Shiatsu is a traditional healing art based on Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). It combines massage, stretching, and gentle physical pressure along meridian channels and pressure points. Acupuncture also uses these meridians and pressure points to balance the body's energy (known as "Ki" or "Chi"). Each meridian relates to an organ function.
