Acupressure Shiatsu Therapy: Acupressure Shiatsu Therapy is an individualized treatment to help address imbalances (emotional or physical pain or illness) in the body stemming from blockages in the flow of energy. It is also a great treatment to help maintain health and wellness in the body. The client is fully clothed, and the practitioner will apply pressure to specific acupoints along meridians in the body. This therapy will help awaken your own body’s healing capabilities, and will focus on the whole person, not just one symptom. Shiatsu, which means finger pressure in Japanese, is acupuncture without the needles!
