A very thick glossy-paged paperback packed with photos and really easy-to-understand steps on how to massage on others, yourself and babies (the baby in the baby photos is very cute!) and even pets. It covers a variety of treatments for things such as insomnia, headaches, anxiety, pain, etc. It also covers many aromatherapy treatments and how to apply them. There is also a section on Reiki at the back. Really great value.
