Shiatsu is a Japanese form of massage therapy. The word Shiatsu comes from two Japanese words — "shi" (finger) and "atsu" (pressure). In addition to the direct stimulation of pressure points along the energy pathways of your body, gentle stretching techniques are applied over a wider area of the body to integrate the point work and encourage the flow of Chi (energy) throughout the body. Shiatsu is a meditative healing art that honors the body, mind and spirit.
Zen Shiatsu is a calmer, more "zen" form of this Japanese bodywork (sometimes called “no-needle acupuncture”). The therapist will conduct a "Hara Diagnosis" to identify the most out of balance meridians, the most "excess" and most "deficient" to then treat symptoms of illness through calm pressing and mild stretching of pathways on the body known as meridians.
