Shiatsu massage, or acupressure, uses slow, focused pressure on specific areas of the body as the client relaxes, fully clothed. Using palming and finger pressure, the therapist stimulates and opens meridian points (energy pathways), unblocking energy congestion and reintroducing the optimal flow of ki, or life energy.
Shiatsu may be enjoyed on the arms, hands, face, or the entire body, and provides exceptional health benefits including stress reduction, deep tissue relaxation, toxin release, increased flexibility and circulation, reduced blood pressure, reduced anxiety and nervousness, and increased mental awareness.
Shiatsu massage therapy is especially effective in treating:
- repetitive motion strain
- stress and fatique
- eating disorders
Clients report feeling calm, refreshed, balanced, and relaxed after Shiatsu sessions.
