Shiatsu, which literally means “cure with the touch of fingers,“ is a Japanese by-product of Traditional Chinese Medicine used for thousands of years to promote health and longevity. Shiatsu primarily uses thumb pressure to achieve mind/body harmony but also employs the use of the hands, knees and feet. Techniques involve holding, rocking, stretching and are combined with various gentle manipulation techniques. As a holistic form of treatment, Shiatsu looks at illness and symptoms of disease as imbalances of energy. Treatment stimulates, relaxes, invigorates, decongests, and gives an overall sense of body/mind/spirit well-being. Shiatsu not only works on the visible symptoms of imbalance, but also at an even deeper level, the energetic level, the root of all imbalances.
