The ancient healing art of Shiatsu empowers your body’s free flow of energy. Releasing stress, pain and tension by encouraging circulation, flexibility and relaxation. Powerful and lasting results that optimise your physical, emotional and spiritual potential.
Developed in Japan at the beginning of the 20th century, Shiatsu comes from the Japanese word meaning ‘finger pressure’. Springs from the same Traditional Oriental medicine principles as acupuncture and draws on aspects of western anatomy and physiology.
Shiatsu involves various techniques such as stretching, joint mobilisation, pressure and holding various parts of the body. Pressure may be applied using thumbs, fingers, palms, forearms, elbows, knees and feet at the appropriate angle and depth along channels of the body, which differentiates Shiatsu from massage.
Rare videos of Shizuto Masunaga (1925-1981), founder of Zen Shiatsu. Born into Shiatsu, he became one of the main influences of Western Shiatsu in the 1970’s.
Masunaga integrated the ancient model of Shiatsu with western physiology and psychology. He also introduced additional channels of the body to work. With a nurturing supportive connection to a person’s whole being he promoted the natural healing elements of the body.
