What is Shiatsu?

Shiatsu

The Japanese word Shiatsu (指圧) is composed of two words: "shi" meaning finger, and "atsu" meaning pressure. This therapy uses pressure applied with thumbs, fingers and palms to the same energy meridians as traditional Chinese acupressure, with the additional incorporation of stretching. It also adds components such as rolling, brushing, vibrating, grasping and in one particular technique developed by Suzuki Yamamoto, pressure is applied with the feet on the person's back, legs and feet.

A special set up is required for the "foot" shiatsu, so if this is what you want please be sure an let me know in advance!
