Shiatsu Massage Therapy makes use of the traditional acupuncture points (Meridian points) of Oriental Medicine’s healing. Massage therapy and the meridian network provides life giving and life-sustaining energy to every part of the human body. It is this network that connects all the organs, tissues and cells in the body.
One ancient scientific definition is that Shiatsu Massage Therapy calms an overactive sympathetic nervous system. When the sympathetic nervous system is calmed there is an improvement in circulation, and immediately relieve is felt in stiff deep tissue muscles through out the body. Shiatsu Massage Therapy is an excellent choice for alleviating stress levels in the body and mind.
