Shiatsu has been practiced for thousands of years, literally meaning "finger pressure" in Japanese. The style is strongly influenced by the Five Element Theory; wood, fire, earth, metal, & water, and the goal to balance these energetic forces.

Qi is life energy that channels through our bodies. This massage is administered while the client is fully clothed, please wear comfortable clothing.
