 The Treatment Session:

~  A Shiatsu session is usually given to the recipient on padded mat or futon on the floor.  The recipient wears loose, comfortable fitting clothing.  A massage table can also be used for those who prefer this.  

~ The practitioner uses pressure applied by the Thumbs, Palms, and Elbows to enhance and stimulate the flow of Ki, or Qi, through the Meridians.  

~ Stretches and limb rotations are used to help the client relax and aid in loosening up muscles and opening joints.
