Shiatsu (Kanji: ? Hiragana: ?) in Japanese means "finger pressure"; it is a type of alternative medicine consisting of finger and palm pressure, stretches, and other massage techniques. There is no scientific evidence for any medical efficacy of shiatsu.* Shiatsu practitioners promote it as a way to help people relax and cope with issues such as stress (biology)|stress, muscle pain, nausea, anxiety, and depression (mood)|depression.

Tokujiro Namikoshi (1905-2000) invented shiatsu and founded the first shiatsu college in 1940.*

Many shiatsu schools exist across the world and all incorporate elements of anatomy, physiology and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).

Shiatsu is usually performed on a futon mat, with clients fully clothed. It can also be performed on horses and other animals.*
