For the first time in decades, a major figure in Oriental medicine is offering a book redefining the meridian system upon which the field is based. Author Tetsuro Saito is one of few international figures in shiatsu therapy with schools in Europe and North America. "Shin So Shiatsu: Healing the Deeper Meridian Systems" -- a rich compendium of 40,000 words, 300 figures and charts, and 130 black-and-white photographs -- is presented in two parts. The first book details the history, theory, principles, and techniques of Shin So Shiatsu. The second, a handy "Practitioner's Reference Manual," is intended for use in the treatment room. "Shin So Shiatsu" is for shiatsu therapists, acupuncturists, acupressurists, and practitioners of other energy-based approaches. Anyone who engages with Oriental medicine or is interested in the human energy system will want to read this major revision to a centuries-old approach. Its theoretical and practical uses will make it an essential textbook for schools and workshops. Highly regarded as the "father of shiatsu" in Canada, where he is now based, Saito introduced Canadians to the Japanese art of "finger pressure" in 1971, just as the West was discovering acupuncture. For the past 40 years, Saito has treated thousands of patients, trained hundreds of therapists worldwide, and pursued his own research on energy-based healing with a rare diligence. "Shin So Shiatsu: Healing the Deeper Meridian Systems" represents this lifetime of work. Saito picked up where his mentor, renowned meridian-therapy pioneer Shizuto Masunaga left off when he died in 1981. Until now, Masunaga's "Zen Shiatsu" (Japan Publications Inc, 1977) has been unsurpassed as the primary guide for beginning students and experienced practitioners alike. "Shin So ("deeper level") Shiatsu" is a long-awaited step forward, and promises to reach a far broader audience of healing artists. Saito links the most ancient and forgotten tendrils of Chinese meridian theory with Masunaga's insights, his own remarkable findings, and the invaluable research being undertaken by other contemporary Oriental medical pioneers. Born in Japan and trained there -- first as an engineer and then a shiatsu therapist -- Saito merges the frontiers of science and healing arts to take our view of the human energy matrix far beyond the familiar Traditional Chinese Medicine meridian chart. His alternative is a far more complex, yet comprehensible view of the human body at work. A natural teacher, he illustrates with striking clarity how our road map of the Regular Meridian system has been abridged over time for simplicity's sake. He presents in painstaking detail the complete view of the Regular Meridians as they manifest at three levels of imbalance. He then fully details each of the lesser known, but equally important, Extra, Divergent, Ocean, and Cosmic energy systems, and explains how they interrelate with each other. He grounds us in this theory, then tells us exactly what to do with it. This is the crux of his work: "Shin So Shiatsu" enables any ordinary practitioner to "sense" and precisely trace the multitude of meridian pathways in the human body, to identify the levels at which energy imbalances occur, and to treat those imbalances -- with astonishing results. Practitioners of meridian-based therapies will instantly recognize the veracity and sincerity of this master's approach. "Shin So Shiatsu" is not a beginner's guide: Saito asks his readers to have a basic working knowledge of shiatsu or other meridian-based modalities. But with even a minimum of experience, practitioners from a diversity of backgrounds will quickly be able to integrate the key elements of "Shin So Shiatsu" into their own work.

In the 70’s Shizuto Masunaga Sensei, creator of Keiraku shiatsu (meridian shiatsu), delivered four-week correspondence courses providing students with his own purpose-written material. We saw these course books during a visit to the Iokai Shiatsu Centre in Tokyo and given their valuable content decided to translate and publish them. Other than their historical interest, we believe the four volumes (this is the second) will be extremely helpful to shiatsu students, practitioners and teachers alike. The extensive topics covered in the four manuals range from the history of shiatsu, the Japanese legislature on the subject, how to execute pressure and the rules to follow, basic techniques, exercises for he alth, shiatsu as first aid, clinical shiatsu, shiatsu for children and aesthetics.

Thomas Wernicke's authoritative book is one of the first resources in English on Shonishin, a non-invasive form of acupuncture developed specifically to respond to the needs of children. With its safe, quick and effective treatments, Shonishin is increasingly catching the attention of therapists world-wide. Covering the history, theory and clinical practice, Wernicke explores how Shonishin is used with young children, from babies and toddlers to school-age children, to treat a range of behavioural issues and physical conditions such as KISS syndrome, allergies and asthma. He also examines how the techniques can be adapted for use with adults and older people to provide an alternative, non-invasive treatment. With access to downloadable handouts that can be used with patients, and international case studies that demonstrate its effectiveness, his book provides a complete and practical handbook on Shonishin for existing practitioners. Written in an accessible style, it will also be of value to any therapist interested in learning more about the treatment, including practitioners of Chinese and Japanese medicine, traditional acupuncture and shiatsu, craniosacral and occupational therapists, and physiotherapists.

The therapeutic art of shiatsu is now widely practised in the West, yet practitioners find it difficult to acquire the training that will take them beyond the mechanistic level. For many years Akinobu Kishi has been visiting the West to teach, but never before has his approach been recorded in book form. Regarded as one of the leading exponents of shiatsu, Kishi trained with and assisted Shizuto Masunaga, and is widely regarded as the heir to his work, developed to the higher level of Seiki Soho, which takes the practice beyond technique. With the assistance of his long-term student Alice Whieldon, Kishi's theory and practice of Seiki Soho are described and explained for the first time in this important book. Setting his work within the historical context of shiatsu, the long central section of the book consists of a dialogue about the fundamental principles and practice of Masunaga's Zen Shiatsu and Seiki Soho as taught by Kishi. The final section consists of case studies of practice, including the experiences of people treated by Kishi. This groundbreaking and generous book is illustrated with Kishi's calligraphy and other artwork, and will be essential reading for all shiatsu practitioners and students who want to deepen their practice, and a rich and rewarding read for anyone interested in Eastern approaches to life and healing.
