What is SHIATSU?
Shiatsu is a massage technique originating in Japan, which has as basic characteristic the application of pressure - especially of the thumbs - in certain points of the body. The pressure points used in Shiatsu are known as 'meridians', in an allusion to Traditional Chinese Medicine and Traditional Japanese Medicine, which believe in the existence of energy flows throughout the body. The meridians used in Shiatsu massages are the same ones followed during the acupuncture sessions.
Still according to Eastern medicine, the occurrence of health complications is closely related to disturbances with the energy flow of the body. According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, every organ in the human body corresponds to each meridian. Thus, Shiatsu massages, through the application of pressure, propose to restore the normal flow of energy.
By using the same pressure points of acupuncture, Shiatsu is thus an ideal alternative for anyone who has aversion to needles.
The practice of Shiatsu has revealed a great success in several pathologies:
Low back pain (low back pain)
