Shiatsu Massage is a form of therapeutic bodywork from Japan. It uses kneading, pressing, soothing, tapping, and stretching techniques and is performed without oils through light, comfortable clothing. This Massage is a non-invasive therapy that may help reduce stress and contribute to overall wellbeing. People believe that it has both preventative and remedial effects.

Massage uses a variety of manual techniques, including pressure, kneading, soothing, tapping, and stretching to access the vital Qi of the body. In the case where the client’s energy is low or deficient, the practitioner uses specific techniques to enhance and vitalize the Qi.

A regular maintenance program of Shiatsu Massage is an excellent way to maintain wellness and improve vitality. This schedule will vary from person to person. One Shiatsu session per month may work well to maintain balance for some while others may require more regular sessions.
