However, this book would also be an excellent resource for anyone considering massage therapy -- as a profession or a hobby. I'm going to recommend it specifically to those I meet who express interest in attending a massage school. It goes beyond the "I want to learn how to give my partner a decent massage" books, but it is not so advanced that only trained therapists and body-workers can understand it. It's a good way to get acquainted with the breadth of modalities that all fall under the collective title of "massage." And it introduces prospective massage students to important considerations such as draping, body mechanics and contraindications.
Stone's work fills an important niche, in that it is both very accessible (especially with the amazing photographs) and very informative. It therefore can be an important tool for the curious, the student and the professional.
So the photos really are good. It's nice to look at, especially if I wanted to have this on my coffee table or maybe in the waiting room. But, as a massage therapist looking for some new techniques, this book is just WAY too general.
If you want some pretty massage photos, or a an introduction to different massage techniques to use on your significant other ... then this book will be good for that. But if you're a licensed massage practitioner, go elsewhere.
It's one of the prettiest books I've ever seen, a absolute feast for the eyes, as befits a book on an activity that offers sensuous, spiritual bliss! The scrumptious color, pleasing design, and wonderful photos help anchor the clearly stated intructions and background information. It feels as spacious and generous as the gift of touch.
It evokes an immediate sense of relaxation. And like a good perfume, it builds an interesting blend of contrasts. Opulence and grounded simplicity, spice and serenity, all in one world tour of massage techniques and the philosophies that inluence them.
Author Victoria Jordan Stone is an acknowleged leader in the field, as an author, teacher and administrator/co-owner of the prestigious Blue Ridge School of Massage. Her years of experience funnel into the book a wealth of wisdom, practical information, and authoritaive gravitas. Her love of the art and science of massage embues it with soulful beauty. Her continued work as a hand-on practitioner provides it with freshness and authenticity.
I love this book and heartily recommend it for professionals and non-professionals alike, as a gift, a reference, a pleasure map, to dress up the coffee table, and invite lively conversation.
This book would make a great wedding or anniversary gift for couples to establish a relationship of positive touch. I can see the application for elders and youth and a learning tool for health educators.
This is a valuable book to have in your library to promote and encourage therapeutic touch.
I am honored tohave this book in my therapeutic library and look forward to more from Ms. Stone.
