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. Health complaints such as insomnia, PMS, digestion, joint problems, headache, muscle ache, pain/discomfort, and migraine are treatable with Shiatsu. 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.
A session lasts 60 minutes and is traditionally done on the floor, on a futon. During this treatment, you will be in the prone position. The entire back of your body will be treated. (On request is a front-treatment also possible). Shiatsu is a deeply relaxing experience. Certain health complaints will certainly decrease. You will feel more in balance and less subject to emotional extremes since our body is continually striving to come into balance.
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 and toxins that can cause the appearance of some health issues. Shiatsu contributes to overall health and wellbeing.
During the session you will remain fully clothed.
