Shiatsu is a Japanese therapy, based on the principle that vital energy flows throughout the body in a series of channels called meridians. Shiatsu practitioners use thumb and palm pressure, stretching and other techniques to restore the balance of this energy. Shiatsu is great for the health, wellbeing and vitality of the practitioner as well as for the people who receive it!
