  • Jane Alexander

    The book is aimed at anyone who would like to use the technique - whether qualified therapist or complete novice, whether teacher, parent or carer. Indian Head Massage for Special Needs is a valuable resource for those wanting to provide support for people with special needs, but really I'd suggest it for anyone who is interested in therapeutic touch.
