    The micromassager is a bone ball attached to a bone or wooden handle by a steel shaft.
    
    Traditionally, these instruments were made out of ivory. Hardly appropriate these days, of course. These current instruments are beautifully handcrafted from sustainable, sterilised New Zealand beef bone and native hardwood, and the bone balls have similar properties to ivory in therapeutic application. The construction is deceptively simple in that the results obtained are beyond the scope of ordinary acupressure. These traditional type instruments are in fact rather ingenious.

    In this Tang Classic text from the 9th Century, Daoist practitioner Shi Jianwu describes how through adapting our own breathing to the breath of the universe and daily meditation, one can develop an astral body and 'transcend earthly matters to walk in the divine'. Richard Bertschinger offers the first annotated English language translation of this text with practical guidance for Qigong, meditative practice and personal development. 
    
    With elements of Daoist tradition and drawing on Mayahana Buddhist influences, this ancient guide aims to bring to the fore perceptions and focus on a natural form of breathing for pure meditation. Much of this Chinese practice has been misunderstood and lost over the years, until now. Richard's thoughtful translation and additional comments serve to distribute Shi Jianwu's original message with open interpretations for the individual reader.

    Lacey Benoit is in need of a fresh start. Her best friend, Dr. Zoe Millis, has been begging her to make the move from Maine to California.  Taking a leap of faith, Lacey does just that. 
    Living in San Diego definitely has its perks, such as, sunshine and beaches.  The best part of moving to the west coast, however, is that Steven is still on the east coast.  Catching your almost husband having sex with one of your bridesmaids on your wedding day would make even the strongest woman jaded.  Therefore, Lacey has sworn off men for a while, especially men who travel a lot that have easy access to loose women. 
    When Lacey meets the new enforcer for the San Diego Scorpions, she thinks she might be in trouble.  But she is determined to fight her attraction to the sexy NHL hunk.  And she is successful ... for about a day.
