In the West, Shiatsu can also be described as ‘acupuncture without the needles’. Deep relaxation releases stress and increases circulation of blood, lymph, collagen and energy. Shiatsu improves body functions, prevents illness, promotes overall health and well-being of the mind, body and spirit!
Shiatsu Therapy is a non-invasive, deep-tissue Japanese healing therapy designed to stimulate the body’s own natural healing process. This whole body treatment is traditionally performed on the floor, but can be adapted to a table to fully clothed individuals. It is rooted in Traditional Chinese Medicine, promoting health and facilitating healing by correcting energy imbalances within the body. Energy imbalances can manifest as backache, headache, depression and many other ways. By applying pressure to specific points and channels, via thumbs, palms, elbows and feet, balance and health can be restored.
