Shiatsu

About Shiatsu
Shiatsu is a hands-on body therapy originating in Japan, that uses the ancient principles of Chinese medicine combined with modern structural alignment techniques, to bring better flow of energy and alignment in the body.

The treatments are deeply relaxing and nourishing to the body, mind and spirit through helping to correct energetic and structural imbalances. Shiatsu uses gentle pressure, stretches, joint mobilisation, release of soft tissue and gentle, subtle adjustments to create balance on all levels.

The treatments can help to alleviate physical pain and injury, correct musculo-skeletal, spine and hip misalignments, release tension and stress held from past traumas, improve long-term health conditions, increase energy levels and enhance wellbeing overall. It works to support your body’s own ability for self-repair so can also help to prevent illness. The receiver experiences greater ease and renewed vitality through the recovery of their innate life force.

During a shiatsu treatment many areas of the body are worked on – head, face, neck, arms, torso, back, spine, hips, legs and feet – so it can be experienced as an invigorating and nurturing whole body treatment. The treatments are done fully clothed at floor-level and sessions are for one hour. It is advisable to wear loose comfortable clothing and not to eat a heavy meal immediately before the session.

Shiatsu For Pregnancy
Shiatsu is very beneficial during pregnancy to help manage the many changes that occur physically, emotionally and mentally at different stages. A special body-cushion is used to enable comfortable lying in the face-down, back or side position, even in the later stages of pregnancy. This can also help to alleviate back pain or other tensions arising during pregnancy. The treatments help to bring nourishment and relaxation and build strength and inner resources to help prepare for labour and post-child birth.
