What is Shiatsu?

Shiatsu is a Japanese word, which means finger pressure. However it is deeply rooted in traditional Chinese medicine and therefore is very helpful for maintaining good health and preventing illness. It is a form of physical manipulation and a means towards the growth of the body, mind and spirit.

Shiatsu Technique

In Shiatsu, thumb and palm pressure is used on the body’s channels and is given through loose, comfortable clothing.

Conditions helped by Shiatsu:

Headaches & Migraines
Stress & Anxiety
Backache
Neck & Shoulder tension
Digestive disturbances
Joint pain & reduced mobility
Fatigue & Insomnia

Acute conditions can respond in one treatment, however more chronic problems may require more as the body relaxes and re-balances.
