I had taken a shiatsu class my freshman year in college (I guess I did learn something useful at NYU) and put my skills to work.
1967, from Japanese, literally "finger-pressure."
shiatsu shi·at·su (shē-ät'sōō)
A form of therapeutic massage in which pressure is applied with the thumbs and palms to those areas of the body used in acupuncture. Also called acupressure.
