A treatment from Le Shiatsu is a relaxing and energizing experience.

Based on your input, therapeutic techniques are tailored to your unique situation and can include:

  • Acupuncture

  • Shiatsu

  • Tuina (a form of massage taught to acupuncturists)

  • Moxibustion (bringing heat on selected acu-points)

  • Near Infrared lamp (soothing warmth that diffuses within the tissue under the skin of the treated area and stimulates cellular function and circulation)

  • Cupping (suction applied to a body part to move blockages).

Your treatment fee will be the same whether one or several of the above modalities are used during a session.

Treatments are beneficial to a variety of conditions and ages including children, teenagers, athletes, pregnant women, or seniors. Treatments can effectively impact both acute and chronic disorders. We focus on addressing the root cause of imbalances and take into account both physical and emotional issues. Rather than seeking a "quick fix", your therapist stimulates your own natural recuperative power. Symptoms are relieved from their origin, providing a solid foundation so that vitality is restored and enhanced.

We treat for a wide variety of conditions, looking at physical structures as well as the flow of Chi according to Traditional Chinese Medicine. This gives us effective methods to deal with musculo-skeletal issues as well as internal conditions.

Like with any form of therapy, there can be no guarantee that we will be able to deal with everything. In case we would not be able to offer the most suitable solution to your needs, we would do our best to refer you to someone else. Still, we often see people who struggled with severe symptoms for quite some time, tried many forms of conventional and complementary therapies, and we are grateful that they ended up finding a relief with our approach. Some issues can be resolved completely (e.g. challenging pains), while for others we focus on helping the person function better with less pain, fewer symptoms, and more energy (e.g. MS, Parkinson, cerebral palsy). We’ve observed that persistence pays off and that the learning along the journey make the process a worthwhile experience.

Below is a sample of issues we are or have been dealing with in our clinic:

  • Maintenance and prevention, athlete’s performance, aging gracefully

  • Injury recovery e.g. whiplash, trauma

  • Challenging pains e.g. persistent low back pain, neck/shoulder tension, arthritis, chronic pain, severe pain of recent onset such as sciatica

  • Chronic fatigue, low energy, fibromyalgia

  • Stress, anxiety, panic attacks, depression

  • Insomnia

  • Dizziness, vertigo, balance issues

  • Headaches

  • Women health issues (PMS, fertility, menopause)

  • Pregnancy, postpartum

  • Children, development challenges, autism

  • Neurological issues, Parkinson, cerebral palsy, MS

  • Digestive problems e.g. stomach burns, IBS, Crohn's

  • Acute and chronic respiratory issues, poor immunity
