1.0 out of 5 stars Just use Wikipedia 14 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase
This "book" is a glorified 43 page summary of what information you can find on Wikipedia about massage. It doesn't teach anything at all, it's just a very short overview of various massage techniques and their histories. Absolutely pointless. Avoid.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not all Massages are the Same 25 April 2012
By Rick
Verified Purchase
Not all massages are the same. Until now I have been put off trying a massage for fear of looking stupid. Now, armed with the knowledge spelt out in this eBook I feel more confident seeking out just the right massage for my aches and pains.

1.0 out of 5 stars Misrepresentation 11 Jun 2012
By Missy - Published on Amazon.com
Let me set the record straight. The Alexander Technique, described in this book as a "massage technique," is absolutely NOT massage. And any massage practitioner who tells you they can teach you the Alexander Technique is 100% wrong, unless he or she has also been trained as an Alexander Technique teacher. If you're looking for the Alexander Technique, go to [...] for information on finding an AmSAT-certified teacher near you. Training to become an Alexander Technique teacher requires 1600 hours of hands-on study over at least three years. This is more than three times the amount of training that a massage therapist receives. Furthermore, massage and the Alexander Technique are entirely different systems. The Alexander Technique is an educational discipline that teaches you how to improve posture, balance and coordination in order to overcome injury, reduce stress, change unconscious behavior, and use your body more skillfully in everything you do--from sitting at your desk to running, dancing, playing an instrument or carrying a suitcase. Massage therapists are not certified in the Alexander Technique. Don't be fooled!

1.0 out of 5 stars holistic body/mind modalities are NOT all "massage" 13 Jun 2012
By in touch with reality - Published on Amazon.com
Hi!
I'm a professional, licensed, certified massage therapist with expertise in Swedish, Sports, Deep Tissue, Hot Stone, Prenatal, and Thai massage.
I've not read this book, but I noticed the title and could not help commenting. I think this book will fail to give accurate info, because the author lumps non-massage modalities in under the general term 'massage.' I have been exposed to many 'body-mind' modalities. Many massage practitioners like to explore and expand their horizons, and often name their style of massage after their inspiration: for example, Thai Yoga Massage. But this can be confusing.
Yoga is not massage. Tai Chi is not massage (this is obvious!). Feldenkrais, Alexander Technique, Rolfing, and Craniosacral Technique should NOT be described as 'massage.' These are unique body-mind modalities that are more sophisticated than 'mere' massage (not to denigrate my profession). As an MT, I should think a book intending to educate people about massage techniques would get it right, especially in the title!

1.0 out of 5 stars Poorly written and inaccurate! 13 Jun 2012

This book misrepresents the Alexander Technique. The Alexander Technique is in no way a massage therapy technique. The book is poorly written and inaccurate!

1.0 out of 5 stars don't need to buy this book 13 Jun 2012
By JJ - Published on Amazon.com
Just by seeing the title,I know not to buy this book. Alexander, Rolfing, Craniosacral, Feldenkrais are not massage. To say that they are massage will send trusting consumers to massage therapists who most likely cannot deliver these, unless they happen to have also taken the proper training outside of their massage training.

1.0 out of 5 stars This book is so bad.... 14 Jun 2012
By lindagrace1 - Published on Amazon.com
How bad is it? Even the section on Swedish Massage doesn't name any original techniques used for Swedish Massage, leading me to think the author doesn't know what Swedish Massage is. These subjects, including Swedish Massage, could be read about for free on *even* Wikipedia with more authority.
In addition, a number of these named "techniques" are not massage at all. Especially Alexander Technique, Feldenkreis, and Rolfing Structural Integration should not be placed in
a massage category. Craniosacral work is also not massage.
Spending even 3 bucks on this? I don't think so.
