Shiatsu massage is a massage technique whose roots go back to the history of Asia. Shiatsu aims to restore the balance between the body and the environment to protect us from disease.
Although it may be reminiscent of acupuncture, Shiatsu works primarily by regulating the flow of energy in the body. It involves the manipulation of the body's vital energy, Qi. The therapist uses finger and palm pressure.
Qi (chi) refers to the energy that circulates in the body and is the basis of all its functioning. Qi flows through natural pathways in the body called meridians. Shiatsu aims to restore the balance of this Qi.
