get your hands on well being

Holistic. Profoundly relaxing. Rejuvenating and rebalancing. The ancient art of Shiatsu, firmly rooted in more than 3500 years of Asian medicine, is one of the oldest and most effective forms of natural healing – healing with hands.

Shiatsu draws its working principles from the same foundation as acupuncture, but does not involve needles or instruments. Unlike massage therapy, no oils are required. Through sensitive touch, a Shiatsu therapist uses thumbs, palms, fingers and sometimes elbows and knees to apply pressure at various points of the body, as well as gentle stretching techniques to relieve a wide spectrum of symptoms and encourage the body’s natural healing abilities.

Whether it be back pain, shoulder or neck problems, headaches, fatigue or the pent-up stress of daily life, Shiatsu stands on its own as an opportunity to honour and appreciate the uniqueness of your physical, emotional and spiritual self.

Take your health in your own hands and try Shiatsu today.
