Through sensitive touch a non-verbal communication is established between therapist and client, allowing their inner wisdom to guide the session to a meditative space where true, deep healing can occur. More than just massage, the energetic touch of Shiatsu helps stimulate and support your natural healing ability.
The work consists of gentle adjustments of bones and ligaments to balance your skeletal structure; finger pressure, kneading, and stretching to release tension in your muscles and tendons; and light pressure techniques that normalize the environment surrounding your central nervous system; optimizing neurological function, stimulating circulation and lymphatic drainage, and balancing your body's energetic flow.
Ultimately it all comes down to sensitive touch and the magic that happens when we communicate in an intuitive, intentional way. A Shiatsu session is a journey inward that leaves you in a wonderful relaxed yet energized state of equilibrium.
