Shiatsu Therapy

Shiatsu which literally means ‘finger pressure’ is a Japanese healing art based in the same oriental tradition as acupuncture. Instead of needles the practitioner uses the power of touch and pressure to stimulate meridians or energy points in the body. Shiatsu induces deep relaxation and a feeling of wellbeing energising the body.

Shiatsu developed from traditional oriental massage and in common with acupuncture and other oriental therapies works on the body’s energetic system. Energy, known as Ki in Japanese flows through the body, like a system of rivers and canals. Lifestyle choices, stress, ill-health and injury upset the smooth flow of Ki causing blockages or dams in some areas, weakness or stagnation in others. Shiatsu uses the network of rivers known as meridians or energy pathways to unblock the dams and revitalise the empty areas.

A shiatsu treatment takes place on a futon or massage table. The client is fully clothed in loose comfortable clothing.

A shiatsu treatment uses physical pressure and meridian unwinding to unblock and clear stagnation that may be leading to physical, psychological or emotional disturbance in the body.

Shiatsu helps keep the body healthy, flexible and in balance as well as monitoring the energetic changes that may be a sign of sickness developing.
