The Complete Book of Shiatsu Therapy
Health and Vitality at Your Fingertips
By Toru Namikoshi. 7" x 10", 256 pages, paperback. In this compact, exhaustive, scientifically oriented text and guidebook, Namikoshi for once and all discredits erroneous interpretations that confuse shiatsu therapy with traditional Japanese amma massage or categorize it as limited within the framework of ancient oriental medical thought and unrelated to modern medical science. By proving that shiatsu rests firmly on a medical scientific basis and on thorough physiological and somatological understanding, he sets it completely apart from the many superficial health regimens.
