Shiatsu massage applies pressure to specific "pressure points" rather than stroking muscles. This type of massage is performed using thumbs, hands, elbows, or knees to apply pressure and release deep muscle tension. The massage therapists at Duncan Chiropractic Group are highly experienced in providing shiatsu massages for pain relief, muscle relaxation, and stress reduction.
The roots of shiatsu massage date back to ancient Japan, where it was utilized to promote good health. Alone or paired with our chiropractic adjustments, shiatsu massage is beneficial for many different conditions. For example, shiatsu massages are ideal for treating a variety of issues including muscle and joint pain, neck and back pain, tension, stress, fibromyalgia, headaches, sciatica, fatigue, menstrual pain, posture problems, and more.
