Shiatsu is an energetic healing art which can address and support many energetic complaints as well as physical discomfort and injury. it is comprised of massage with fingers, thumbs, elbow, knuckle, feet and palms. We use acupressure and assisted stretching, some of which are common to other therapies, such as massage, physiotherapy, osteopathy, lymphatic drainage, on a futon on the ground, and work via the meridians (energy lines) of the body.
With origins in 8th century Japan and incorporating the complex principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine now taught within a framework of western medical science, I love this modality for the benefits and relief available from issues including:
Chronic & acute pain
Stuck-ness in life (blocks) or depression
Stress & anxiety
Emotional, sleep or digestive disturbances
Physical & emotional trauma
Fatigue, withdrawal and burnout
Exercise, food and lifestyle issues
Acknowledgement and Respect to the Traditional Custodians of country throughout Australia and their connections to spirit, land, sea and community, Elders past and present and emerging, and all their peoples today.
