|Zen Shiatsu ; is a Japanese traditional healing art with a philosophical and practicing basis in Zen principles that seeks to promote and maintain wellness by encouraging the balanced flow of vital life energy (ki=chi=qi) throughout the body. In Shiatsu, all 14 of the body's meridians are stimulated through precise applications of acupressure by way of palms, feet, forearms, knees, and thumbs, with stretches and joint mobilizations. Zen Shiatsu is the most effective non-diagnostic (nonjudgmental) and non-invasive (gentle yet firm) style of Shiatsu.
