What are the benefits of shiatsu?
The benefits of shiatsu therapy run far and wide. Because shiatsu effects the circulatory and nervous systems, it deeply effects the body’s immune response, circulation to limbs and organs will help promote health and mobility, relieve aches and pains, and help the organs work more effectively. Shiatsu also stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system which is the ‘rest and recovery’ mode of the nervouus system. This encourages the body’s own healing systems, and deep relaxation.

What is the difference between shiatsu and massage?
Shiatsu is the application of deep sensitive pressure using the thumbs, fingers and hands, and some therapists also apply techniques using their elbows, and knees. Many times shiatsu therapists will also apply several joint manipulating stretches and movements. Shiatsu treatment does not involve the use of oil as there are no rubbing or sliding-along-the-skin techniques, as found in massage. Shiatsu clients can wear loose comfortable clothing instead of disrobing during their treatment. Shiatsu can be performed to clients on a futon, on the floor, in a chair, or on a table. Shiatsu tables are lower to allow the therapist to apply her weight as opposed to relying on strength. Theoretically shiatsu is also a unique from massage as some approaches focus on treatment through the meridian energy system, others on a deep physiological understanding of specific points on the body.
