What is Shiatsu?

Shiatsu is a traditional Japenese hands-on complimentary therapy which may help a wide range of conditions - from specific injuries to more general symptoms of poor health. Shiatsu is a gentle yet powerful form of bodywork which is designed to provide a deep relaxing and re-vitalising experience that enhances health and well-being.

Shiatsu ( means 'finger pressure') was developed in Japan and is a combination of two ancient  techniques - Japanese Massage (Amna) and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and the practitioner uses seveal diagnostic techniques so that each treatment is specific to the client's needs and conditions.

The Practitionert uses a series of gentle stretches, joint mobilisation, and bodywork and non-invasuve pressure which is appied to the acupressure points (Tsubos) and energy lines within the body (meridians). This stimulates the body's natural hraling process and helps to optimise the energy flow throughout the body. Shiatsu is similar in the theory of acupuncture but without needles. Shiatsu is approached on a hollistic level with the client and includes not just a physical apprach to health but also addresses the emotional and spiritual aspects of the client.
