Shiatsu is a form of acupressure that originated over 200 years ago in Japan. It is now used worldwide to manage pain and maintain health. It employs gentle and rhythmic pressure on acupressure points and pathways extending over the body. Shiatsu differs from Western massage in that it is performed without lotions or oils. The client is fully clothed for the session which is done on a mat on the floor.
Using the principles of Traditional Chinese medicine, Shiatsu allows the practitioner to stretch and loosen muscles and connective tissue which improves blood flow to the heart and the movement of lymph fluid throughout the body. Oxygen and other nutrients then move more freely to reach cells and tissue. A relaxing and revitalizing experience is the result for the body, mind and spirit.
