Shiatsu literally means 'finger pressure' in Japanese, and is a type of massage therapy derived from Traditional Chinese Medicine. A Shiatsu practitioner applies palm and thumb pressure along the energy pathways on the recipient's body to encourage the flow of Life Force or Qi. There are twelve main energy pathways (known as meridians) in the human body. Each meridian is connected to an internal organ and transports the vital energy of that organ to the rest of the body. Smooth flow of energy is essential for a balanced body, mind & spirit; should this flow be interrupted, physical, mental and emotional imbalances may occur. Shiatsu can increase self-awareness and self-development; it balances the underlying needs of a condition and therefore addresses both physical and emotional issues. Shiatsu strengthens the body's immunity, increases the body's energy level, blood circulation and promotes the natural self-healing process. Shiatsu is also known as 'acupuncture without needles' or acupressure. Anyone can receive Shiatsu, regardless of their age. Some people visit their Shiatsu practitioner simply for the relaxation benefits, whilst others seek help with a variety of more specific conditions. Shiatsu is performed fully clothed on a cotton-filled futon. During your session the practitioner will apply thumb pressure to your body, including head, arms, legs and feet. Yoga stretches may be carried out, depending on the nature of your condition. Exercise and dietary recommendations are often given at the conclusion of the treatment. Shiatsu can assist in: backache and sciatica, headache and migraine, shoulder and neck pains, fatigue and stress management, insomnia, pregnancy, digestive problems, depression, low libido, high blood pressure, , work related and sport injuries, and weight loss.
