What is Shiatsu?


Zen Shiatsu is a set of Japanese massage techniques fundamentally it is an energy-based bodywork. Built on the principle foundations of Chinese Traditional Medicine.

The Zen Shiatsu system was developed by Shizuto Masunaga to include western psychology theory and understanding. 

In Japanese Shiatsu means “finger pressure” - In Shiatsu we use not just our fingers, but also our hands, forearms, feet, elbows, and knees to apply pressure to the body, also - if suitable to the receiver - stretches and limb rotations.

I am of course oversimplifying what Shiatsu is, I intend to add more information on here soon.
