The SHIATSUof shi fingers and atsu pressure, consists of the pressure of the thumbs, hands but sometimes also elbows, feet and knees on precise paths associated with gentle stretching and mobilization. Japanese massageShiatsu is traditionally practiced on the floor on natural fibre clothing. It rests on the same bases as the traditional Chinese medicine. It intervenes on points, the "tsubos", located along "meridians", invisible but perceptible channels where the "chi" (ki, qi) circulates, translated by the energy, the breath, covering both physical and psychic functions. Our way of life as well as our way of being influence the distribution of this energy in our body. This energy can be insufficient, excessive, stagnant or blocked, causing more or less long term pain, disorders or illnesses.
Preserve, improve, recover health, mitigate the effects of an illness. Shiatsu balancing this energy is an excellent means of prevention.
