Here is our pick for the top venues offering Shiatsu in Adelaide .
As with many massage therapies, Shiatsu originated in Japan and China. It is now readily available here in Adelaide and highly recommended for both relaxation and pain relief.
Shiatsu didn't find its way to the Western world until the 1970s. Since then it has grown in both popularity and accessibility. The word 'shiatsu' actually means 'finger pressure'. Whilst the fingers are definitely used in treatment so too are the therapist's thumbs, hands, elbows and knees.
Shiatsu is a therapy that uses the pressure points or meridians to pinpoint and treat a wide range of conditions. The therapist may also include some gentle stretching and joint rotation. As with many Eastern therapies, the aim is to release any energy blockages in the body.
Shiatsu massage is used to realign the meridian points, thus balancing the qi and allowing positive healing energy to flow freely. This is particularly beneficial for the nervous and immune systems, as well as improving blood circulation.
