What is Shiatsu?

Shiatsu was created by Tokujiro Namikoshi Sensei over 70 years ago and it has been approved by the Japan Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare as a therapy (healing) and medical treatment.

Shiatsu is a hands-on therapy that uses exclusively thumbs, other fingers and palms of the hand to improve the body’s functions and draw out its natural self-healing powers.
