Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"I recommend Your Healing Hands to all those who would heal."
-Kry H. Breyer, Massage Magazine

"Your Healing Hands offers an excellent introduction to the practice of Polarity therapy. Well written and clearly illustrated, this book provides a practical, hands-on approach to therapeutic touch and natural healing. I highly recommend Richard Gordon’s book for both beginners and experienced practitioners of massage, bodywork and the natural healing arts."
- Bruce Burger, President, Heartwood: California College of the Natural Healing Arts

"Richard Gordon has done a good task in expressing the principals of Polarity Therapy as taught by Dr. Stone and myself. He reinforces the 'feeling' more than the intellect for those who want to practice Polarity."
-Pierre Pannetier, Polarity Therapy Center
