Shiatsu is a form of hands-on therapy. It is generally given on a futon mat on the floor & the client is fully clothed. It uses a lot of different massage techniques & can be quite a physical form of massage when appropriate. Shiatsu originates from Japan & uses the same points & lines of energy in the body that Acupuncture & Accupressure use.
The aim of a treatment is to balance the energies in the body. With this balance can come a relief from symptoms. It is also a very relaxing & satisfying form of massage therapy.
A session lasts an hour with 40 to 45 minutes of actual hands-on work. There is a short consultation at the beginning to discuss the client’s health & wishes for the treatment.
Shiatsu is different every time, it is based on how the client is right then, that day, that hour. It is tailored specifically to their needs.
I offer Shiatsu massage in Exeter & Dawlish, in Devon. I work part-time, I look after my two young boys as well. I work Wednesdays & Saturdays at present but in the Autumn I will be offering other days.
I am always happy to talk Shiatsu so feel free to get in touch through the ‘contact me’ page.
