The philosophy underlying Shiatsu is that vital energy (known as Chi)
flows throughout the body in a series of channels called meridians. For
many different reasons Chi can stop flowing freely, which can then produce
a symptom or symptoms.
Our shiatsu practitioner will consider your state of health and the
symptoms you are experiencing, and will use a variety of techniques to
improve your energy flow. These may include gentle holding, pressing with
palms, thumbs, elbows, and feet on the meridians, and when appropriate,
more dynamic rotations and stretches. Shiatsu is a therapy that works
on the individual as a complete being – not just the physical body,
but also on an emotional or mental level.
Shiatsu therapy is ideal for corporate and group treatments as clients
need not remove clothing. The client can either be seated or lying down.
