3.0 out of 5 stars.  A solid and efficient treatment of the shiatsu., July 24, 2000
By A customer
This "in a nutshell" book is just what it promises, a brief but relatively complete treatment of Shiatsu. The book opens with a sketchy description of chi meridians, moves on to the five elements (fire, water, wood, metal, earth) and how they relate to health, contains some general tips on stretching, nutrition, and acupressure and then concludes with several pages of specific acupressure points and what they do and common ailments and how to treat them with acupressure.

The only thing lacking is in depth specifics on how to perform acupressure. The book for example directs a practitioner to stimulate the triple burner point 6 without mention of how long or how much pressure to apply. The description of where the points are is also a bit thin ("a hand width below the kneecap on the outside shin"). All in all this book is just 64 little pages but packs a great deal of information in that small size and is visually appealing, for the size and price it is "the book" for someone with a passing interest in shiatsu/acupressure.
