Review Text

This is a beautifully presented, full-colour, glossy book packed full of information to help readers feel good about life and themselves. Aimed at rejuvenating the body inside and out, it has chapters covering healthy eating, detoxifying the body, face and hair, pampering your body, posture and exercise, rest and relaxation, therapies and treatments. The book is easy to read with clear guidance notes and is illustrated throughout with beautiful colour photographs. Encouraging the reader to take time out from the daily stresses of modern living, this is a comprehensive guide to boosting general wellbeing and promoting self-confidence. A little goes a long way, and there is plenty of advice here of ways to reduce stress and invigorate emotional and physical wellbeing. Good health on the inside has the added bonus of shining through on the outside, in the form of an improved complexion, glossy hair, better posture and a toned figure. The book discusses the benefits of spending time on yourself - not only personally but also in improved relationships with others. Many of the sections contain questionnaires, with a scoring system to identify areas for improvement. The chapter on food provides a concise guide to eating a balanced diet, details of the top foods for health, a guide to herbal teas, a seven-day menu planner and some delicious-looking healthy recipes! The weekend home health spa will inspire readers to take time out and enjoy a weekend of pampering and relaxation. There is a clear schedule of treatments to maximise the effectiveness of the spa. Other sections are equally informative, covering facial massage, tips for top hair, skin brushing, hydrotherapy, hand and foot care, posture, shaping and toning exercises, breathing, yoga, healing with herbs, and much more. This is a bold and attractive book that promotes the benefits of investing time on our physical and mental wellbeing. The sleek and beautiful presentation makes it an ideal gift.
