What exactly is Shiatsu?
Shiatsu is an ancient Japanese method of therapy, its origins can be found in Chinese medicine. Through Shiatsu, the life energy (Qi or Ki) found in the body meridians are stimulated, and energy is brought into motion. If the harmonious flow of Ki is blocked, it can result in mood or emotional disturbances, thus leading to illness. With Shiatsu it is possible to harmonise the energy flow within the body.
Shiatsu is a holistic form of therapy and the treatment is mainly carried out on the floor (on mats) without any aids or supports. By applying pressure to the body meridians, with the use of fingers, hands elbows or knees until the necessary reaction is reached.
Shiatsu stimulates the autonomous central nervous system, and has a balancing, relaxing or stimulatory effect as well as encouraging a sense of general well being. It activates the natural healing process in the body, strengthening the immune system therefore protecting against illness and disease.
