Shiatsu: A therapeutic massage to restore balance
Shiatsu is a Japanese massage that is based, among other things, on the pressure on the acupuncture points and on the work on the fascia through channel stretching.
Energy, which should circulate freely all around our body, can be blocked or stagnant and make us feel pain, tiredness or any other symptom.
Alternative to conventional medicine
If you are dealing with stress, anxiety, chronic pain, or other health problems, Shiatsu may be the solution you are looking for.
The ways of approaching Shiatsu are different, as well as medicine in general. You can come to a Shiatsu session to relieve physical tensions or states of anxiety, but Shiatsu will also help you, just as acupuncture does, to promote your health, to balance any imbalances that may exist in your body at this time and to prevent them from set in or progress to a physical illness.
The objective of Shiatsu is to stimulate and support the natural processes of self-healing, well-being and personal growth, and to maintain health by seeking the balance of the person’s vital energy.
The treatment is based on the application of pressure, energy and physical work on the channels (meridians) and on points to balance the circulation of the body’s vital energy (Ki or Chi).
