Shiatsu Massage (KoKoDo Shiatsu Igaku) - Effective Hands-On Acupressure
Shiatsu is a traditional Japanese form of massage based on the same meridian system as acupuncture, but instead of using needles, the hands and thumbs are used to apply pressure at points along the meridians.
Shiatsu massage can be used on its own at a treatment or combined with acupuncture and moxibustion.
Shiatsu treatments can be quite relaxing and enjoyable, although you might feel some discomfort when it releases areas which have stagnation and congestion. Discomfort in Shiatsu massage is very temporary and the amount of pressure used is easily adjusted to your personal comfort level.
