Description - Shiatsu by Oliver Cowmeadow

Developed from a traditional from of Japanese massage, Shiatsu is based upon the same philosophy and medical theory as acupuncture and other oriental healing methods. Literally translated, Shi-atsu means 'finger pressure', but practitioners also use their palms, knees and forearms, and employ stretching techniques. These combine in a simple but effective from of treatment used to promote health and general well-being, as well as to cure illness and prevent future problems. In this straightforward step-by-step guide, Oliver Cowmeadow introduces us to the ways in which Shiatsu can be beneficial to both the person giving and the person receiving. Shiatsu: A Practical Introduction clearly explains: the role of energy in Shiatsu; how to give a full body Shiatsu treatment; how to eat an energetically balanced diet to promote health; how to treat simple health problems with Shiatsu; methods of oriental diagnosis; common uses of acupressure points; energy balancing exercises for yourself

Author Biography - Oliver Cowmeadow

After obtaining a degree in zoology and teaching biology in schools and colleges, Oliver Cowmeadow encountered Eastern philosophy and medicine in 1980. Immediately taken by the Oriental view of life and health, he intensively studied the Eastern philosophy and its application in Shiatsu and macrobiotics in London, Boston and on the Continent. Oliver moved to the south west of England to begin practicing Shiatsu, and in 1985 founded the Devon School of Shiatsu, one of the first schools in the UK offering a full training in Shiatsu. He has played a significant part in the development of the Shiatsu Society, the professional body representing Shiatsu in the UK, especially in the areas of curriculum development and training standards. This is his fifth book on the Eastern approach to health.
