About the Book

BodyWise explains the body’s needs and how it actually works. You’ll learn about subtle tissue motions, the connective tissue that enables them, the basic principles of osteopathic medicine, the latest advances in the exploding science of manual therapy, and how to work with the immune system, the mind-body connection, and neuroplasticity. Using examples from three decades of clinical practice, the author connects all this together so that readers understand how to harness their body’s healing potential rather than undercut it. Written in terms any adult interested in their health can understand, BodyWise shows that much of what we assume is an inevitable product of aging is both preventable and reversible, often without drugs or surgery.

About the Author

Mike Macy, CST, LMT has been interested in healing since he was 12 when he was sent to Cape Cod to help an inconsolable cousin. Within the week, she was smiling again. A car accident in 1987 drove him to acupressure and therapeutic bodywork. For 25 years, Mike was one of Alaska’s most highly-trained CranioSacral and Visceral Manipulation practitioners and has been a Teaching Assistant for Upledger Cranial classes since 1996. At the United States Air Force hospital in Anchorage, he helped many pain patients who’d just about lost hope return to active duty. Mike has a Masters in English, taught writing at the University of Alaska, and wrote a health column for five years. This is how he manages to explain the body and its workings with clarity and economy. BodyWise is his second published book.
