About the Treatments


Shiatsu is a Japanese healing art that is based on Traditional Chinese Medicine. It is given on a mat on the floor with the client wearing loose, comfortable clothing. Shiatsu includes finger pressure, palm pressure, facilitated stretching and range of motion applied to various parts of the body. The same points that are addressed in acupuncture are also used in Shiatsu with applied finger pressure. The goal is to bring more balance and flexibility to the body, mind and spirit.
