First published in 1976, Do-It-Yourself Shiatsu remains a classic of Ohashi’s practice before he fully developed his teachings and philosophy into Ohashiastu®/Ohashi Method®. Written before he edited Zen Shiatsu with Masunaga, Do-It-Yourself Shiatsu is still considered one of the best guides available to Japan’s healing art of shiatsu.
As Ohashi writes in the preface of this 2001 edition, “I am always learning and developing. I hope to grow and change even more over the next 25 years! As a reader, please be critical and perseverant. Practice and then come back to read again.”
Only in Do-It-Yourself Shiatsu will you find:
- The extensive 48-page chapter “Finding the Tsubos”, with detailed discussion and explanations
- Over 30 exclusive charts and diagrams, featuring Ohashi’s own exceptional Meridian Charts of the Face, Front, Back and Side views
- The extraordinary meridian charts with Ivan Nagy, the world famous ballet dancer as model
