What is Shiatsu Therapy?

Do you ever find yourself overwhelmed with the pace of your life? Is your nervous system over stimulated by stress, technology, caffeine and other stimulates? Are you struggling to keep your work and life in balance while tension and pain is a daily reminder?

Shiatsu is a holistic therapy that can help alleviate these and other common ailments that are a result of living in today’s fast paced society.

Its roots go back as far as the 14th century in China with Anma massage which was a deep relaxation and pain relief massage that was given by blind people. The Chinese Buddhist monks brought Anma, to Japan in the 19th century where it was refined and developed into “Shi” (Finger), “Atsu”(Pressure). Today’s Shiatsu combines traditional eastern knowledge and techniques such as; acupressure, Chinese medicine theory and Hara (Abdominal) diagnosis with western sciences of anatomy, physiology, pathology and techniques borrowed from physical therapy and western massages. It is part of the Japanese healthcare system and used as a preventative and rehabilitative treatment.
