Shiatsu is a Japanese word (shi - finger and atsu - pressure) Shiatsu is a Japanese form of bodywork.The word Shiatsu means “finger pressure”,and is sometimes described as a finger pressure massage..HOW DOES SHIATSU WORK? Like acupuncture, Shiatsu is based on the holistic system of traditional chinese medicine,where illness is thought to result from imbalances in the natural flow of energy,or qi (pronounced “chee”) through the body.Shiatsu therapists use finger and palm pressure to clear and improve the energetic pathways,called meridians.A scientific explanation is that Shiatsu calms an overactive sympathetic nervous system,which improves circulation,relieves stiff muscles,and alleviates stress..WHAT DOES SHIATSU FEEL LIKE? The Shiatsu therapist applies pressure using his or her fingers,thumbs,and / or palms in a rhythmic sequence.The pressure feels more locolized,because unlike other types of massage,the finger pads are used to apply pressure for most of the treatment instead of the entire palm.Certain pressure points may feel tender,which some people describe it as “good pain”.If you feel any discomfort or pain during the treatment,tell your therapist and he or she will adjust the pressure so that it is comfortable for you..*Most people say Shiatsu is more relaxing than a classic massage*..The treatment is done on a massage table,chair or on the floor.Unlike other forms of massage,no oil is applied,so you remain fully clothed during the treatment..WHAT CONDITIONS IS SHIATSU USED FOR? *RELAXATION *BACK PAIN *HEADACHE *PREMENSTRUAL SYNDROME *ANXIETY *NECK AND SHOULDER PAIN *TIREDNESS *RECOVERY FROM INJURIES *STRESS *ARTHRITIS PAIN *DEPRESSION *POOR DIGESTION.
