Shiatsu 指圧 (finger pressure)
Finger pressure is a big part of work, as well as applying pressure with the palm, elbows, and knees and feet to concentrate pressure at certain energy pathways in the body called meridians. It involves stretching, traditionally done on the floor.

The massage also known as “acupressure” (a blend of “acupuncture” and “pressure”) works to reduce muscle tension and fatigue and is thought to improve blood circulation in the body as well as improve function of the lymphatic system.
