This is a Japanese massage that originated from the traditional Chinese massage called tui na. Shiatsu means finger pressure. Gentle pressure is applied along the meridians using the fingers, heels of the hands, knees and elbows, producing active movement control that releases blockages, gets energy flowing again and sets the body’s self-healing process in motion. Shiatsu can also be performed without reference to meridians: the therapist incorporates more of the guest’s current state and physical expression into their treatment. The massage is performed with the client clothed, either on a floor mat or on a couch. The aim of Shiatsu is to use bodily touch to promote physical, emotional and spiritual well-being and reveal possibilities for unfolding and development. As a treatment method, Shiatsu is used especially to address complaints of the musculoskeletal system. This manual therapy treats headaches, migraine, tension and stress, and increases well-being.
