitive and wise.”
—Deborah Szekely, cofounder of Rancho La Puerta with her husband Edmond Szekely, and founder of the Golden Door Spa

Pleasure Healing: Mindful Practices & Sacred Spa Rituals for Self-Nurturing
Loved it! Pleasure Healing is such a helpful book that simply shows us how to reduce the stress in our lives, and really make each day more enriching and fulfilling.
(Which is much easier said than done.) It really is so helpful!
(I ordered 12 more for friends and gifts.)
I just gave one as a hostess gift, and it was the hit of her party, cause she had been so stressed getting ready...
Since then I've heard nothing but rave reviews from everybody.
Thank you Mary Beth!

Pleasure Healing was such a well-rounded, intelligent book to read. It was organized/well-structured, excellent writing that was easy to read. It didn't use foreign 'futuristic psychobabble'. It was entertaining and educational. I can't say enough good things about it. 240 pgs in a book that is perfect for carrying in your purse that you can pull out and open up to any chapter and read at any point. I highly recommend it. Books are a bit of a challenge to give as gifts as there are not many that appeal to everyone....but this one would be perfect for ages 18 and up.

I loved the author's book Radiant Beauty and now I have another wonderful text to add to my shelf. This book makes me slow down and think about what I need in my busy, crazy life to take care of myself, both body and soul. This one is special and written by someone who is a true expert! So, personal, I feel like she is sitting next to me when I read it. Highly recommend it!

I bought this for several family members and friends as gifts, they ALL loved it. Sometimes we need to be reminded to take care of ourselves so we can continue to help others, all the recipients of this wonderful book are caregivers and they greatly appreciated the reminder to take care of themselves as well. GREAT job Mary Beth, you do inspire!!!

It's a cute book but I found it to be mundane. Some of the info is OK, nothing new. The author rambles on about the importance of relaxing and trying to persuade the reader about a spa experience. I thought I get more out of this book. It is well written but it was not what I was looking for. The fonts were smaller too, so when I read this book in bed at night, it made my eyes tired quicker and had to close the book. I think I should have ordered the Aveda Rituals book instead. (I wish I did instead of this book) Perhaps this book is what you're looking for, but for now, I will pass this on.
