Shiatsu - Traditional Asian Bodywork
Shiatsu bodywork is deeply relaxing and restorative. It clears obstruction in our energy channels (called meridians) and nourishes depleted systems. Meaning “finger pressure” in Japanese, shiatsu is rooted in traditional Asian medicine and includes pressure, massage, stretching along energy channels and on acupoints. It is performed through light-weight clothing and, classically, on a futon mat - though I work on a table. I sometimes use adjunct therapies of applying herbal liniments or salves, moxibustion or guasha. When our Qi is restored, we feel more at ease, right in ourselves and with less symptoms. Also, I've found many clients really enjoy, and even feel comforted in, learning about their own Qi and the very real ways their health experience mirrors the larger Qi rhythms in nature.
What conditions can shiatsu address?
Because it is a energy balancing practice, shiatsu can address many concerns including musculoskeletal pain or injury, sleep issues, energy, mood and stress related concerns, headaches, poor immunity, digestive and gyn problems. Shiatsu is especially helpful for maintaining good health, relieving pain and stress and for overall well-being.
