Shiatsu, translated from Japanese means, “Finger pressure points”. Pressure points are tiny specific points located all over the body, which when pressed, releases tension from that area. The Shiatsu practitioner knows where these points are located and how to apply the correct pressure in the right way to release the tension. These points are all connected via meridian energy channels that interconnects the entire body.
