Shiatsu massage

The shiatsu massage is a Japanese technique to heal the body by opening channels of energy along the meridians and stretching the ligaments for maximum flexibility. The technique also includes pressure points and compressions. It is also beneficial for people who are experiencing arthritis pain because it loosens the joints and warms up the muscles.

Shiatsu Massage Oakland CAWe at Magical Transformations are very experienced at shiatsu massage. People believe it alleviates disorders such as depression, anxiety, stiffness, headaches, arthritis, nausea, cramps, or pulled muscles. Our Oakland therapists will make you feel flying. This Japanese equivalent of the Chinese method of acupressure comes from the Japanese words “shi” and “atsu,” meaning “finger pressure.” Shiatsu massages are normally done fully clothed and involve pressing points on the body and stretching and opening of the energy meridians.

Shiatsu is somewhat related to acupuncture, which is a form of anesthesia and therapy used in Chinese hospitals for surgery. You are always welcome to visit my Oakland studio and try Magical Transformations’s different massage techniques.

Shiatsu is by far the best-known form of massage therapy. The Shiatsu message treatment has several benefits. It can promote circulation of the blood and the flow of lymphatic fluid. Shiatsu works on the nervous system to decrease strain and release deep-rooted tension from both the tendons and muscles. It also helps to eliminate waste toxins from the body tissues. Shiatsu stimulates the nervous system and helps mobilize the immune systems of our bodies. This ensures increased capacity for healing and faster recuperating powers.

Shiatsu massage is great for relaxation, tension release and pain reduction. It focuses on relaxing the body, loosening the joints and calming the mind. For your shiatsu massage there are no lotions or oils used and you will keep your clothes on the entire time, so wear something comfortable and flexible.
