Dr. Purcaro is a master of Shiatsu Massage Therapy. Experts estimate that upwards of ninety percent of all disease is stress-related! Stress can also cause us to appear to age faster. Shiatsu is an incredibly effective tool in the management of stress.
Shiatsu is a finger pressure massage technique and requires no special equipment. Shiatsu massage therapy is founded on the Chinese meridian system. The therapist applies pressure with his thumbs, finger, and palms to specific areas of the client's body that have been determined during an assessment period prior to the massage session. There are no needle pokes involved with Shiatsu. Massage techniques like tapping, squeezing, rubbing, and applied pressure are applied along the meridians to unblock energy blockages and reintroduce the optimal flow of qi. It has no side effects and can be enjoyed by anyone from children to the elderly. Treatments are performed with you fully clothed, while lying on a comfortable mat on the floor, in traditional Japanese style.
