Shiatsu

Shiatsu is a hands-on physical therapy that supports the body’s natural ability to balance itself.  It originates from Japan but its roots are from Traditional Chinese Medicine.  Literally, Shiatsu means ‘finger pressure’ but a shiatsu practitioner uses palms, hands, elbows and thumbs to stimulate meridians (pathways of energy) through loose fitting clothes to balance energy flow in the body.  It is a very deeply relaxing experience and regular treatments decrease stress and maintain a healthy immune system and support well being.
