What Is this Book about?
This book is a comprehensive reference guide about the concepts, background, and treatment modalities of traditional Japanese Massage and Bodywork.
Traditional Japanese Medicine has been substantially influenced by Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), but to claim that the Japanese healing arts are just a derivative of TCM wouldn’t do justice at all.
TCM knowledge gradually entered Japan between the 3rd and 8th century CE, but since then 1,500 years have passed, and the Japanese changed and upgraded a range of TCM modalities, many of those profoundly affected by Japanese cultural elements, local attitudes of calmness, discipline, and purity, Zen Buddhism, Taoism, Shinto, and Western Medicine.
Already in the 17th century CE — much earlier than other surrounding countries — Japan opened its doors for Western approaches of practicing medicine, and across the centuries the Japanese have adopted many modern insights into their own medical systems.
After the Second World War (1945), and the subsequent occupation of Japan by the Americans, the country received even more direct influence from the West, but moreover, the West itself became highly interested in traditional Japanese healing methods and techniques.
The latter resulted in an extensive export of traditional Japanese therapies to the West, of which Shiatsu Massage is perhaps the most notable type of bodywork being fully embraced in North and South America, and in Europe.
