Shiatsu back massage of the meridian along the spine

Remember that while a shiatsu back massage you don't have to press directly on the spine. On both sides of the spine are placed two important shiatsu meridians which are in charge of general tone of the back. Finding it use the fingertips to press the shiatsu acupuncture points, moving from shoulders down to the lower back. While one finger will be active other 4 fingers will serve as support for the hand. The pressure timing must be correlated to breathing of the patient.
