Shiatsu is a Japanese practice of massage and bodywork used to release negative energy and discomfort, while supporting healing and an increased sense of well being. The word shiatsu means “finger pressure”, emphasizing the use of fingers, palms, thumbs, and even elbows to manipulate pressure points and other areas of the body to bring relief from any number of ailments.
By balancing the energy that is meant to regulate our bodies, knowns as “Qi” (pronounced “chee”), Shiatsu helps the body to regulate and heal itself. As described by the University of Minnesota on it’s Taking Charge of Your Health and Wellbeing website, Shiatsu massage techniques can “reduce muscle stiffness, stimulate the skin, aid digestion, and influence the nervous system.” In turn the body’s hormone, immune and nervous systems are positively impacted improving health across the physical and emotional spectrum.
