For centuries the ancient techniques of shiatsu massage have been devoted to the natural healing of numerous health issues. Shiatsu helps treat:
- Slow digestion
- Spine and neck pain
- Menstrual pain
Shiatsu massage ensures the harmony of body and mind, as it combines the wisdom, knowledge, and experience of alternative healing. The massage is done employing various massage techniques where the therapist uses his/her fingers, knuckles, palms, elbows, knees, and feet. The therapist also uses his/her own bodyweight, which is the reason why the massage is done on the floor on a special mattress. Light clothes are worn so that the therapist can apply pressure on the acupressure points and eliminate energy blockades.
The touch is the foundation of oriental medicine
The magic process of self-healing is based on the right touch applied in the right place. Shiatsu is a relaxing massage technique that ensures therapeutic effects. It is a gentler form of physiotherapy where touch is used to stretch and relax muscles in order to harmonize the energetic system. In a way, shiatsu is both therapy and a preventive method, as it boosts energy levels in the body, prevents disturbances in the system, and repairs the damage caused by stress, injury, or sickness. As this kind of massage is done wearing light and comfortable clothes, it is suitable also for those who are shy, not yet acquainted with massages or those who might find the touch on bare skin a bit unpleasant.
