Traditional Japanese therapy founded by Mr Namikoshi
Shiatsu is a healing art, a healing therapy that we borrow from Japan.
Shiatsu means “finger pressure.” During the treatment, I work on the pressure points on the meridian lines using gentle manipulations such as rocking, rotating, kneading and stretching of the joints and limbs. The therapy is a combination of assisted stretching techniques and acupressure.
Shiatsu is beneficial for:
headache and migraine
stress & anxiety
stiff joints and limbs
Shiatsu gives effective results and has no side effects. Shiatsu is a treatment suitable for all ages. These days more and more people prefer to try the alternative holistic route. If you want a good life, first ensure a proper coordination with your body. Physical complaints are often a wake-up-call.
A session lasts 60 minutes and is traditionally done on a futon on the floor, in prone position. During the treatment the entire back (head to foot) is treated. Shiatsu is a deeply relaxing experience. Specific health complaints and diseases might not always disappear but it will definitely reduce and alleviate the pain. You will feel more in balance and less subject to emotional extremes since our body is continually striving to come into balance. Taking care of your soul is taking care of your body.
Having a Shiatsu session on a regular base helps to discover possible changes and irregularities that manifests in the body. Shiatsu prevents the accumulation of stress, mental and physical obstacles that can cause the appearance of some health issues. Shiatsu contributes to overall health and wellbeing. When we feel comfortable in our bodies, we will have fewer mental and physical issues.
During the session you will remain fully clothed.
