Shiatsu (Acupressure) Massage Therapy

Shiatsu is a Japanese Massage combining both Chinese Massage called Tuina and Shizuto Masunaga. Shiatsu can be translated as “finger pressure.” During a treatment, the therapist applies comfortable, sustained pressure to various parts of the body and gentle stretching to help “chi/qi” or life energy flow throughout the body smoothly. Qi flows along pathways referred to as Meridian lines or channels helping blood flow, muscle tonus and posture.                                                                                                   

Benefit: Energy pathways will be balanced, locally and distally, rather than certain muscles being massaged.
