David Knight has been an AOBTA certified practitioner of Zen Shiatsu since 2003.
Zen shiatsu, developed by Shizuto Masunaga, has roots in both the traditional Japanese understanding of the body’s energetic system (as used by acupuncturists) and in the Western understanding of our emotional life (Masunaga was a professor of Psychology at the University of Kyoto) and the effect our feelings have on our health and well being.
By finding and releasing areas of tension and relieving pain and stiffness through direct touch, pairing specific pressure points, and gentle limb stretching and movement, Shiatsu treatments can help settle our emotions and bring us to a state of deep relaxation so our Ki (energy), can move without obstruction.
David combines his knowledge of human body (as a martial arts practitioner and teacher of long standing as well as a bodyworker) and his understanding of the energetic anatomy (from years of ongoing training with Masters in Shiatsu, TuiNa, and Acupressure), to craft an individualized treatment for each client appropriate to their needs.
