Shiatsu Therapy

Shiatsu Therapy is a unique non-invasive manual therapy. The theory behind Shiatsu is based on Eastern Medical Theory. Originating in Japan, Shiatsu literally translates to “finger pressure”. The therapist will use comfortable sustained pressure using thumbs, palms and elbows. Comfortable pressure is applied to all parts of the client’s body. The appropriate technique is used according to the degree of pressure required by the physical condition.

Shiatsu has a regulatory influence on the body’s autonomic nervous system as well as conserving functions of the parasympathetic branch of the nervous system. It helps to calm the body’s overactive fight or flight response. Shiatsu works to improve organ functioning and reduce muscle tension. This allows the body the space and time to heal itself and restore normal functioning.

Shiatsu is a holistic therapy. The theory behind Shiatsu views the body as being inseparable, one without divisions between mind and body. The mind and body seen as one construct are inseparable from the functioning of the whole. The environment around us also is thought to influence our health. Such as a stressful situation at work may present itself in the form of a headache.  The therapist will treat the whole body with concentration on the specific problem.

Shiatsu is beneficial to a wide range of conditions acute and chronic. Common conditions that Shiatsu will treat are: muscular stiffness, digestive issues, headaches, PMS, fatigue, insomnia, emotional stress, anxiety, back, neck and shoulder pain.


What can I expect during a Shiatsu Treatment?
During a treatment, no oils are used. Clients are dressed in loose comfortable clothing. Your therapist will use a variety of manual techniques including pressure, kneading and stretching to relax and stimulate healing.

A treatment is usually an hour long but in some cases an hour and a half may be requested.

Christie has been practising as a Shiatsu Therapist for over 20 years. She is a graduate of a 2200-hour program including courses such as Pathology, Anatomy, Physiology, Nutrition and Eastern Medical Theory.
