Shiatsu is a Japanese therapy based on Traditional Chinese Medicine. Literally it means "finger pressure". Shiatsu is often described as 'acupuncture without needles'.

The idea underlying Shiatsu is that energy flows in the body through a series of pathways called meridians. At times, for one reason or another, the energy flow gets out of balance and stops moving smoothly. A dis-ease then appears. It can be just a vague feeling of discomfort or a diagnosed illness.

The aim of a Shiatsu treatment is to rebalance the flow of energy so that it flows smoothly again. As the flow of Ki in the body improves, so does the condition. Shiatsu is a therapy that works on the individual as a complete being. It works both on the physical as well as on the psychological level.
