What is Shiatsu?

Shiatsu is a system for body maintenance the achievement and subsequent maintenance of a sense of well-being in the body which helps maintain emotional and mental health. Physically it works by stimulating the circulation and the flow of lymphatic fluids which work on the nervous system, helping to release the buildup of toxins and deep seated tension within the muscles of the body. All of these enables the receiver to relax deeply and aids the body's natural healing abilities

How does my shiatsu work?

Using fingers, palms, elbows, knees and feet to apply gentle or farm pressure, stretches and rocks gently the body to energetic pathways, called m.ians to improve the flow of Qi and release energy and aid relaxation. Integrating shiatsu is cupping and spooning and meridian moxibustion.

After the session, most people experience a profound sense of well-being and contentment, with access to heightened levels of energy and endurance. Blockages are released; balance is restored.

What does shiatsu feel like?
