WHAT IS SHIATSU MASSAGE
Shiatsu massage is different from other types of therapeutic massage as is a static massage, which means pressure is applied to the point or part while the hand is still - most other forms apply pressure while the hand is moving over the skin. Shiatsu massage is performed on the floor using a Shiatsu mattress. Pressure is applied along the meridians and your limbs are flexed and rotated in a similar fashion to Thai massage.

WHY IS IT GOOD FOR ME?
When Yin and Yang are in harmony, good health results; however, when imbalanced, illness can arise. Shiatsu massage helps to keep these crucial energies in balance.

In Shiatsu massage there is a law used in combination with the five elements - wood, fire, metal, water and earth - which assumes Qi (energy) flows through the meridians (energy lines within the body) in a set sequence. Since the meridians are associated with organs in the body, balancing this energy flow can facilitate healing and help alleviate symptoms of illness. More generally, Shiatsu massage is a very calming, relaxing therapy experience that is great for tension and stress.

HOW SHOULD I PREPARE?
  • Please avoid eating a meal or drinking alcohol at least two hours before a massage. 
  • To help eliminate the toxins from your body, drink water before as well as after your massage.
  • The client needs to be comfortable in light clothing.

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT?

A warm friendly welcome, a consultation for Shiatsu massage to find where there may be imbalances and to ensure all your personal needs are met, soft room lighting, relaxing back ground music, and a comfortable Shiatsu mattress to lie on.
