Shiatsu originated in Japan from traditional Chinese medicine and is based on the principle that vital energy flows throughout the body in a series of channels called meridians. According to this principle, our health is affected when this energy stops flowing freely.
Shiatsu uses touch, comfortable pressure and manipulative techniques to adjust the body’s physical structure and balance its energy flow. It is a deeply relaxing experience and regular treatments can alleviate stress and illness and maintain health and well-being.
A Shiatsu treatment normally lasts about one hour. You are treated fully clothed so please wear loose warm comfortable clothing and avoid wearing anything tight that may restrict the movement of your limbs.
