Licensed massage therapist Caitrin Rames applies pressure to specific zones to encourage balance of the body's energy with traditional shiatsu techniques created more than 3,000 years ago. Before each treatment, Caitrin checks the body's six pulses to determine strengths, weaknesses, imbalances, and favorite jell-o flavor. Then, she targets specific pressure points to relieve pain, soothe tension, and ease migraine discomfort. The treatments can also treat pregnancy discomfort and foster control of labor pains. Shiatsu’s acupressure technique, unlike spa massages, eschews long strokes for targeted pressure, and patients may choose to remain fully clothed for comfort or for quick getaways.

Licensed massage therapist Caitrin Rames, LMT, specializes in shiatsu bodywork, a form of massage that focuses on balancing the body's chi in order to treat internal ailments and imbalances. Rooted in traditional Chinese medicine, shiatsu massage employs focused pressure along the body's meridians to heal backs strained from kneeling in rice paddies or from pole vaulting over the Great Wall. In addition to her flagship shiatsu technique, Caitrin also soothes muscles with cranial-sacral-release therapy and pregnancy massages for expectant mothers.
