Shiatsu

“Shiatsu” in Japanese means finger pressure. It is a form of bodywork which is recognized by the Japanese Ministry of Health as an additional health treatment. Shiatsu’s aim is to smooth the energy flow (Qi) throughout the body, leading to good function of the organs and the circulatory system. Shiatsu takes place on the floor on a futon mattress, without lubricants, with the Receiver wearing comfortable cotton clothes. The Shiatsu Giver exercises finger pressures on imaginary lines, the meridians (energy channels). The theory of Shiatsu is based on the Traditional Chinese Medicine.
