What is Shiatsu?
Shiatsu is a traditional non-invasive holistic therapy. Originating from Japan and based on the principles of Chinese medicine. Shiatsu uses the power of touch and gentle stretching techniques to contact acupressure points and energetic pathways (meridians). For many reasons the meridians can become blocked and imbalanced.
Shiatsu aims to bring energy to the areas most in need and disperse energy from where it has become blocked and as a result helping to restore harmony to the whole body.
Shiatsu can help ease tension and stiffness, help improve breathing, posture and circulation and enhance general well-being. There are many benefits of Shiatsu
What to expect ?
Each session lasts approximately an hour, with the first session lasting longer to help build up a picture of the clients past and present health / life style.

The client remains fully clothed throughout.
