Investing in bodywork is an investment in your health and well-being.
Shiatsu is a form of Japanese Bodywork. It is performed on a futon or table with the client fully clothed. Most people feel very relaxed as the practitioner works by gently rocking, stretching and treating meridian pathways and points on the back, arms, legs, feet, hands, shoulders, neck, and head.
The meridian pathways in the body are where the body’s Ki flows. Ki is energy. More specifically, it is movement, communication, thoughts, feelings, respiration, digestion, and all other bodily functions. Ki is Life. Shiatsu Shin Tai further incorporates work with fascia, structure, craniosacral, and meningeal elements to release stress matrixes and recover Life Force.

What are the benefits and bodywork?
Bodywork can help release chronic muscular tension and pain, improve circulation, increase joint flexibility, reduce mental and physical fatigue and stress, promote faster healing of injured muscular tissue, improve posture, and reduce blood pressure. Bodywork is also known to promote better sleep, improve concentration, reduce anxiety and create an overall sense of well-being.
Are there any medical conditions that would make bodywork inadvisable?
Yes. That’s why it’s imperative that, before you begin your session, the practitioner asks general health questions. It is very important that you inform the practitioner of any health problems or medications you are taking. Depending on the condition, approval from your doctor may be required.
