Shiatsu treatment

Revcieving Shiatsu is often a deeply relaxing experience.

shiatsu is very relaxing
A shiatsu treatment is usually given on a padded mat (futon) at floor level. However if you are unable to lie down, you can receive a Shiatsu treatment sitting on a chair. Unlike Swedish or Californian massage, during a Shaitsu tretament you remain fully clothed and no oil is used.

During a Shiatsu session, a variety of techniques are used to rebalance your energy flow. These may include gentle holding, pressing with palms, thumbs, fingers, elbows, knees or feet. When appropriate, more dynamic stretches are used. The techinque is adapted to how you are on the day of your treatment.

When receiving a treatment, it is best to wear loose, comfortable clothes. For women, please avoid skirts or dresses as they can restrict some movements and stretches. Please also avoid make-up since it prevents diagnosis based on skin complexion.

Do not eat heavily in hours prior to treatment. But don't come "starving" either!

After your treatment...
Drink plenty of water
Avoid alcohol
If possible avoid strenuous or stressful activities.
