A combination of acupressure points, gentle manipulation and stretching 

What is Shiatsu? 

Shiatsu is a physical therapy which uses a combination of acupressure points, gentle manipulation and stretching to re-energise weak areas and reduce tension in the body. By applying sensitive, mindful, static touch with thumbs, fingers and palms, the Shiatsu practitioner affects the functioning of physical systems such as nervous, circulatory and respiratory, thus supporting the body’s innate self-healing abilities and promoting a sense of relaxation and wellbeing.

A Holistic Approach 

A better understanding ourselves, the world and our place in it.

Each Shiatsu session is tailored to the needs of the client 

Shiatsu touch, in its stillness, depth and gentle compassion, is able to support the whole person. Originating in Japan, Shiatsu incorporates influences from both East Asian Medicine and Western medicine. It offers a holistic approach enabling an understanding of how the physical, spiritual, and emotional aspects of your being work together. If one part of your body is not aligned, the rest of you will likely notice. 

Practitioners are empowered with the tools to provide better care and have meaningful interactions, with each Shiatsu session tailored to the needs of the individual.
