Shiatsu is an ancient Japanese therapy that stimulates the body’s own healing abilities by allowing vital energy (chi) to flow freely. It has a profound effect on the nervous system relieving stress and pain as well as improving muscle, organ and joint function. This deep but gentle approach to health has many long-term benefits for people of all ages. However, you do not have to have a specific symptom, this is also an excellent preventative treatment and a deeply enjoyable way to go inward, relax, reconnect and become mindful of the body mind connection. During our first appointment I am looking to get a whole picture of you and understand the root cause of your symptoms so I’ll do a thorough intake and this session will take about 90 mins. In a typical shiatsu session, I will work with specific pressure points and energy channels (meridians) along the body in order to assess and treat various conditions as well as stretching, joint mobilizing and breathing techniques. I may also give specific exercises, nutritional or lifestyle advice. Shiatsu takes place on a futon with the patient wearing comfortable cotton clothing.
