Review by Publisher Summary 1

Jang, who works at an acupuncture and wellness center and draws on Eastern and Western medicine when working with patients, contends that weight and body shape can be a result of ill health and outlines the structures and functions involved, looking at the factors of skin, fat, muscles, the diaphragm, historical illness and injuries, body posture, the body clock or circadian rhythm, digestion, blood vessels, nutrition, and the nervous system and how they contribute to changes in body shape. She describes the meridian system in traditional Chinese medicine; individuals who can benefit from body reshaping treatment due to specific problems; the six body types (based on similar tissue structures and functions) and their characteristics, conditions, and treatment; muscle meridian therapy and skin cutaneous therapy for body reshaping; treatment methods; and specific clinical cautions and applications.

Review by Publisher Summary 2

This book provides an introduction to muscle meridian therapy for both diagnosis and clinical treatment of health problems using traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) tools and wisdom. Muscle meridian therapy refers to passive application of treatments to muscles not connected to any major organ. The techniques can improve all the metabolic balances of the body—pressure, temperature, balance—and improve overall health. Therapies can benefit all people, including those with traumas such as digestive system disorders, autonomic nerve system disorders, medication complications, post-childbirth complications, major scarring, posture, and pain management.

Review by Publisher Summary 3

Body Reshaping through Muscle and Skin Meridian Therapy: An Introduction to 6 Body Types shows you how your weight and body shape can be a direct result of ill health and explains the structures and functions involved. It explores much more than just what your scale and the fit of your clothes might tell you. It looks at skin, fat, muscles, diaphragm, historical illnesses or injuries, body posture, body clock or circadian rhythm, digestion, blood vessels, nutrition, sympathetic nervous system, parasympathetic nervous system, and enteric nervous system. By examining the above factors, you will learn how they contribute toward changes in body shape (notice no mention of dieting or exercise).Muscle meridian therapy refers to the passive application of treatments to muscles not connected to any major organ. The techniques involved improve all the metabolic balances of the body (pressure, temperature, and balance) as well as your overall health. Therapies can benefit all people, including those with traumas such as digestive system disorders, autonomic nerve system disorders, medication complications, post-childbirth complications, major scarring, posture issues, and pain management.The author provides the traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) tools and techniques needed for practitioner-guided wellness or at-home wellness understanding and maintenance. The book offers a full guide to "body type" evaluation for muscle meridian therapy and presents a "passive" therapy method (like massage or acupuncture) to complement "active" therapies (like physical therapy and exercise). It covers concepts that are highly individualized yet very "whole body" for physical restoration and balance.
