This unique, hands on healing method, is rooted in the ancient knowledge of Traditional Chinese Medicine combined with the modern knowledge of physiology and anatomy. Based on the understanding of the unbreakable link between the mental and the physical, Shiatsu helps to maintain overall health and increases body-mind awareness.
Shiatsu uses a gentle yet deep touch combined with assisted stretching and other corrective techniques in order to clear contracted areas in the body, allowing energy to circulate freely. Traditionally given on a comfortable futon, no oil is used, and the receiver remains clothed throughout the treatment. Loose comfortable clothing is recommended.
Every treatment is a full body treatment- We will diagnose the state of each Meridian within the body and design a treatment that will bring all internal systems back to equilibrium. Each session is designed for the special needs of the individual.
