"This revised version of the book examines touch as a form of communication and with great insight has expanded on the importance of those offering these forms of care being able to recognize the ways in which touch therapies can be interpreted. It is vital for massage therapists to understand touch in the context of the client's life and beliefs, culture, age, gender, religion, and health status in order that delivery may be sensitively offered and accepted. Ethics receives a justifiably expanded degree of attention in the text, accurately reflecting both the profession's own increased focus on the important topic and society's demand for excellence in the ethical arena.

This is an illustrated practice manual designed as a guide for students who have already taken classes in Sacred Pelvic Healing Massage, (also called Sacred Sexual Healing Massage). This work was developed by Amara Karuna over many years, integrating many styles of pelvic massage bodywork. This is not a thorough training manual and is not intended for those who have no experience in pelvic massage. It contains explicit images of genital areas and how to do healing on them. This is a unique, slow and penetrating touch on the pelvic area, which most people have never experienced. It is relaxing, nurturing, healing and pleasurable all at once. This work draws from the techniques of sacred spot massage, Orgasmic Meditation, cranial sacral work, fascia release, Rivers of Love bodywork, Chi Nei Tsang, Taoist energy healing and cultivation, and deep tissue and acupressure bodywork. It integrates an awareness of the sacredness of our bodies and sexual energies, as well as the emotional distresses carried in the pelvic areas. This is very deep work that touches into our core channel energies, and can bring up strong emotions and be very transformative.

The book on "Massage for Health and Healing: The Ayurvedic and Spiritual Energy Approach" is a commendable guide to a very important medical aid which reigned with dignity in the past. Though it was neglected for many years, the art of massage has recaptured its central place amongst the forms of healing, prevention of disease, and promoting health. Massage is the oldest of all techniques for relieving pain, shaping the organs, regenerating tissues, and correcting almost all internal malfunctions. Massage has its origin in the natural instincts of animals, handed over to the concious man with a mandate to improve it as far as possible with his old wisdom. Despite advancements in knowledge and complex techniques, massage retains its usefulness and significance even as a method to save a person from immediate death, as in heart failure, breathlessness, and several other fatal ailments. In all kinds of therapeutic approaches, massage alone can maintain certain links. Any method of treatment with a holistic approach cannot leave out massage. Ayurveda upholds its psychosomatic benefits. Sushruta and other texts explain it, classifying various types of massages and instructions on their manipulations and effects. In Ayurveda, the human body constitutes three functional entities, the balance of which maintains health; an upset in this balance increases diseases. The book serves not only as a guide to novice practioners but also as a manual and refresher guide for those who are experienced ayurvedic masseurs. The contents (techniques) of this book will bring relief and better health to those faithfully apply them in their daily lives.
