Many people assume all massages are done in the popular Swedish style which you might experience at a spa or resort. While Swedish massages are popular and effective, there are a host of other massage techniques available which can target specific areas of the body, lead to lasting pain relief and be customized to meet the needs and preferences of any person.

One such technique is called shiatsu massage, and it has been used throughout the world for centuries to help people find relief from their pain and reach a deep state of relaxation. As a certified massage therapist in the Bay Area, I have provided many people with shiatsu massage services and the benefits can be far reaching when using this proven technique.

In the sections to follow, I will answer a few of the most commonly asked questions about the shiatsu massage technique. If you are considering a shiatsu massage, or if you haven’t heard of the technique before, I hope this provides some insight into this technique and helps you understand if it’s right for you.

What is a Shiatsu Massage?

Shiatsu massage has roots in ancient Eastern medical practice, which uses the theory of meridians. This theory held the belief of the entire body being connected by energy channels, which was ahead of its time because modern medicine has proven the link between many of the body’s systems. A shiatsu massage is done by applying pressure to known points of inflection in the body which interact with one another. This application of pressure can loosen muscles, promote a deep feeling of relaxation and help a person find lasting relief.

Does a Shiatsu Massage Hurt?

When people hear the premise of shiatsu massage involves the application of pressure, they assume it is painful. When I perform a shiatsu massage, I aim to do so with my client’s preferences in mind. A shiatsu massage can involve the application of a great deal of pressure, but only if the client is comfortable with pressure and is seeking a deeper massage. Shiatsu massages can be effective with different amounts of pressure, and I seek to provide maximum comfort for my clients. Another advantage of shiatsu massage for many people is the level of personal comfort they feel because these massages are performed with the client fully clothed in a relaxed environment.

What are the Benefits of Shiatsu Massage?

Shiatsu massages are a natural form of healing which uses the body’s connected systems to promote wellness and improve mental health. This type of massage is proven to improve circulation which fosters healing in the body and also leads to greater range of motion in key muscular groups. By their nature, shiatsu massages lead to less tension and can be one of the most relaxing massage techniques you can experience.
