Shiatsu: What is it?
Shiatsu, Japanese 'finger pressure' therapy is a natural healing discipline springing from the same ancient Oriental principles as Acupuncture. Like Acupuncture, Shiatsu works by stimulating the body's vital energy flow (known as 'Ki' in Japanese) in order to promote good health. However, in Shiatsu, the practitioner uses thumbs and fingers, elbows and even knees and feet to apply pressure and stretching to the energy lines, known as meridians.
Physically this has the effect of stimulating the circulation and the flow of lymphatic fluid, working on both divisions of the autonomic nervous system, helping to release toxins and deep seated tension from the muscles and stimulating the hormone system.
On a more subtle level Shiatsu allows the receiver to relax deeply and get in touch with his/her own body's healing abilities.
Treatment usually leaves a feeling of calmness and well-being, of being more in touch with ones own body and self.
