Description: "A splendid history of mind-body medicine...a book that desperately needed to be written."--Jerome Groopman,New York Times Is stress a deadly disease on the rise in modern society? Can mind-body practices from the East help us become well? When it comes to healing, we believe we must look beyond doctors and drugs; we must look within ourselves. Faith, relationships, and attitude matter. But why do we believe such things? From psychoanalysis to the placebo effect to meditation, this vibrant cultural history describes mind-body healing as rooted in a patchwork of stories, allowing us to make new sense of our suffering and to rationalize new treatments and lifestyles. 36 illustrations . "This brilliant study...concludes that 'mind-body medicine is a deeply storied world.'"--Barbara Fisher,Boston Globe "Harrington...has expertly mapped the transmission of mind-body ideas...showing us where they come from and why exactly they seem to have nine lives."--Amanda Schaffer,Slate
