Shiatsu is an acupressure technique to nourish and strengthen the body's natural healing abilities by ensuring that the flow of vital energy (ki) is running smoothly without stagnation, blockage or weakness. The treatment style can vary from very light and energetic to deep pressure.

Shiatsu replenishes the body's lymphatic, circulatory, digestive and nervous systems. Receiving regular treatments strengthens the body's immunity, improves digestion and sleep, processes impurities more effectively, promotes efficient functioning of the organs and increases one's energy. By addressing underlying imbalances, Shiatsu promotes a deeper physical, psychological and emotional awareness of the body.

Shiatsu is beneficial for the treatment of a wide-range of ailments, including:

  • Fatigue
  • Insomnia
  • Arthritis
  • Back Pain
  • Poor Posture
  • Migraines & Headaches
  • Neck and Shoulder Tension
  • Digestive Problems
  • Breathing Difficulties
  • Neurological Disorders
  • Anxiety and Depression
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • PMS & Menstrual Cycle Irregularities

On-site Chair Shiatsu

Deadlines and long hours at work can cause tremendous strain on the body and its immune system. Making fifteen-minute Shiatsu treatments available to employees on a weekly or monthly basis can decrease stress levels, improve focus and clarity and strengthen immune response, all of which promote productivity.
