Shiatsu originated in Japan with roots in traditional Chinese medicine and influences from more recent Western therapies. Although shiatsu means ‘finger pressure’ in Japanese, in practice a practitioner will use touch, comfortable pressure and manipulative techniques to adjust the body’s physical structure and balance the energy flow.
Shiatsu is deeply relaxing and regular treatments can alleviate stress and illness and maintain good health and general well being.Shiatsu balances the internal energy flow, tonifies the inner organs, opens up the joints and gently stretches the muscles promoting increased flexibility and an overall sense of release and relaxation.
You do not have to have any specific complaint to enjoy this relaxing, rejuvenating treatment.
WHAT TO EXPECT
A warm welcome and an individually tailored treatment programme to stop problems recurring. Exercise and education of muscles, body and attitude are the key factors that will maintain good health long after Shiatsu treatments are complete.
During the treatment you will remain fully clothed so please wear loose comfortable clothing, cotton tracksuit bottoms and sweatshirt are ideal.
