Spas have become self-care oases for millions of people living busy, hectic lives. And while your skin may be smoother when you leave, the relaxation response sparked by a visit to the spa is an equally invaluable gift. Pleasure Healing will help you give that gift to yourself every day by bringing relaxation and present-moment awareness into your life. As you incorporate mindfulness techniques including meditation, healing breath work, conscious movement, and other pleasure-healing rituals into your daily routine, you'll notice the spa ethos transforming your mindset, calming stress, and enriching your life.
“Pleasure Healing is a joy to read. I can think of no better compliment than to say I’d like to have written it myself! Mary Beth Janssen has given those in search of a healthier, more fulfilling life a roadmap that is both inspiring and practical. Turning these pages is a spa journey in itself—a beautiful release from distraction and worry guided by an author who is intuitive and wise.”
