Shiatsu uses the fingers, thumbs & palms to put pressure on different areas of the body to help heal ailments & correct imbalances in the body. Pressure applied to points on the body promotes energy flow & corrects disharmonies throughout the patient's body.
On top of being a relaxing experience, Shiatsu helps relieve stress, treat pain & illness. Like acupuncture & Tui Na, Shiatsu is based on the holistic system of traditional Chinese medicine, where illness is thought to result from imbalances in the body's natural flow of energy, or Qi.
Shiatsu is beneficial for:
• Back pain
• Neck & shoulder pain
• General injuries
• Arthritis pain
• Poor digestion
• Infectious skin disease, rash, or open wounds
• Recent surgery
• Blood clots
If any of the above apply, please consult with your doctor before treatment.
