What is Shiatsu in London?
Shiatsu is one of the most exceptionally relaxing treatments available today. It’s a form of bodywork that can bring about an incredible feeling of release from both mental and physical pain or tension.
SHIATSU, literally meaning finger pressure, was developed in Japan and is based on traditional Chinese medicine. The holistic full shiatsu body treatment combines the use of acupressure points and massage. Shiatsu shares the same philosophy and aims as acupuncture and is the massage part of this oriental treatment.
Shiatsu influences and balances the chi (energy which flows through your body). The shiatsu therapist works up and down the meridians feeling for excesses and deficiencies of energy. The shiatsu treatment is here performed on a teatment bench. During your first shiatsu appointment an assessment will be made in order to tailor the treatment to your needs.
What should I wear for Shiatsu?
Shiatsu works through clothes. Our shiatsu practitioner suggests you wear comfortable and loose clothing, preferably trousers and something to keep you warm.
