Shiatsu is a Japanese style of massage that is based in Traditional Chinese Medicine. The practitioner uses acupressure points to access the energy meridians throughout the body, thereby releasing muscle tension, increasing cellular metabolism and engaging your body's self-regulating, self-regenerating and self-healing abilities.
