The art of Shiatsu - also called acupressure massage - is an Eastern technique of healing and relaxation that has been successfully used for centuries. In Japanese, the word "Shi" means finger and "atsu" means pressure. Based upon the idea that channels of energy flow through the body, Shiatsu was developed to keep these channels flowing freely to maintain maximum health. Patrick McCarty's book, A beginner's Guide to Acupressure (Shiatsu Technique), is a concise guide to the basics of Shiatsu. McCarty clearly explains what Shiatsu is, how it came about, why it is used, and how it is used. Using easy-to-follow illustrations, the author shows you how to relieve headaches, back pain, stress and other common ailments. In addition, he provides a simple system of diagnosing possible organ problems, and offers nutritional guidelines based upon the macrobiotic diet. When done properly, Shiatsu is a safe and effective means of easing pain. It can also create a feeling of well-being, vitality, and relaxation. It requires no special equipment, and it can be done anywhere, at any time. Let A Beginner's Guide to Acupressure (Shiatsu Technique) introduce you to this time-honoured practice.
