What is it like to receive Shiatsu?

Shiatsu uses perpendicular pressure to stimulate acupressure points and help bring the body into balance.  Receiving Shiatsu is a deeply relaxing experience that encourages your body to let go and completely relax. It does this by stimulating the parasympathetic division of the Autonomic Nervous System, leading to a state of calmness and tranquility.

How does Shiatsu work?

What is the concept behind Shiatsu?

The central concept of Shiatsu is to enable energy to flow around your body more easily, which leads to improved blood circulation, endorphin release and the elimination of toxins.

By applying pressure to meridians and acupressure points, the flow of energy improves, your body begins to repair itself and all major systems begin to function better.

Over time, your body feels rejuvenated, calmer and more energised.
