What is Shiatsu Massage?

Shiatsu massage, meaning “finger pressure,” is a kneading technique that targets specific points of the body and helps with stretching, joint manipulation and mobilization. Increased circulation promotes muscle relaxation and opens areas of tension to release stress.

According to research conducted by the European Shiatsu Federation and Shiatsu Society:

  • 95% of study participants felt calmer and more relaxed after a shiatsu session
  • 54% of the study group slept better after a session
  • More than 85 percent of participants reported feeling better about symptoms from tension, back pain, joint pain and posture problems
