‘Shiatsu’ means finger pressure in Japanese, but your therapist doesn’t just work magic on your body by using their digits. This treatment uses a combination of accupressure techniques to allow your c'hi to flow freely.
Shiatsu is a preventative therapy, thought to get rid of negative energy inside your body, as well as getting the good energy flowing again too.
During your treatment
This treatment is generally performed through clothing, on a futon on the floor. Make sure you wear clothes that you can move comfortably in.
Your therapist might offer some guided meditation or breathing during your treatment; this is a completely optional element.
