When should you use Shiatsu?
Unlike normal massage, Shiatsu works with the body’s acupressure points and therefore has a direct effect on the body’s energy system. Shiatsu therapy works especially to remedy and provide relief for specific complaints such as headaches and migraine, whiplash, neck and shoulder complaints, Pre-Menstrual Syndrome, sports injuries and the symptoms of rheumatism. Having regular Shiatsu treatments will also increase your stamina, stimulate your digestive system, improve your concentration, alleviate stress and calm your body and mind.
Your capacity for self-healing
Shiatsu reinforces your own self-healing capacities, helping you to stay healthy and become healthier. We can also look for practical ways to improve your health and well-being, so that you gain a greater insight into what works best for you, to help you to make the wisest choice for you in daily situations. The Chinese theory of the Five Elements can also open up new perspectives in the search for new solutions.
Supporting your own health and well-being
The immediate effect of a Shiatsu treatment is always deep relaxation, but the treatment also has an after-effect. Each person responds differently. If you lead a busy and stressful life, regular Shiatsu treatments can help to keep your life in balance. During times of significant change in your life, Shiatsu can provide welcome support.
N.B. Shiatsu can never replace a medical diagnosis by your doctor.
