Live Well Live Long explores the wonderful Chinese tradition of nourishing life (yangsheng).

Its teachings can help us improve our health and lengthen our lives through cultivating our mind, emotions, diet, exercise, sleep, sexual behaviour and much more. And as this book reveals, these teachings are comprehensively backed up by the findings of modern lifestyle research.

The Brain’s Way of Healing: Remarkable Discoveries and Recoveries from the Frontiers of Neuroplasticity
For centuries it was believed that the price we paid for our brain’s complexity was that, compared with other organs, it was fixed and unregenerative—unable to recover mental abilities lost because of damage or disease. The Brain’s Way of Healing turns that belief on its head, as Doidge lucidly explains how the brain’s capacities are highly dynamic, and how its very sophistication makes possible a unique and gentle kind of healing. He describes natural, noninvasive avenues into the brain provided by the forms of energy around us—light, sound, vibration, movement—that can pass through our senses and our bodies to awaken the plastic brain’s own transformative capacities without surgery or medication and their unpleasant side effects or risks.

Rolfing Structural Integration is a transformative manual therapy. It works directly with our body’s fascia, creating more space in tight or held areas. When this space is created and rediscovered, the body is able to use its own wisdom and return to homeostasis. It is relaxed and moves more efficiently through the world. Fascia is an important connective tissue and acts like layers within layers that hold our bodies structures in place. Rolfing helps hydrate and even out these layers so that nerves, muscles and other structures can move freely and rediscover their ideal position.

Hypnosis is a powerful process of mental focus and physical relaxation that allows you to access the healing resources of your subconscious mind. Perfectly safe and gentle, it is a natural and frequent state of mind. Most of us enter into a light hypnotic state many times throughout our day when we are doing something routine, such as driving a car or when we are deeply relaxed, daydreaming or reading a book. During these activities you remain consciously aware and completely in control, just as you do when a professional helps you to enter a state of hypnosis.
