This blog post is a Book Review of the title, Journey of Healing, by Dr Kathy Gruver and reviewed by Guest Blogger and Published Author Nicole Delacroix http://nicole-delacroix.com/
‘A Journey Of Healing’ is mutually a thoughtful and inspiring book introducing practical application of alternative healing methods to both experienced and novice students of massage therapies. Dr. Gruver shares not only her methodology, but personal anecdotes and life experiences which helps put the journey into perspective for the reader.
A primary example of how to write about alternative medicine, the author offers a keen insight paired with an open, honest telling of her own journey that covers each topic with care and detail. She never offers a set solution, but rather offers the reader options and allows the reader to choose for them self. The primary goal of the piece is to show the everyday man and woman how these forms of healing can not only benefit their lives, but enhance it. In addition, the author’s own story gives a balance to the technical aspects and lends a warmth and dimension to the book.
Dr. Gruver’s writing is equally personal and technical but easily connects with readers. The reader experiences themes of humor, inspiration, emotion and the author’s optimism in this outstanding entry to the field of self-help. If I were to offer any thoughts or critiques it would be the following: a more in-depth review of how to identify a great massage therapist; additional or more detail examples of self-healing techniques for the reader to experience on their own; and more personal anecdotes – Dr. Gruver is such a fascinating person, reading her stories is like hearing from a long lost friend.
Overall, I enjoyed this book immensely and would highly recommend it not only to individuals seeking alternative healing techniques but readers of all walks of life. The author’s kind and true voice is entertaining and wise and transcends topic. A must read, I give this 4.8 of 5 stars.
