Adherents of the Japanese Shiatsu method claim that if you apply pressure therapy to different parts of the body, you will look better and feel better. Massage relieves negative emotions, restores tone and even prolongs life.
Shiatsu massage can be performed anywhere and at any time several times a day. Squeeze the thumb of your left hand with the fingers of your right hand. Press and when you feel a pulsation – so hold for one minute. Repeat this with each finger of your left hand. Massage your right arm in the same way. With the thumb of your right hand, press the center of the inside of your left palm. When you feel a pulsation-hold for 2 minutes. Repeat the same exercise with your right fist. This way you will bring your body into emotional and physical balance. If you feel weakness or are filled with negative emotions – then do a finger massage that corresponds to a particular organ or emotion for one minute to 5 minutes.
