Mike Macy, CST, LMT shares benefits of manual therapy in ‘BodyWise’

News Image

For three decades, Mike Macy, CST, LMT was one of Alaska’s most highly-trained CranioSacral Therapy and Visceral Manipulation practitioners. To help his patients eliminate chronic pain and illness, he had to teach them about their body’s mechanical needs and the body-mind connection. He has done this in person, on his website (http://www.healingjourneysbend.com), in public talks and in a column for Alaska Wellness magazine. To reach a wider audience, Macy has written, “BodyWise: How Manual Therapy Helps Us Recover from Illness & Injuries & Stay Healthy, without Drugs or Surgery” (published by Balboa Press).

“BodyWise” is the first book for the general public that explains the body's mechanical needs and the value — indeed necessity — of addressing them. ”BodyWise” is also the first book that explains how the body-mind connection actually works (the brain automatically parks emotional overloads in our tissues without our awareness, resulting in mechanical restrictions). Stories from three decades of clinical practice and the author’s own healing reveal the gentle techniques CranioSacral Therapists and Visceral Manipulation practitioners use to release these restrictions from even our most critical organs to aid in healing.

Over the past 50 years, manual therapy has exploded as a health science. With over 150,000 trained practitioners worldwide, it has become an increasingly accepted and effective option for treating pain, injuries and illnesses, including many that have not responded to medical approaches. While not a substitute for medical care when that is needed, CranioSacral Therapy and Visceral Manipulation, the two specialties featured in “BodyWise,” complement standard medical care, rarely involve unwanted side effects and treat the whole person, usually leaving them healthier and happier than before.
