Mudras: Ancient Gestures to Ease Modern Stress guides you through simple hand gestures known to relieve stressful feelings. These gestures are timeless: when you wave good-bye, when you place your hands over your heart upon hearing bad news, when you shake out your hands after a tense encounter-you are using mudras. Now you can harness the power in hand gestures deliberately. This book teaches you the how and why of these ancient gestures. Easy to learn, easy to use anywhere, any time, mudras are an effective, no-cost addition to the ways you already take care of yourself and those you love.
Emily Fuller Williams has practiced massage therapy since the 1980s with an emphasis on its emotional benefits. She began incorporating mudras into her work several years ago. Ms. Williams is a sought-after massage and mudras instructor at conferences and trainings. She and her husband and two sons live in Cleveland, Ohio.
