Shiatsu, literally translated, means “finger pressure”. It is a traditional hands on Japanese healing therapy which has its roots in ancient Oriental medicine. It is the sister therapy to acupuncture - but 

without the needles.


The philosophy underlying Shiatsu is that vital energy (known as Ki Japanese and Qi/Chi Chinese) flows throughout the body in a series of channels/pathways called meridians. For many different reasons, Chi can stop flowing freely and this then produces a symptom.


A Shiatsu practitioner will consider your state of health, the symptoms you are experiencing and, depending on your constitution and general energy levels, will use a variety of techniques to improve your energy flow. These may include gentle holding, pressing with palms, thumbs, fingers, elbows, knees and feet on the meridians and, when appropriate, more dynamic rotations and stretches.


As the quality of Chi changes, the symptoms associated with a lack of flow will gradually improve.

Shiatsu can be beneficial for a wide range of conditions – from specific injuries to more general symptoms of poor health.

What to expect in a Session

Each session will last approximately an hour. The first session maybe slightly longer as a detailed case history will need to be taken to provide a complete picture of your health.

The session usually takes place on a table, although, it is possible to receive Shiatsu sitting on a

chair if you are unable to lie down.

The client stays fully clothed.

Shiatsu can be a deeply relaxing experience and regular Shiatsu sessions help to strengthen the immune system and prevent the build up of stress in our daily lives.
