The Healing Therapies Bible: Godsfield Bibles by  Claire Gillman

“The Healing Therapies Bible” profiles more than 50 therapies, explaining the principles on which they are based, their history in practice, and wherever possible, shows them in action.

New healing techniques are now being taught all over the world. Some are associated with a particular healer, such as Brandon Bays’ The Journey and Vianna Stibal’s Theta Healing. Others respond to our spiritual ascension, such as crystal healing with new-generation, high-vibration crystals and flower remedies. Some have longer histories, and have evolved from a wealth of traditions – such as Mindfulness meditation, with its roots in Buddhism and western stress reduction techniques, and regression therapy, more recently popularized by Harvard Psychiatry Professor Dr Brian Weiss. Also included are the classic techniques of complementary therapists, such as massage, reiki, reflexology and aromatherapy.
