SHIATSU

about shiatsu

Shiatsu is a traditional Japanese healing art, the origins of which go back thousands of years. Literally translated SHIATSU means ‘finger pressure’. It is often used to rejuvenate the mind, body and spirit; promoting relaxation and stimulating a person’s own healing power by harmonising their vital energy called Ki or Ch’i. This vital energy travels through the body along pathways called meridians, which fundamentally are the same as those used in ‘Acupuncture’.  Shiatsu helps release toxins and deep-seated tensions from the muscles and aids in stimulating the hormonal system. On a more subtle level Shiatsu allows the receiver to relax deeply and connect with the body’s own healing abilities. It promotes a feeling of calmness and well being.
