Paul Saso has been practicing Shiatsu since 2011. His goal is to open blockages and tense areas and to revitalize the body, allowing it to function with ease and without pain. By working along meridians throughout the body the practitioner enables Chi to flow freely thus stimulating healing and health. Blockages and tense areas are released and the body is balanced, creating flow and evenness. During a Shiatsu massage the client is fully clothed. Shiatsu is quite meditative and involves many different elements such as: acupressure, stretching, and active release.
