Eddison Books did a fantastic job with this book! It is chock-full of information and is easy to understand. It covers the basics of traditional Chinese medicine, the meridians and qi points, tui na techniques, a full body routine, and tips for everyday applications. The photos and illustrations are great extensions of the related text and provide clarity on what you are reading. It is a great book and I would highly recommend it to anyone interested in learning about it for self-care or for massage therapists who wish to use it as a reference book for their tui na training or use it to add another tool to their toolbox. – Lee Cress: Licensed Massage Therapist and Student of Tui Na
