Shiatsu is a holistic, hands-on approach for balancing ki (the Japanese word for energy in the body). In Japan, Shiatsu is recognized and licensed as a therapy distinct from massage and other forms of bodywork.
The therapist uses different hand techniques, varying pressure, and stretches along meridians (energy pathways). Results are cumulative: each session encourages a greater sense of health and well-being. Additional benefits may include increased flexibility, stress reduction, alleviation of back and neck pain, strengthening of the immune system and an enhancement of mental and spiritual awareness.
Recommended: Comfortable clothing should be worn or brought to the session.
