As a neurological condition, MS causes fatigue, difficulty walking, holding onto things with hands, muscle weakness, painful muscle spasms, headaches, vision problems, digestion and urination problems, sleep issues and emotional stress. Shiatsu releases pain and fatigue while increasing mobility and physical and mental balance. Using a variety of techniques including varying pressure on limbs and joints, passive stretches and abdominal massage helps to relieve pain, stiffness of muscles and joints. While Shiatsu is traditionally practiced on a futon, you can be treated on a massage table, on a bed, or in a chair, including a wheelchair or walker.
