Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This unique book will familiarize healing practitioners and martial artists with basic concepts of the human body, as defined by both Western and Eastern medical traditions, allowing those engaged in healing and martial arts to develop a more complete, holistic, and scientifically forward-looking understanding of the body. Overviews of philosophical and conceptual underpinnings are followed by detailed drawings and diagrams of the body's internal systems, as seen by both traditions. Written in a clear and concise style, this beautiful and informative book presents information previously unavailable in any single text, making it an essential work for students, healing professionals, and martial artists. This lavishly illustrated book includes:

   • Over 147 color drawings and 54 duotone photographs

   • An easy-to-understand overview of Western anatomical concepts

   • A detailed overview of Eastern medical principles, including information previously available only in specialized, costly medical texts

   • A comprehensive listing of Oriental pressure points and meridians in English, Chinese, Japanese, and Korean, cross-referenced to nerves, blood vessels, and other anatomical landmarks

   • Twenty essential self-massage and revival techniques

   • Detailed principles of pressure point fighting, as used in traditional Asian martial arts

Book News Annotation:

Color and b&w photographs and 133 line drawings highlight this resource designed to familiarize readers with human anatomy as defined by both Western and Eastern traditions. Particular focus is placed on pressure points for healing and fighting, including a cross-reference to nerves, blood vessels and arteries, and other anatomical landmarks. Tedeschi is a fifth degree blackbelt in Hapkido, a martial art that combines both healing and combative techniques.
