What is Shiatsu Massage?
This massage is an ancient and holistic healing practice from Japan that is based on the meridian system of energy. It is older than acupuncture, hailing from a time before needles existed!
According to shiatsu, the body is made of energy called qi. Qi can become blocked, causing mental, emotional and physical ailments. In order to unblock qi, the meridian points must realign. The meridian system holds that the body contains 12 meridians: bladder, gall bladder, heart, heart governor, kidney, large intestine, liver, lung, small intestine, spleen, stomach and triple heater.
A Shiatsu massage aims to redistribute qi throughout the body.
This massage incorporates application of pressure to distinct pressure points along the meridians. In Japanese, “shiatsu” means finger pressure. Your massage therapist will use their fingers, but perhaps also their palms, elbows, knees and feet, to gently press your pressure points. In addition, she may stretch, knead, pull and tap parts of your body, like your arms. Japanese people traditionally practice shiatsu on the floor.
Our goal is to redistribute energy throughout the body to restore a sense of balance and bodily integrity.
