Traditional Shiatsu is performed on the floor, while Integrative Shiatsu is performed on a massage table. At the Hands-of-Faith, we have integrated various Shiatsu techniques into our Signature Massage in order to provide you with the amazing benefits of Shiatsu: deep muscle and tissue relaxation, stress reduction and management, release of toxins from the body, disease prevention, increased flexibility, improved blood circulation, reduced blood pressure, reduced mental anxiety, calms nervousness, and increased mental and spiritual awareness. There are no needle pokes involved with Shiatsu. Massage techniques like tapping, squeezing, rubbing, and applied pressure are applied along the meridians to unblock energy blockages and reintroduce the optimal flow of ki.
Various Shiatsu techniques we utilize are shown in the video below.
