"Shiatsu is an acupressure form of massage. The Japanese word literally means "finger pressure". Like acupuncture, Shiatsu works with a system of meridians, which are lines of energy running along the surface of the body. Each meridian relates to a different organ of the body. This energy can actually be shown by measuring changes in electrical resistance. In ill health this energy is out of balance. Some meridians may have too little energy flow, while others may have too much. The goal of Shiatsu is to balance the energies by applying pressure to specific points. When the energy is balanced, often the symptom will disappear."
