What is Shiatsu massage?

Shiatsu Massage is a Japanese healing art that was discovered almost two thousand years ago. The word ‘Shiatsu’ translates to ‘finger pressure’. Perhaps the term ‘Shiatsu’ was used to name this form of massage because finger pressure makes up the bulk of what actually goes into a Shiatsu massage.

Shiatsu is based upon something known as the ‘meridian system’ of energy. These are pathways or ‘energy channels’ running throughout the human body. Shiatsu is, in this regard, very similar to acupuncture. Shiatsu pre-dates acupuncture. In fact, Shiatsu was around even before needles were invented.

It’s believed Shiatsu massage developed in Japan in the third century AD. The term ‘Shaitsu’ entered the English vocabulary in the 1940s, although this form of massage was first imported into the Western World during the Nineteenth Century.

What happens during a Shiatsu massage?

As well as using the fingers, the massage therapist will also apply pressure with the arms, elbows, feet, knees and palm. All of this effort aims to create as much balance as possible and to free up energy flow throughout your body. When pressure points are targeted along the ‘meridian system’, energy blockages are removed. This helps to re-establish the normal flow of “Ki/Qi/Chi” (force/vital energy).

A Shiatsu massage is traditionally carried out whilst the receiver of the massage lies on the floor. During the massage, gentle manipulation and stretching of the muscles take place. Like acupuncture, the pressure points are targeted during a Shiatsu massage.

Shiatsu massage is recommended if you suffer from either mental or physical ailments. If anything is out of balance, Shiatsu massage will be an excellent investment. The body is believed to be forever striving for balance. However, the body infrequently in balance. Shiatsu Massage is perhaps one of the easiest ways to help jerk your system back into balance.

Shiatsu Massage may be described as a holistic therapy since it views the body as a holistic system, made up of both a mental and physical element. Shiatsu Massage does not aim to target just one part of the body.

Our experienced Shiatsu massage therapists in London seek to understand what is causing you to be out of balance. We take a slightly tailored approach to Shiatsu Massage for each client. Thus, Shiatsu massage may be considered a highly personalised form of massage therapy.

Why would I undertake a Shiatsu massage in London?

Shiatsu massage is recommended for many physical health problems. This includes repetitive-strain disorders and problems arising from a sports injury.
