I read this book shortly after my wife delivered a set of twins, both of which weighed over 7pounds. My wife understandably suffered from strained back and shoulder muscles. I bought the book thinking that it might save me a chiropractor bill. What a wonderful surprise. Not only did it save me a doctors bill, it worked like majic on my wife's back and shoulders. That was 5 years ago and many books and many hours of massage have passed since then. I have worked on family and friends ever since. Even met people who have heard of me through acquantances and the results are still unbelievable. Although I have not been able to completely and totally cure everyone, there have been very few that I could not help to some degree. It's a wonderful feeling to be able to help people through such a wonderful medium.
Although I do not believe in Yin and Yang, I do believe in massage and pressure point therapy. This is a wonderful book and I offer my sincere thanks to Peijian Shen.

I have been using this book for a few years and really enjoy it. The first section explains the techniques and ideas, and the second section has illustrated step-by step instructions which are easy to follow. I use it mostly for menstrual cramps, because in 10 minutes you can have no cramps and be totally blissed out which is better than waiting around for a pill to work. Last week I used the head massage on a friend with a really bad cold and her congestion went away. It's really effective and works faster than medication. I'm really glad I have it and now when there is something painful I look in the book before I look in my medicine cabinet. But you really need a partner to help you out because there's no way you would be able to effectively reach all the necessary pressure points on your own.

This book works well, the diagrams allow you to focus on the correct spots, as well as teach methods for relaxing and kneading in certain ways for the best possible mix. Users will not be disappointed, provided their problem is listed in the book. If anything, it will teach you great massage techniques. Learning curve is good, as anyone, even novices, will get the hang of this book very quickly.

Not what I was expecting.. I ended up giving it away. It's a little "dated" as far as the layout and artwork. It's mostly illustrated. Very basic, more for beginners. Though does have some useful info. If you just want to learn a few acupressure points it's okay. If your looking for some good pain relief tips, as I was, it doesn't really have much info. Mostly where to locate points.

As a Christian and an Ex-New Age Satanist I refuse to get into the Chi balancing, Toa mystic god's and all that none sense. It is plainly NOT needed but my wife suffers from terrible migraines and has for almost 5 years now and anything that will help her is welcomed MINUS the religious garbage and this book is FILLED with that.

I would say if you just stick to the techniques of massage and dump the other trash it is a help.

This book is more versatile that I expected, and has a lot of information. It's harder to find exactly what you want, but the information is there.
