A Japanese method that began in the early 1900’s. It is the use of thumbs, fingers, and palms in the application of static and rhythmic pressure to particular areas of the body, in a set sequence.

Classically it is performed with light clothing worn since no lotions or oils are used.

Its use is to promote and maintain good health and restore imbalances in the body. It too utilizes the energy lines or meridians of the body as do most Eastern styles of work.

In their respective countries, this and other Asian/ Oriental methods are actually used as diagnosis and treatments of certain ailments in the body.
