A Reader Review
Outstanding Instruction for any level, August 10, 2000
Reviewer: vbrasco (see more about me at Amazon.com ) from Honolulu, HI USA
Hi, this book is wonderful! Written with the intent of combining the educational text book information but including pictures, diagrams and language that would enable one with no formal experience learn some shiatsu massage skills. I am working towards my massage therapy license and this book is a gem. I unfortunately bought this book from a store a and am kicking my-self for not going through Amazon.com, because I would have saved money. Oh well live and learn...

Reader Reviews
Comprehensive yet delightfully comprehensible, March 22, 2001
Reviewer: Caroline Bertorelli (see more about me at Amazon.com ) from Tokyo Japan
Elaine Liechti has done a wonderful job of sharing her passion and knowledge of shiatsu. This book is a complete, concise, yet easy-to-understand introduction to shiatsu; what it is, the history, the different schools of shiatsu, the basic principles, and how to do it. The book is well structured and has lots of diagrams, photos and illustrations to capture your interest. This book is certainly the most comprehensive and comprehensible book on shiatsu I have seen. Apart from one dismissive comment on acupuncture, I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in shiatsu.

Excellent beginners manual., February 2, 1999
Reviewer: A reader from Herndon, Va.
Well written, interesting lay out, packed with facts on the migration of Chinese methods to Japan and the evolution of current methods. Photography is beautiful. Text is easy to read and understand. Hand in hand they show clearly: how it works, why it works and how to do it. A must for anyone considering learning this form of massage therapy for themselves and others.

A Reader Review
The Bible of shiatsu and accupressure. Buy this book., March 9, 1999
Reviewer: Togane Maegamichi (MMark340@hotmail.com) from Philadelphia, USA
Take it from someone who knows; this book is exactly what any would-be practitioner of Shiatsu and accupressure needs. If your just starting out, or if you've taken years of classes on the matter as I have, Mr. Namikoshi will show you step-by-step exactly what points to hit, in what order for maximum effectiveness, and using what positioning of the body as well as the hands and fingers you are applying with. No homeopathic practitioner should be without this book; I only wish I had more stars to work with. I must emphasize that I am not acting on Mr. Namikoshi's behalf, nor do hope to see anything except more people writing reviews such as this one other than myself, for that will mean that more people have gone out and found a copy themselves. Buy this book.

A Reader Review
Excellent, for the practitioner, June 23, 1999
This is not really a "how to" book, but more of a philosophic treatise (with a decent amount of the "how to"). More of an experience than a lesson. It provokes thought as well as practice. This will open your mind and practice.

Synopsis
Shiatsu literally means "finger pressure" and is a traditional Japanese massage technique which can rebalance the body and ease both mental and physical tension by applying pressure to the body's energy channels, or meridians. Covering the spiritual as well as the practical, this guide includes the concept of Ki or Chi energy, the essential building blocks of Shiatsu in practice, how different parts of the body can be used to transmit energy, and how Shiatsu complements traditional Chinese medicine.
