When you arrive for your shiatsu treatment, you may be aware of painful or tense spots in your body, or a constant stream of thoughts and emotions. As you receive your treatment, you experience a sense of relaxation in your muscles and a smoothing and deepening of your breath. Your thoughts flow more gently as you approach the stillness at the center of your being.
Zen Shiatsu is a form of bodywork that treats a wide range of health concerns and creates a healing state of deep relaxation. During a treatment, clients wear loose, comfortable clothing. The practitioner stretches and mobilizes the limbs, while applying acupressure to specific acupoints and meridians. In addition to being a powerful preventative therapy, Zen Shiatsu can alleviate chronic and acute pain, insomnia, digestive problems, stress, anxiety, fatigue, and much more. It is a gentle yet deep therapy, which is particularly nourishing for people weakened by chronic illness.
