From the Back Cover:

The Educated Heart is a delightful, indispensable guide for every practitioner and student of the manual therapies. For the first time, this groundbreaking work demystifies the crucial but under-examined issue of professional boundaries-bringing both humanity and humor to the intricacies of shaping an integrity-bases practice. The Educated Heart includes: "red flags" that signal potential boundary problems, compassionate insights into everyday professional challenges, real-life examples illustrating common pitfalls and helpful strategies, step-by-step guidelines for making ethical decisions.

About the Author:

Nina McIntosh, MSW, combines twenty years as a bodyworker-first, as a massage therapist and later, as a Certified Rolfer-with her previous experience as a psychiatric social worker. She currently practices as a Rolfer and is also a Rosen Method bodywork intern.
