Shiatsu (Japanese Acupressure Massage)

What Is Shiatsu (Japanese Acupressure Massage)

Shiatsu is a dynamic hands-on healing system, originating in Japan, which uses the power of touch, pressure and gentle stretching techniques to balance the body’s energy system, our emotions and the functions of our internal organs. Based on Oriental Medicine Theory (like acupuncture), Shiatsu (or Japanese Acupressure) massage can help in a wide range of conditions – from specific injuries to more general symptoms of poor health. Shiatsu is a deeply relaxing, yet invigorating therapy and regular shiatsu can help to prevent the build up of stress in our daily lives. Shiatsu is a lovely nourishing therapy to have during pregnancy and can be performed in side-lying position. Many of the stretching techniques employed are very similar to Thai yoga massage.
