Description

MaryBetts Sinclair has been a massage therapist and teacher since 1975 . She has also written three previous books and over 40 articles for bodyworkers, holistic doctors and parents. She combines her decades of hands-on experience with a background both as an Emergency Medical Technician and as a researcher. MaryBetts is interested in scientific research related to bodywork and other natural healing modalities; she believes massage therapists can combine a knowledge of hardheaded science with intuition and heartfelt compassion. She feels passionate about hydrotherapy techniques as a fantastic complement to bodywork: by working with the body's natural self-healing mechanisms they can greatly deepen the effectiveness of bodywork. Her books blend thousands of hours of meticulous research with the wisdom of a long-term massage practitioner who has taught and practised massage in many different countries and environments.
