Bodywork and the mind-body connection... 10 mars 2009
Par Jed Shlackman - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit ( De quoi s'agit-il? )
This book offers a guide to working with the body to help release emotional patterns and emotional traumas. It explains how the body reflects the psychological patterns that we hold and how we can use bodywork and physical postures to help release patterns and live more freely. This book is relatively short, has useful illustrations, and explains the relevant topics in a clear way. It's a nice introduction to the topic, though it doesn't go into as much depth as some other books in a similar genre. If you want to learn more about Rolfing and body-mind energetics you'll likely wish to seek out books that are more practitioner oriented. Also, this book isn't a book on Rolfing... it is written by someone who has worked a lot with Rolfing who has designed a system of body-mind energetic work that is taught independent of Rolfing. This book provides a valuable perspective on holistic bodywork and body-mind energetic healing work, so people in this field will likely benefit from Karrasch's "Meet Your Body."

Good tips, poor writing 6 mars 2009
Par Chen Sun - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit ( De quoi s'agit-il? )
If you are looking for therapeutic exercises that takes little time to learn and don't cost much skill or time, this is a good book.

In the bodywork arts, there are many books like this. They will all describe their therapeutic benefits. Yoga, tai chi, physical therapy exercises, rolfing, Feldenkrais, etc. This book makes such claims as well, but its are highly speculative. For example, the book claims fibromyalgia is primarily caused by trauma to one's breath. There's some truth to this, but it underestimates the scope of the illness.

The preliminary edition I received needs to be rewritten. For example, the author defines "CORE" acronym as "Coax Order, Restore Ease", and he later uses the word "core" as meaning, I don't know exactly what. I think he means inner physical structural self, but it's unclear. This concept is essential to the book.

Next, the author is writing about physical exercises such that these also describe emotional, spiritual, and health relief or attainments. Most bodywork books do this to some extent. The problem is that when this author writes these, it disrupts flow and is confusing.

Third, the author brings in excessive amounts of his own experiences. With his thousands of past patients, this should be unnecessary and sounds unscientific.

Fourth, it doesn't help that the forward endorsement is written by a MD who happens to be his brother-in-law.

My sense is the author hasn't subjected his theory and practices to much criticism. The book started as a set of instructions to his students--who generally don't criticize much. And this book doesn't examine when its theory doesn't work--e.g. patients who decide not to return or patients who stay (then we know it didn't work). There are innumerable statements that can be easily refuted, and it appears the author hasn't had someone willing to challenge him.

Overall, a set of practical, easy to use, inexpensive exercises that have value. Writing can be significantly improved.

8/14/2013 update. Clarification-- book's exercises are mostly simplistic and more suitable for individuals who can no longer actively exercises.

Very informative 12 mars 2009
Par Jennifer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit ( De quoi s'agit-il? )
I enjoyed reading this book and I also learned quite a bit as well. Noah Karrasch's breakdown of the "hinges in our body" are very well described with very easy exercises / stretches to "oil" your own hinges for greater body balance and health. His focus is mainly on the big toes, knees, hip, lumbosacral, stomach, heart, arms, shoulders, elbows, wrists, fingers and head. His focus on feet and toes was very interesting for me because I have longed believe that many structural problems stem from our feet and ankles. Another area of focus is the stomach and psoas muscle. As a massage therapist I know the importance of those muscles in proper posture, but very few books focus on them in the same in depth this book does. I will be very happy to share this book with my clients in my practice as well as utilize many of Noah's strectches, exercises and relaxation techniques during my treatments.

Health through Alignment 9 mars 2009
Par Rachel B. Ramey (blogger/author) - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit ( De quoi s'agit-il? )
If I had to summarize this book, I would say that it is about improving one's health by improving one's posture. It gets far more specific than that, though, describing 10-13 different "hinges" within the body. Each of these hinges should be properly aligned and accustomed to use in order for the body to be in optimum health.

Like most science/health writers today, Mr. Karrasch seems to come from an evolutionary worldview. He is respectful, though, of those who do not. While I am not sure how much of the emotional/psychological applications and connections I agree with in this text, I found nothing to argue with where the physiological content is concerned. If you are concerned about "psychobabble" or "New Age" content, I would encourage you to ignore those sentences or paragraphs and simply focus on the mechanical aspects of the author's work, as there is much to be gained.

In each section, the "hinge" is described and some applications are made - typically emotional or psychological. In some instances, specific physical ramifications of misalignment (poor blood flow, for instance) are mentioned. Then several exercises are described for developing a proper alignment and flexibility of the hinge. Although there is some "theory" here, all in all it's a very practical book.

An Important subject 17 mars 2009
Par Scott Masterton - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit ( De quoi s'agit-il? )
Until reading "Meet Your Body" by Noah Karrasch I'd always thought rolfing was something that you did after one of those all night college partys. I was wrong.

Rolfing, as developed by Ida Rolf, is a mind body practice similar to Yoga, but with a focus on healing mental and physical trauma. This is not a new concept as Yogis, Qi Gong and Tai Qi practitioners have known that the body is in fact the subconscious mind. We can hide from mental trauma by stuffing our thoughts and memories away, but the place that we "stuff" them always becomes diseased.

In Noah Karrasch's new book he recommends a simple practice of cleansing and realigning what Rolfers call "hinges". When old physical patterns are changed, the joints or hinges "oiled" and moving, much of our subconscious trauma is released; we no longer have to act old patterns of behavior as the patterns have been changed to more natural and healthy ones. As odd as this sounds there is definitely experiential truth in this. As any yoga teacher who has taught for any length of time will tell you, it is not unusual to witness emotional release (crying, anger...even laughter) when a yoga practitioner moves into and holds a particular asana (posture).

This short book contains a good, beginner mind/body practice that can certianly be of service to many many people. This message that the root of sickness is in the subconscious and that health (both mental and physical) can be maintained by a daily practice is a powerful and important one. I enjoyed Karrasch's views and practice very much and his wisdom has added to my own physical practice.
