“Shiatsu” is a Japanese word for “finger (shi) pressure (atsu).” Shiatsu is a Japanese bodywork technique based on Traditional Chinese Medicine. The therapist uses their fingers, thumbs, and palms to massage the patient. Stretching, joint manipulation and mobilization may also be performed. It’s a quick way to get muscles released, and we like to get as much work done for you as we can at every appointment! Your massage will also include deep tissue techniques. The combination of techniques helps your body relax and release areas that hold tension and/or are stuck.
