"Michael Shea's fifth volume on biodynamic craniosacral therapy is a rigorous body of knowledge. From its in-depth exploration of embryology to its fully illustrated treatment techniques for babies in intensive care, the book is packed with wisdom that therapists will find priceless in their commitment to connect with the deepest rhythms of the human body. It raises the bar on ethical standards of practice for pediatric craniosacral care."
—Sharon Desjarlais, CC, CMMS, featured columnist in Massage Today and cocreator of the Client-Rich System for Women in the Healing Arts
"Biodynamic craniosacral therapy is a living, growing field that expands our relationship with the natural healing forces of life. In this volume, Dr. Shea opens that exploration further and shares new knowledge, thought, observation, and palpation exercises that help to expand the limits of our perception. Kudos to Dr. Shea for including the writings of women teachers and coauthors to bring in the 'feminine' aspects of the work."
—Mary Louise and Christopher Muller of the LifeShapes Institute
"Michael Shea continues to develop his vast and multilayered vision of the biodynamic therapeutic practice in this fifth volume. He and his numerous contributors continue to provide original commentary and innovative guidance, integrating a host of topics—ranging from spirituality and psychology to cleansing methods—into the practice of biodynamic craniosacral therapy."
—John Chitty, Colorado Institute for Energy Studies
"Another great detailed volume, this time focused on enhancing our understanding of embryology from a biodynamic perspective … a useful and fascinating reference for biodynamic and other practitioners."
