Techniques Used in Shiatsu Massage
During a Shiatsu massage session, the practitioner will use their fingers, thumbs, palms, and elbows to apply pressure to specific points on the body. These points are called “tsubos” or “acupressure points” and are believed to be connected to various organs and systems in the body.
Here are some of the techniques used in Shiatsu massage:
- Pressure: The practitioner will use their fingers, thumbs, palms, and elbows to apply pressure to the tsubos on the body. They may use varying degrees of pressure, depending on the client’s needs.
- Stretching: In addition to pressure, the practitioner may also use stretching techniques to help release tension in the muscles and improve flexibility.
- Joint Mobilization: The practitioner may also use joint mobilization techniques to help improve joint mobility and reduce stiffness.
