Hello my name is Rebecca Herrick and I am with Everything Peaceful in Wilmington, North Carolina. I'm a licensed massage therapist. I practice the shiatsu. Today I am going to talk about how to perform shiatsu. There is a couple of different techniques that separate shiatsu from other types of massage therapy basically what they are usually shiatsu is traditionally done on the floor on a mat with the client fully clothed in comfortable clothing. The practitioner uses their body as leverage and uses a leaning gentle pressure on the client's body in order to release tension and blockages in what traditionally is called meridians throughout the body which help to balance the body into a state of wellbeing. A couple different techniques, specifically one is called two handed connectedness whereas you have one hand that stays stationary and the other hand moves down along the meridian and it is a seesaw action so basically just moving your weight from one hand to the next in an even distribution. Basically that is how you perform shiatsu.
