Step-by-Step Massage for Pain Relief

This guide provides step-by-step instructions in traditional Chinese massage, which treats the underlying causes and not just the symptoms of pain. The techniques are for use on yourself or on a partner. The treatments relieve over 20 ailments, from headache to back pain. Clear body maps show the locations of the channels, acupoints and pain-relief points. There are easy-to-use instructions for new students and for experienced massage practitioners. Massage for pain relief restores the flow of vital energy, or Qi, through the channels. By massaging specific acupoints – points that lie along the channels – and pain-relief points, which can lie away from the channels, pain is relieved. Passage achieves this by opening the channels, removing stagnant energy and blockages to relieve pain and discomfort caused by ill health and injury. This book contains four chapters. Chapter one provides easy-to-use self-care massage programmes to improve your own health and well-being. Chapter two is a detailed introduction to the techniques for perfoming massage on others and the basic rules of practice.

Artwork in the appendix maps the channels, acupoints and pain-relief points. The book treats the underlying causes and not just the symptoms.
