What is it
It is a natural technique of oriental origin, behind which there are ancient traditions of philosophy and art of healing. It is a method to preserve and regain health by rebalancing the body’s energy communication systems. In oriental medicine all diseases, symptoms and conditions are considered in relation to an imbalance in the person’s energy balance. This applies to all aspects, those related to the physical body, emotions, mind and spirituality. Shiatsu influences the movement of energy defined by the Orientals as KI, which circulates through channels called meridians. The operator applies different types of pressure along these meridians and on different areas to preserve and balance the flow of energy through organs, glands, muscles, joints, blood and throughout the body. The purpose of a shiatsu treatment is precisely to achieve energy balance so as to give the person a renewed sense of well-being.
