What is a Shiatsu Massage?
Originated in Japan and China, Shiatsu massage has been incredibly popular around the world for more than 50 years. Shiatsu means "finger pressure," and helps describe the technique used. Shiatsu massage therapists put pressure on different points of a person's body, along with rotating and stretching limbs, joints and specific focus areas of the body.
Shiatsu massage follows the Eastern belief in the medicine that the body can heal itself. Shiatsu massage is supposed to put the body in balance, so it can self-repair any injuries. Shiatsu is great for people with nagging aches and pains that can benefit from massage in key areas.
