Shiatsu is a traditional method of massage therapy used in Japan since ancient times. Various methods of Japanese Shiatsu massage arose long before the Chinese acupuncture techniques have been established. The first official mention of the Shiatsu massage in the literature sources appeared in 1915.

Doctor Tokujiro Namikoshi, the founder of Japan Shiatsu College, developed a special classification of Shiatsu therapy, which relied on the fundamental knowledge of human physiology and anatomy. He systemized the preexisted healing experience and added a special technique. And, essentially, Shiatsu is based on applying pressure on the body using the palms and thumbs to help the body to recover.

In the early 1980s, Shiatsu massage therapy found their followers in North America and Europe. In the present days, the system developed by Namikoshi has a legal status, is widely spread and popular around the world.

The Essence and Basic Principles of Shiatsu

Essentially, Japanese Shiatsu massage technique is based on creating pressure on the human body with the help of palms and fingers.
