Have you been suffering from headaches, stiffness, anxiety, depression or nausea lately? If so, Shiatsu massage therapy is something you might be interested in. Shiatsu is a conventional applied therapy originating from Japanese massage traditions. With some influences from Western therapies, Shiatsu has become very popular in strengthening and supporting the body’s natural ability to balance and heal itself.

Styles of Shiatsu

Many of the early Shiatsu practitioners developed their own style and technique, and some helped establish Shiatsu as a therapy. Today, new approaches of Shiatsu massage are still evolving or being discovered. Some practitioners concentrate on the body along the pathways of energy, while others focus on acupressure points. Other Shiatsu styles include the Five Element System, also known as the Macrobiotic Approach. Still, all these are based on traditional Chinese medicine.

Benefits of Shiatsu Massage

The theory behind Shiatsu massage therapy is that the body is made up of energy called qi. When a balance of qi is achieved, natural healing occurs in our body. By applying the right pressure to the meridians, the immune and nervous systems are stimulated. This provides relief for both mind and body. Shiatsu also helps restore the circulatory system to improve blood flow all throughout the body.
