FAQs About Shiatsu Courses

Is Shiatsu massage good for you?

Yes, it certainly is. Shiatsu is a holistic form of manual therapy that alleviates a variety of emotional and physical conditions. It helps in relieving stress, musculoskeletal pain, anxiety, headaches, digestive issues and joint pain.

Does Shiatsu hurt?

No, it doesn't hurt. Shiatsu is a gentle massage technique that employs finger pressure to stimulate the meridian systems of the body, eliminate pain and improve a person's overall wellbeing. Before the therapy session, the therapist conducts a short interview with the client to discuss their issues and the level of pressure which the client is comfortable with.

What is the difference between shiatsu and Swedish massage?

Swedish massage, otherwise known as relaxation massage therapy, involves gliding strokes that aim to relax the body. Shiatsu, on the other hand, employs finger pressure to balance the flow of qi, or energy, throughout the body and eliminate pain and other conditions that are associated with it.
