From the Publisher

A warm and wise self-portrait of the woman who originated the therapy that bears her name. Here, Ida Rolf tells about her life, about the wonder of the human body, about life in general, and about Rolfing in particular, explaining her technique of manipulating muscle tissue to allow the body to come into its correct alignment.

Get Healthy, Get Wealthy

WHEN YOU THINK ABOUT MONEY, HOW WELL YOU SLEPT last night or how often you get to the gym may not be top of mind. Think again. A wealth of research points to a rich connection between your health and your finances. Some of it is obvious: When you smoke you can burn through thousands a year on cigarettes. If you struggle with your weight, you’re more likely to have the kinds of chronic conditions—high blood pressure and diabetes, say—that lead to higher long-term medical bills, leaving you with less to save for retirement. Other connections may be more surprising. A full night’s sleep has been
