What is shiatsu?

Shiatsu is the Japanese name for a therapy originating from ancient Chinese medicine involving various types of pressure. The Japanese words shi and atsu literally mean ‘finger’ and ‘to press’, respectively. As the name suggests, Zen-shiatsu is a specific type of shiatsu, developed in Japan.

In modern shiatsu the practitioner does not restrict himself to using finger pressure. He also uses his elbows and knees, for example, to exert a physical pressure that his clients must at all times experience as comfortable.
