Shiatsu is a holistic massage form, based on the philosophy of Yin and Yang and the five elements. It considers a person to be a part of the cosmic energy construction and uses various forms of diagnosis and treatment. Shiatsu stems from a centuries old tradition, which has over the years become the system that it is today - a practical treatment method, with an abundance of theory, which offers scope for further development.

Zen Shiatsu was developed by Shizuto Masunaga. It differs from other styles of Shiatsu by its emphasis on the traditional principles of Eastern Medicine, the meridian concept and the cooperation between the two hands. Zen Shiatsu therapy not only treats the pressure points, but the entire energy pathway.

A shiatsu treatment takes place while the receiver lays fully clothed on a futon on the ground (a simple cotton mattress) The therapist treats the whole body using a variety of techniques including light palm pressure, directed thumb pressure on the energy channels, stretches and rotations. Each treatment is different and aims to provide what the receiver most needs at that particular moment. The aim is to encourage the energy to flow where there is a blockage or stagnation, and to awaken energy with a gentle and attentive touch, in those areas where there is a deficiency. This holistic treatment is effective on a physical, mental and emotional level.

The treatment takes one hour. The first appointment may take slightly longer.

What does a treatment do?

Shiatsu is a nice way to relax physically and mentally and has a powerful effect on the general feeling of well-being. Shiatsu is a holistic treatment method. This means that we look at the possible cause of a complaint, in the energetic field. It stimulates the self-healing ability and promotes connection between body and mind.

Complaints such as burnout and emotional overstrain also respond well to Shiatsu therapy. Prevention is better than cure.
