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.
