Originating from Japan, shiatsu uses finger-pressure to stimulate traditional acupuncture points, making it very similar to acupressure. Applied Shiatsu facilitates the removal of qi blockages and restores balance to the meridians and organs in order to allow the body to heal itself effectively. Shiatsu treatment promotes healing by stimulating blood and lymphatic flow, particularly useful for chronic wasting and immune deficiency diseases. Other benefits of this treatment can include pain relief, stress management, and support of the immune system to strengthen the body’s resistance to disease and disorder. Although there are many styles, the general approach is fundamentally the same as any acupressure. Quick (tonifying) or measured (sedating),  movement along the meridians and on the pressure points coupled with postural manipulation facilitates the flow of energy to and from organ systems. However there are some highly specialized modalities. In Japan one particular style, known as seitai shiatsu, was developed to treat cancer patients who have exhausted all other forms of treatment. Seitai was developed by Dr. Kiyoshi Kato in the mid-1980's, and its purpose is to direct the formation and circulation of blood, facilitate lymphatic drainage, and balance organ energy. Patients receive two seitai sessions per day for 90 days, during which time their family members learn the technique. The seitai method is somewhat different from other methods of traditional therapy in that a practitioner only requires a rudimentary knowledge of traditional medicine. The technique takes only 20 minutes and is easily learned. Coupled with a nutrient rich liquid diet, seitai shiatsu can dramatically boost the immune system in order to help patients fight off disease naturally. Currently there are hundreds of seitai shiatsu practitioners in the U.S.
