Shiatsu strives to help eliminate ailments and prevent their recurrence and the development of other ailments. Pressure applied by the hands on certain points of the skin stimulates the body's natural recuperative powers and removes fatigue by causing the diffusion of the lactic acid and carbon dioxide that accumulate among the tissues to cause muscular stiffness and stagnation of the blood. These accumulations bring on fatigue as they apply abnormal pressure on the nerves, blood, and lymph vessels. This causes irregular internal secretions and peculiarities in the skeletal system and internal organs. By diffusing fatigue causing accumulations, shiatsu pressure restores flexibility to the muscles tissues and relieves pain producing systems. Shiatsu treatment is concerned mainly with the 660 pressure points (Tsubo) where blood vessels, lymph vessels, nerves, and the ductless glands of the endocrine system tend to concentrate or to branch.
