Shiatsu is a highly respected holistic therapy, which originated thousands of years ago in Japan. It combines the ancient wisdom of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) with modern understanding of the human body from current research on health, physiology and psychology. It is sometimes described as "Acupuncture without needles" and it does use all of the same points and channels (meridians) of energy, but it also involves much more.
I am currently offering reduced prices for online Guided Shiatsu and Distant Shiatsu. Each treatment is individually suited to your needs, whether you simply want to relax or have help with specific symptoms.
I guide you through simple techniques so you can tune into your energy (known as Chi, Ki or Qi) and find where in your body most treatment is most needed. I will then show you how to heal yourself with specifically chosen movements and stretches and by carefully applying pressure to relevant acupressure points and meridians (channels where the Chi flows).
Shiatsu strengthens your body's natural ability to balance and heal itself. Research shows shiatsu has a wide range of positive benefits and can help prevent and treat many physical, psychological and emotional symptoms:
Shiatsu can help you:
regain/maintain your health and well-being
feel more comfortable by releasing pain, tension and relieving many symptoms
improve your posture, breathing and circulation
feel calmer, more peaceful and content
improve the quality of your sleep
have a deeper connection to your emotions
increase awareness of yourself and your habits
be more in touch with your energy, vitality and enjoyment of life
Guided Shiatsu can be done using any application such as Zoom, or FaceTime or even over the phone. It is a wonderful way of feeling supported, listened to and cared for and you will learn new life-long skills to improve your health and happiness.
Shiatsu is beneficial for men and women of all ages, offering relief from both acute and chronic symptoms. It can also be an invaluable stabling influence during times of stress, uncertainty and any significant life events and changes.
Distance Shiatsu offers you the opportunity to enjoy the many benefits of a traditional treatment but from the comfort of your own home, while I work in mine. We arrange a convenient time then all you have to do is lie down, do nothing and rest afterwards! I will send you with my notes from the treatment and then you can share your experience of the shiatsu whenever suits you. Many people find Distant Shiatsu is even more powerful than a hands-on treatment. Why not try for yourself?
“The challenge for acceptance of such a radical view that the human biology is both an energy and matter field will come from many fronts but the fact is that the contemporary physics worldview fully supports this amalgamation of matter and energy. By understanding the subtle biologic energy field we can begin to understand not only the biological origins of disease but we can usher into our healing traditions a true system of disease prevention.” Dr. Bill Dean
