View all copies of this ISBN edition:

How dolphins can improve our health, enhance our psychological well-being and help us to live in harmony with the environment. A unique bond exists between man and dolphin. Since ancient times these graceful, intelligent creatures have enchanted and fascinated us. In "Dophins and Their Power to Heal", Amanda Cochrane and Karena Callen draw on years of research to present a rich and detailed study. The authors focus in particular on the current investigation into the dolphin's healing qualities. In classical literature dolphins are recorded as possessing special powers, and recent medical research supports this. There is increasing evidence to back up the claim that close contact with dolphins can enhance the learning abilities of the mentally handicapped, bring relief to the emotionally disturbed and encourage recovery from life-threatening diseases. Cochrane and Callen also explore the special relationships that female dolphins seem able to establish with pregnant women. "Dolphins and Their Power to Heal" is the first book to provide all the most up-to-date information on the research currently being conducted in an effort to fathom these animals' full potential. Experts all over the world agree with the authors that closer interaction with dolphins could be profoundly beneficial; what more charming way to enrich our lives? Amanda Cochrane, formerly Health and Beauty Editor of "Harpers & Queen", is now a freelance writer in the field of preventative health and complementary medicine. Karena Callen is Health and Beauty Director of "Elle"; her main interest lies in alternative health and natural healing.

About the Author:

Amanda Cochrane's and Karena Callen's quest to fathom and elucidate the healing power of dolphins has taken them to Africa, Bali, the Bahamas, the Florida Keys, Turks and Caicos Islands, Greece, Ireland, and Northumbria, where they have encountered pods of wild dolphins, lone friendly dolphins, and dolphins in captivity. Both authors live in London where they are active in the field of alternative healing.


"Well-written and informative--a must read for the dolphin enthusiast." (Richard O'Barry, trainer of TV's Flipper, author of Behind the Dolphin's Smile, winner, United Natio)

"If you have never explored the rich history of human-dolphin interaction and its extraordinary catalyzing, healing potential, this book provides excellent means to enter the world of these masters of the water realm. There you will learn a whole new way of being--more direct, mree harmonious, full of heart, exuding tremendous joy and vitality. But be forewarned: It may change your life forever." (Trisha Lamb Feuerstein Yoga Journal)

"Dolphins and Their Power to Heal is a very caring and comprehensive look at dolphins. It is an in-depth study of dolphins and their world and their interaction with human beings with 32 color photos which brings us closer to them. The book is also written with great concern and respect for dolphin life." (Newlife)
