Pranotherapy  is the first volume in a series about pioneers of manual therapy. Modern therapy owes a great debt to these early pioneers and as you read through this and subsequent volumes you realise that in many ways they were ahead of their time with their influence on diet and nutrition but also that modern medical practices have moved away from therapeutic manipulation of the physical body and what a loss that represents.



Phil Young has drawn the threads of this development together with the inclusion of the previously unpublished notebooks of another such pioneer, Dr Randolph Stone, a contemporary of Varma who, like Stanley Lief the founder of modern European Neuromuscular Technique, was influenced by Varma's work. Stone was the founder of his own system of manual therapy, which he called Polarity Therapy, and although it is similar to Varma's work, it has maintained to this day more of the original vitalistic, energy approach.
