Shiatsu massages are a form of Japanese bodywork, which is widely taught in massage therapy courses Sydney. They primarily focus on pressure points, massaging them using their fingertips, which is used to stimulate the circulation of blood along these points. Pressure is held on for upto eight second, and is applied in a rhythmic manner. Shiatsu is used for different health problems, such as back aches, sinuses and sciatica, and works as a tool for reducing stress. No lubrication or oil is used.

  • Deep tissue Massage

This special massage focuses on adhesions, and targets muscle knots. The therapist uses slow strokes, and friction, to tackle problems in the deeper layers of the skin. While it may sound painful, the deep tissue massage is not supposed to be painful at all. It is highly effective therefore for chronic pain, particularly for problems such as the carpel tunnel syndrome.
