Hands have been used for healing since the beginning of humankind. Doin-ankyo, the Oriental hand-healing method, was developed in China five thousand years ago. At that time in China, it was the basis of all medical practice, whose traditional purpose was to restore the natural healthy state of the mind and body. The hand-healing method uses natural ki energy and is still the best way to achieve that healthy state. It was brought to Japan and became shiatsu, hand-pressure therapy. In the hands of a master, shiatsu therapy is pure magic. But how does a beginner make the leap from books and charts to true healing power? In the book, Ryokyu Endo explains that the magic of shiatsu comes from the inner spirit of the healer.
