What is shiatsu?

Shiatsu is a Japanese form of bodywork, in which the practitioner works on the whole body with gentle pressure and stretches. The practitioner works on acupoints and meridians to balance the body’s energetic system. It is deeply relaxing on both a physical, mental and emotional level, which facilitates the body’s own self-healing. It is normally received fully clothed on a comfortable futon at floor level.
