Thank you for your interest in Shiatsu Therapy.

The original form of Shiatsu was developed by Tokujiro Namikoshi-sensei who is the founder of Shiatsu. When he was a child his mother was suffering from rheumatoid arthritis, in an effort to make his mother feel better he found that his presses on the body helped relieve the pain. This simple love for his mother was the birthplace of Shiatsu, and it is why we say Shiatsu is like a mother's love.
