The Book of Shiatsu

Vitality & Health Through the Art of Touch

The Book of Shiatsu

With shiatsu (a Japanese word meaning "finger pressure") you can release and stimulate the energy flowing through your body -- using just your hands and fingers -- to awaken your body's natural healing modalities. The Book of Shiatsu is the authoritative, step-by-step guide to this uniquely effective therapy. The techniques offered are simple and can be used to treat a variety of health problems, particularly:

• Arthritic conditions

• Backaches

• Emotional stress

• Headaches and migraines

• Intestinal disorders

• Menstrual and reproductive problems

• Muscular pain and tension

Here you'll find more than 240 color drawings and photographs in a brand-new, accessible format, demonstrating how to give both whole-body and specialized massages, diagnose specific conditions, and work with the body's energy meridians to promote sustained health and well-being.
