Treating The Whole Body

TCM Philosophy sees all things as being interrelated and the body is viewed as a whole rather than as separate entities. For this reason, a shiatsu therapist will always aim to treat the whole body, thus affecting the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual aspects of the individual simultaneously.

At the psychological level, negative emotions are known to disrupt the harmonious balance of Ki energy. Stress and tension can accumulate in the tissues of the body and often manifest as feelings such as sadness, anger, depression, nervousness and anxiety.

The gentle, comfortable pressure of shiatsu produces a deep stimulus in the body. This serves to activate the parasympathetic nervous system and results in a profound state of relaxation. It is during this time that the body is able to let go of unwanted emotions, and release stored tension and stress. As the body’s own powerful self-healing mechanism is stimulated, the client experiences a feeling of overall well-being.

Shiatsu is a wonderful therapy that promotes healing of the whole person as a maintenance of good health and the prevention of illness. It is safe, effective, and can be enjoyed by people of all ages and all walks of life.
