Shiatsu is a form of holistic bodywork based on traditional Chinese medicine that supports and strengthens the body’s natural ability to heal and balance itself.
It works on the whole person, considering the physical, psychological, emotional and spiritual aspects of being. Shiatsu is used to treat people with a wide range of health conditions, any stress-related problems and for preventative health care. Regular treatments can help to alleviate stress and illness and maintain health.
A Shiatsu treatment
Your practitioner will treat you fully clothed (including socks) and you will lie on a comfortable padded futon or massage couch. You will be covered with a sheet or blanket to keep you warm and then you will enjoy comfortable pressure and gentle stretches and rotations to adjust your body, and balance its energy flow. It is a deeply relaxing experience, and is also likely to leave you feeling energised after your treatment.
After an initial series of treatments to address specific symptoms, many clients choose to continue receiving regular treatments, typically once a month, as part of their positive approach to maintaining their health and well-being.
Shiatsu is now a popular therapy around the world. The professional Association for Shiatsu in the UK is the Shiatsu Society and members will have the letters MRSS (member of the register of the Shiatsu Society) after their name.
Jane Sheehan, our Shiatsu practitioner, will look at your overall state of health, the symptoms you are experiencing and then put together a treatment plan which is tailored to your individual needs.
