A Japanese form of acupressure based on gentle touching and cradling of the body rather than massage; the practitioner identifies zones of compromised flow of energy chi (life force) by pulse diagnosis and then attempts to harmonise the body, mind and spirit, simultaneously touching a combination of 2 of 26 “safety energy locks” located along the body’s energy pathways so as to redirect the patient’s intrinsic life forces to unblock the flow of energy.
