WHAT IS SHIATSU?
Like acupuncture, Shiatsu stems from an understanding of health based on the idea that pathways of
energy (meridians) run throughout the body. Along these paths lie ‘points’ that are utilised to generate change.
To diagnose how, & why certain health disorders are present in each client, I apply (TCM)
traditional Chinese medical ‘5 Element’ approach, also Western insights into physiology & an emotional
understanding of what is present through an initial thorough consultation with you.. These different methods enable me to treat a wide variety of long held health disorders. Shiatsu bodywork recognises imbalance is addressed by enquiry into an individuals mind, body & spirit! Disharmony in one or more of these centres often creating the cause & pattern of unease, injury or ill health.
Shiatsu is given through loose clothing & offered on a futon using body support cushions.
You can expect to receive rotations of limbs & joints, kneading pressure along meridians, identified 'points' to be held, pressure applied using fingertips, forearms, elbows....even knees! I work in time with
your breath to ascertain how deeply to apply pressure. Shiatsu is often compared to acupressure, combined
with osteopathic type moves, sometimes deeply relaxing, always stimulating & like no other treatment
you're likely to have received!.......Truly transformative!
A series of 3/4 weekly sessions are generally recommended in order for your symptoms to be relieved.
