Shiatsu is a deeply nourishing, full body massage based on the principles of Chinese medicine.Incorporating precise acupressure massage and gentle assisted stretches, shiatsu can release muscular and emotional tension and strengthen areas of weakness in the body. It feels deeply relaxing to receive, resulting in better sleep and improved energy levels.
How does it work?
In Chinese medicine, vital energy called Qi flows through the body via a network of subtle energy channels or meridians. Disease occurs when the natural flow of Qi in these meridians becomes blocked, depleted or out of balance. This can be caused by factors such as emotional stress, diet, over work, living conditions, infection or injury. Shiatsu uses the power of nourishing touch to access these energy channels, moving and strengthening the flow of Qi in the body. By discovering where energy is blocked or lacking in your body, shiatsu can help you to understand which aspects of your life are out of balance and help you to address them.
