Beautiful book packed with pictures of lush Asian spas. Soothing just to look at the colorful scenery and treatments. Contains recipes and directions for body treatments, hair conditioners, special mixtures for the face, and a short chapter on spa cuisines. Some of the components for the rubs and facials would have to be purchased in a specialty store, others are found at any grocery store. A great book for a little personal pampering and relaxation.
