Brief Description
Acupoint massage is a health maintenance method developed by the Chinese and Chinese medical doctors in their centuries-long struggle against disease. It is based upon the traditional theories of qi, blood, visceral organs, meridians and collaterals, and is characterized by pressing and rubbing on meridians, acupoints, muscles and skin areas with different parts of the palms and fingers and varying degrees of force. It includes pushing and stroking the meridians, digital and palmar pressing on the acupoints, kneading and grasping the muscles, and rubbing the skin. Acupoint massage is so called because the massage is chiefly applied to acupuncture points and meridians.

This well-illustrated massage book provides quick cures and permanent and temporary relief for more than fifty common ailments, including headaches, bronchial asthma, hypertension, diabetes mellitus, constipation, impotence, menstrual disorders, menopausal syndrome, infantile indigestion, stiff necks, acute lumbar sprain, and leg cramps. It also offers tips on how to improve the constitution, prevent diseases, and guarantee longevity.

Acupoint massage can be performed by patients or their family members. It is safe and simple, causes no inconvenience or pain, and can be applied to patients at any age.
