This Japanese therapy uses body manipulation such as point pressure, compression, stretching and joint mobilization. Shiatsu, like other Eastern bodywork traditions, aims to balance subtle energy fields in the body similar to acupuncture and acupressure. Shiatsu can treat physical pains—and emotional discomfort such as anxiety, depression and stress.

For shiatsu therapy, make sure to look for a licensed massage therapist with special training in this technique.
