In the Japanese language, shiatsu means “finger pressure”.
Shiatsu techniques include massaging with fingers, thumbs, feet and palms; assisting with the stretching and joint manipulation and activation of the body. To examine a patient, a shiatsu practitioner uses palpation and sometimes pulse diagnosis.
The word Shiatsu is Japanese. “Shi-” refers to finger, and “-atsu” means pressure. The Japanese Ministry of Health defines shiatsu as “a form of manipulation by thumbs, fingers and palms without the use of instruments, tools or otherwise, to apply pressure to the human skin to correct internal malfunctions, promote and maintain health, and treat specific diseases. The techniques used in shiatsu include stretching, holding, and most commonly, leaning body weight into various points along key channels.”
Shiatsu derives from a Japanese massage modality called anma which was itself adapted from tui na. Tui na is a Chinese bodywork system that arrived in Japan in the Nara period. Tokujiro Namikoshi (1905–2000) founded a shiatsu college in the 1940s, and is often credited with inventing modern shiatsu.
