Shiatsu is a Japanese form of body, mind and spirit work.
Shiatsu treats the energy meridians of the body as defined by Traditional Chinese Medicine.
Using stretching, breathing and pressure on the meridians and acupressure points, Shiatsu recognizes the disharmonies within and helps you bring yourself back to a balanced and harmonic state of mind, body and spirit.
The 5 Principles of Shiatsu
"Acupuncture Without Needles"
Shiatsu is commonly referred to as Acupuncture without needles. In Japanese, Shiatsu directly translates to, "finger pressure."
Shiatsu works directly with Traditional Chinese Medicine and the meridians along the body. Along with the meridians, Shiatsu can be performed on the same points acupuncturists use and be equally effective.
