Well-being…Bien-Être without medication.
Shiatsu is a therapy endorsed by the Ministry of Health and Welfare of Japan.
Shiatsu is a traditional Japanese therapy founded by the Master Tokujiro Namikoshi.
The Namikoshi Shiatsu college & university is located in Tokyo. In October 2019 I had the great opportunity to get a Shiatsu treatment myself at the Namikoshi clinic in Tokyo. I took all my Shiatsu (and Kobido facial massage as well) courses at the Escuela Japonesa de Shiatsu in Madrid.
Shiatsu is a healing art, also called a ‘miracle therapy’ that we borrow from Japan.
Shiatsu means “finger pressure.” It is a style of bodywork where I will use finger pressure and work on the meridian lines (network of energy channels) and tsubo (Japanese for energy points) using gentle but firm techniques such as rocking movements, rotating, kneading and stretching of the joints and limbs in order to release tension, bring balance to the body and restore the healthy flow of the ‘ki’ (energy).
During the session you will be fully dressed on a low massage table (or possibly on a futon if you prefer).
