Shiatsu massage is a specialised form of Japanese massage. Literally translated, Shiatsu means “Finger Pressure”. However, Shiatsu is more than “just” a massage. Shiatsu massage has its basis in Traditional Chinese Medicine. It utilises the same pressure points or ‘Tsubos’ as Acupuncture, and incorporates Zen theory along with contemporary physiological understanding.
This unique viewpoint is one of the real strengths of Shiatsu massage as a healing practice. Shiatsu is a holistic and integrated style of healing encompassing the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual levels of human experience. As a holistic treatment I look to treat the whole person and not just the “symptoms”.
Shiatsu works on a basic level by contacting energetic channels that run through the body called meridians. These meridians (which connect the tsubos) can become blocked or stagnant. Shiatsu works to return balance by using gentle pressure applied mainly with the palm and fingers.
Shiatsu can help restore your health and enhance your feeling of wellbeing, it can be practised either therapeutically or just as a great way to relax and unwind.
