Japanese Acupressure Massage
Shiatsu is recognised all over the world. It is a massage technique that stimulates acupressure points.
A Shiatsu Therapist uses finger and palm pressure, stretches, rolling and patting.
When finger pressure is applied to Tubo (acupressure points) you may feel a sensation between pain and pleasure. Many people enjoy this pleasure/pain sensation. Receiving Shiatsu is an enjoyable experience, a tonic for the body and mind.
Shiatsu techniques :
- stimulate qi flow in the meridians – invigorating blood circulation
- alleviate pain
- relax muscles
- calm the mind.
Shiatsu can also treat a variety of ailments:
- acute and chronic musculoskeletal conditions
- digestive disorders
- respiratory problems
- mental health issues such as anxiety and depression.
When doing Shiatsu to treat health problems, I often use it in conjunction with acupuncture, as I have found this gives maximum therapeutic results.
I am confident you will enjoy Shiatsu therapy and will feel revitalized by it.
What I like about Shiatsu is that it is a hand-on treatment, so it is a very comforting and nurturing form of therapy.
It is natural to put your hands on the site of pain — a child’s sore tummy, or perhaps your own head, because this gives comfort and may even take some of the pain away. Hands themselves have a lot of healing power.
I’m now converted; I’ll be contacting Sachie in the first instance if I suffer from any further health issues.
