Shiatsu Massage

Shiatsu is a massage technique that uses the power of touch and pressure application. This type of therapy comes from ancient Japanese culture; however, it has been adapted to the practices of Chinese medicine and uses the principles of the meridian healing system.

The main goal of Shiatsu is to maintain or restore energetic balance in order to prevent or treat dysfunctions that could be caused by the unbalance of that energy. According to the view of Eastern Medicine, diseases are caused by the deregulation of energy in the meridians.

The meridian

healing system is concentrated on increasing the blood circulation in certain points of the body. There are twelve meridians that are associated with organs such as the kidney, liver, spleen, stomach, heart, lungs, bladder, gallbladder, small and large intestines, body temperature regulator and pericardium. All these organs constitute the path for the energy of the body Qi (chi) to flow.

When the body is unbalanced, the immune system becomes weak and vulnerable to contracting diseases. If an individual experiences a loss of energy, this shows that the body is weakening, the organs are losing their ability to function properly and body tissues are slowly failing.

Thus, the Qi (chi) loses its ability to flow freely. The masseur or masseuse will then be able to help stimulate the body’s immune system. He or she uses a pressure method using fingers, thumbs and palms to massage the area in order to release the blocked energy.

Shiatsu massage therapy is used to assist in the treatment of many diseases such as:

Back pain
Sciatic nerve pain
