Shiatsu is a body-based therapy developed in Japan in the early 1900s. It uses “finger pressure” that consists of stretching, kneading, pressing, pulling, and tapping by a provider who uses their hands (palms and fingers or thumbs), elbows, knees, and feet. Its roots are ancient, consistent with the philosophy of Chinese medicine and the concepts of Yin/Yang, meridians, the five elements and Qi (or Chi energy). Shiatsu is most commonly used to treat is musculoskeletal and psychological problems.
