Shiatsu is a Japanese word that can be literally translated as finger pressure. It is a pressure point massage in which the practitioner applies pressure on the recipient’s body with the fingers, hands, elbows or knees. It is a holistic therapy based on the meridians. All these meridians are linked to an organ and / or body function. Shiatsu is based on Traditional Chinese Medicine. Different forms of diagnosis (like hara/ belly-, back- or pulse diagnose) are used to determine the cause of the complaint and pressure is put on the meridians to balance body and mind.
Shiatsu is pleasant for anyone who wants to receive loving touch, get out of the head and back into the body. In addition, shiatsu can provide relief from complaints.
Shiatsu has a holistic approach and not only looks at a specific complaint, but at the client as a whole. In this way, shiatsu can provide relief from complaints.
Some complaints that shiatsu can help with:
– stress, burnout
