Product Description

From the Publisher

While the medical benefits of stress-reducing massage are well documented, many people cannot afford wither the time or the money for an hour-long session at the hands of a trained professional. In Anne Kent Rush's new volume of massage techniques for today's busy times, she explains how massage "mini-vacations" spaced throughout the day can significantly reduce the effects of stress on the body and soul. Designed to be performed at home or in the office, the vividly photographed techniques target typical problem areas such as the neck, shoulders, back, feet, and hands. Done either alone or with a partner, this modern massage relaxes and rejuvenates in minimal time. Now everyone can reduce stress and stress-related illness, increase productivity, and just plain feel better, in as little as five to ten minutes a day.

i chanced upon this book and i'm so glad i bought it because i've seen only one other copy. at the time i bought this book i had just been newly practising the art of massage (on my very grateful boyfriend), and i found this a very useful step-by-step guide. the only reason i rated this four stars is because i haven't read enough massage books to make a definitive comparison. for beginners, i'd definitely recommend it.

The two reasons I bought this book were the striking photography and the ease of use. I was not disappointed. The routines are simple and can be done anywhere, which is great. I highly recommend it.

Can't wait for my own copy April 26 2005
By CB - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
My neice checked this book out of her school library for a project. I scanned through it and was hooked! The techniques are simple but effective. Some of the moves are similiar to what I had been doing to relieve sinus and neck pain. Nice validation! Many can be done on your own, which is great for us single people. I immediately ordered my own copy!
