Shiatsu is a Japanese-oriented therapy. Shiatsu means "finger pressure". The therapy combines the application of pressure on specific points along the body's meridian with massage. It can be performed with fingers, palms, elbows, or even a knee. The goal is to stimulate the body's innate healing and balancing mechanisms by stimulating the autonomic nervous system (source: Shiatsu Therapy Association of Ontario). While similar to acupressure, diagnostic methods may be different.
