In Japanese SHI means “Fingers” and ATSU “Pressure”. This therapy finds its origins in Taoism Philosophy and Traditional Chinese Medicine. Shiatsu aims to release tensions from the body and mind in helping Yin and Yang energies of the body to flow freely. A holistic view of the receiver combined with the practitioner 2 hands working in synchronization with the pressure that is deep, stable and slowly moving along the body awaken the body’s innate healing ability, to release emotional, mental, and physical blockages, and to restore life essence and present awareness. This simple, meditative, non-doing, healing touch can open hearts, tone chakras, restore peace, and connect us with our inner wisdom. People often compare it to micro-osteopathy and experience it as “relaxing, nurturing, non-invasive and deeply therapeutic”.
