Zen Shiatsu Massage

Zen Shiatsu massage - also known as Zen Shiatsu therapy - is a hands-on treatment that uses traditional oriental diagnosis and supportive acupressure to balance the energy pathways of your body.

Often referred to as “acupuncture without the needles", Zen Shiatsu is a holistic therapy designed to uplift and harmonize your physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual well-being.

In the Japanese language, shiatsu means "finger pressure". Shiatsu techniques include massages with fingers, thumbs, feet, and palms; assisted stretching; and joint manipulation and mobilization.  To examine a patient, a shiatsu practitioner uses palpation and, sometimes, pulse diagnosis.

At Kelli Howard Zen Medicine, we combine Zen Shiatsu Massage with acupuncture in some packages, to enable us to cater to patients who prefer a combination of treatments.
