What is Shiatsu?
Shiatsu is a deeply relaxing and extremely effective form of bodywork based on the classical theories of Chinese Medicine. It works in the same way as acupuncture, but uses nurturing touch instead of needles to move and support energy in the body. It can help many physical and emotional conditions (e.g. back pain and digestive issues) as well as promoting relaxation and alleviating or preventing the build up of stress.
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.
The shiatsu practitioner uses relaxed body weight, to apply pressure along these meridians and their precise acupressure points in order to stimulate the body’s own natural healing response. Modern science is beginning to understand the effectiveness of such treatments, showing how, for example rapid intercommunication occurs through the bodies connective tissues.
