Description
Beautifully illustrated introductions to the most popular alternative therapies

In an accessible and attractive package, each Naturally Better title covers a single therapy, explaining its history and lore, how it works, and how and when to practice it at home. The series begins with four of the more popular alternative therapies: Aromatherapy, Acupressure, T'ai Chi, and Herbal Remedies.

Aromatherapy introduces the concept of essential oils and essences, explaining how to prepare and use them in infusions, baths, and massages. Acupressure shows how to use various massage and pressure techniques to release the chi, the essential body energy, and relieve certain illnesses and symptoms. T'ai Chi offers a brief introduction to this martial art, showing the basic movements and patterns that promote flexibility and relieve tension. Finally, Herbal Remedies introduces a wide range of medicinal herbs and demonstrates their uses and preparations.

Each book gives explicit step-by-step instructionsthrough full-color photos and illustrations. A section on specific symptoms and their treatments rounds out the package. Beautifully illustrated, innovatively packaged, and expertly written, the Naturally Better books will inform while they entertain.
