Shiatsu, which is the Japanese word for “finger pressure” is one of the oldest forms of natural healing. It is believed to produce feelings of euphoria, while strengthening the body’s defense system, thereby helping with resistance to disease.
Unlike other full body massages where pressure is applied with the therapist’s hands, this method requires only the use of the fingers, palms and thumbs. The targeted areas are those related to the central and autonomic nervous system.
If you are looking to try something new (although ages-old) and different from an ordinary massage, you will want to consider Shiatsu. $70.00/hr.
