Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Kenneth B Siegfried, BA (Pace University)
Description: This book is a guide for nurses who wish a hands-on connection with their patients unlike what they learn in most nursing schools. It teaches massage, energy work, and the importance of identifying stressors in their lives as well as the lives of their patients.
Purpose: The purpose is to teach nurses some basic massage techniques that they can incorporate into their daily care. It covers the importance of being tuned into stressors and how massage and positive energy can have a beneficial effect. The book covers a number of basic massage routines that can be done in as little as one minute. Although the benefits of massage are discussed in nursing schools, little if any time is afforded to its practice. For that reason a book for nurses that covers quick and basic massage techniques is a positive contribution to the field. The authors' objectives are thoroughly met as any nurse should be able to follow these routines.
Audience: According to the authors, this book is written for nurses, but this book is useful for anyone providing direct care, from nurse to home healthcare providers to family caregivers. The authors have been practicing massage for over 25 years and have studied under some of the most highly regarded energy workers. Additionally, one of the authors helped to develop a holistic nursing series for a continuing education department.
Features: One of the most useful topics covered in this book is the basic massage routines which nurses can handily incorporate in their work. Other areas of interest include psychoneuroimmunology, conscious thought, and energy work. All these techniques can be learned to give the practitioner a more thorough understanding of stress and ways to alleviate it.
Assessment: Any nurses who are interested in incorporating massage in their practice and would like to learn more about energy work will benefit from this book. Its well-organized approach will give the practitioner a more clear understanding of this healing modality.
