Caption: Oriental massage. Blurred image of the hands of a masseur carrying out oriental massage on a patient's back. This is a type of Chinese medical therapy related in its philosophy to acupuncture, t'ai chi and Chinese herbal medicine. In oriental massage, pressure is applied to specific parts of the body by the hand or fingers in order to treat physical illness in another part of the body. Like acupuncture, it is used to balance the flow of energy call Qi, which runs through invisible channels known as meridians. There are several forms of oriental massage such as Shin Tao, Jin Shin Do and Shiatsu.
