The Japanese massage technique is delicate and has a strong sense of rhythm. It does not pay attention to swinging techniques, but focuses on the application of pressing and friction techniques. The pressing force should be between the feeling of pleasure and slight pain.

Japanese massage is based on acupressure as the basic feature. The method of applying force is to use the limbs or fingers as a support frame, and use its own body weight to force downward and vertical to the center of the limbs, without using wrist force when applying force. The time to stay on the acupressure area during acupressure is 3 to 5 seconds. Avoid drastic and rapid increases in strength, and instead increase strength evenly and slowly. When the experiencer exhales, press down hard. When pressing, do not use the tip of the finger alone, but use the pulp of the finger. All maneuvers with arms straight. Focus on the upper body, and use the fingers as a medium to transfer the force to the experiencer. The acupressure point mentioned here refers to a larger local surface, rather than a specific point. It may be on a certain meridian point of traditional Chinese medicine, but it is not called acupuncture point in Japanese style, but only called acupressure point. When doing Japanese massage, the experiencer will apply a little medium such as massage oil to the body.


Japanese massage is Japanese Shiatsu. It is a massage technique that evolved from ancient Chinese acupuncture and massage techniques.

It is loved and cultivated by people." Chinese massage is widely spread in Japan, but it has evolved into "shiatsu therapy" with Japanese characteristics in modern times. . The term "shiatsu" is derived from Japanese fingers and pressure. There are many schools of Japanese acupressure therapy, but the authentic Japanese acupressure therapy is based on Nagoshi Tokujiro, who officially founded the first in 1940. The "Traditional School of Shiatsu".
