Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For the first time in the West, Chinese tui na massage techniques are brought together in an easy-to-use method for whole-body health"

The Handbook of Chinese Massage integrates classic Tui Na (meaning push and grasp) techniques used in the Orient for centuries into a revolutionary method for health and well-being. Traditional Chinese massage practitioners use specific individual techniques to treat a wide variety of ailments--techniques demonstrated in this book. But after years of study in China, Indonesia, and Thailand, Maria Mercati has taken these separate techniques and combined them into a whole-body treatment never before seen in East or West. Tui Na massage stimulates the flow of qi, vital energy, in healthy individuals as well as sick ones. It requires no special equipment and is simple enough to do at home or in a chair at work.

The Handbook of Chinese Massage includes step-by-step instructions for each of the fifteen unique tui na techniques, many of which are unfamiliar to Western massage practitioners."

More than 100 color photographs and diagrams clearly show where to place your hands on the body and where to find the key meridians."

Synopsis:

Britain's leading authority on Oriental massage integrates classic "tui na" techniques into a new, whole-body treatment never before seen in East or West.
