What is Shiatsu?

Shiatsu is based on the same principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Shiatsu literally means “finger pressure”. Also known as Acupressure Bodywork but either way it’s a sophisticated Healing Art that has evolved from the same ancient system that developed into acupuncture. I use direct, precise pressure on the same meridian points stimulated with needles. Like acupuncture Shiatsu has the potential to result in effects that are more than musculoskeletal.

Optimum Wellness

In a relaxed and engaged way the client experiences a rhythmic sequence of pressure, stretching, breathing and energy flow along the 12 meridians or channels, lines of energy that flow through the body. Emotional states, thoughts and beliefs are affected positively by the balancing treatment in receiving Shiatsu. For achieving and maintain optimum wellness, Shiatsu is a powerful tool. Comfortable clothes are worn during Shiatsu, athletic attire, sweat pants & tee shirt.
