Shiatsu, which translates to “finger pressure,” is a Japanese-originated, Chinese medicine-based practice that works to amplify a body’s own ability to heal itself.Though the practice is designed to restore the body’s balance and energy flow, you don’t need to “believe in” qi or bodily harmony to benefit from Shiatsu. The technique is deeply relaxing and helps to relieve stress, pain, and even illness in some instances.Using the fingers, thumbs, and palms to apply pressure to various points of the body, Shiatsu promotes energy flow by stimulating the circulatory, lymphatic, and hormonal systems.
