This manuel is well written and explains the various techniques and their uses nicely. I bought it because our Tui Na instructor had it as the required text for her class. Some of the names of the techniques are different than what the instructor learned and there are so many names given to every variation that it is sometimes difficult to remember the subtle differences in technique which go with each one. It's nice to have proper names for the techniques but these are not always the same as the instructor learned them and these seem to differ as much as the chinese dialects. Other than this minor complaint, I have found it very useful, easy to read, and understand. The pictures definitely help the description of each technique. There are good explanations as to what each Tui Na technique is useful for and the conditions helped by it. I would recommend this book for anyone attempting to learn and understand Tui Na.

This review is about Amazon - not about the book.

DVD included in the book is useless to MAC owners using updated operating system that no longer supports Power PC. Amazon sold this product knowing that the DVD was useless to MAC owners with updated operating systems. I can not return book - past return date - just opened the DVD yesterday! This is a bit deceptive on Amazon's part - and there is no way to voice my concern other than through this review!his review is about Amazon - not about the book.

The Pritchard book is quite helpful and a nice improvement from her last edition. Instructions, descriptions and stories included in the book are very helpful. I wish I could see what was on the DVD!!! That is why I purchased this edition, having already purchased Sarah's first text on Amazon last year!

I wish Amazon would correct this so others' don't get caught in the same situation. I wish Amazon would contact me to resolve the issue - like they have done with other concerns in the past.

Waiting for your call Amazon!

I found the manual easy to read and beautifully illustrated, but the DVD is a disappoitment, as it wasn't in a format that is easily read by the computers I used to try viewing it. I will have to get it burned on to a different disc to see what is included there; too bad it wasn't "user-ready"!
