I would hugely recommend this book and know that I will return to it again and again over time. I have used some of the exercises and definitely feel the benefit. If you are interested in your own health or are a therapist looking for new exercises to use with your clients, this book will definetely give you inspiration. -- Tracy Footitt's Shiatsu Blog
This book gives an interesting understanding of the structure of the human body for a qigong practitioner. He takes the holistic view that we need to work with all our hinges, not just the ones that are giving us a problem... I think that bodyworkers such as cranio-sacral therapists have a lot of insights to offer the qigong world. -- Ken Morgan, Medical Qigong Education Centre
A gem in the field of Structural Integration. All body workers should have a copy of this book. Here is the best attempt, so far, to describe how to "talk" to a Structurally integrated body, hinge by hinge. I've seen no better source for body meditation and awakening the integrated body. Noah writes with special intimate knowledge of his material." -- GSI Newsletter
