Shiatsu is a Japanese word meaning finger pressure.
Shiatsu Massage and Healing is an energy-based bodywork therapy.
It incorporates the theory of acupuncture which proposes that energy, known as chi or ki moves through the body along pathways called meridians.Creating balance in these energy flows is considered to be essential for health and well-being. Shiatsu involves the application of pressure on points and energy pathways on the body using the practitioners fingers, hands, elbow, knee or feet.
Shiatsu is characterized by its simplicity and adapts itself to your individual, unique needs.
Its important to note that shiatsu healing treatments are done through the clothing.
