Zen Shiatsu

 

Zen Shiatsu is a style of bodywork developed in Japan and is one of the World’s oldest form of massage, sharing the same knowledge and theory of acupuncture from meridian energy work, (for its roots come from Chinese medicine) but uses finger pressure instead of needles. Its name comes from two Japanese words: "shi" or finger and "atsu" or pressure.

Ideal for anyone, especially for those who don’t fell comfortable removing their clothes, neither using oils on the skin, very practical anytime being oil free after the treatment, rather a pleasant must have experience!

Shiatsu is an amazing and powerful style of massage therapy practiced for centuries to enhance the body's balance as well as emotional, psychological, and spiritual harmony.

Its goal is to restore the healthy flow of energy throughout the body.
Through skilful application of gentle touch and pressure of hands, fingers, thumbs, palms and sometimes elbows and knees, combined with passive stretching to induce deep relaxation, enhance health, and promote an overall feeling of tranquillity, and heightened wellbeing.

 

What Happens During a Shiatsu Session?

During the Shiatsu treatment you wear loose clothing. It is usually performed on a comfortable mat on the floor. The practitioner will use their hands, fingers and thumbs to apply pressure to specific points on the body's energy pathways, known as meridians.

As well using other techniques such as gentle rocking, stretches and joint rotations to induce flexibility, reduce tensions and promote relaxation.

The Zen Shiatsu treatment has a meditative felling to it... and is holistic addressing the whole Body and Mind rather than focusing on the one area where symptoms are most obvious, leaving the receiver fully relaxed with a warm feeling, some clients often fall asleep as result of its benefits and calming effects...

A shiatsu session usually lasts between 45 minutes and an hour.
