Dr. Gold`s book, `Seitai (Lymphatic )Shiatsu, Cupping and Gua Sha` is an excellent addition to the field of Asian Healing arts. It is well written and combines his spiritual journey to Japan with a clear description of how to perform Seitai Shiatsu, Cupping and Gua Sha. The photographs are concise and revealing of the multiplicity of methods involved in these classic methods. The description and integration of Western Medical theory with Traditional Chinese Medical theory is seamless and insightful.
