It’s an ancient method of bodywork that developed through healing & prevention of illness in the East.
We use stretches, rotations and movement to restore mobility and readjust areas that are feeling stuck like neck & shoulders. Hand & thumb pressure on the acupressure points encourages energy flow.
How is it different to classic massage?
Shiatsu is based on the 5000 year old knowledge of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
This gives extra depth & breadth to how we might approach symptoms.
Using the diagnostics of Chinese Medicine & the energy system of meridians, we can trace and restore what’s out of balance.
The receiver wears loose comfortable clothing, we work on a thick mat on the floor or on the massage table.
What can it treat?
Shiatsu is a holistic therapy which means we take the whole person into account. By working on the physical body we are also able to influence the mental & emotional layers. This works for chronic & complex issues like stress or for more immediate pain symptoms.
Shiatsu is also popular before during and after pregnancy.
