Perfect Balance Holistic Health
Shiatsu is a gentle, relaxing form of Japanese massage and stretches that is based on the philosophy of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Acupuncture. A Shiatsu massage aims to balance the flow of Qi (life’s fundamental energy, animating force, and substance)as it flows through well-defined energy channels in the body. Where Acupuncture accesses specific pressure points (tsubo) at a deep level, Acupressure stimulate the same tsubo at a more superficial and less invasive level. A Shiatsu massage works on the body’s energetic systems to promote physical, mental, spiritual health and well-being and stimulates the body’s inherent ability to heal itself.
Shiatsu massage is performed fully clothed, typically on a mat on the floor. Shiatsu Massage promotes an immediate feeling of personal balance and energy.
