What Is Shiatsu Massage

Shiatsu, Shiatsu Massage & Acupressure in Central London, London, Kentish Town, Belsize Park, Camden, Tufnell Park, N7, NW3, NW5 for back pain, stress, depression, digestion, fertility, infertility, pregnancy, menopause, migraines, headaches, insomnia, sleep, sciatica, repetitive strain Injury (RSI), myalgic Encephalopathy (ME), Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS)
Aims Of Shiatsu

Shiatsu massage is a gentle & subtle yet powerful therapy. The shiatsu therapy is a pleasurable, nourishing and deeply relaxing deep tissue massage. The shiatsu treatment is performed through clothing as the effects are on the energetic, muscular, skeletal, emotional and physiological levels. Shiatsu massage is a holistic complementary health treatment which helps stimulate circulation, improve our immune system, reduce stress levels and treat specific body aches and pains. The aim of shiatsu massage is to re-balance your energy (qi), which determines your vitality & immune system.

Shiatsu Background

Shiatsu massage developed as a fusion of traditional Chinese medicine and Japanese and western anatomical physiology. Shiatsu massage uses hara (traditional abdominal diagnosis), and visual scanning to diagnose our subtle imbalances.

How Shiatsu Massage Works

  • Shiatsu therapy gently & effectively helps to realign your bone structure, joints, tendons & muscles, in order to optimise & maintain your health. A shiatsu therapist may use thumbs (thumbing), fingers, palms (palming), elbows and even feet to apply pressure to specific points along meridians - invisible channels beneath the skin. Stretches and rotations are used to help loosen the joints and limbs and open-up the energy channels.
  • Shiatsu massage stimulates the blood circulation and lymphatic flow around the body. It releases stagnant blood in the skin and muscles.
  • Shiatsu therapy works by removing blockages in the energy channels (meridian lines through which our "chi" energy flows) which correspond to the organ systems of the lungs, heart, spleen, liver, gall bladder, kidney and bladder, small intestine and large intestine, so the body, the body is bought back into internal harmony.
  • Bringing about a deep state of relaxation, Shiatsu massage helps maintain our internal stability & equilibrium (homoeostasis), working with the body's own self-healing mechanisms by balancing your vital energy systems.
  • Shiatsu massage stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system response. In this way shiatsu therapy helps our digestive system, breathing, skin, sexual & reproductive system to function more effectively. Our "fight or flight" system is less in reaction. This is why we tend to feel so relaxed after a shiatsu treatment. Some people also report that their digestion is soothed & breathing enhanced.
  • In summary shiatsu massage is about re-balancing our vital energy which determines our day-to-day energy levels, our vitality and our resistance to disease. Shiatsu massage treats holistically and embraces the oriental tradition of wholeness and interconnectedness and living in harmony with nature's cycles and rhythms. The aim of internal harmony matches the philosophy of fitting into nature's cycles.

You will be asked to remove shoes and jewellery and wear loose comfortable clothing. It is not advisable to have a heavy meal, consume alcohol or drugs before shiatsu massage.
