by Mantak Chia and William U. Wei —

Good health depends on the free flow of life-force energy, or chi, throughout the entire body.

The accumulation of tensions in the muscles and tendons and the stagnation of negative energy can lead to blockages in the body’s energy channels, resulting in pain, low energy or illness.

This full-color illustrated guide details massage techniques for unblocking chi, releasing tight tendons and muscles, and alleviating back and joint pain.

It explores the 10 Thai energy meridians known as Sen Sib, the 12 muscle-tendon meridians of Chinese acupuncture, and the most commonly strained muscles and tendons of the spine, neck and pelvis.

The authors explain how to treat specific ailments with the traditional Thai massage technique known as Tok Sen, which uses a wooden hammer to send vibrational energy deep into the fascia and muscles along the Sen Sib meridians.

This method is particularly effective for joint pain. They also explain meridian detox therapy, which includes cupping, skin massage and Gua Sha — the scraping of different parts of the body to clear blood stagnation, promote metabolism and treat acute illness.

The final book in the Chi Nei Tsang series, it offers advanced massage techniques to work with the energy meridians.
