Shiatsu Shin Tai
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. Client remains fully clothed.
Detox for Hara and Kidneys.
A Ginger Compress dissolves stagnation in the body both physically and in the flow of energy. It helps relieve tension, breaks up mucus, soften hardened accumulations of proteins, minerals, and fatty deposits in the organs. A Ginger Compress naturally stimulates circulation to speed up the healing process while also assisting with the excretion of toxins.
CranioSacral Therapy was developed by Dr. John Upledger. It seeks to release tension in the Central Nervous System thus supporting all the physiological systems in the body. Using a very gentle, light touch your body is brought into a very deep state of relaxation where the body can self-correct and free itself of pain and discomfort. Client remains fully clothed.
John F. Barnes Myofascial Bodywork
John F. Barnes Myofascial Release was developed by John F. Barnes. This therapy seeks to release restrictions in the fascial system. Restrictions may be caused by injury, surgery, and/or trauma. Gentle and authentic healing may occur through this approach. Client remains clothed.

What will a Shiatsu Shin Tai Bodywork session feel like?
A Shiatsu Shin Tai session is performed on a futon or table with the client fully clothed. No oils or creams are used. The practitioner usually begins with a light rocking and stretching of the body. The work then continues to involve Meridians and Points, Fascia, Central Channel work – Governing Vessel and the Meninges, Cranial Sacral elements, Hara Work and Conception Vessel.

How will I feel after the Shiatsu Shin Tai Bodywork session?

After an initial period of feeling slowed down, people often experience increased energy, heightened awareness, and greater productivity which can last for days. People also notice a deeper sense of self and what supports them.
What are the benefits and bodywork and massage?
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 or massage 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.
