Shiastu is a form of Accupressure and has its origin in Japan it is also referred to as Zen Shiastu. In fact this alternative treatment is based on Traditional Chinese Medicine and Five Element Theory. But Shiastu is a modernized form. Shiatsu uses rhythmic pressure from 3 to 10 seconds on specific points along the body s meridians by using the fingers, hands, elbows, knees, and sometimes feet to unblock and stimulate the flow of energy. It is used to treat pain and illness, to relax the body, and to maintain general health. Besides the Japanese form, various styles of Shiastu exist. One of these forms is Tansu and its practice is prevalent in India. And yes, this Shaistu form uses Indian tantric practices.

The characteristic of shiatsu as defined by Namikoshi is to apply pressure using only the fingers, palms and especially the thumbs on points that have been related to the central and autonomic nervous systems. Masanuga, who identified reflections of the acupuncture channels in the arms and legs, considered that a shiatsu treatment should a involve the whole body, b require a focussed practitioner sensitive to the energy distributions of the body, and c provide an extra dimension of connection and support using both hands where one listens and the other acts . In both styles, however, the essence of shiatsu is Diagnosis and Therapy combined. Diagnosis and Therapy combined is the ability of the practitioners to use their sensory organs palms, fingers, and thumbs to detect disharmonies in the energetic components of the body, such as stiffness or slackness at or within its surface , and to perform empirically established routines to correct these problems. To acquire this skill takes considerable experience. The defining difference between shiatsu therapy and modern and Kampo medicine also known as Traditional Chinese Medicine TCM , such as acupuncture and moxibustion is this Diagnosis and Therapy combined . In Zen Shiatsu, the diagnosis proceeds through several stages. The practitioner first makes use of signs in the subject s superficial appearance and odor, in the sounds he or she makes and in the sensations felt by touch. The practitioner also examines the principal pulses in the wrists there are others in the body and the appearance of the tongue, and looks for psychological evidence of contributing factors in how the subject answers questions about his or her health and particular problem. The practitioner will also feel for energy imbalances related to the internal organs in and around the abdomen and view signs of these in the back. In TCM, illness comes from an invasion of external factors and/or from emotional disharmonies within. External factors may eventually penetrate to the interior of the body and cause serious illness, just as internal factors move to the exterior and cause problems at the surface of the body and in the subject s behaviour. Thus similar symptoms may have different causes. The diagnostic skill is to identify correctly the sources of disharmony and to try and eliminate them. In Zen Shiatsu, the diagnosis is crucial to the therapy s effectiveness. In shiatsu therapy, however, practitioners can also promote the prevention and recovery of illnesses by stimulating the immune system and natural healing power that people already possess without treating a specific problem. Treating the body as a whole, so they say, helps to restore the physical functions of the nervous system, circulatory system, bone structure, muscles, and internal secretion and stimulates the whole of the mind and body to find harmony. Skilled shiatsu practitioners can contribute considerably to regional health and medical treatments.
