Shiatsu is a form of traditional Japanese bodywork which stimulates the body's natural healing ability and is a deeply relaxing experience. The philosophy underlying shiatsu is that vital energy (ki in Japanese) flows through the body in a series of channels called meridians. When ki stops flowing freely it produces a symptom and shiatsu helps to rebalance and improve the quality of ki through touch, increasing feelings of wellbeing. Shiatsu is a therapy which treats each individual uniquely and holistically. The treatment usually takes place on a futon and the client remains fully clothed. To have shiatsu you should wear loose, warm, comfortable clothing such as a sweatshirt, tracksuit trousers and socks. The practitioner considers your state of health according to the principles of oriental medicine and uses a variety of techniques including pressure along the meridians and specific pressure points as well as more dynamic rotations and stretches.
