Shiatsu Services

Shiatsu is a form of massage from Japan unlike other forms of massage. There are no oils or lotions used. Client wearing loose comfortable fitting clothes like yoga pants with a t-shirt. The treatments are traditionally done on a futon on the floor. If you have difficulty getting down or up from the floor a massage table can be used.

Shiatsu means finger pressure. It includes pressure applied from the thumbs, palms, elbows and possibly knees along the meridians or information pathways located in the fascia. Think Acupuncture without needles.
