Goodreads:  Kay Hutchison had it all: a successful career, a beautiful home, and a loving husband. But her life changed forever one annual holiday, and it started with "I’m leaving." Going solo, Kay embarked on a unique journey of self-discovery. From colonic irrigation to cupping and reiki to reflexology, Kay found herself calling psychics, going to healers and tarot card readers, and dabbling in past-life regression, sonic therapy, silent retreats, astrology, shamanic retreats and much, much more. This book is the funny, moving and occasionally harrowing account of one woman’s search for the truth, from the sunshine of Spain to deep inside the psyche of her Scottish childhood. The result is an unusually candid exploration of both the challenges and opportunities of middle age. 

Kritters Thoughts:  As a person who hasn't tried a lot of types of therapy, but has had my eye on a few, I was intrigued to read this book and see what therapies this author tried and if any are on my list.  

The parts where she tried therapies were interesting, but mixed within them she travels back in time and tells stories of her past that led her to the therapies.  What I didn't love about these parts was they seemed to pop in at weird times and were in no way chronological, so almost made the book confusing.  

What struck me most about the book was once she started trying therapies each one almost led to the next.  With recommendations from friends and unique places, once she tried one she was organically led to the next and I hope that I can find a few therapies this way!  

This wasn't the book I was hoping for when I went into reading a book about alternative therapies, but it did inspire me to get out there and try a few.  I see a float therapy or a salt room in my future!

Rating: enjoyable, but didn't leave me wanting more
