Shiatsu is a Japanese form of massage based on Anma Massage and Traditional Chinese Medicine. The word Shiatsu comes from two Japanese words - "shi" (finger) and "atsu" (pressure), however, we use our hands, forearms, elbows, and sometimes knees and feet to give deep, penetrating yet comfortable pressure. In addition to the direct stimulation of pressure points (Tsubos) along the energy channels (Meridians) of your body, gentle stretching and range of motion techniques are applied to open the energy channels, and encourage the flow of Ki (energy) throughout the body. Shiatsu is a meditative healing art that honors the body, mind and spirit.
