Chariya: In what ways do you think shiatsu is 'Japanese'?
Daiki: Well, isn't it a sort of bonsai massage? The focus is on one small area and pain is basically irrelevant.
Bhäraté: Why be obsessed about nationality?
An-Yi: Because it gives us something to talk about – that's all.
Shiatsu - an art work by T Newfields Move straight to the point
undaunted by pain

Help all that is out-of-balance
find equilibrium the best way

Listen to the body
and what it has to say

Move past surface annoyance
probing pain –

Align energy centers
Let healing to take place
