Acupressure/Shiatsu In Japanese, shiatsu means "finger pressure." This Japanese massage technique uses varied, rhythmic pressure on certain precise points of the body. These points are called acupressure points, and they are believed to be important for the flow of the body's vital energy, called chi. Proponents say shiatsu massage can help relieve blockages at these acupressure points.

Swedish massage is the most popular type of massage in the United States. It involves the use of hands, forearms or elbows to manipulate the superficial layers of the muscles to improve mental and physical health. Active or passive movement of the joints may also be part of the massage.
Thai Massage is a deeply satisfying integration of yoga and massage which has its roots in India's Ayurvedic medical system and traditional Chinese medicine. It combines gentle stretching and graceful movements with effective pressure point techniques to ease muscular tension, improve joint mobility, increase flexibility, circulation, and energy. Sessions are performed clothed, on futon on the ground and can be rejuvenating for the whole body, or serve to relieve a specific area of muscular tension or inflexibility.
