An illustrated guide to the ancient Japanese art of finger-pressure massage from a master practitioner, featuring the first full mapping of the "new" meridians.
Shiatsu, a bodywork therapy that allows the mind and body to work harmoniously, treats ailments and disorders by applying pressure to the meridians (energy channels) of the human body. In Essential Shiatsu, master practitioner Yuichi Kawada combines traditional shiatsu and its twelve principal meridians with the crucial role of the "Eight Extraordinary Meridians" as rescue and emergency forces. Kawada brings this ancient art up to date, explaining and illustrating the first full mapping of the "new" meridians, and offering instruction on how to stimulate them with hand pressure and stretching. The book also includes a comprehensive list of ailments and suggested shiatsu treatments.
