Shiatsu is a Japanese manual therapy that is based on the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Shiatsu means finger pressure. Soft and empathetic pressure with the thumbs, fingers and hands stimulates the circulation of energy (Ki) in the body.
Shiatsu works on the meridians in the body, which are concentrations of energy flows that influence certain physical and mental processes. Your body has the natural capacity to adapt to changing circumstances. When your body is no longer able to do that, you become ill. Influencing the energy flows with shiatsu strengthens your self-healing ability.
