Shiatsu

 

Shiatsu is a healing art originating in the Japan and China that uses the power of touch, physical pressure and stretches. This works on the body’s energy systems to enable the client to connect with the inner ability to self-heal.

In a session, the practitioner uses pressure with his or her thumbs, fingers, palms and sometimes elbows, knees and feet to induce deep relaxation and a feeling of well-being. The session takes place on a futon on the floor and the client wears loose comfortable clothing to facilitate the movement and stretching techniques.

Treatment can include dynamic stretches and a more gentle static form of Shiatsu Therapy. To receive Shiatsu is deeply relaxing and yet invigorating. As the results are cumulative it’s best to keep up regular treatments.
