    I have abroken nose and had two surgeries. Even after my second surgery my nose was still not streight. Then I remembered someone telling me about this oriental way to fix broken bones and I went to a Tui na chinese doctor who (THANK GOD) moved my broken nose to the center.

    I am wondering is Shiatsu, which is Japanese can do the same thing (fix broken nose etc) and which one is better?

    If Both Tui na (Chinese) and Shiatsu (Japanese) do the same thing which one should I go for?

    I will not lie that I trust Japanese more so should I go for Shiatsu instead?

    Here is a list of other oriental techniques that deal with massage and related topics. Can any of these help me with my broken nose?

    Anma
    Chin na
    Gua Sha
    Naprapathy
    Pushing hands
    Shiatsu
    Dim Mak
    Varma Kalai

    I am a new man as this Chinese Tui na massus did move my broken nose a little bit but I am wondering if a good Japanese Shiatsu master can do a tid bit better job?

    Thank you for your help!

    God Bless!!!

    Like acupuncture, shiatsu is based on the holistic system of traditional Chinese medicine, where illness is thought to result from imbalances in the natural flow of energy, or qi (pronounced "chee") through the body.

    Shiatsu therapists use finger and palm pressure to energetic pathways, called meridians to improve the flow of qi. Certain pressure points may feel tender, which some people describe it as "good pain."

    According to the link, shiatsu can help in recovery after injuries.

    I am sorry but I am not familiar with the other techniques because I live in an area where none of them are near me. But I would say that if you have the professionals near you, you should go.

    God bless.

    Moving broken noses is not exactly part of the Shiatsu system. If you found success with a Tui Na practitioner, I would stick with that.
