What is Shiatsu?
Shiatsu, which means “finger pressure,” is a type of massage that was developed in Japan. It is said to have been developed by a Buddhist monk back in the 6th century.
According to traditional Chinese medicine, ill health is caused by an imbalance within a person’s qi or life force. Thus, the goal of a Shiatsu practitioner is to restore balance within the qi. The therapist will use their fingers, palms, and thumbs to put pressure on specific parts of the client’s body, depending on their needs.
Like many types of massage, Shiatsu can relieve pain and promote relaxation. It is also said to stimulate the circulatory and lymphatic systems and boost the immune system. Shiatsu can help people with sciatica, insomnia, arthritis, and sinusitis.
What is deep tissue massage?
Deep tissue massage uses many of the same strokes seen in Swedish massage. As the name suggests, the therapist will be concentrating on deeper tissues like the fascia (connective tissues) and muscles.
Deep tissue massage is often used to help people recover from sports injuries. It can also help clients suffering from chronic pain caused by conditions like fibromyalgia, carpal tunnel syndrome, or sciatica.
The therapist will typically start by warming up the client’s body with gentle strokes. Later, they will concentrate on the problem areas. In many cases, they will try to break up knots and adhesions; the latter are bands of stiff and painful tissue.
