About Zen Shiatsu

Shiatsu is a Japanese system of healing and health maintenance based on the body's natural energy called Qi. Shiatsu literally means "finger pressure". Shiatsu is the official name of remedial massage used in Japan.

Zen shiatsu is a style of Shiatsu, developed by Shizuto Masunaga, focusing on the meridian system rather than specific points. It is dynamic in nature as it includes an assessment of body energies in order to tailor each session to the receiver's specific needs. Connecting with the movement of energy in the body helps promote over all health.

(The word Watsu originally came from combining "water" and "Shiatsu".)
