ki In traditional Asian medicine the belief is there is a vital energy (ki) which maintains and nurtures our physical body, mind and spirit. This Ki flows throughout the body through meridians which form nterconnected pathways linking the organs, skin, muscles and bones in the body.
When the Ki stops flowing freely it produces symptoms of poor mental and physical health. When the Ki is rebalanced with the stimulation from Shiatsu massage the mental and physical body is strengthened. The origin of Shiatsu Japanese massage dates back some 8000 years. The characters making up the word Shiatsu mean finger Shi and pressure Atsu and is a form of acupressure.
