For those of you who don’t know Shiatsu is a form of hands-on therapy. It’s a bit like a massage, it uses massage techniques, but it is always given through clothing. Shiatsu is generally given on a futon mat on the floor but can be given on a couch or massage chair. It is a very relaxing treatment that can also leave a client feeling energised.
Shiatsu is suitable for all & can help with a great number of conditions. It can be helpful for long-term care & can have preventative benefits. I have had clients who have come for Shiatsu for various physical conditions including back ache, arthritis, hip issues, frozen shoulder, Sciatica & pelvic issues.
Shiatsu can also be helpful for emotional & mental concerns such as stress & anxiety. I have had clients come with issues such as work related stress, relationship breakdown or issues, high levels of anxiety & depression.
Pain is a common issue that people come for Shiatsu for, whether it is due to a recent accident or injury or a more chronic condition. Clients have found that Shiatsu has helped ease pain levels for some period after a treatment. Generally the pain relief lasts for longer & longer periods of time, as the client has more sessions. In my experience Shiatsu seems to have a very positive effect on joint pain, whether that is Arthritis or an injury or another issue.
Clients have often expressed that the mental strain of pain is almost as bad as the actual pain itself. Particularly if someone has lived with pain for a long period of time it can become an almost unbearable strain. Shiatsu is a very supportive treatment & it can provide comfort to the client, they may feel that they don’t have to manage it completely on their own. Shiatsu can also help with energy levels & with a little more energy a client may feel they have the resources to be able to make changes & not feel that the pain is in control of them.
I love giving Shiatsu & hearing, from clients, about the positive effects it has for them. If you would like to hear about events & offers then please like my Facebook page. If you have any questions then do get in touch through the Contact Me page.
