Shiatsu is a form of therapeutic bodywork from Japan. It involves rhythmic pressure and stretching techniques applied along specific points and pathways on the body, known as meridians. The word "Shiatsu" means "finger pressure" in Japanese, reflecting the technique's use of thumb, palm, and even elbow pressure to stimulate these points. Shiatsu aims to improve energy flow, relieve stress, and promote healing. It's often used to treat a range of physical and emotional issues, including muscle pain, stress, and fatigue. Unlike some other forms of massage, Shiatsu is typically performed through clothing and does not involve the use of oils.
