Shiatsu Massage

"Shiatsu" means finger pressure and it is an old and widely practiced form of oriental massage. Shiatsu-massage was originally developed in China and developed further in Japan. Shiatsu is based on the same principle as acupuncture. Shiatsu is a combination of massage and acupuncture and just like old Chinese medicine it is based on the concept of Qi and the energy meridians.

One of the main differences between shiatsu massage and other types of massage is that most of the pressure applied is static and it is not associated with movements.
