Until recently, 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. Dr Sun has clinical and teaching experiences of more than twenty years in these fields, and has formed a technique of his own by combining Western medicine with traditional Chinese medicine.
