Ohashi’s Books

Beyond Shiatsu
Ohashi's Bodywork Book Ohashi’s Bodywork Method by Wataru Ohashi, Paul Deangelis (Editor), Kan Okano (Photographer)

The Ohashi Bodywork Book is the first to detail the methods of the world famous Ohashi Institute. Ohashiatsu® is a unique acupressure program that facilitates the exchange of energy between giver and receiver — and energizes both. Dramatically clear photographs illustrate entire body movements — not just acupressure points — to show exactly how this unique, rejuvenating interaction occurs. Other photographs show the most common mistakes in body position, postures that exhaust rather than energize. Visually sophisticated and elegantly designed, The Ohashi Bodywork Book will quickly become the bible for everyone seeking serious knowledge of healthy bodywork.


Do-It-Yourself Shiatsu
Do-It-Yourself Shiatsu How to Perform the Ancient Japanese Art of Acupressure by Wataru Ohashi, Vicki Lindner (Editor) 25th Anniversary edition.

In this book Ohashi, one of the most knowledgeable and well-known U.S.-based bodywork teachers, tells how you can learn to perform shiatsu at home on yourself and your friends. Ohashi, who has taught and practiced in this country for years, has written specifically for a Western audience, focusing on the common discomforts that bother us here in the West. He has provided clear explanations of all technical terms and attractive photographs throughout to illustrate the techniques and the exact locations of the pressure points. He has also included special exercises designed to keep your energy flowing.


Reading the Body
Reading the Body Ohashi’s Book of Oriental Diagnosis by Wataru Ohashi, Tom Monte (Contributor)

The secrets of your life are written on your body. In this book Ohashi helps you to learn these secrets by showing you how to read your body to determine both your physical and spiritual condition as revealed in the physical self. Because, as Ohashi notes, the body is the physical manifestation of the soul, your posture, your features, and the texture of your skin can tell you who you are.
