Do-in is a combination of meridian stretching exercises, breathing exercises, chi exercises and self massage. If you do the meridian stretching exercises on this page you will get an idea of the condition of your own energy, and you will improve your health.
There are three reasons for practicing do-in: To become aware of your own energy, for self treatment and for giving a good shiatsu-therapy.
Practicing do-in is a good way to work on your own health. Unfortunately a therapist often gets very little massage himself. To give shiatsu therapy you must know how to use your body without becoming tense yourself! It is essential to feel the energy of the patient without feeling your own tension. For this reason it is also important to practice meditation. If the spirit is quiet the message it gets is more pure.
