Finger pressure: that’s the literal translation from Japanese.
Shiatsu can be done on a mat or table. The practitioner will use finger and palm pressure and stretches along meridians to release chi (vital energy). Dynamic moves with strong pressure will release tension, restore balance and harmony, improve immunity, relieve ailments, and increase energy flow of the body. Shiatsu massage supports individuals in moving towards a greater sense of health and well-being by adjusting the body’s physical structure and its natural inner energies.
Additional benefits include: deep muscle and tissue relaxation, stress reduction and management, released toxins from the body, disease prevention, increased flexibility, improved blood circulation, reduced blood pressure, reduced mental anxieties, balanced chi, calmed nervousness, and increased mental and spiritual awareness.
