Shiatsu is a Japanese form of bodywork which uses the pressure of palms and fingertips along energy channels called “meridians” to balance the body’s energy system and promote health and emotional well being.
The treatment is done through clothing with the patient lying on a futon on the floor.
Shiatsu is based on the same principles as acupuncture and uses the same pressure points and ways of diagnosis. Because it is a hands-on treatment it also includes deep, soothing palm pressure, stretches, rotations and general loosening. It is always calming and invigorating.
Shiatsu treats the whole person, strengthening your entire system and thus creating:
- A state of balance
- Ease of body and mind
- A deep sense of well being
- Support with any process you are going through
Shiatsu is often experienced as a great help when going through a difficult time.
