Wendy represents bravery in our industry, being bold enough to step out of the comfort zone of giving merely "relaxing massages" ... to work with groups of people (and animals) that are overlooked and badly need the gifts we have been cultivating....
Her peaceful demeanor and obvious experience with creating a healing atmosphere enforced the teachings that less can be more, to ask permission, listen and receive knowledge from the tissues through the hands of the practitioner.

I've known author Wendy Hammarstrom for several years, and this book reflects her qualities and personality--courageous, helpful, loving, compassionate and caring, a massage and yoga practitioner who possesses an astonishing amount of knowledge and wisdom that she is eager to share with others.
The book is a stunning accomplishment, a tour de force that everyone who practices massage or yoga will want in their library. It is a reference book like no other, filled with description, instructions, photographs and helpful hints. Easy to read and easy to follow, Circles of Healing is without a doubt the go-to book for healing, whether the source of suffering is physical, emotional, psychological or spiritual.
Wendy's tender touch in Circles of Healing embraces not only your heart, but also your soul. It nourishes your spirit, and helps you laugh and sing again. The book is Wendy's life journey, a precious gift to everyone who has the privilege of reading it and applying its insight and exercises to their own lives.
