What is Shiatsu (指圧)?
Shiatsu (指圧) is Japanese for “finger pressure”; it is a type of alternative medicine consisting of finger and palm pressure, stretches, and other bodywork techniques. There is some scientific evidence for any medical effectiveness of shiatsu, but some shiatsu practitioners promote it as a way to help people relax and cope with issues such as stress, muscle pain, nausea, anxiety, and depression. Shiatsu is based on universal energy circulating throughout the body through energy channels called meridians. These meridians connect the 12 organs with other physiological and emotional aspects of the body.
Shiatsu (指圧) can aid a wide range of physical and emotional conditions; from specific physical injuries to emotional difficulties. Based on the same system as Acupuncture, Shiatsu uses touch, acupressure, massage and gentle manipulation techniques to help speed up the body’s natural healing process. These techniques can help release tension, adjust your body’s physical structure, help ward off illness, promote sleep and maintain well-being.
Treatments are tailored to your needs. Shiatsu (指圧) is performed through clothing, please wear loose, warm clothing and comfortable trouser.
