About Shiatsu

Shiatsu is a physical therapy which uses a combination of pressure points, gentle manipulation and stretching to re-energise weak areas and reduce tension. The recognition of Shiatsu in the world is growing. Shiatsu originated in Japan but since the 1970’s has grown internationally. It is an evolving form of bodywork, incorporating influences from both East Asian Medicine and Western therapies.

The body has amazing capacities for self-healing, such as the immune system and the ability to regrow damaged tissue. Shiatsu, along with other traditional East Asian therapies, focuses on assessing and strengthening these systems in the body. So Shiatsu does not treat or aim to cure any specific condition but aims to support the body function at its best, increasing wellbeing.
