Welcome to Ki To Life Shiatsu

SHIATSU - A Natural Healing Discipline

SHI - (finger) ATSU - (pressure)

AN ANCIENT ART OF ACUPRESSURE MASSAGE

Shiatsu is an ancient form of bodywork therapy coming from the same oriental principles as Acupuncture. The main aim is to restore energy and help bring the body and mind to a more BALANCED state and this is done by working the body's vital energy flow along the energy channels of the body, known as MERIDIANS together with ACUPOINTS.

By manipulating these vital energy points through subtle stretching and pressure it assists in releasing BLOCKED/STUCK or STAGNATED energy known as Ki.

Although SHIATSU literally means 'finger pressure' thumbs, palms, knees and elbows can be used also to stimulate or sedate the Ki (energy) along the meridian network of the body. The whole form helps in many ways, it can simply be to relax, ease stress, energise and rejuvenate the body over all, help prevent illness and disease which commonly occur with us in today's fast moving society or to relieve symptoms, be it physical, emotional or psychological.

The form of bodywork is carried out through clothing which can make individuals feel much more comfortable and at ease when having work applied. In most cases this form of bodywork is carried out at floor level on a Futon (cotton mattress) but can be applied to the client while they sit on a stool or chair.

A session with myself will last around 1 hour + consultation. On initial visit Traditional Chinese Medicene (TCM), Five Elements and Zen Principles are drawn upon to conclude personal diagnosis of the client. Advice on diet and exercise may be given to individual clients throughout visits.

How will you feel after a Shiatsu session?

The treatment usually leaves a feeling of calmness and well-being, more in touch with one's body and self. There may be temporary 'healing reactions' as toxins and negative emotions can be released, this may take the form of a headache or flu like symptoms for around 24 hours. This is not uncommon and reassurance will be given.
