Shiatsu Massage

Shiatsu, the most widely known form of acupressure, literally meaning" finger presser" in Japanese, and has been practiced for more than a thousand years in Japan. Shiatsu uses rhythmic pressure from 3 to 10 seconds on specific points along the body's meridians by using the fingers, hands, elbows, knees, and sometimes feet to unblock and stimulate the flow of energy. A session may also include gentle stretching and range-of-motion manipulations. Shiatsu is used to treat pain and illness, to relax the body, and to maintain general health.
