Japanese Shiatsu massage

Shiatsu massage was developed by the Japanese. Although the assumptions of this technique derive from ancient Chinese massage, Shiatsu has only been used since the twentieth century.
Shiatsu is a traditional Japanese massage technique. Shiatsu is also called point massage or acupuncture without needles.

In Japanese, the word “shiatsu” means “push your thumbs”. It is the compression of specific points on the body that is the most important of the activities performed by the masseur during the massage.

Like acupuncture, shiatsu massage is based on traditional Chinese medicine, which assumed that all illnesses originate in an imbalance in the natural flow of energy in the human body. In order to improve the flow of this energy, the masseur shakes his fingers and hands with energetic routes known to the meridians to unblock them.
