Shiatsu

Shiatsu is a traditional Japanese method of bodywork-sharing its principles with Chinese medicine-which uses the power of touch and pressure to adjust the body’s physical structure, and harness effective energy flow (known as “Qi”). Optimum function of the structural system and Qi, supports individuals to greater health and wellbeing. Shiatsu literally means “finger pressure”, and the therapy comprises of a variety of techniques including gentle holding, pressing with palms, thumbs, fingers, elbows, knees and feet on the meridians, and dynamic rotations and stretches, to establish appropriate physical alignment and balance.

Shiatsu works upon the body’s energy or “Qi”, using a network of associated pathways known as meridians, which relate to our internal organs, emotions and mind-body harmony. By facilitating and improving the quality and flow of Qi, Shiatsu aims to achieve improved general health and wellbeing.
