Shiatsu is a form of natural healing based on principles similar to Acupuncture, where pressure is used instead of needles to act on pressure points and meridians. It combines manipulative techniques, including stretching, rocking and holding, with pressure which may be applied using thumbs, fingers, palms, forearms and elbows. It is a holistic therapy, working to stimulate harmony in body, mind and spirit.

How it works
Vital energy (known as Ki in Japanese) flows through the body in a series of channels called meridians. For many different reasons Ki can stop flowing freely and this then produces a symptom. Shiatsu helps to rebalance the flow of Ki in the body through touch.
