The Anti Aging Device You've Had All Along

Are you in search of a something new, trendy and anti aging to add to your menu to grab clients' attention? What if i told you that you already have it? YOUR HANDS!

Shiatsu (meaning "finger- pressure" ) is a form of therapy of Japanese origin. Similar to acupuncture, this technique applies pressure to certain points on the face using your hands.

Using the same principles as Chinese medicine's acupuncture, good health is dependent on the free circulation of the energy, as know referred to as "Qi", throughout the body. Shiatsu combines massage technique by applying pressure on energy points. The process removes energy blockages caused by pain or tension to allow energy to circulate freely. Chinese medicine states that these energy points on the face connect to energy pathways on the entire body.

This ancient massage technique is easy to learn with no special equipment, supplies or oils needed. It can be easily incorporated to any facial treatment.
