What is Japanese Massage?
"Seitai", the Japanese word for this form of massage, is translated as "put the body in order". It is a form of massage combining Japanese techniques with Chinese acupressure. It may improve the circulation of blood and lymph fluid, and restore flexibility in muscles and joints.
Japanese massage was developed by Kiyoshi Kato during the last century, and was used with a regulated diet to treat cancer patients at his three residential clinics in Osaka, Japan. Like traditional Thai massage, it is done fully clothed.
Japanese massage provides relief from a variety of ailments, including arthritis, asthma, constipation, headaches, and especially back pain and related problems. It may help to increase energy, strengthen organs and improve fluidity of movement and digestion.
