Useful for anyone wishing to analyze and thereby improve her own health or that of loved ones. (Would be an valuable resource for therapists, counselors, and other health care providers.)

Deals with the same topic but is much more detailed than "Your Face Never Lies" by the same author. Not an encyclopedic work, but pretty comprehensive.

Spinal Manipulation Made Simple

The author's focus is on the problem of joint fixations underlying many soft tissue pain syndromes, and most particularly on soft tissue release to ease back pain and achieve comfortable body alignment. Using a gentler soft tissue release technique, as contrasted with thrusting techniques, joint fixations in the spine, sacrum, pelvis, and ribcage can be adjusted, without causing the patient unnecessary pain. These soft tissue techniques, coupled with the author's understanding of how the spine gets in and out of trouble, comprise the content of this book.

Eastern Body Western Mind- Psychology and the Chakra System*
This book on the chakra system explains Eastern theory by way of Western psychology. It focuses on vital issues in therapy today: addiction, codependence, physical and sexual abuse, family dynamics, character structures, personal empowerment, feminism, male emancipation, sexuality, politics, and spirituality. It integrates techniques from bioenergetics to visualization, depth psychology to spiritual practice. Arranged schematically, the book uses the inherent structure of the chakra system as a map on which to chart the Western understanding of individual development, allowing the realization of the spiritual nature of personality development with the structural logic of the body. Each chakra is discussed in its own chapter. Body types specific to each are also discussed, as are particular pathologies.
