The Handbook of Chinese Massage: Tui Na Techniques to Awaken Body and Mind

The Handbook of Chinese Massage: Tui Na Techniques to Awaken Body and Mind

For the first time in the West, Chinese tui na massage techniques are brought together in an easy-to-use method for whole-body health
The Handbook of Chinese Massage integrates classic Tui Na (meaning push and grasp) techniques used in the Orient for centuries into a revolutionary method for health and well-being. Traditional Chinese massage practitioners use specific individual techniques to treat a wide variety of ailments--techniques demonstrated in this book. But after years of study in China, Indonesia, and Thailand, Maria Mercati has taken these separate techniques and combined them into a whole-body treatment never before seen in East or West. Tui Na massage stimulates the flow of qi, vital energy, in healthy individuals as well as sick ones. It requires no special equipment and is simple enough to do at home or in a chair at work.

The Handbook of Chinese Massage includes step-by-step instructions for each of the fifteen unique tui na techniques, many of which are unfamiliar to Western massage practitioners.

More than 100 color photographs and diagrams clearly show where to place your hands on the body and where to find the key meridians.

    This review is from: The Handbook of Chinese Massage: Tui Na Techniques to Awaken Body and Mind (Paperback)
    Ms Mercati gives the reader a good overview of this style of massage. One problem many books on Eastern medicine concepts is that the scientific paradigm of qi, yin-yang, etc is difficult to grasp for someone who has been educated on Western scientific principles. This book starts with an introduction to the Eastern principles in a more understandable, concise fashion. This makes it good for a massage therapist who wants to expand his repertoire. At times, the anatomical descriptions are inaccurate eg: referring to the malleolus as an “ankle bone”; however, the informal style of the book keeps it interesting and readable, as well as informative.

    This is the book that got me started in pursuing my career. Maria expains every technique and concept with great detail. Outstanding diagrams and descriptions of meridians and points. Client evaluations and treatments are also included. A must for the professional Massage Therapist.
