About Shiatsu

In Chinese medicine, vital energy called Qi flows through the body via a network of subtle energy channels or meridians. These meridians connect our vital organs with other areas and functions of our body.

Physical and emotional symptoms can occur 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 or injury. Each shiatsu treatment is therefore unique to you and tailored to meet your present and specific needs

Your Session

An in depth medical and emotional case history will be taken and we will explore together your reasons for coming and what you would like to gain from our sessions. Tongue and pulse diagnosis will support this along with a hands on assessment to ascertain which meridians are most involved

Slow, deep pressure will then be applied along the ‘emptiest’ meridians in order to support and strengthen these areas of your body. This will feel very nurturing and deeply relaxing to receive. Stretches and more dynamic movement will be used to move energy from the ‘fullest’ meridians. This will be experienced as a real sense of relief both physically and emotionally. All treatments are performed fully clothed. Please wear loose comfortable clothing preferably made from natural fibers.
