I've received for review from Amazon.com a copy of the new book The Subtle Body: An Encyclopedia of Your Energetic Anatomy, by Cyndi Dale. I find this new book to be an impressive, well-illustrated guide to energy system concepts and energy healing modalities.
It includes topics such as:
Chakras, Energy Meridians, Acupuncture, Reflexology, Reiki, Intentional Healing, Distance Healing, Ayurveda, Shiatsu, Energy Fields, Auras, Sacred Geometry, Color Healing, Sound Healing, Magnetism, Cymatics, Barbara Brennan Healing, Biofeedback, Zero-Point Field, Scalar Waves, Geopathic Stress, EMFs, Royal Rife, Nikola Tesla, Life Fields, Thought Fields, Torsion Fields, Shamans, Hans Jenny, Peter Garaiaev, Leonard Horowitz, Morphogenetic Fields, Rupert Sheldrake, Etheric Energy, Orgone Energy, Chi, Hyaluronic Acid, Kundalini, Energy Bodies, Nadis, Pranayama Breathing, Tibetan, Mayan, Kabbalistic, Tantric, Native American, Chinese, Taoist, Thai, Buddhist, Incan, Christian, Egyptian, and Indian Energy Systems, Crystals & Gemstones, Elements, EFT, Homeopathy, Massage, Diet & Nutrition, Kinesiology, Muscle Testing, Chi Gong, Radiesthesia, Acutonics, Aromatherapy, Biogeometry, Bau-biologie, Chiropractic, Feng Shui, Flower Essences, Family Constellations, Hypnotherapy, Iridology, Johrei, Matrix Energetics, Meditation, Myofascial Release, Naturopathy, NLP, Pranic Healing, Quantum Touch, Rolfing, Spiritual Healing, Tai Chi, Tui Na, Yoga, Yuen Method, and Zero Balancing.
This book has excellent illustrations related to the chakras and meridian systems and reflexology, and it is more comprehensive than any other book I've seen that explores energetic therapies and complementary healing modalities. Some topics it only mentions briefly while other topics are explored in depth. This book is a great reference work and it is very valuable in bringing to public awareness many lesser known energetic therapies and energy transformation methods. Practitioners may find this useful to expand their awareness of the many different therapies that are around, and health care consumers will get to learn about the many theories and practices that have generated a wealth of options for fostering health and well-being.
I was very impressed that this book did not avoid sharing about some of the more controversial and suppressed therapies and healing pioneers. Even if you may find a few flaws or errors in how modalities are presented, this book is remarkable for all that it includes - and thereby helps validate. The field of energetic medicine and healing continues to expand so I expect that there will be future editions of this book with more modalities and perhaps more detail in some areas. For now, it is a very well-compiled overview of energy healing and subtle energy systems and theories. There is a lot included in this nearly 500 page volume, and the book is nice to have as a resource.
