Shiatsu is a Japanese word that literally means "finger pressure," and it's also a name for a traditional Japanese style of bodywork. In shiatsu, the practitioner rhythmically applies deep yet tempered pressure to special points and lines on the recipient's body with the intention of facilitating the free and balanced movement of energy or chi and the release of accumulated tension. The result is often a state of deep relaxation and an ensuing sense of renewed vitality. This style of shiatsu is performed with the recipient wearing soft, loose fitting clothing and lying on a traditional futon, or soft mat, on the floor. Some assisted stretching and joint mobilization is also included.
$75 (60 min), $115 (90 min) available weekends only
