Shiatsu: The Art of Energy Manipulation

During a shiatsu session, you’ll lie facedown on a soft mat on the floor as the therapist applies sustained pressure across your body. Read on to learn what else to expect from a shiatsu session.

Tokujiro Namikoshi was stunned. He was alone in a hotel suite with Marilyn Monroe. But there she was, “wearing nothing but Chanel No. 5,” as he later recalled. Marilyn’s new husband, Joe DiMaggio, was out, and she was looking for something only Namikoshi could provide—shiatsu, the holistic massage technique he’d recently invented that focused on balancing the body’s energy channels to stimulate self healing.

Shiatsu literally translates to finger pressure, a phrase that resists narrow definitions and has opened the door to various interpretations. Modern-day practitioners incorporate techniques from Chinese medicine and Western pathology.

In a typical shiatsu massage session, a (fully clothed) patient lies facedown on a soft mat positioned on the floor as the therapist applies sustained pressure across the body, paying particular attention to body parts that are often ignored, such as the thumbs and hands. The varying pressure and stretching direct energy toward the abdomen, enhancing circulation in order to dissipate tension.
