Shiatsu is a body therapy with its roots embedded in both Traditional Chinese Medicine and Traditional Japanese Massage. Shiatsu means “finger pressure”, it uses this finger pressure, hands, feet, elbows and knees as a way to both diagnose and treat the body through the use of Meridian pathways and acupressure points.
Shiatsu works with the body's own healing wisdom in order to encourage health and wholeness. It is fundamentally a technique for waking up residual or dormant energy in the body, acknowledging the tense energy and encouraging movement.
Why do you need it?
Shiatsu can support a wide range of conditions from specific injuries to more general symptoms of poor health, it is a powerful way to work with not only the body but also the psychological, emotional and spiritual aspects of being.
Direct benefits of shiatsu include...
Clarity of mind, relaxes the body relieving stiffness and tension, restores energy and vitality and can improve circulation and breathing. Shiatsu can help you to get back in touch with your own body and become aware of what is happening within.
Practised fully clothed, on a mattress on the floor, it is a deeply relaxing experience and regular sessions can alleviate stress and illnesses and help to maintain good health.
Shiatsu is a shared experience, I will support you in allowing whatever is present for you to be explored and help you work through any changes you wish to make. Regular or a series of treatments instigates the trust and connection that your body and mind desires to feel safe and open to releasing and changing.
Thank you so much for your generosity of time and the overall treatment which had a profound effect on me at the time and which has continued to do so as the week has gone on, igniting things not just physically but also emotionally and particularly spiritually in a way in which I really wasn't expecting but which has been quite incredible and exciting and overwhelming.
