A bit more about Shiatsu
Shiatsu is an alternative form of therapy that follows the same principles of acupuncture but does not use needles. It aims to alleviate ailments by trying to correct and improve the circulation of blood and life force in the human body.
Fingers and hands are used to apply pressure to the body to stimulate the meridians or healing pathways. Each meridian corresponds to an organ and disease pattern. Disease patterns come from blocks or lack of energy in the meridians and life force. Stimulation through shiatsu acupressure moves the blockages and improves your health.
The beauty of shiatsu is that it uses diagnosis to treat the cause not just the symptoms. A Shiatsu treatment is unique to you, considers all aspects of a womans life to ensure better health and is complementary to many western treatments.
Treatment may include:
a meditative sequence of pressure applied through the hands;
stretches and rotations of the limbs to free up blocked energy
rubbing or gentle shaking to improve energy flow (Sotai)
heat therapy to nourish energy and blood (Moxa), and cupping.
Shiatsu can be safely performed on pregnant women, people with disabilities, children, older adults and post-operative.
