Shiatsu is a Japanese style of massage therapy that shares similarities with acupressure which is not surprising as the translation of shiatsu is ‘finger pressure’. At the AcupunctChi Clinic, we have have our own unique style of massage to break down energy blockages in the body and bring energy to areas where energy is deficient. Incorporating a variety of stretches into their manipulations to promote proper health and well-being in clients, shiatsu is a full body experience.
Commonly used to endorse relaxation and diminish issues such as stress, muscle pain, nausea, anxiety, and depression, shiatsu is a holistic approach to wellness. The mind has a direct effect on the stresses and strains of the body; to neglect this understanding may lead to a superficial healing process.
