Point pressure method

In order to establish the perfect balance between the body, the mind and the emotions, the Shiatsu massage method consists of exerting pressure with the fingers in specific points of the body to relieve ailments and cure pathologies.

This Japanese massage is performed mainly by supporting the thumbs, but therapeutic pressure variations have also been developed with the hands, feet, elbows and knees.
