Shiatsu is a style of bodywork developed in Japan. Its goal is to restore the healthy flow of energy throughout the body.
It is usually performed on a mat on the floor. The practitioner will use his fingers and thumbs to apply pressure to specific points on the body’s energy pathways, known as meridians. He often uses other techniques such as rocking, stretches and joint rotations.
