Shiatsu Course

Aharon Yakovy

Word “shiatsu” means “finger pressure” in Japanese. Shiatsu is an ancient healing art, developed in the Far East and based on the philosophy of the body’s meridians, according to which feelings of fatigue, stress or pain are considered symptoms indicating a lack of harmony in the body. Shiatsu works by bringing the energy system back into balance and in the process also treats these symptoms. The treatment is done by contact using the pads of the thumbs, palms, forearms and knees – along the energy lines (meridians) spread across the body, and is intended to renew a patient’s sense of vitality by using the body’s chi energy (life energy). The treatment helps relieve stress and pain, and helps in the treatment of many physical and mental conditions.
