Listen to this article

We all know that stress is a health problem, since it can affect us in many ways. It is important that we know how to avoid it so that we do not suffer its consequences. One way to relax and eliminate stress is through shiatsu.

Shiatsu is an ancient massage technique aimed at eliminating negative energy from the body, achieving greater balance and better relaxation. This technique is applied in a relaxed way, without rushing so that the speed of the massage matches the breathing of the person being massaged. It should be a technique that helps us disconnect from the environment to reach another state in which tranquility predominates.
