Shiatsu (Japanese Acupressure) Massage
Our Shiatsu therapist Fiona Carson MRSS asked us to post this video about Shiatsu (Japanese Acupressure) Massage. In the video you’ll hear from patients about their experience and see demonstrations of what is involved with this therapy.
This Japanese dynamic hands-on healing system uses the power of touch, pressure and gentle stretching techniques to balance the body’s energy system, our emotions and the functions of our internal organs. It is based on Oriental Medicine Theory (like acupuncture), Shiatsu (or Japanese Acupressure) massage can help in a wide range of conditions – from specific injuries to more general symptoms of poor health. Shiatsu is a deeply relaxing, yet invigorating therapy and regular shiatsu can help to prevent the build up of stress in our daily lives. Shiatsu is a lovely nourishing therapy to have during pregnancy and can be performed in side-lying position. Many of the stretching techniques employed are very similar to Thai yoga massage.
