What is Shiatsu - the queen of all massages - how is it performed and what are the benefits?
What is shiatsu massage?
Shiatsu is a massage technique that originates from Japan and has been around for thousands of years. It combines traditional Japanese manual therapies with Western medical knowledge. Health professionals view shiatsu as a form of acupressure, a massage therapy that involves pressing specific points in the body to reduce tension and fatigue by improving blood and lymph circulation.
Shiatsu has its roots in the concept of "qi". In traditional Chinese medicine, "qi" is the vital life force that drives all life's activities. It is believed that health occurs when "qi" flows unobstructed. When the flow of "qi" becomes deficient or blocked, symptoms such as body pain, headaches and digestive issues arise.
Shiatsu is a form of massage in which the practitioner uses the hands, thumb or other body parts to apply direct pressure to various points or channels in the body. It is performed through loose clothing and does not use oils.
What are the benefits of shiatsu foot massage?
Shiatsu foot massage improves circulation, stimulates muscles, reduces tension and relieves pain, primarily in the legs, but it benefits the whole body, energizes the whole organism, stimulates blood circulation and helps the body to eliminate toxins. It has been confirmed that shiatsu foot massage restores vitality, strengthens the immune system and stimulates the body's defense system. Shiatsu is an excellent technique for loosening painful knots, releasing chronic tension and improving circulation, and is a wonderful stress-reliever.
