Shiatsu is a manual therapy technique born in Japan in the early 20th century, but with roots more than 2000 years old.
It is at the crossroad of modern Western physiology and anatomy and ancient Eastern Traditional Medicine. It is sometimes described as acupuncture with the hands, but it is more than that.
The practitioner, through touch and gentle pressure, aims at adjusting the body balance, and gives a soothing and relaxing feeling, also helping on a mental and emotional level. Rotations of the articulations and stretching of the limbs will also improve the body condition and will help you keep in good shape.
Each session is tailored to your own needs, in your current situation. Two visits will never be the same!
Shiatsu is here to support you in your life and can help in a wide array of conditions such as: exhaustion, stress, headache, muscle tension, back pain, problems regarding digestion and menstruation, difficult life situations.
It can also be a treat to yourself or a loved one as it will improve your feeling for your own body and will increase your wellbeing.
Please note that Shiatsu cannot substitute a doctor’s advice, therefore a necessary medical treatment should not be interrupted, postponed or stopped.
