Massage – Shiatsu

Shiatsu (Japanese for ‘finger pressure’) has its origins in eastern philosophy. It treats the whole person and not just the symptoms, and utilises the energy meridian systems in a manner similar to acupuncture. The client usually lies clothed on a mat on the floor while the practitioner applies compression with thumbs, fingers, palms, elbows and knees to specific pressure points. Stretching is also utilised, with the goal of assisting the flow of energy in the body.
