· When can anxiety be good?
· How can I change my pain experience?
· How does trauma change the way our brains work?
· Why can't we tickle ourselves?

This collection of science-based graphic medicine comics addresses these questions (amongst many others) and makes complex human experiences accessible, engaging and gently humorous.

Written by Steve Haines, a bodyworker and creative storyteller, and illustrated by Sophie Standing, who specializes in human sciences, these comics explore topics that make us fundamentally human - anxiety, pain, trauma, and touch:

Anxiety is Really Strange
Pain is Really Strange
Trauma is Really Strange
Touch is Really Strange

This special boxset also includes a useful and beautifully illustrated wallchart.
