The word shiatsu 指圧 in Japanese translates as finger pressure and it is a massage technique that can be used to further enhance the effectiveness of Acupuncture and Moxibustion. Shiatsu was developed in Japan and although it is based on traditional oriental medicine, it incorporates the principles of anatomy, physiology and pathology. Shiatsu is known to assist the autonomic nervous system, helping the body to release toxins and balance the hormonal system. By massaging along the meridians of the body, the treatment stimulates circulation and promotes smooth-flowing ‘Ki’ (energy) throughout the body. Treatments are tailored specifically to you, promoting deep relaxation, relieving dis-ease and elevating the body’s self healing and recovery abilities.
