What is Shiatsu?shiatsu

Shiatsu is an ancient, traditional hands-on Japanese healing therapy. Like acupuncture, shiatsu is based on the holistic system of traditional Chinese medicine, where illness is thought to result from imbalances in the natural flow of energy, or qi (pronounced "chee") through the body.

Shiatsu therapists use finger and palm pressure to energetic pathways, called meridians to improve the flow of qi.

A scientific explanation is that shiatsu calms an overactive sympathetic nervous system, which improves circulation, relieves stiff muscles, and alleviates stresss.

Shiatsu is very diverse, and depending on what your body/mind needs on the day, it can be very physical or very soft; deep and penetrating or light and gentle. It calms the nervous system, enhances blood circulation and redistributes and restores energy. Shiatsu helps improve suppleness and flexibility in the joints. It will also stimulate the circulatory and the lymphatic systems and assists in regulating the functioning of internal organs by its direct effect on the nervous system.

It is a therapeutic practice that can support individuals in moving towards greater health and well-being.

Shiatsu is a relaxing treatment and can be beneficial for back pain, stress, headaches, whiplash injuries, neck stiffness, joint pain and reduced motibility and many sports injuries amongst other ailments.
