Trade paperback book
In this practical guide, Nick Pole explains the philosophy and practice of Clean Language, a simple and highly effective way to facilitate mind/body communication in bodywork therapy. Clean questions help clients to get to the heart of physical problems, to engage the mind in the process of the body and to create somatic change. With compelling theoretical explanations and case studies, this will prove a transformative guide for anyone who wishes to develop their practice through language, including practitioners of yoga, shiatsu, acupuncture, physiotherapy and the Feldenkrais Method.
Praise for Words That Touch
“Nick Pole offers bodyworkers a new skill in this clear and elegant books, showing that the words we use directly affect our clients’ qi as much as our touch. With simple “Clean” questions we can help them reach into and resolve the origin of their own condition.”
