Summary

An integration of the traditional energetic concepts and techniques of shiatsu with Western osteopathic and therapeutic massage. In this book, an expert in the Asian art of finger-pressure massage shifts the practice of shiatsu from the floor to the massage table-increasing the comfort of the patient, conserving the energy of the therapist, and augmenting the effects of treatment. Skillfully integrating current Western scientific research with traditional energetic concepts and techniques of shiatsu, Carl Dubitsky provides a new perspective on this ancient healing art. His analysis of the muscular anatomy of the points and pathways makes shiatsu techniques more accessible to health professionals and bodyworkers of all schools.
