Shiatsu Therapy

Shiatsu is a Japanese healing therapy that has its roots in thousands of years of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Shiatsu literally means 'finger pressure' and is performed by applying comfortable pressure to the meridian lines using thumb, palm and elbow pressure.

Meridians are pathways that carry Ki (energy) and run along your head, face, neck, shoulders, arms, hands, back, abdomen, legs and feet. In Traditional Chinese Medicine poor health and emotional difficulties are thought to be caused by disruptions to the flow of Ki along the meridians. Once the flow of Ki is interrupted, the meridian is not able to function properly, and illness can set in. The pressure applied during a Shiatsu treatment re-establishes a smooth flow of Ki, relieving the symptoms of your chief complaint and stimulating your body's inherent ability to heal itself.

Shiatsu is done fully clothed as no oils are required. It is best to wear comfortable clothing that doesn't inhibit joint movement.
