What is Iokai Shiatsu ?

Iokai Shiatsu is a manual therapy that complements regular medicine well. Using the thumb, fingers and palms of the hands, the therapist applies pressure on the meridians to enable a free flow of vital life energy through the body. Where needed, he or she will also mobilize and stretch certain joints. By doing this the body’s self-healing ability is strengthened. A Iokai Shiatsu therapist not only treat the client's complaint, but also the human being and the deeper cause behind the complaints.
