It contains numerous illustrations, color photographs, step-by-step instructions, anatomical graphics, and an approach to massaging deep- level tissues from the myofascial chain point of view.

Available in paperback for $26.95 at Recycled Yoga Mats by Yoga Design Lab This collection of bold and colorful luxury yoga mats is made from natural tree rubber and recycled plastic bottle microfibers. "The goal was to create a beautiful, highly functional product with the smallest eco footprint possible," says founder and designer Chad Turner. "Countless yoga mats end up in landfills because they're made from nonrecyclable, hazardous materials. While our overall goal is to limit plastics usage, at least we can start repurposing what's already out there and keep it from our oceans." Available for $54–$68 each at Clinical Assessment for Massage Therapy: A Practical Guide This comprehensive and practical guide to massage therapy brings together a range of examination and assessment techniques. It is written by massage therapist David Zulak specifically for massage therapists. The 584-page text is presented in two sections: the first explains essentials of assessment, describing the different approaches to assessment and examination; the second is divided into chapters, each dedicated to an area of the body, offering guidance on how and when to use individual assessment techniques for each area. Available for $65 at Peaceful Being A perfect backdrop for yoga or meditation, this debut album by Richard Noll features his compositions brought to life using both tenor and alto recorders. "I concentrated on using the recorder on this album since many of the pieces were composed on that instrument," says Noll, "and I generally play them in the style of a native or indigenous wooden flute." Inspired by nature, the album contains eight tracks of "calm and spacious music." Available as a download for $9.49 or a CD for $13.99 at
