Shiatsu shares much of its background theory with acupuncture. Like acupuncture, Shiatsu stimulates the body's vital energy (known as Ki* in Japanese or Qi* in Chinese). Instead of needles, comfortable pressure is applied to various parts of the body and stretches, rocking movements and other techniques are used.
Shiatsu is calm and relaxing in nature, yet dynamic in effect; the body (and mind) begins to re-adjust itself and healing takes place.
*(Ki is the Japanese term and is pronounced like 'Key' Qi in Chinese language is pronounced 'Chee')
Who can benefit from Shiatsu?
Since this approach is working with the whole person, rather than simply focusing on conditions, most people, ill or healthy, and of all ages from babies to the elderly, can benefit from receiving Shiatsu.
Shiatsu is extremely useful in enhancing health and vitality and many people use it as part of a stress-management or preventative health care program.
Shiatsu is also excellent if you are feeling unwell but are suffering from no known medical condition. You do not have to be sick to benefit from Shiatsu, nor is it necessary to have a name for your condition.
People come to shiatsu for all kinds of reasons and they may come with specific ailments ranging from the acute to the more chronic.
