What is Shiatsu?
A form of therapy of Japanese origin based on the same principles as acupuncture, in which pressure is applied to certain points on the body using the hands.

Tokujiro Namikoshi discovered the practice which became Shiatsu as a child when his sick mother seemed to feel better when he applied holding pressure to her arthritic limbs. Later in life, he studied medicine in earnest, and coined the term “Shiatsu” to describe the practice he discovered. (circa 1940)
