What is shiatsu?
Shiatsu is a unique form of bodywork that provides the satisfaction of touch along with a profound energy balancing experience. It is based on thousands of years of Eastern philosophy and methods of healing adapted to meet the needs of the Western world.
How does Shiatsu work?
Eastern philosophy teaches that there are meridians or pathways within the body that channel the Ki energy ~ our life essence. We experience this energy in the functioning of all our life systems, from digestion to higher reasoning and spiritual awareness. Any stagnation or imbalance within the meridian system can result in physical and psychological
dis-ease. Through the application of touch and stretching the body in a smooth, continuous manner, shiatsu helps restore health and well-being.
what are the benefits?
• Relief from the common physical symptoms of stress, such as fatigue, joint pain, muscle tension, anxiety and headaches
• Deep relaxation and a more complete connection of body, mind and spirit
• Greater self-awareness, inner peace and harmony
• Increased ability to sense and balance your own energy
• Increased mastery of your own health and well-being
why is Shiatsu unique?
Shiatsu blends psychological and spiritual components with the physical. Rather than focus on specific points, shiatsu
emphasizes sensing and working with the overall flow of energy throughout the body. By balancing the energy, the body can follow its own natural impulse to heal itself. This deep relaxation of body, mind, and spirit rejuvenates the receiver and induces a state of harmony and peace.
In a shiatsu session, the receiver lies on a mat on the floor fully clothed in comfortable
clothing. The giver of shiatsu moves about the receiver's body applying pressure to, and stretching and exercising the meridians. Receiving regular sessions enables you to keep your energy balanced and to develop a deeper awareness of body, mind and spirit, facilitating your own healing.
