Shiatsu: A Japanese form of bodywork, Shiatsu therapists use finger and palm pressure to improve the individual’s flow of physical and emotional energy. The treatment will usually consist of rocking, stretching, massage of the head, back, feet, hands and pressure point work within the classic meridians. It is a form of meditation for the giver and the practitioner will benefit as well as the client during a treatment.

What to Expect

What to Expect

The treatment usually lasts between 45 minutes to an hour. Prior to the Shiatsu treatment your practitioner may do a 15-minute intake session and then a reading of your Hara (or energy center). This is located on your belly. The Hara reading will consist of a very gentle and non invasive palpation of the abdomen. The Hara is like the base of all the meridians of the body and is a very important tool in beginning any shiatsu treatment. The practitioner can get a sense energetically what is going on with the client through a Hara diagnosis. Combined with an oral intake it will help the shiatsu practitioner work on the meridians of your body and organ systems bringing them into balance.
