What is Shiatsu?

Acupressure dance, Shiatsu is an oriental technique of Japanese origin. It consists of pressing different points of the body following lines of energy channels spread throughout the body.
This pressure is done with the fingers and the palm of the hand directly on the patient. The goal is to rebalance our body and our emotions.
This pressure technique is accompanied by harmonious and well-executed movements by the therapist, which requires great training, knowledge and discipline.
In order for you to understand this technique in a simple way, you must imagine a human body crossed by 20 lines and within these lines points creating a map of points on the body. Shiatsu works on blocking some of these channels or points. Blocking these channels causes health problems both physically, mentally and emotionally.
Professional Shiatsu therapists will perform an exam on the patient before starting the session in order to release these blocks.

What is the origin of Shiatsu?

In the mountains of northern China more than 2,500 years ago, Taoist monks practiced Do-In (or Tao Jinn) a conjunction of exercises and massages that primarily focused on strengthening life force, detoxifying and rejuvenating. Over the years these techniques were taking shape in Qi Gong, Tai Chi and different disciplines of martial arts.
The objective of these was to influence on the (KI) An internal force within every human being that connects him with the universe. Represented in the found symbologies of yin and yang.
But is Shiatsu Japanese?
Correct, in the cultural exchanges between China and Japan approximately 1800 years ago, this culture was sown in Japan until approximately 1000 years ago it began to be exercised in synergy with the healing techniques of Japan until it took its own identity with the union of two cultures . The Anma where we can recognize a set of techniques of stretching, rotations, frictions, pinching, tapping.
The Anma was a must study during the Edo era.
With the opening of Japan to the 20th century, it embraced conventional medicine and relegated Anma to a minor therapy destined to stretching and folk rituals.
It was not until 1919 when we received the first Shiatsu reference in the book edited by master Tamai Tempaku. In this document we can see how the union of the Anma with abdominal pressure massage and Western anatomy is discussed. Shiatsu begins.
It is in the middle of the century when the two main currents of Shiatsu as we now know it awaken.
Master Tokujiro Namikoshi and Master Shizuto Masunaga.
From here in 1955, Shiatsu is recognized by the Japanese Ministry of Health and is practiced in perfect harmony with conventional medicine.
