Stiff neck or shoulders, low energy levels, insomnia, digestive problems, irregular intestinal transit, back pains, mood change… If any of these seem familiar to you, then help could be at hand with a shiatsu massage.
After a massage, you might, for instance, experience relief from back pain, renewed energy or better intestinal transit. For some people, sleeping patterns are restored, there is less water retention, life seems more positive. These are some of the tangible results that can be experienced immediately after a shiatsu massage.
But, whatever physical improvements are experienced, a shiatsu massage also brings a feeling of profound and long-lasting wellbeing and relaxation.
A word or two about shiatsu
A shiatsu massage enables the body to re-discover its equilibrium, both physical and emotional. It generates deep relaxation, frees up the joints, relaxes the body, balances the emotions and harmonises the energy that circulates around our body’s meridians, thereby irrigating the organs.
A shiatsu massage involves gentle manipulation of the body, through slight pressure applied using the thumbs or palms of the hand. If greater pressure on the back is required by the person being massaged (e.g. by someone who practices sport), the elbow may be used to massage the body. The massage may be completed by stretching, in function of the person being massaged.
Shiatsu eliminates certain blockages that may exist in the body, thereby preventing them from becoming chronic. Like most oriental therapies, shiatsu aims to be preventative, by ensuring a constant flow of energy around all the body’s meridians and reducing as much as possible problems caused by imbalance. A treatment such as this would normally be carried out regularly roughly once a month.
