There are several massage practices that came from the East and are used today at many spas. One of those is shiatsu with origins in Japan. The word means “finger pressure.” This incorporates the use of acupressure and involves techniques such as vibrating, brushing, and rolling while the feet can be used for applying pressure to legs, thighs, and back.
Another eastern massage is the hilot. This is a traditional healing massage from the Philippines and uses massage techniques that help to relax muscles that are stressed. It manipulates joints that give relief to the patient.
The Swedish massage applies five types of long massaging strokes including kneading, sliding, friction, rhythmic tapping, and shaking. This helps to relieve pain and stiffness in joints.
