Positive Health PH Online Issue 246, made up of an apparently eclectic mix of editorial features demonstrates, on further reflection, how unified is Body / Mind / Spirit. 7 Reflections on Art and Touch by bodyworker and musician David Lauterstein, with mentions of including Joe Williams, Gustav Mahler, Martin Buber, Williams Blake and Benjamin Franklin, quintessentially merges the realms of music and touch “our instruments, these miraculous hands, and the ultimate wild medium, this living, naturally self-transcending human who is our client - this is the struggle that makes us therapists grimace and delight.”
