Zen Shiatsu [shee-aht-soo]

is a healing art originating in Japan rooted in Chinese Medicine. Shiatsu means “finger pressure” and uses fingers, thumbs, and palms on designated points and channels to engage the body’s innate ability to heal.

Shiatsu is also known as acupuncture without needles. Fingers instead of needles are used on specific points and has a positive effect on the body’s physical structure as well as our mental and emotional state.


Each treatment is individually tailored based on your current state of health, energy levels and any symptoms you might be experiencing. Shiatsu promotes the body’s natural healing powers and having regular Shiatsu treatments is excellent for restoring and maintaining health and wellness.

Shiatsu is done fully clothed in loose comfortable clothing. Avoid wearing skirts and jeans. Avoid large meals 2 hours before treatment.
