a complete guide

written fluidly with the understanding and true intent of shiatsu. explains underlying principles well, and then takes the reader to the deeper understanding of meridians, points, and diagnosis. describes the energies of the meridians and points, telling what stimulation or sedation of them does for the patient/client. excellent pictures showing how to properly stretch meridians and press points for the desired effects. shows much more than the typical "point and press" methods of other systems of shiatsu. the techniques have a similarity to thai massage and breema. after giving a basic understanding of how to give a shiatsu treatment on the surface level, chris jarmey then takes the reader into the more esoteric and deeper aspects of shiatsu, to its core understanding where true healing takes place. i find this book so helpful in that it presents both the mechanics and the more spiritual aspects of shaitsu, and does not speak only to one or the other, but both equally.

Incredibly clear, well written and well illustrated

This book is the clearest and most inspiring book on Shiatsu that I have read; and I have read lots of books on the subject. As a practitioner, it has helped me enormously.
