The heart of shiatsu is like pure maternal affection; the pressure of the hands caresses the springs of life to flow. —Tokujiro Namikoshi

WHAT IS SHIATSU?

A method of treating illness with digital compression

In Japanese, shiatsu (指圧) means "finger pressure."

The Japanese Ministry of Health and Welfare states, "Shiatsu therapy is a form of manipulation administered by the thumbs, fingers, and palms without the use of any instrument, mechanical or otherwise, to apply pressure to the human skin, correct internal malfunctioning, promote and maintain health and treat specific diseases."

When a part of a body is sluggish or in pain, the natural reaction is to press or rub it with the hand. This reaction is probably the true origin of shiatsu therapy.
