Introduction

Shiatsu is the bodywork partner of Remedial Yoga Therapy, two unique modalities that combine many aspects of Traditional Oriental Medicine theory and practice.

Shiatsu is a dynamic body therapy in which the therapist interacts with the receiver to restore balance in the energy system. It is founded on the Traditional Chinese Medicine theory that energy moves through channels within the body, known as meridians. Shiatsu practitioners aim to restore the balance through the meridians in order to promote health and strengthen the body’s healing abilities. Imbalance, that is, too little or too much qi, can manifest in various ailments, depending on which meridians are affected.

The role of the practitioner is to aid and support this naturally occurring process, helping clients discover what makes them healthy through self-development.

Shiatsu practitioners help balance and alleviate the underlying causes of physical and psychological conditions, promoting health and strengthening the body’s own healing abilities.

Shiatsu massage is incredibly effective because it incorporates physical diagnosis, pathophysiology (how the body becomes unwell), as well as the full range of flowing stretches, gentle rotations of joints and limbs, simple structural alignments and muscles release techniques.While stagnant energy in the body begins to clear, the body also receives stimulation in circulation and the flow of lymphatic fluid. This allows the release of toxins and tension in the muscular system and brings balance to the hormonal and nervous systems.
