Zen Shiatsu Therapy

Posted in Other Services

Zen Shiatsu is a style of bodywork intended to move energy (Chi) along the energy pathways of the body. A Shiatsu massage brings total relaxation and mindfulness to the recipient as the therapy releases tension and focuses on freeing areas of stagnation or blocked energy. The practitioner applies light pressure along the body´s meridian lines using his/her palms, fingers, thumbs, elbows, and sometimes knees and feet to a fully clothed client. This form of bodywork creates a feeling of balance and well being by increasing circulation, improving flexibility, and energizing and soothing the nervous system. It is recommended for the relief of headaches, cramps, back pain, allergies, and much more. Done regularly, a Zen Shiatsu treatment is an excellent preventative “medicine”.
