Our Acupuncturist Has Co-Authored
a Textbook of Massage Therapy
The textbook was originally published in Japan in 2006. Since then this textbook has been widely used as one of the main texts in registered massage and shiatsu schools in Japan. This book has been also translated into other languages to be published in countries such as Taiwan.
A second impression of this book was released in February, 2012. The new printing expanded a chapter, which discussed the current evidence of massage therapy on circulatory, muscular, immune, nervous and hormonal systems.
