Finger Pressure

Directly translated from Japanese, shiatsu means finger pressure. What makes shiatsu different from other massage types is that it is usually done without any oils or lotions, and most shiatsu massages require you to wear a thin, light layer of clothing.

Shiatsu started in Japan in the early 20th century and has a range of different styles and variations. All styles are rooted in one of three systems that began over one hundred years ago as part of a new interest in traditional Japanese medical therapies such as acupuncture and anma massage.

Who benefits from shiatsu?

The non-invasive nature of shiatsu therapy means that it can benefit a wide range of people dealing with different conditions. In fact, fans of shiatsu suggest that it has both preventative and healing benefits. As well as being used to cure musculoskeletal conditions, shiatsu can also be used to treat a wide range of physical and emotional conditions. Shiatsu can reduce muscle stiffness while at the same time having a positive influence on the nervous system. This makes shiatsu appealing to people who wouldn’t normally turn to massage for pain relief and emotional therapy.

Anew Wellness Spa Shiatsu Massage Session

At the start of every session that we offer, one of our certified therapists will evaluate your overall health to determine what imbalances and you may be experiencing or any conditions you may be suffering with. This step is crucial to provide the most effective therapeutic session. Shiatsu therapists at Anew Wellness Spa will use a range of kneading, tapping and stretching techniques to find the weak energy points in your body. If your energy levels are low, the therapist will use specific and tailored techniques to help you with this problem. On the other hand, if your energy levels are too high, which can cause them to be “wound up,” then they will use different techniques to reduce that your energy level.
