Shiatsu is a traditional Japanese therapy which derives its theoretical and practical roots from the ancient traditions of Oriental medicine. It releases emotional and physical tension, re-energises, and supports people to fully live their lives. Clients remain fully clothed whilst receiving Shiatsu, which is normally performed on a futon, although clients can sit on a chair or lie on a massage table if they prefer. The practitioner uses stretches, finger pressure and movement to balance the meridians (energy channels), thereby supporting the return to health.
