Traditional Japanese massage has several techniques, one of the most popular is Shiatsu. Shiatsu technique is a technique of pressing fingers on certain parts of the body. In some cases, the palm of the hand is used.
Prolonged stress loads lead to an imbalance in the human body, some areas begin to act as "blockers" of the proper functioning of various internal organs. Accordingly, a person feels unwell, discomfort and soreness against the background of rapid fatigue. The stress that affects a person for a long time also adversely affects the psychological state of a person, and, accordingly, his working capacity.
There is not a single person who would not use such a simple technique for relieving tension - like lightly pressing fingers on the temples, eyebrows, etc. Actually, this is the secret, with such an impact, tense areas relax, excess lactic acid is removed from the muscles, which in turn leads to the launch of internal recovery processes - this is a special case. Shiatsu masters have gone on to develop the technique to the level of practical therapy, and today shiatsu technique is regulated as a licensed medical therapy by the Ministry of Health and Welfare of Japan.
This technique is widely practiced in our country and, as in every case, it is important that a non-real specialist is involved in it. Beware of fakes! In Japan, a Shiatsu practitioner must be licensed by the Ministry of Health and Welfare, for this the master must study for at least 3 years or 2200 hours in an educational program.
