Shiatsu is a Japanese word meaning “finger pressure.” A form of Asian body work, its goal is similar to that of acupuncture or acupressure to restore the balance of energy (chi) in the body.

Using ancient Asian concepts, the shiatsu practitioner (giver) utilizes points (tsubos) along the body's meridians. Practitioners of Chinese medicine and shiatsu assert that disease, illness, discomfort and many physical and emotional infirmities are caused by imbalances in the flow of energy.

Balanced chi promotes physical comfort; improves the immune system; provides for better physical and stronger, and more stable emotional health.
