Shiatsu is a physical therapy that supports and strengthens the body’s natural ability to heal and balance itself. It works on the whole person - not just with the physical body - but also with the psychological, emotional and spiritual aspects of being.
What to Expect
In shiatsu therapy, pressure with thumbs, hands, elbows, knees or feet is applied to pressure points on the body. This form of massage also focuses on rotating and stretching limbs, joints, and pressure points, or meridians, as they're called in traditional Chinese medicine.
Shiatsu restores and maintains the body’s energy, which is especially helpful for those suffering from fatigue and overall weakness. There are many benefits to Shiatsu as it:
-Reduces stress and tension as well as anxiety and depression
