Shiatsu Massage deeply supports the health of the body and mind and offers long lasting relaxation. This complementary therapy offers all the benefits of an oriental approach to health, blending the joy of massage with the health benefits of harmonising our body’s essential energy, Qi.
The Shiatsu practitioner uses their hands to apply skilful touch, massage, movement, and stretches to support the Qi of the body back into a tranquil homeostatic state. This promotes deep calm, good posture, emotional stability, and healthy vitality.
The Shiatsu practitioner focuses upon the quality and nature of Qi in different meridians. These are pathways of Qi that flow through the body that support the tissues and bodily workings of the whole person. By massaging, holding and moving this Qi in an appropriate way the body can be balanced in its’ entirety.
Shiatsu Massage can help to promote postural alignment, flexibility, healthy bodily functions, stabilise emotions, stave off stress, and thus offers deep calm, relaxation, vitality and good health.
