Shiatsu, a Japanese variation of the ancient Chinese healing arts, literally means: ‘pressure of the fingers’. This pressure is exerted along the energy meridians on the body in order to help unblock stagnated life energy.
A Shiatsu treatment reconnects you to your center and your power. For people who are intimidated by the idea of being touched physically, this is a very safe method of bodywork, as there is no need to undress for a Shiatsu session.
Shiatsu can help alleviate symptoms such as:
- unrest, stress, feeling pressured
- sleeping problems
- fatigue, lack of energy
- apathy, depression
- low resistance to colds etcetera
- recurring headaches
- feelings of insecurity and overwhelm
- excessive worrying
Shiatsu is based on your own life energy (your qi or chi) and your self-healing power. In a healthy person, this energy flows freely through a network of energy channels all over the body, called the meridians. This free flow of energy can be distorted by for example unhealthy eating habits, physical or emotional stress, lack of exercise or a one-sided exertion of pressure on the body.
Stagnation versus free energy flow
A stagnation of your life energy will first show up in the form of vague complaints that people sometimes think they just need to learn to live with. These include recurring headaches, stress, fatigue, depressive feelings and low resistance. The body is already out of balance at this point, but the good news is that these complaints can be remedied relatively easy in the early phases.
A Shiatsu treatment is a very effective, tried and tested method to unblock energy stagnation so your qi can flow freely again. This will give your self-healing power a boost and alleviate any complaints. In this way, you can also prevent more drastic, chronic disturbances in your energy system, which otherwise might lead to more pronounced complaints and diseases.
What does a Shiatsu treatment look like?
After the intake interview, in which I get an overall idea of your complaints, you lay down on a massage table. There is no need to undress. With my thumbs, hand palms and my own bodyweight I will exert pressure along the energy channels (meridians) in your body.
