Shiatsu is a healing art originating in Japan that uses the network of meridians – the energetic system of the body -, which relates to the internal organs and the aspects of our psyche. We are systems interconnected in all our levels and parts.

Shiatsu is a dynamic form, involving firm pressure and stretching of the limbs and torso, kneading and releasing tight muscles, and supporting areas of weakness.

Shiatsu is deeply relaxing and invigorating, leaving a feeling of stillness and a sense of being in touch with all our body.

In a Shiatsu session the therapist gives pressure with thumbs, fingers, palms and elbows to induce relaxation, release tensions and energise. Shiatsu massage acts on the nervous system, improving the physical and emotional response to our internal and external world.

After treatments, people often describe feeling a sense of relaxed energy and a clearer mind.

Shiatsu is a nurturing technique that aims to connect with our source of energy, and proves to be successful in treating stress and chronic fatigue.

Regular Shiatsu treatments help to boost the immune system and enhance general health and well-being, supporting the body processes through periods of readjustment and realignment.
