Happy Healing by Dominique Bourlet is a non-fiction book written for the purpose of self-healing. In the book, the author provides a multi-faceted self-healing method useful for physical, emotional and mental health issues. This method is called "Happy Healing." According to the author, this is a fascinating way to cleanse, to convert, and to recycle feelings and emotions. He recommends the strategies he discovered when he was in Asian countries with well rooted therapeutic traditions. In other words, the tips provided in this book are from the author's experience as a practitioner of Asian manual therapies and Chinese medical acupressure. In the last pages of the book, Bourlet offers a step-by-step guide on how to heal the pain.

I found the book to be an eye-opener and helpful. Unlike many other self-help books, Happy Healing contains unique, different tips that prove to be effective. I was intrigued to discover that self-talk can reduce the pain. In Bourlet's words, "rather than to try to kill Lady Pain, why not just open the door and let her go away, as peacefully as possible? Why not try to understand each other, discuss, and negotiate?"

I also enjoyed the fact that Bourlet did not only give methods to relieve pain, but rather mentioned the reasons it enters a patient's body. He also discusses how people react to pain. For example, patients under the attack of chronic pain become resilient and accept higher levels of pain without even noticing it.

Wisdom expressed in this book was intriguing. After reading the book, I now have a different view of pain. Thinking pain was the cause of many deaths, I had spent years hating it. However, this book taught me that, though unpleasant, pain is a signal that there is a health problem. In other words, pain is a friendly warning message. In the author's words: "Pain communicates information about the whole body and person."

There are even benefits of having pain. For instance, it is one of the ways to gain attention and sympathy from relatives. The author suggests that in order to get rid of pain, one should not wait for a high level of pain. The quicker you address your health issue, the easier it will be to regulate.

When reading this book, I did not detect any grammar errors. The wisdom applied in the book, and the efficient self-healing mechanisms, make it a unique material that will leave the reader craving for more. As a result, I am awarding the book 4 out of 4 stars. I recommend it to people who are going through mental, emotional and physical pain.

Lady Pain is usually an unwanted visitor, but we sometimes unwittingly invite her to live with us forever. The author gives us a lot of welcome tips; foremost of them is to change our attitude towards pain. "Pain, pain, go away. Come again ... never?"

Pain communicates information about the whole body and person.
I totally address with the author on this one. Pain mostly defines a person: inward and outward. I hope readers that may be in some kind of pain would find this healing book helpful. Thanks for the review.
Feeling upset sometimes may be unavoidable, but acting distressed is always optional.

I am so glad you found this book to be insightful and to change your perspective on pain. From reviews and my own skimming through the book, Bourlet's approach is very sound and has been shown to be effective. I hope more people pick up this book and other books like it. It seems that whatever one's approach is to chronic conditions or pain management, this book has techniques that can augment and assist. Thank you for this great review!

If I can say the most important thing I learned in this book is to change our attitude towards pain. That's one of the ways to live free of it.

As one of those people who endure a certain amount of pain, I found the tips in the book very helpful and effective. So I do believe that anyone who is willing to read the book will heal. Thanks for passing by.

This is new. Sounds like the book has a lot of gems to benefit from. This will be my next book to consider and I hope I'll enjoy like you did. Awesome review.

The idea that to get rid of pain, one should not wait for a high level of pain, actually gives me the creeps. But I get what the author is trying to convey here.

Great review!
