Shiatsu

Shiatsu is a form of acupressure that was developed in Japan. Rather than using needles, the practitioner uses her hands to apply pressure to the meridians and stimulate the flow of Qi. The patient remains fully clothed and work is typically done on a mat on the floor. In addition to the application of pressure on the points and meridians, the practitioner will also use stretches to assist in opening and relaxing the patient’s body.
