here is a start. other than that you can buy masunagas book titled "zen shiatsu" at amazon.com or some other book place.

thanks for the quick reply.

That is not quite what I am looking for though.

I want to look at the relationship between the classical and the extensions through out the chest, in particular thier positioning to each other.

any other help or pics would be great,

thanks again,

Hi Chen, I know the microcosmic orbit pics is kind of not exactly what you were asking, but it is related.

Masunaga is well noted for his meridian extensions and the propogation of the theory that they are wrapped in. There are limited resources available outside of books or actual instruction.

Are you unable to find instruction in this? If so, let me know where you are located and perhaps I can help you source out some instruction?

There is a place online that offers fairly comprehensive instruction in TCM.(http://www.medboo.com) But I would only recommend the distance learning approach -after- a few years of hands on training and practice.

thanks again for the reply.

I am aready studying TCM and Shiatsu.

I am looking for the pic for my own reference. It appears there is little info out there on this subject that clearly explains what I am looking for.

thanks again,
