About Shiatsu

Shiatsu is an Asian form of manual therapy. It originated in China and is thousands of years old. The shiatsu method was further developed in Japan, where it is a recognised therapy. Shiatsu is not only applied to treat physical complaints and pain, it can also be effective in healing emotional problems. Shiatsu promotes self healing and improves the body´s own resistances.

Shiatsu aims to restore a patient´s balance where it is needed and to remove obstructions in the flow of energy. The Japanese call this energy ‘Ki’; a form of energy that flows through the body via meridians, or energy pathways. The meridians are connected to the organs in the body and, through a fine network, to the muscles, joints, skin and the senses. By treating the meridians, shiatsu has a direct effect on organs such as the heart, kidneys, liver and intestines.
