Shiatsu literally means healing by pressure applied by fingers where SHI means “finger” and ATSU means “pressure”.

You can take advantage of the benefits of this wonderful and effective massage when you come to Padmalaya. This is how Shiatsu therapy is defined by the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare, Japan “Shiatsu technique refers to the use of fingers and the palm of one’s hands to apply pressure to particular sections on the surface of the body for the purpose of correcting the imbalances of the body, and for maintaining and promoting health. It is also a method contributing to the healing of specific illnesses.” It stimulates your naturalself-healingprocesses. When performed properly, Shiatsu is not associated with any significant side effects.

In the Eastern mindset, sickness and ailment are seen as the result of a poor energy flow through the meridians and their associated organs.

Shiatsu massage would therefore act to restore the body’s natural defense system, rebalance the body and put the mind to rest.

The purpose of Shiatsu massage is to remove obstacles that block the flow of energy through the meridians of the body, to restore the body’s natural defense system, rebalance the body and put the mind to rest as it unblocks the flow of energy in the meridians.
