Body Intelligence offers a new understanding of how the body works and leads the reader to a greater sense of wellbeing and an enriched sense of self.

The anatomy of the body is explored without the complexity of medical terminology. Instead, common descriptions are used along with a multitude of images, allowing the reader to visualise and work with different levels of the body. Experiential exercises, guided meditations and movements are provided throughout the book, helping the reader to develop improved levels of health and body intelligence that are natural and accessible all the time. As body intelligence increases through these exercises, physical changes occur and a new posture emerges, followed by positive mental and emotional shifts. The reader will begin to feel differently, move differently and think differently.

This book will benefit everyone. People experiencing depression, fatigue, emotional issues, stress and anxiety and in fact any condition associated with living in a human body have the potential to be relieved of their symptoms with practice using this book as guidance.

Ged gives us the tools to establish an ongoing conscious communication with our body's innate wisdom; our body then expands on that information, the potential body awareness is unlimited and yet exceptionally simple. As a Remedial Massage Therapist I found this book very exciting, benefiting from a number of 'aha' moments regarding problematic clients. I also used a number of the meditations in conjunction with client sessions, achieving a deeper understanding for the client about their body and themselves. I learnt a lot from this book and would strongly recommend it to Massage Therapists as an enhancement to their practice and also to Massage Students as a companion to traditional Anatomy and Physiology teaching.
