Shiatsu is a Japanese form of massage based on the holistic system of traditional Chinese medicine, where illness is thought to result from imbalances in the natural flow of energy, or Qi (pronounced "chi") through the body.
The skilled Shiatsu therapist 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. When the client is over-stressed, wound-up, or anxious, the practitioner employs techniques to disperse the "excess" energy. In this way, the Qi is regulated.
Shiatsu is a non-invasive therapy that may help reduce stress and contribute to overall wellbeing. Shiatsu can be used in the treatment of a wide range of internal, musculoskeletal, and emotional conditions.
