About Us

Shiatsu began in Japan in the early 1900s. Modern Shiatsu was recognized as an independent method of treatment in Japan after the establishment of the first Shiatsu college which was founded in 1940. Shiatsu stands for "figure pressure method".

Modern Shiatsu developed into a holistic technique that uses intuitive and spiritual approaches to healing by identifying  ways how to take responsibility for a healthy and happy life in the practitioner's hand. It focuses on health and beauty of the entire body by focusing on sustained rejuvenation.
