Caption: Shiatsu back massage. Close-up of the hands of a therapist carrying out a Shiatsu pressure massage on the upper back of a 12-year-old boy. Sustained pressure is being applied with the thumbs to the muscles surrounding the spinal column. Shiatsu, or acupressure, is a form of alternative therapy first practised by the Japanese. Pressure is applied to specific parts of the body by the hand or fingers in order to treat physical illness in another part of the body. The technique is based on the same principles as acupuncture.
