Shiatsu is a method of touch therapy that developed in Japan and originated in Chinese medicine. Shiatsu, which means "finger pressure" - is based on the foundations of holistic Chinese medicine, which states that a balance between the body and the mind and the perception of the person as a whole, are the basis for better health. According to this method, illness and pain are perceived as failing physical states, in which the natural balance between body and mind is disturbed. Thus, in order to restore balance, the Shiatsu therapist performs touch therapy to change the existing situation and restore the natural balance to the patient's body.
Shiatsu treatment is based on pressures, manipulations, stretching and motives that encourage the achievement of the desired balance between body and mind. The goal in Shiatsu is to locate the cause of the imbalance in the body and treat it by creating continuous movement and through guidance for a healthy lifestyle - as a preventative medicine. The treatment is performed in full attire and it provides a solution to a wide range of internal physical problems, emotional problems, problems in the skeleton, muscles, joints and more. Before starting the treatment, the Shiatsu therapist performs a preliminary diagnosis and questioning in order to formulate the most appropriate treatment plan for the particular patient.
