What is Shiatsu?
Shiatsu is an Asian massage method to balance the energy flowing through the body.

How is Shiatsu done?
Pressure is applied to meridians (the vessels of energy that flow through the body) and acupuncture points (the relay stations on the course of energy flow). There are 14 meridians and numerous acupuncture points to work on. Traditionally, Shiatsu is done with the client dressed in loose clothing, on a mat on the floor, but it can also be done on a table, especially when combining it with other massage techniques.

How does the practitioner come up with a treatment plan?
Treatment plan is based on the five-element theory like Chinese medicine, Feng Shui or Tai Chi.

What’s the main benefit of a Shiatsu session?
Shiatsu is deeply relaxing. It helps rejuvenate muscles, nervous and visceral systems. It also facilitates balance within these systems. And can enhance the body-mind connection.
