Remedial & relaxation
Massage promotes healing by increasing circulation and blood flow, resulting in improved physical and mental wellbeing. Massage can assist the healing of specific injuries or trauma to the body. In addition, massage can be used to aid the relief of stress, headaches and migraines, chronic pain, insomnia, depression, anxiety, and many other health complaints.
Originating in Japan, Shiatsu is based on similar principles to acupuncture – using thumbs palms, knees, elbows and even barefoot styles of Shiatsu, the practitioner activates pressure points to achieve smooth circulation of Ki or “energy” throughout the meridian system (channels of Ki). Shiatsu incorporates acupoints, muscle meridian stretches, and corrective exercises to address any existing states of stagnation, deficiency, or excess, that can occur within these channels. Oriental Therapies may also be incorporated throughout a treatment, to strengthen the body’s ability to heal, expel a pathogen, or to help relieve pain and tension, including:
• Moxibustion (heat therapy)
• Gu Sha (spooning technique
• Soi Tai (muscle release technique)
• TMT root & branch treatment (Japanese needling)
Shiatsu can have a powerful restorative effect and long-lasting health benefits for those seeking to address a particular health problem, pursuing preventative healthcare, or looking for a relaxing space to unwind.
