well as techniques for breathing and meditation, necessary for improving one's
ki power. There is also a step by step illustrated guide on how to practice
these techniques on oneself or on others. However, most

"As the theory goes, there are certain fixed pressure points on the body that
can be used for healing, called, tsubo. Internationally-know shiatsu master
Ryokyu Endo shows where these points are and explains the principles of ki in
this step-by-step guide." -Rafu Shimpo

"This is definitely not one of those 'Dummy' guides. It's a serious how-to

pressure, by an internationally renowned master, referred to as 'miracle hands'

Product Description
Internationally acclaimed Shiatsu master explains how to use the method he has
developed according to his new theory of pressure points and meridian lines.

Shiatsu is the Japanese art of healing using hand pressure, which is based on
the ancient Oriental medicine theory of ki, or the body's natural energy flow.

Ryokyu Endo is an internationally known master of Shiatsu, and has been dubbed
"miracle hands" for his healing abilities. He trained in traditional Oriental
medical techniques, and went on to practice what he called "Tao Shiatsu," a
technique based on Taoist principles, which he has taught at
workshops and lectures in various countries, and which he explained in Tao
Shiatsu: Life Medicine for the 21st Century (Japan Publications, 1995). He has
since made several startling discoveries that have led him to adapt his original
technique. Shiatsu is based on the theory that there are certain
points on the body that can be used for healing, called tsubo. Conventionally
tsubo are in fixed positions, Endo now believes that they are constantly moving
according to changes in a person's ki. He now believes that conventional shiatsu
builds up resistance to treatment in the body. In The New
Shiatsu Method, Endo explains the principles of ki, tsubo and meridians-the
lines along which ki energy flows-providing ki meditation and breathing
techniques, and explaining how to develop ki power. He also demonstrates how to
visualize meridians and locate tsubo, and provides a detailed, clearly
illustrated, step-by-step guide to his treatment techniques that can be
practiced by the individual on him/herself or on a partner in order to heal a
specific ailment or generally promote a sense of wellbeing.
