Shiatsu is not a medicine in the Western meaning of the word, but rather a "preventive medicine", a natural hygiene, a form of manual acupuncture (without needles), acting on physical and mental health. It stimulates the body’s natural defences and thus tends to prevent diseases.

How does shiatsu work ?

In Shiatsu, the giver applies pressures on the receiver using his body weight from its centre of gravity (belly), and then moves along meridians. Shiatsu is a vertical touch (as opposed to most other massages that use an horizontal touch) going through static moments. Once energy circulation has been restored, it improves general body health and relieves aches and pains.
