What is Shiatsu?
(Jap. 指 圧 En. Finger-pressure)
Shiatsu is a Japanese form of body therapy. It is based on the meridian system and the five-element theory of traditional Chinese medicine. The meridians are stimulated along the entire body by pressure with the thumb or palm of the hand. In this way an energetic contact emerges with the treated person. This is done with the necessary attention, sensitivity and openness towards the treated person. Shiatsu also includes various mobilisations and stretchings. My treatments always takes at least 1 hour.
