DetailsAn essential guide for anyone with an interest in body therapy, this book contains an exploration of the connections between Eastern and Western beliefs about health and the human body, based on the concept of energy as a fundamental force in nature. This hidden-energy theory incorporates facets of Chinese acupuncture and Hindu yoga, while establishing that Western medical knowledge validates these ancient Eastern insights.

Medical practitioners as well as patients can use this book to learn how to:
-Bridge Eastern and Western belief systems
-Connect Eastern Yoga and Western theories of anatomy
-Bridge the physical and spiritual worlds
-Communicate in the therapeutic setting
-Create a healing perspective
-Expanding their vision of the human body
