Shiatsu Massage

Shiatsu is a no-oil massage technique from Japan, which uses different forms of hand & finger movements, such as pressing, kneading, tapping, soothing, and stretching, and focuses on your overall health and wellness. It is a form of massage that uses light, comfortable clothing and finger pressure to work on the internal energy system to promote better coordination and increased range of motion. If you seek ultimate relaxation and stress relief through a soothing therapeutic session, Spa Aura wellness spa in NYC should be your destination to maintain wellness and boost vitality.

Benefits of Shiatsu

Shiatsu originated in Japan as a therapeutic massage for overall well being, focusing on reducing stress by releasing energy blockages and thus providing better relaxation for the body and mind.

Whether you feel muscle stiffness or seek remedy for other stress-related disorders, such as headache, anxiety, insomnia, fibromyalgia, joint pain, or low back pain, Shiatsu massage can be an effective technique for a range of emotional and musculoskeletal conditions.

The therapy focuses on removing energy blockages in the body by realigning meridian points, balancing the energy flow and providing a calming effect on the mind and body. Specific techniques are applied with fingers, knuckles, elbows, thumbs, and palms on the areas of the body where energy is low or deficient.

Is Shiatsu Same as Acupuncture

Often confused with acupuncture, Shiatsu follows a different technique from the former, though both methods are based on the Chinese meridian system and focus on energy blocks in the body. Both schools of alternative therapy believe that it is due to the energy blocks that result in disease and thus focus on unblocking and balancing the energy flow.

One major difference is that while acupuncture uses needles on body’s meridian points, Shiatsu focuses on applying continuous firm pressure, stretching, and body extension to release energy and reintroduce optimal flow of energy.

Shiatsu therapist at the Aura Wellness Spa in Midtown NYC may use knees and feet to apply the right amount of pressure on the energy blocks. They walk on the client’s back to release pressure and unblock energy blockages.
