Shiatsu (literally meaning finger pressure) is a pathway to self healing and the healing of others. Shiatsu applies manual and digital pressure to the skin with the aim of preventing and curing illness by stimulating the body’s natural powers of recuperation, eliminating fatigue-producing elements, and promoting general good health.
Receiving a Shiatsu Treatment
A full shiatsu treatment lasts for 60 to 90 minutes. Shiatsu is administered fully clothed, wearing loose, comfortable clothing, on a comfortable pad on the floor. Metal should not be worn during the treatment as it can affect the benefit of Shiatsu. As well as watches and jewellery, this includes metal in your clothing like zips and underwire.
