What is Shiatsu?
Shiatsu is a massage style that combines aspects from Traditional Chinese Medicine with Japanese techniques. Directly translated, Shiatsu means "pressing with fingers". On our body, we have a lot of reflex areas and pressure points on so-called meridians that are associated with various life aspects. An imbalance or a congestion can lead to pain, swelling or weakness in the corresponding body areas. By giving pressure with thumbs and palms in a Shiatsu treatment, the flow of the life energy, called Ki, is rebuilt.
How does Shiatsu help?
Shiatsu calms down the body and the nervous system, reduces stress and strengthens the immune system and self-healing. Shiatsu can be helpful in case of any pain or discomfort, movement restrictions, weaknesses or psychic and emotional disorders.
However, Shiatsu is also a great technique for relaxing and wellness. A treatment is an hour soley for you.
How is a Shiatsu treatment performed?
For a Shiatsu massage, the client is lying on the floor on a special mat, called Fouton. For best comfort, it is recommended to wear light clothes witout too many buttons or zips and not to wear jewellery. After an initiating talk, you are recieving a treatment that perfectly matches your needs.
For a wellness treatment, there is no general rule how often Shiatsu is recommended. If you are working on a specific issue, a frequency of two to six weeks often makes sense.
