WHAT IS SAYOSHI BOOKS?
Welcome to Sayoshi Books, a self-publishing imprint devoted to producing books about Japanese acupuncture, moxibustion and other topics of interest. Sayoshi Books is not a conventional publishing house: it’s more a book coaching service working with a collective of authors, working to self-publish. I work with other authors, sharing the hard-learned lessons of self-publishing.
THE STORY SO FAR
In 2020, we published our first book, Moxa in Motion with the Ontake Method and in January 2021, we launched our second, Hirata Zone Therapy with the Ontake Method, the first detailed exploration of Hirata Zone Therapy in English. Subsequently we have completed accompanying workbooks, and started translating them in French and Traditional Chinese.
IWe are pleased to be finalising The String Method, by Felip Caudet, with a foreword by Lorraine Wilcox. Felip’s book explores how to locate effective points for moxibustion by using proportional measuring with string. Much of this is based on the teachings of the renowned twentieth-century moxibustion practitioner, Isaburo Fukaya.

- You’ve got brilliant ideas and years of experience, but writing doesn’t come easily.
- You find it hard to navigate the intricacies of planning, writing, designing, and publishing a book all on your own.
If you’re interested in writing and self-publishing a book and you need guidance, you can think about book coaching. Book coaching could include:
- Content editing – to structure your ideas and language
- Copy editing – to make sure everything is grammatical and reads smoothly
- Proofreading – to weed out those final typos
- Book cover design
- Interior design
- Launch and ongoing promotion
- Online coaching sessions for the whole journey
