Library JournalBond (Balancing Your Body: A Self-Help Approach to Rolfing Movement), who has a master's degree in dance from UCLA and trained as a structural integration practitioner, here argues that one's posture results from habits that have evolved along with life experiences. Not surprisingly, these habits lead to bad posture and chronic pain, both of which Bond aims to alleviate with a program for the daily renewal of posture. In Part 1, she instructs readers on becoming aware of postural habits, while in Part 2, she studies the body in relation to its core. Part 3 sees her investigating the use of the senses and how that affects one's perception of the world. Finally, in Part 4, Bond explores the body's movement. The book contains clear illustrations throughout and many exercises focusing on subtle body sensations. A good purchase for all libraries. Recommended for anyone interested in the anatomical and emotional aspects of the movement of one's body; good for all libraries.
