Shiatsu is based on the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine and can provide many benefits such as deep relaxation, stress reduction and relief from muscular tension. It promotes health and well-being and can be used therapeutically or as a way of preventing illness or pain. Shiatsu has been used in a variety of ways.

When Shiatsu is not advised

If you have any of the health conditions in the list below, vigorous Massage like Shiatsu Massage is not appropriate. Feel free to contact us for more information on why. Do not proceed with Shiatsu Massage if you have: Acute conditions (including fever and acute inflammation); Bleeding disorders; Contagious diseases; High Blood Pressure; Osteoporosis; Physical trauma (recent dislocation, wound or broken bone); Recent chemotherapy; Thrombosis; Vascular disorders; Vomiting;

We will normally offer a much gentler form of Massage Therapy as an alternative for you, there are some conditions where even gentle massage may not be suitable, click here to read about more serious contra-indications.


In a Shiatsu treatment, you remain fully clothed and no oil is used. It is usually conducted on a futon or mat on the floor but has been adapted for table at YOU Massage.

Elements of Traditional Chinese Medicine are incorporated into this style of Shiatsu (Zen Shiatsu) which means there is a focus on energy channels (meridians) to correct imbalances, as in Acupressure. One hand is used as a 'listening' hand which usually remains still to create support while the other is used to apply pressure.

Pressure is applied to the meridians and points using thumbs, fingers or palms. Treatment also usually involves stretches and joint rotations to help relieve tension, stiffness or pain. Before a treatment begins a 'hara diagnosis' takes place where your stomach is palpated (through clothing) to locate energy imbalances in the body. Please ensure you wear loose clothing when you come for your Shiatsu treatment.


Please note, a consultation is required on your first visit for any treatment; necessary to get a good understanding of you and tailor the treatment around your needs.

Please allow an extra 15 minutes and £7.50 during your first visit.

YOU Massage Southampton Shiatsu

The Shiatsu that we offer in our Southampton Massage Studio, is a completely different style to the traditional western oil massage. In a Shiatsu Massage, you remain fully clothed through the treatment and no oil is used. Shiatsu Massage uses pressure points and yoga like stretching to release tension and relax muscles.
