. Shiatsu in japanese means finger pressure (shi=finger, atsu=pressure). It’s a therapeutic technique that originated from Ancient Traditional Chinese Medicine.
. This technique works by applying pressure on the acupuncture points and the energy channels (meridians) that run through the body, with circumduction of joints and stretching of muscles, tendons and ligaments.
. The purpose of Shiatsu is the harmonious flow of Qi vital energy that occurs throughout the physical body. Qi stagnation or its excessiveness can result to many diseases and can be treated through its mobilisation.
. The counterbalance of Qi and the amelioration of its quality lead to balance and growth of the body, emotions and mind, as well as a deep connection between them.
