R&R Library Lounge:

Soothing Sounds and Shiatsu

Thursday evening, January 28th, treat yourself to some Japanese-style rest and relaxation at the JFLA Library. A trained specialist will provide free 3-5 minute shiatsu sessions, and while you wait, you can browse our many books, magazines, CDs and DVDs as calming Japanese music selected by JFLA Director Hideki Hara plays, providing a peaceful atmosphere for you to unwind and recharge. And relax (pun intended), you will not be made to suffer through a new-age music playlist. Gain peace of mind and body, and let shiatsu take away the pressures of everyday life.

Stop by anytime between 5:30-7:30pm and receive a free one-year membership to the JFLA Library!

What is shiatsu massage?

Shiatsu developed in Japan in the early 1900s as a result of a resurgence of Japan's traditional medical therapies, including acupuncture and anma massage. "Shiatsu" literally means "finger pressure" and serves the purpose of providing relaxation and treatment for various types of physical pain and discomfort. Shiatsu techniques include massages with fingers, thumbs, and palms, assisted stretching, joint manipulation, and mobilization.
