Shiatsu is a physical healing practice that originates from Japan. The practise consists of pressure on the body of the receiver with the hand, palm and thumb as well as joint rotations and stretches. Through pressure and movement, the energy in the body is brought into flow, promoting and strengthening the body’s own healing abilities.
