Description

Secrets of Shiatsu is the ultimate beginner's guide to shiatsu, explaining the history and principles of the therapy, along with an illustrated step-by-step routine, and easy to follow self-treatment remedies.

  • Preparing physically and mentally to give shiatsu
  • Basic shiatsu techniques and terminology
  • An extensive shiatsu routine
  • Shiatsu treatments to try on yourself
Derived from an Eastern healing tradition dating back nearly 2000 years, shiatsu, meaning “finger pressure”, is a relatively modern therapy that is gaining popularity in the West. It involves improving energy flow by applying pressure to stretching, or manipulating specific parts of the body. This book explains shiatsu terminology, describes the therapeutic value of the practice, and gives step-by-step instruction on how to perform shiatsu on yourself and others. Master these complex, often subtle techniques to help treat ailments such as anxiety, insomnia and back pain, and bring harmony to body and mind.
