Shiatsu is a type of massage that is rooted in Japanese meridian theory. It is performed fully clothed, and it is best to wear comfy, yoga type clothing for this type of massage. It involves motions such as gentle rocking of the body, arms, and legs, as well as pressing along muscles and meridians, and in some cases gentle passive stretching. It is very relaxing to receive and is wonderful for chronic pain, chronic fatigue, and patients who are very sensitive to needles.
Acupressure massage is a treatment utilizes massage instead of needles, to apply direct pressure to specific meridians and points that are indicated for your condition. A great option for kids, those who have difficulty tolerating needles, and our more sensitive and depleted patients.
