5.0 out of 5 stars An outstanding choice for any new age or health collection 12 Jan 2009
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
THE INDIAN SPA is the first of its kind to consider the many wellness therapies that originated in India, offering a synthesis and analysis of the country's four major healing systems - Ayurveda, Unani, Siddha and Tibetan traditional medicine, as well as naturopathy, yoga, meditation and more. Essays cover alternative health processes and therapies and provide both history and outlines of treatments, making this an outstanding choice for any new age or health collection.
