Shiatsu is a holistic healing art based on communicative touch. Rooted in Traditional Chinese Medicine, and incorporating aspects of modern physiology and psychology, Shiatsu addresses both immediate and chronic health issues, as well as supporting the maintenance of optimum health and well-being.
The five-element approach has proved particularly effective for insomnia, stress, digestive issues, headaches, muscular strains, anxiety and depression, back pain, or just the general sense that something is not quite right. Shiatsu is good at accessing and releasing problems hidden from the analytical mind.
The essence of Five Element Shiatsu is to energise personal change. Shiatsu can help release locked-in patterns, and allows you to adapt harmoniously to life’s flowing landscape. In all cases, Shiatsu aims to relieve pain and distress, and facilitate a balanced sense of well-being.
