Shiatsu

“Shiatsu” is the Japanese term for finger pressure and is often referred to as finger pressure massage. It was developed by Tokujiro Namikoshi in the 1930s. It is a type of alternative medicine and is similar to acupressure devised by the Chinese. It is mainly used as a stress reduction and relaxation technique but is also known to reduce nausea, depression, body-pain, panic attacks, and many other physical and mental disorders.

Shiatsu therapists use their thumbs, fingers, fingertips and palms to apply pressure on the body. Patients remain fully clothed and must lie down on a mat during this procedure. Pressure is applied in a rhythmic pattern and this relieves stiffness and tension and improves blood circulation. Shiatsu is used to improve the flow of energy or “qi” in the body.
