Holistic Spine Books

In 2018 and 2019 I self published Holistic Spine Books One and Two. Due to the many constraints of self publishing regarding page and font sizes that existed then, I have decided to rewrite the two books and combine them as one spiral bound, large format workbook that will improve the reader experience. This should take me over the winter of 2019/20 and it should be published in March 2020. Please note that the original books will still be available.

As of 24 January 2020, the Combined book is available as a Kindle ebook from Amazon OR from me as a pdf only! The price is currently £5.99 for the pdf. From the end of February, the large format paperback will be available (approximate cost of £16). Full details will be available here from that time. Please note that this will be a limited edition of 250 copies. Each one sold will be signed and numbered.

 The Chakra Energy System – Heart, Crown and Off Body Therapies

Date: 18-19 April 2020  0930-1700 both days

Venue: Physiotherapy Department, Bath Hospital

Cost: £195 to include refreshments and hand outs. Lunch is available within the hospital

This experiential workshop is the fourth to be held in the physiotherapy department at Bath Hospital over the past 18 months on the topic of clinical acupressure, reflexology and healing with the chakra energy system. This workshop will deal with the Heart chakra and the many facets of the Crown chakra. It will also discuss intuitive analysis, massage of the etheric body in congested regions – especially stiff joints, analysis and treatment of chronic conditions using the etheric and emotional bodies, treatment of physical and emotional conditions using the Crown chakra(s).

This ‘stand alone’ workshop will not be everyone’s ‘cup of tea’ in that it will teach esoteric practices which, to some, will be out with their comfort zone. It does, though, represent a wonderful form of non contact healing that can be easily learnt and put into practice when conditions dictate its use. Please come with an open mind and positive heart.

Welcome to my web site www.johncrosspublications. You may have joined this site from the previous site of As I have now retired from clinical work, I thought that ‘john cross clinics‘ was no longer applicable. On this web site you will find that purchasing my publications, posters and pdf’s will be much easier than the old site. In April 2016 I added another publication ‘Distance Analysis and Healing – My Way!’. This is a booklet of approximately 13,000 words and is available through Amazon, Amazon Kindle and directly from me as a hard copy or pdf download. I have also completely revamped the Kindle production of 2014 ‘Acupressure and Homoeopathy in the Treatment of Common Ailments’ that is now also available as a paperback.

In Summer 2017 I self published BOOK ONE of ‘The Holistic SpineReflections and Associations – Acupressure and Reflexology in Action’. The poster ‘The Holistic Spine – Reflections and Associations’ was reprinted to accompany the book. BOOK TWO was published in October 2018.  I am still happy to answer your queries about problem patients etc. These will be dealt with in the strictest confidence – replies will be sent to the instigator and will not be published.
