What is shiatsu?
Shiatsu is Japanese for "finger pressure". This traditional healing art from Japan is based on the same principles as acupuncture, except no needles are used. Instead, shiatsu massage uses finger and palm pressure, stretches, and other techniques to help balance and restore the body's life energy. Shiatsu massage is traditionally performed on a futon mat, with clients fully clothed.
What are the benefits of shiatsu massage?
Receiving a shiatsu massage can renew your vitality, relieve your pain and stress, and make you more relaxed, renewed, and whole. In my many years of professional practice, I have helped people seeking relief from stress, chronic pain, fatigue, repetitive strain injuries, headaches/migraines, digestive problems, respiratory ailments, and pregnancy-related discomfort.
Community Shiatsu: an affordable alternative
In addition to my one-on-one treatments, I also practice a low-cost form of shiatsu massage called Community Shiatsu. In community shiatsu, couples, friends, or family members arrive together and each first receive a brief health evaluation from me. I then give each person safe and simple instructions on what pressure points to press on each other to address pain and illness and maintain wellness.
