Shiatsu is traditionally an Eastern practice of massage. It is based on Chinese meridians which are believed (and studies have yielded results suggesting) to control the flow of energy (qui) throughout the body. Shiatsu is a combination of stretches and kneading techniques, and is customized according to the client. Shiatsu techniques in a Swedish massage are effective at balancing qui and relieving muscle adhesions. Your practitioner may choose to add some Shiatsu techniques during your session, or you can request it. Shiatsu is not currently offered as a separate session.
