Shiatsu in San Luis Obispo

Shiatsu is a form of acupressure, based on Acupuncture theory, Shiatsu aims to move stuck Chi. Chi is simply the various forms of energy that run through-out the body, and when chi is stuck, there is pain, or tension. To move stuck qi, shiatsu utilizes a combination of gentle rocking, presses, and stretches.

While Shiatsu is based on energy rather than anatomy, chi maps happen to coincide very nicely with common areas of tension. The result is a whole body massage that leaves the recipient feeling not only relaxed and tension-free, but often with a sense of harmony or increased energy.
