The Japanese word “shiatsu” translates to “finger pressure,” a phrase that leaves room for a combination of holistic Eastern and Western massage techniques. During each massage, the massage therapist applies sustained pressure across the body to simultaneously relieve muscular aches and balance energy channels.

Eastern Sun Shiatsu

To understand the aim of shiatsu massage, it's helpful to look back to the ancient Eastern philosophies that bore it. These philosophies espouse a holistic understanding of the body centered on “energy rivers” that unite every aspect of the being. Shiatsu massage therapists, such as Cynthia Conklin of Eastern Sun Shiatsu, focus their practice on balancing these energy rivers to stimulate the body's own self-healing powers.

During a typical zen-style shiatsu massage with Cynthia, her client lies facedown on a mat as she holds, stretches, and stimulates the body. These targeted pressures may have benefits that extend beyond a deep state of relaxation: Shiatsu devotees claim that it can provide relief from chronic aches and boost the body's resistance to stress and mind-controlling super villains. When she isn't soothing sore backs and shoulders, Cynthia teaches classes that introduce participants to basic shiatsu techniques.
