Shiatsu Massage

Light Center Massage Hillcrest San Diego

Shiatsu means "finger pressure" in Japanese. Based on traditional Chinese medical concepts, this technique follows the channels of energy along the body. This energy, called "Qi" or "Ki," can become blocked in its flow. The result is an apparent excess of energy in an "organ system" or a clear deficiency of this life-giving force. The function of Shiatsu is to release blockages, thus allowing an even flow of Qi throughout the body.

An even flow of energy means that the organs of the body work well in coordination with each other and with the rest of the body. This creates a balance. Balance is the essence of health. Shi'atsu can be a great aid in helping the body work efficiently. And a fully functioning body helps maintain emotional stability.
