Shiatsu engages our ability to self-heal through the stimulation of ki (vital energy). As a form of oriental medicine like acupuncture, shiatsu stimulate ki in the body's meridian system.

Stimulation is applied using different quantities of pressure through the thumb, finger and palm. Pressure is varied according to the body's needs; sometime gentle and calming, sometimes deeply stimulating. Techniques may include the use of elbows, knees and feet, stretches and light manipulation.
