From an internationally known expert in the teaching and practice of Fukushin, this is a unique book defining the therapeutic and diagnostic significance of the abdomen in East Asian medicine. Nigel Dawes provides a comprehensive description of the practical application of abdominal palpation in clinical settings, as well as offering hands-on descriptions of the precise methodology of the abdominal exam with supporting visual aids.

Focusing on specific clinical application in the field of Kampo (Sino-Japanese Herbal Medicine), it allows for the subtleties of the Fukushin method to be disseminated in order to complement Traditional Chinese Medicine training.

Highly visual and practical, Fukushin is the perfect guide for both Japanese and Chinese medicine students and practitioners looking to develop their toolbox of skills in abdominal palpation.


'Fukushin and Kampo launches a new era for the international growth of Kampo medicine despite its restricted practice in Japan. It is much more than the clearest introduction in English to the art of Kampo palpation and formula correspondence. It is a body-mind cultural primer and history of the abdominal palpatory traditions in Japan. The books shines with Kampo clarity, thought and techniques and is enhanced with first rate history, cultural, and professional philosophical concerns.'
