Shiatsu / Treatment
shi = Finger, atsu = Pressure
Shiatsu is practiced for prevention and in therapy.
Before a disorder turns into an ailment or a disease, prevention can help detecting and treating them within the pathways of energy. In therapy acute and chronic diseases, aches and ailments are treated and relieved. In this manner, Shiatsu focuses on the physical as well as on the mental and emotional causes.
The treatment is preceded by a personal conversation regarding the current state and health condition. It takes place in loose comfortable clothing and most of the times lying on a futon mattress. Simple and supportive finger pressure can be enough to overcome inner blockages, to relax the body and soul and to stimulate the healing process.
