Format: Paperback
Take it from someone who knows; this book is exactly what any would-be practitioner of Shiatsu and accupressure needs. If your just starting out, or if you've taken years of classes on the matter as I have, Mr. Namikoshi will show you step-by-step exactly what points to hit, in what order for maximum effectiveness, and using what positioning of the body as well as the hands and fingers you are applying with. No homeopathic practitioner should be without this book; I only wish I had more stars to work with. I must emphasize that I am not acting on Mr. Namikoshi's behalf, nor do hope to see anything except more people writing reviews such as this one other than myself, for that will mean that more people have gone out and found a copy themselves. Buy this book.

I bought this book to complement my studies as I am enrolled in a 2 year Shiatsu program. The pictures are a bit dated, but the book gives excellent detail on basic points, underlying muscles and nerves, and proper posture for performing Shiatsu in ouga, fukuga and gyoga positions. Also shows how to perform treatment when client is in a seated position and on a massage table.

The book was written by the son of the founder of Shiatsu and is a nice resource for students. I highly recommend it!

I knew this book, but didn't have it anymore. It is the only good way to learn Shiatsu together with a good teacher that is. My sensei was a student of Toru Namikoshi himself and I learned a lot from him.
The book is very clear and easy to use with lots of pictures.
