Shiatsu is a bodywork therapy originating from Japan and adapted from the acupuncture system of classical Chinese medicine. It uses a combination of manual therapeutic techniques, such as light kneading, gentle pressing and holding, rotation and stretching. No needles are used and there is no need to undress for a Shiatsu.
Shiatsu is a deeply relaxing experience which helps to restore the body’s vital Ki energy.
The essence of Shiatsu is holistic: its approach is rooted in an understanding of the whole person comprised of multidimensional levels affecting their body, mind, emotions and spirit.
Stimulating the body’s natural healing ability, it aims to reduce symptoms of tension, providing relief not only for your body but your mind as well. It is a natural way to help you relax and cope with stress, anxiety, depression and pain.
Clients report relief from a range of issues, including neck, shoulder and back pain, reduced mobility, rigidity and stiffness, spasms and muscle tension, GI tract problems, headaches, sleep disturbance.
Shiatsu therapist Monica Konrad tailors each session to your individual needs. She also teaches self-shiatsu, a way to continue your Shiatsu experience as holistic self-care outside of the clinic.
