Acupressure releases tension, increases circulation, reduces pain, and develops spirituality and vibrant health.
Shiatsu is a Japanese form of Acupressure massage based on the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Five Element Theory.
Shiatsu uses both the meridian and acupressure points to address disharmonies and imbalances within the body. When the acupressure points are stimulated, they release muscular tension, promote circulation of blood and enhance the body's life force energy to aid healing. Shiatsu addresses the individual as a whole being and can harmonize both the physical being as well as the emotional.
Thumb, finger and palm are used to work the meridians and acupressure points while the body is stretched and invigorated through rhythmic movement.
This is a 2 hr treatment and includes assessment. Please dress comfortably for your session.
