Shiatsu Massage Training Courses and Classes in New Zealand

In this article you will find an overview of Shiatsu massage trainers we’ve spotted in New Zealand.

Shiatsu therapy is a Japanese acupressure massage with its origins in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), that is, it’s based on traditional Chinese Ammo massage (known in Japan as Amma or Anma massage). Shiatsu massage is sometimes also compared to Chinese acupuncture, but then without the use of needles.

In Shiatsu, manual pressure is exerted on specific acupressure points and on the so-called Ki-meridians (vital life energy channels) with the aim of healing or alleviating pain and ailments. Shiatsu massage therapy can also be used for relaxation or as a preventive treatment.
