Definition

Shiatsu, the most widely known form of acupressure, has been practiced for over a thousand years. In Japanese, shiatsu literally means "finger pressure,” which is how it is performed. Shiatsu uses rhythmic pressure from 3 to 10 seconds on specific points along the body's meridians by using the fingers, hands, elbows, knees and sometimes feet, to unblock and stimulate the flow of energy. A session may also include gentle stretching and range­of­motion manipulations
