What is Shiatsu Massage Therapy and How It Can Help With Chronic Issues

If you have never tried a shiatsu massage, you don’t want to miss out!  It is trigger point therapy that not only feels good, can relax your tired or tense muscles, but it can also help relieve chronic symptoms like pain, anxiety, stomach issues, intestinal problems and so much more.  In fact, shiatsu massage therapists can discover a lot about what is ailing you from simply touching your stomach!

Whenever I go to Tokyo, I book an appointment with Megumi Okubo, my Shiatsu massage therapist.  I got to sit down and talk with her about shiatsu, its health benefits as well as some self-shiatsu techniques.   Shiatsu stimulates your parasympathetic nervous system (the rest and recovery mode of the nervous system).  It promotes deep relaxation which assists the body’s own healing systems to function more effectively and efficiently.
