Shiatsu is a form of therapeutic bodywork from Japan which is based on ideas of Traditional Chinese Medicine. The theory behind Shiatsu is that bodies are made up of energy, called Qi, which gets blocked and causes mental and physical suffering.
During Shiatsu massage, techniques such as pressure, tapping and stretching are used to enhance and balance the Qi in the body of the client.
When Qi is brought back into balance, healing occurs.
Shiatsu has preventative and remedial effects.
Shiatsu is used to treat a wide range of internal, musculoskeletal and emotional conditions such as headaches, digestive disorders, stress, back and neck pain or anxiety.
At the beginning of your massage I will analyse your condition and tailor the massage to your needs.
