The Chinese understanding of health is based on the circulation of Qi (energy). If energy is low or becomes blocked it stagnates, leading to illness. Pressure point massage improves circulation of stagnated energy by working along energy channels. This book offers on-the-spot relief for toothache, headaches, shoulder pain and neuralgia, and there are sequences of massage strokes to relieve pain which seems out or reach - such as gastric ulcers and arthritis. It provides step-by-step instructions for practising the technique. Chapter one is a self-care massage programme, chapter two describes the massage techniques, chapter three shows how to open up the channels, and chapter four applies pain relief techniques to treat specific conditions.
