Shiatsu is a type of massage made famous in Japan that uses “finger pressure” as its primary source of massage therapy. During the treatment, the massage therapist applies pressure to various points of the body in an organized and rhythmic pattern. Based on Chinese medicine, Shiatsu is performed in order to help the patient restore balance within their body, relieve them of common aches and pains, and encourage proper energy flow throughout their body.
The Japanese Ministry of Health defines Shiatsu as “a form of manipulation by thumbs, fingers and palms without the use of instruments, mechanical or otherwise, to apply pressure to the human skin to correct internal malfunctions, promote and maintain health, and treat specific diseases”. The techniques used in shiatsu include stretching, holding, and most commonly, leaning body weight into various points along key channels.
