A fascinating guide to self-awareness and living well through the Oriental technique of shiatsu. Filled with diagrams, drawings, and sample diagnoses, this is not only a practical guidebook, but also a fascinating meditation on how to live.
The goal of Oriental diagnosis is to find unity of body, mind, and spirit. Ohashi shows how both physical and spiritual condition can be revealed in posture, features, and even the texture of skin.
