What can it do for you?
Shiatsu is a Japanese manual therapy based on both Traditional Chinese Medicine and anatomy. It involves the application of sustained pressure to specific points. It takes a holistic approach and is a full-body treatment, but can be more focused. As no oils are used, the patient can remain fully clothed. Pressure can be quite deep or very gentle and is always adjusted to suit the comfort and health of the patient.
Pressure to these points can:
• Increase circulation
• Release muscular tension
• Relieve pain
• Help muscles, ligaments, nerves and vital organs to function at their best
Shiatsu is used as preventive care, for relaxation and to treat specific conditions, both chronic and acute. It is particularly effective for:
• Repetitive strain injuries and overuse syndromes
• Migraines and headaches
• Fibromyalgia and chronic pain
• Rheumatoid or osteoarthritis
• Managing stress and anxiety
There is some evidence-based research on Shiatsu. Studies have shown it is beneficial for pain, sleep, tension, stress, anxiety, depression & structural problems.
