As Mantak said his massage practice differs from most other practices in that his include techniques that involve direct massage of internal organs, especially those inside the abdomen. That actually increases the risk factor of this practice if studied without the benefit of a qualified teacher. Moreover, since this practice uses diagnosis techniques like those used by Chinese medical practitioner, but with massage as the only tool, it will be less comprehensive as an other-healing practice when compared with ordinary conventional Chinese medical practice in which herbal, meridian massage (tui na) and sometimes acupuncture etc. will be used. Having said that, Mantak's practice can certainly add value to other massage professionals who like to venture into direct organ massage techniques. But for self-learners who just want to have some massage techniques for general well-being or to complement his chi-kung or tai-chi practice, a book on the more common form of Chinese massage, tui na, might be saver and easier to practice.
As with other books of Mantak, there are always bonus-materials that can serve to promote other books (or practices) of his Universal Tao system. In this book there is a whole section on chi-generation techniques that aims at helping a CNT practitioner to do his/her healing tasks. These are all interesting and useful techniques.
It starts out with a lot of teachings on personal cultivation - for the practitioner. That is valuable because you must be able to see/perceive.
This is a substantial course. (I now need bodies to practice on.)
