WHAT IS JAPANESE MASSAGE OR SHIATSU?
Japanese Massage / Shiatsu is a traditional form of therapy from Japan. By balancing the flow of energy in the meridians, Japanese Massage can relieve many conditions, help prevent the build-up of stress, and restore vitality and well-being. Literally translated as 'finger pressure', Shiatsu uses comfortable pressure from the thumbs and palms applied to the energy channels and points in the body. Given through loose, comfortable clothing, Japanese Massage may also include gentle stretches and rotations of the limbs and joints.
