Shiatsu is a holistic therapy that originates from Japan and is influenced by Chinese medicine and Western knowledge. It is based on similar principles to acupuncture but uses hands, thumbs, elbows and knees rather than needles.
Shiatsu treats each person holistically for overall physical, mental and spiritual health. It aims to treat the underlying cause and not just the presenting symptoms and so every treatment is based on the unique needs of the individual and the energetic diagnosis on the day.
A calm space is offered where you can feel where you are holding deep seated tension and the stillness to tune in more deeply with yourself so the healing journey can begin. It helps to rebalance the body’s energy channels of vital energy to promote well-being and good health. Shiatsu effectively treats many chronic and acute conditions or can be used as a preventative measure to maintain your juicy flow with life.
Shiatsu is a very nurturing and relaxing experience and your body is continually communicates, often revealing underlying causes of any presenting symptoms.
The first session is longer as a case history is taken to develop a complete picture of your health and any issues you may wish to address. The treatment takes place on a futon on the floor and you remain fully clothed. Please wear loose comfortable clothing, preferably cotton. Do not eat a heavy meal before the treatment and drink plenty of water after the session.
