This is an ancient Japanese form of alternative medicine that is characterized using only the palms, fingers and especially the thumbs in relieving muscular pain, nausea, stress, depression and anxiety. The objective of a Shiatsu practitioner is to use the sensory organs of their hands to detect disharmonies of the energetic components of the body and to perform routines to correct these problems. As a result of the disharmonies, people experience stiffness or slackness at or within the body's surface.
*Shiatsu is a Holistic Bodywork:*
Shiatsu massage is used to reach the harmony of chi in the human body. This oriental medicine philosophy states that the main cause of disease is the unbalance of chi in the body. Shiatsu massage therapy does not heal the disease; this form of massage therapy directly affects the meridians which then help to unblock the meridian points where the chi is blocked. Health problems are caused by this blockage of chi.
