Many of us hold on to old fears, traumas and stresses and allow them to define and frame our lives. This book shows how to relieve these problems and help you look and feel better on a profound level. Based on the idea that the body is composed of twenty-one important hinges, Meet Your Body shows how we can 'oil' and free these hinges, stretching the body out so we can feel healthy and happy more of the time. Noah's therapeutic work is influenced by his background in Rolfing, a hands-on manipulation of the body's connective tissue designed to enhance posture and freedom of movement. From this theory of structural integration, Karrasch has developed a focus on the inseparable connection between our minds and our bodies, our bodymindcore. Guiding the reader through the various hinges of the body, from the big toe to the hip to the head, the author shows how learning to isolate and stretch these hinges in new ways can lead to a happy bodymindcore, making a great difference to overall health and wellbeing.
Each chapter addresses a particular hinge physically as well as sharing ideas about its emotional component, and includes photographs and drawings illustrating a variety of bodymindcore techniques. This book offers people with both ordinary and extraordinary body challenges new ideas for how they can make changes in the way their bodies work for them. A practical guide to releasing bodymindcore trauma, Meet Your Body challenges us all to get in touch with and listen to our bodies to improve our health and overall happiness.
Noah Karrasch is a certified Rolfer and licensed massage therapist, and holds a teaching degree from the University of Missouri, Columbia. He teaches core bodywork skills throughout the midwest and also works with the Wren Clinic in East London. Noah lives and works in Springfield, Missouri.

This book is accessible to all those with an interest in finding out more about the physical body and how it can be helped through enhanced posture and freedom of movement. -- Seed Institute Newsletter I would hugely recommend this book and know that I will return to it again and again over time. I have used some of the exercises and definitely feel the benefit. If you are interested in your own health or are a therapist looking for new exercises to use with your clients, this book will definetely give you inspiration. -- Tracy Footitt's Shiatsu Blog This book gives an interesting understanding of the structure of the human body for a qigong practitioner. He takes the holistic view that we need to work with all our hinges, not just the ones that are giving us a problem... I think that bodyworkers such as Rolfers and cranio-sacral therapists have a lot of insights to offer the qigong world. -- Ken Morgan, Medical Qigong Education Centre 'A gem in the field of Structural Integration. All body workers with allegiance to Dr. Rolf should have a copy of this book. Here is the best attempt, so far, to describe how to "talk" to a Structurally integrated body, hinge by hinge. I've seen no better source for body meditation and awakening the integrated body. Noah writes with special intimate knowledge of his material." -- GSI Newsletter
