Shiatsu Massage is a Japanese form of massage. The word Shiatsu comes from two Japanese words – “shi” (finger) and “atsu” (pressure). In addition to the direct stimulation of pressure points along the energy pathways of your body, gentle stretching techniques are applied over a wider area of the body to integrate the point work and encourage the flow of Qi (energy) throughout the body. Shiatsu is a meditative healing art that honors the body, mind and spirit. Individuals who are uncomfortable with idea of receiving acupuncture needles enjoy this variation of acupressure and are astounded by its healing benefits.
