Shiatsu is a Japanese hands-on non-invasive complementary therapy.  It is unique in that it is usually carried out fully clothed.  Shiatsu means finger (Shi) pressure (atsu).  A Shiatsu practitioner will use gentle finger and palm pressure, stretches, and rotations on the meridians/channels of the body.

The role of the Shiatsu practitioner is to help activate the natural healing and recuperative powers of the client. Regular treatments are important when there is a chronic condition, but Shiatsu is most effective when used preventively. The cumulative effect of treatments helps to strengthen the immune system, tonify organs, and keep the body’s energy and blood flowing smoothly.  Read more…

We are the new generation!

We propose to:
