Sumo wrestlers have a proverb: "Wounds sustained on the dohyô (the ring) are cured on the dohyô." Sumo is a sport of self-sacrifice in which wrestlers learn to master their bodies; medicine occupies a highly ambivalent position in their world. Bernard Fontanille has permission to examine daily life in a "heya," a sumo training stable. He meets Inui Tomoyuki, a man who uses Chinese medicine and osteopathy to treat Sumos in a unique way.
