Shiatsu Oriental massage utilizes the hands, palms and fingers to massage the entire body or specific acupressure points and treats many different conditions and encourages relaxation. Although often referred to as a form of massage, shiatsu is actually a form of energy work that balances the energy pathways in the body. People who go for regular treatments reap the most benefits, but even one session can help you relax and begin to clear the blocks in energy.

Massage techniques like tapping, squeezing, rubbing and applied pressure are used along the meridians and their acupressure points to unblock energy pathways and reintroduce the optimal flow of Qi. Shiatsu massage can include stretching and joint rotations. Effective for stress, locomotive and internal disorders, shiatsu stimulates blood circulation, calms the nervous system and increases mental/physical energy.
