This Japanese treatment is based on acupuncture, using pressure from the fingers. Shiatsu combines a smooth movement of chi energy and the physical benefits of a deep tissue massage, stimulating the body's natural defences and encouraging self-healing.
The fundamental characteristic of Shiatsu is applying pressure using only fingers, palms and especially thumbs on points related to the central and autonomic nervous system, and to do this, the therapist´s ability to detect and diagnose energy imbalances and correct them is essential.
Furthermore, through this natural therapy originating from Traditional Chinese Medicine, therapists also can promote the prevention and recovery of illnesses by stimulating the immune system and the natural healing power that we already have, without treating a specific problem, as it treats the body as a whole.
In Japan, Shiatsu is regulated as a medical therapy by the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare, and elsewhere, by various supervisory bodies created by the professionals who practice it.
