Intentive Touch - The Cohen Method of Soft Tissue Therapy, the first book by Jeff Cohen, is an introduction to the soft tissue therapy he has developed, gleaned from his many experiences with clients collected over nearly forty years of hands on therapy. Jeff continues to work on a wide range of conditions - from every day aches and pains to the demands of world class professional dancers, musicians, business professionals, top and aspiring athletes to spinal cord injuries and strokes.
In 1978, a paralyzing automobile accident caused a spinal cord injury to his older brother, Gordon and was quickly followed by the untimely death of their father. The onus to lessen the tragedy that had befallen his family spearheaded a journey to the Philippines in search of a miracle to help Gordon relieve his suffering and at best, regain his ability to walk again.
This book is about how Jeff learned form Philippine traditional healers and how the techniques of those traditions can be uniquely blended with the most cutting edge therapies of western physical medicine. With all this knowledge and experience, he has created Intentive Touch - The Cohen Method of Soft Tissue Therapy.
This exciting and useful new work contains excellent anatomical illustrations, diagrams and photos of how the body is organized, causes of common physical ailments and four examples of the body being treated with Intentive Touch. This wonderful and user-friendly book is a beginner’s book for all who are interested in learning how to relieve some discomfort for their family and friends, and for health care professionals, The Cohen Method of Soft Tissue Therapy is a good adjunct to their existing hands-on practice.
