Shiatsu is a Japanese method to gain positive effects over the whole body. It is based on the theories of the traditional Chinese medicine and is working with the techniques of acupuncture. Therefore, several points, all over your body are defined to be influencing your body-parts (not only in your fingers or hands). In your hands are e.g. areas effecting your eyes, your liver, your kidneys and much more.

Before you go and try to find more about these points, do I recommend you for the best results to look for a professional shiatsu practitioner to assist you. Furthermore does Shiatsu develop its full potential by practicing it regularly and not only once or twice.

It is recommended to practice Shiatsu in an atmosphere where you feel comfortable and are able to relax and calm down. Your body and your soul should be able to get a rest. After each session should you do some stretching or other relaxing exercises in order to get the best results.

If you develop any kind of stress, please stop the exercise immediately and consult a physician. This is why, it is best to directly exercise Shiatsu with an experienced practitioner in the beginning. They supervise you doing everything correctly. Your health is worth more than a single exercise.

In the following will I show you a single and simple exercise that might support you to relax.
