When I give Shiatsu I feel your energy as it wants to present itself to me. Each treatment is tailored to your whole health picture. Together we are looking at the imbalances of your energy and how they manifest in your being. My touch is reminding your body of how it is in balance. And this is what helps your being to heal itself.
I believe that we have an innate wish to feel balanced. Often life is throwing us of that balance. So we get stressed, anxious, moody, depressed, live with PMS, menstrual cramps and other menstrual cycle related symptoms, feel the tension in our muscles, have insomnia or digestive issues. I have experienced Shiatsu to be a brilliant therapy to balance your energy and therefore your health. And as result live a more harmonious and calm life.
Shiatsu originates in Japan. The practise consists of pressure on the body of the receiver with hand palm and thumb as well as joint rotations and stretches. Through the pressure and movement the energy in the body is brought into flow which promotes and strengthens the body’s own healing abilities.
Shiatsu works with principles and theories of the thousands of years old Classical Chinese Medicine and the use of Ki to heal the body, mind and soul. Ki is the life energy that flows within the body. The flow of it is especially heightened in pathways called Meridians. Shiatsu practitioners work with Ki and bring the flow of Ki within the Meridians in balance.
As a holistic practice, concentrating on the connection between mind, body and soul, Shiatsu is bringing comfort and helping to promote the healing process of physical as well as emotional and psychological ailments.
