A unique massage
The Shiatsu massage is rooted in traditional Chinese medicine. It was originally developed by the Japanese, beginning in the early 14th century. The word shiatsu means ‘finger pressure’. Emblematic of Asian massages, Shiatsu is governed by the concept of a flow of energy which permeates the human body. The objective of this form of massage is to counter the stagnation of this energy, thereby allowing it to circulate freely throughout the body and remain in balance.
A massage designed to relieve back pain
A Shiatsu massage consists of the application of physical pressure on targeted areas of the body in order to relieve pain, release a muscle or revitalise the functioning of an organ.
