You may know that Shiatsu massage is one of many different types of massage treatments, but you may not know what treatments are required. What exactly is Shiatsu massage therapy, and how does it help people get treated? Shiatsu practice originated in Japan based on traditional Chinese medicine with elements of Western treatments, according to the Shiatsu Association. It amplifies the body’s ability to heal itself.
What is Shiatsu massage?
Shiatsu massage therapy relies on the use of fingers, thumbs and palms to apply pressure to different areas of the body surface to help heal common diseases and conditions, and correct the imbalance in the body. The pressure exerted on points on the body promotes energy flow and adjusts the discord throughout the patient’s body. In addition to being a profoundly relaxing experience, Shiatsu helps to reduce stress, treat pain and illness, and contribute to the patient’s overall health and wellbeing.
Principle of operation
Shiatsu regulates the activity of the nervous system automatically and stimulates the circulatory, lymphatic and hormonal systems. Bad postures, joint problems, sprains, arthritis, sciatica, acute and chronic neck and back pain, sinusitis and bronchitis can be treated with Shiatsu.
This massages are suitable for anyone
According to an annual survey conducted by the American Massage Therapy Association, more than 39 million Americans have received a massage. More than half – 53 percent – who have discussed massage with their health care providers say their doctors recommend massage therapy. Massage has been shown to reduce blood pressure and heart rate while increasing endorphins, the body’s natural painkillers. Shiatsu is one of the types, or methods, of massage therapy to choose from.
This massage uses techniques similar to other treatments such as osteopathy, lymphatic drainage and physiotherapy. However, Shiatsu practitioners attribute physical conditions and illnesses and imbalances in energy flow throughout the body, helping to distinguish diagnosis and treatment from other massage therapies such as Hot stone massage, Aroma Massage, Swedish Massage
Shiatsu works to improve overall health by affecting the internal energy system. Therapy often leads to increased range of motion and improved coordination. Used as a main or complementary therapy, Shiatsu incorporates acupuncture and stretching techniques to restore muscle and bone structure.
