Japanese Massage

Anma and Shiatsu

Bring traditional Japanese massage into your practice

What is Japanese Massage?

Japanese Massage is called "Anma" relaxation massage in Japanese with thumb pressure and kneading techniques. This is similar to Chinese Anmo Tuina and Shiatsu, but the details are different; for example, practiced on a massage table or a massage chair, more hands and thumbs are used rather than elbows. To accommodate with Australian society, this Japanese Massage can be provided with quality botanical oil such as Tsubaki (Camellia) oil, but normally is applied on a client with clothe-on.


We will teach rhythmic techniques following meridians, which are energy channels covering whole body.
