Shiatsu leg massage. Hands of a therapist carrying out a Shiatsu pressure massage on the rear of the thigh of a 12-year-old boy. Sustained pressure is being applied with the thumbs to the thigh muscles of the lower leg. This is being done to treat inflammation of a tendon (tendinitis) or inflammation of a muscle. 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.
