What is Shiatsu Massage?
"Shiatsu" means "finger pressure in Japanese" and in therapeutic medicine it is a traditional massage method that has been practiced for centuries in Asia. What are the benefits of this practice on the body and mind, and how to practice it at home easily?
Definition of Shiatsu
Thanks to the pressure of fingers, elbows, palms or even feet, the Shiatsu practitioner unlocks the patient's muscular blockages and helps energy fluids to circulate better in the body. Shiatsu relies on acupressure, or the fact of pressing on a meridian of the body to unblock the nodes which would prevent the energy from circulating well in the body.
During a Shiatsu massage, blood and fluid circulation is restored, and muscle blockages are released. The gradual pressure exerted during the massage on the acupressure points of the body allows maximum relaxation and a unique moment of relaxation. Shiatsu therefore acts on both the body and the mind, and its benefits are numerous. 💆♀
