Illustrated with 499 color photos, the book is easy to follow for laymen and a good training manual for medical workers. It introduces ancient, completely natural methods of massage that have been developed and improved upon over the centuries and found effective for treating injuries, dislocated joints, arthritis, stiffness and spasms, and many other painful afflictions. Even healthy people will find the massage soothing and comfortable.

The Atlas ends with a section detailing a series of gentle exercises that tone the muscles and lubricate the joints and are simple to learn by following descriptions and photos.

The Atlas, written by a team headed by the prominent doctor of orthopedics and traumatology Sun Shuchun, fills a need for natural, good health. Until, massage therapy was one of China’s best-kept secrets. This Atlas is the most readable guide yet to this age-old branch of the health sciences.
