The Académie de Shiatsu Iokai is aimed at spreading this discipline as widely as possible, as well as other Eastern traditional disciplines which help the harmony of body and mind such as Do In - Qi Gong or Tai Ji Quan.
Shiatsu, which is a true lifestyle, was born in Japan in the early 20th century: Shi means finger and Atsu, pressure. It is a simple and natural method consisting in pressures on the whole body to revitalize it. These pressures are made with the thumbs, hands, elbows or knees, and stimulate the Ki (vital strength), helping it run more harmoniously.
Shiatsu can be practiced by everyone: Shiatsu is easy, which makes it very popular and allows it to be practiced with family and friends, not only to relax, but also for a better understanding of oneself and the others.
In Japan, it is said that “Shiatsu is like the love of a mother, pressure from the hands allows life to flow”.
