Shiatsu is a Japanese body therapy given to a FULLY CLOTHED client ('Shi'= finger; 'Atsu'= pressure). Gentle through to strong pressure is given to all parts of the body. It is energetic in nature, and follows some of the same principles used in Acupuncture treatments. Shiatsu can be received on a low table, futon or even in a chair.
The philosophy of Shiatsu has its background in Japanese, Indian and traditional Chinese medicine. Techniques are designed to harmonise the 'ki' or 'chi' flow of the body. Acupressure with thumbs, hands and arms are applied to 'tsubo' points and 'meridian' pathways across the surface of the body. Stretches and mobilisation to body parts can also be part of a treatment. This ancient tradition is used in order to encourage health changes to all body systems; occurring from surface all the way to the depth of the bones.
In your initial appointment Lilly will listen and ask questions about your health history and this is followed by a full-body hands-on treatment.
Shiatsu Therapy is beneficial for:
— back & neck problems
— muscle tension
— injury recovery
— lung and sinus problems
— emotional balance
— cancer support
— pregnancy and birth preparation
— headache & migraine
— pre & post surgery
— children & teens (growth, hormones, stress)
The effects and results of Shiatsu can feel subtle and yet profound. Results vary from overnight revelations to simply noticing after a few days that you just feel 'right' again, or a long-lost 'lightness' might return.
