masunaga zen shiatsu was presented in mani ht books
its diagnostic areas
masunaga meridian system is interesting:
1. as bellow so above
every part is representation of the whole
yet every limb in TCM is not representation of the whole
in masunaga system it is
2. ortodoxy of lines
he quite freely draws his lines.
which is telling.
in zen shiatsu book lines are drawn one way

in meridian exercises book they are different in many specifics

some lines are missing
plus some lines are probably not drawn always correct (zen shiatsu heart hand finger)
ohashi masunaga zen shiatsu book is specific for it is a team work.
ohashi produced books. his reading the body book uses tcm lines, but focuses on spirit smile, hara connectiong and is nice.
masunaga also produced books. masunaga meridian exercises book uses masunaga similar lines, but is not nice and emphasizes meridian exercises that are out of the frame of zen shiatsu book, working on kanji allegory instead of line working.
it is probably in masunaga system the five element collection points around the hara origin.
as is in zendvd, scroll down to “no comment”
