What is Shiatsu?

The theme is health.
We heal our customers' hearts and bodies.

Please entrust us with your health. "The heart of shiatsu is like a mother's heart, pressing brings forth the spring of life." I have received teachings from the late Tokujirou Naminokoshi, the founder of the Japan Shiatsu School, and have been spreading shiatsu in the United States for over 40 years. Amidst the proliferation of many massage and manual therapy establishments, we adhere to the traditional fundamentals of shiatsu and strive to provide a heartfelt shiatsu, pressing one point at a time, to be of service in maintaining your health.

    People with the following symptoms often come for shiatsu:

  • Those with chronic lower back pain: Many people with chronic lower back pain, including sudden lower back pain, come to us. They have been suffering from the same symptoms for years, such as feeling heavy in the lower back, difficulty sitting or standing up, and discomfort when walking. The surprising effectiveness of shiatsu treatment is evident to everyone. Shiatsu targets the stiffness (contraction or atrophy) of muscles around the hip joint caused by years of unnatural posture and movement. It helps to release discomfort from chronic lower back pain by pinpointing and loosening these areas, restoring the flexibility and balance of the muscles that humans naturally possess.

  •  Those with severe neck and shoulder stiffness: People who spend long hours staring at a computer at work and continue the same posture at home with computers and smartphones often experience severe stiffness in the neck and shoulders. Unconsciously adopting a forward-leaning posture with the chin jutting out, many individuals end up with neck, shoulders, and back stiffness due to poor posture.

  •  Those with temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ): A recent increase is observed in individuals experiencing symptoms such as a clicking sound in the jaw, a popping sound when opening the mouth, and difficulty opening the mouth. Various causes include diligent efforts, excessive use of computers or smartphones, excessive exercise, parenting, and more. Most people with TMJ disorders also suffer from severe headaches, neck pain, and shoulder stiffness. Significant improvement is often achieved by receiving full-body shiatsu along with jaw relaxation.
