Say goodbye to tension and pain with the press of a finger. Shiatsu is a Japanese style massage that utilizes finger pressure to target various points on the body. Shiatsu practitioners believe that by stimulating the body's acupressure points, they can promote healing and relaxation. During a Shiatsu massage, a masseusewill use a variety of techniques, such as kneading, stretching, and rocking, to manipulate the body's soft tissues and apply pressure to specific points. This technique relieves stress and tension, promotes relaxation, improve circulation, and reduces muscle pain and stiffness. Similarly to Chinese style massages, the Shiatsu technique’s philosophy revolves around the existence of the body’s life force known as Qi (or Chi). The Shiatsu technique is meant to open up blocked channels in the body to increase the flow of Qi in the body.
