Shiatsu is a form of body work generally done fully clothed on a futon. Shiatsu actually means finger pressure. A practitioner will perform a basic diagnosis of what is happening for that client and then either give a calming, slow, deep treatment or if needed, stretching and gentle rocking to open and release stagnation or tension.
Pressure points maybe used to invigorate or bring energy or aid circulation.
It's usually full body although some areas can be targeted specifically if needed. I tend to work a lot on helping people feel supported, held, calm and relaxed, really working on settling the nervous system . Often there is trauma or shock locked into the body mind and shiatsu is very good for giving a safe secure place and time to help resolve those issues.
