At Cassiope Salon, prepare yourself for a relaxing treatment that dates back to ancient Japan.

A shiatsu massage is a therapeutic technique that uses the fingers and palms to apply pressure to particular parts of the body. By definition, the word shiatsu means, “finger pressure”.

The purpose of this delicate, yet simple practice is to maintain the body’s good health by warding off illness. Practioners use manipulative techniques and hand pressure to correct the imbalances of the body and enhance the body’s energy flow.

The view of Traditional Chinese Medicine is that energy; “chi” circulates along channels called meridians. Free flowing chi brings strong fresh energy and carries away spent energy together with toxins. For example, headache, sleeplessness, or depression is all viewed as blocked or diverted chi, which must be cleared and restored through the circulation of good chi.

Cassiope Salon’s trained shiatsu masseuse works in harmony with the body’s chi. By using the palms, fingers and thumbs, our masseuse will apply a still, relaxed pressure at various points on the body.

The results are profound and numerous. In general, a shiatsu massage has been known to promote a greater sense of health and well being by adjusting the body’s physical structure and its natural inner energies. Specifically, it may be beneficial for:
