Shiatsu translated from Japanese to English is finger pressure. Similar to acupressure, or acupuncture, but without the needles! Shiatsu is a type of Massage Therapy that goes beyond muscle manipulation. When performing a Shiatsu session I will take the whole body into consideration when first doing a "diagnosis." I will then work along the Meridians, which are energy channels or lines within the body. Shiatsu can be very mind opening and energizing. Shiatsu can be done as a session just on its own or incorporated into a regular Massage Therapy session. Give it a try.
