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 physical complaints and bring harmony to body and mind.
